All Back to Normal

 As you can see, I don't have any trouble looking at Mom any more.  The bitey is healing up nicely -- the redness and swelling is gone, except for just a little at the puncture site.  I discovered the dangler inside the Alpine Scratcher and played with it for a few seconds.  For some reason that made Mom really happy.

Karen Jo:  It made me really happy because it means you are fully over your bad experience with all the moving around.  You had stopped playing altogether and now you are playing again and having fun.

Emma: Mom was afraid that this picture wouldn't come out at all.  When she pushed the button to take the picture, I was lying on my side and looking at her.  As soon as I heard the click, I got up and walked away.  Herman and I played chase today for the first time since we got back home.  Mom is very amused, because I have been the one trying to get the game started.  I have been jumping over Herman and racing past him very closely.  What finally worked was when he was walking down the hall and I sped past him.  He couldn't resist that.  Mom doesn't know which one of us did it, or maybe both of us, but lots of little toys were pulled out of the toy box with holes when she got home.  I also pulled out the octopus and catnip banana from a toy box and played with both of them. All in all, we are totally back to normal.

Karen Jo:  This makes me very happy.  Stress can do very bad things to kitties with FIV and feline leukemia.  I am thrilled that both of my darlings have come through this with flying colors.  My digestive system is also back to normal.  I received the labrodite pendant from the auction and ML even threw in a pair of earrings.  I am delighted.  I will post about them tomorrow with a picture.  I didn't see any smoke or fire coming from the ski hill, so I think the fire is definitely out there. I hope that the local paper gets back on schedule soon, so I can find out some things for sure.  The rest of the fire rages on.  In an arc from almost due west to almost due north, the mountains are dotted with fire. It looks like a thousand campfires, but it is many miles away.  Since this fire is so huge, the best that the fire fighters can do is contain it and wait for the rains.  The percentage of containment goes up a little every day, but the devastation is tremendous.  The Santa Clara Indian Reservation watershed is burning, so they are looking forward to real problems in the near future, not that they don't have enough now.  Please send them some purrs.

Thank you for the Birthday wishes. Glad to see you are back home safe and sound. We get a lot of wildfires here in FL and it can be a very scary thing. Take care and be safe.
