In which there is no linkity, but there IS a very cute cat photo

My neighborhood had a fiber outage during most of my linkity time – and I love you guys, but not enough to stay up really late to do linkity when I have to work the next day! 😀

In which there isn’t any linkity, with an update on Mayhem’s rough week (she’s ok!!!)

Mayhem and I spent a good chunk of Sunday afternoon at the emergency vet because, while she’d been fine when I went to bed Saturday night, she was not fine when I got up Sunday morning. She was huddled in a corner of the bathroom, had no interest in eating, and seemed to have some pain around one of her back legs.

“Woe is me.” -Mayhem

Turns out, after x-rays, she has osteoarthritis in her lumbar spine area (her back near the base of her tail) and in her hips. D’oh! (She turns 12 on May 31st.) Don’t know if it had been getting progressively worse and she just hit the wall, or if she managed to aggravate it overnight. She got some subcutaneous fluids at the emergency vet and I gave her painkillers twice a day for a couple days. I didn’t need to confine her, because she set herself up in the dining room, under the dining room table and chairs, and mostly hung out there for a few days. I moved a kitty bed, water, and a litter box over there for her. She stayed pretty quiet Monday and Tuesday, but seemed much more herself Wednesday morning. Unfortunately, it seems like she can’t really jump onto stuff very well, so I suspect I’ll be figuring out ways to facilitate her getting to her favorite spots.

So! It’s been quite a week, what with the emergency vet and then the followup with our regular vet. I’m enjoying a couple of days off and decided that would include a little linkity vacation. 🙂

Have a great weekend, everyone! Thanks for visiting us here. 🙂

No linkity, but hey – this time there’s at least a cute cat picture…

Continuing the saga from Monday… I got home around 5:30 am Monday (went into the office at 2 pm Sunday) (shhhh… the cats totally ended up missing their Sunday dinner). After 5 hours of sleep, I was logged back in to work (but from my chaise lounge in my living room at least). Worked until 2 am Tuesday, then slept for 6 hours. You get the picture. If it hadn’t been Thanksgiving yesterday, I wouldn’t have had any idea what day it was… Not sure if there’s an end in sight quite yet – I have days and days of stuff left to do…

Happy 13th Birthday, Chaos Kitty!

It’s hard to believe he’s 13. He’s still such a hellion. Here’s his origin story.*

“Huh?” -Chaos


*He’s outlived both his brother and his mother…

I think work eating linkity every three to four weeks is sadly the new normal

But here, have a cute picture of a slightly annoyed Panther Princess!
