Happy birthday to la_belledame, quem98, and upstart_crow!

State of the 'Song
Tired - on two days of intermittent sleep - but otherwise fine.

State of the Tor
Despite all her rage, she is still just a cat in a cage.

Really, though, she seems to have resigned herself to the cage for now. She tried to climb it a bit yesterday, but determined that there was no escape. Other than that, she was terribly lethargic. :( Well, she is very stoned right now. She's more alert today, and was crying and chirping at Adam this morning. There were some hairs in her food dish from last night and there are some in this morning's, so we hope she's eaten something, but I'll be keeping an eye on her today to make certain. If she doesn't eat, she's at risk of fatty liver disease - so if I don't see her eat today, we'll need to bring her back to the vet to have her Fentanyl patch removed and get her a shot of a different painkiller that'll be less effective, but won't nauseate her.

So far, we've gotten $735 in donations - thank you all! - and the kittycyborg auctions are up and running. Please go check them out!

Tomorrow I get Elayna back! Yaaaaaay! *throws confetti* I have missed her terribly, though sickness and cat injury have absorbed a lot of my time this go-around. Which, y;know - at least I've not had time to pine for her! She's had a wonderful time; she exhibited her photos on Wednesday, and she's dancing and presenting her clothing designs tonight. And then tomorrow she will be HOME.

Friday Memeage
Wearing: Lace-trimmed camisole and panties. What? It's summer.
Reading: Bad Science by Ben Goldacre and Hammered by Kevin Hearne.
Writing: Shayara, in the tiny scattered moments I've gotten to write.
Knitting: Riverrun scarf. I am now more concerned about sindrian stealing this than I am about Elayna stealing it. He keeps fondling the scarf, you guys.
Planning: I actually might head back to bed now; serious exhaustion. Stupid sleep dep. After that is writing, getting the house all ready for Elayna's return, and hopefully getting close to finishing the scarf. Tonight is date night with feste_sylvain.
Tomorrow: Grocery shopping, hopefully going through my BPAL to put some rarities up for auction at kittycyborg... and picking up Elayna! Hopefully taking her to the Hungry Tiger Street Festival tomorrow night with grntserendipity and sindrian (and Adam, if we can talk him into it).
Sunday: If Elayna's up for it, and I hope she is, a visit to the MFA! The Chihuly exhibit is closing Monday.

Best wishes and love to Torbutt, and also Elayna and you and the rest of the gang.

Pics maybe someday. We'll talk to mangosteen. :)
5th-Aug-2011 10:07 pm (UTC) - Oh that's really nice

I put it on G+

Thanks for the pointer.

The Chihuly exibit is amazing. I hope you make it!

sindrian and I saw it a few weeks ago - but Elayna, Adam, and grntserendipity haven't, so I really hope Elayna's up to it! I think she'll love it. :)

meat babyfood, maybe thickened with potato flakes, works well for force-feeding cats to re-start their appetites- roll it into bits the size of peas, and mash then against the top of the cat's mouth 9which is very corrugated). Sometimes just a bit of this gets the cat's hunger cycle working again.

Poor Tor!

Thankfully, she has her appetite back! She scarfed half a can of gooshy food this morning.

Thank you!

Love that scarf pattern. Is that all wrap&turn or is it drop-stitchy?

Kitty's off the patch now, and wants to go out? Does she have anything to read in there? (You know I typed this totally in earnest; only at "there" did I pause. "Oh wait. She won't be able to turn the pages with that leg. Never mind."
Give her snuggles from me.

Drop-stitchy! It alternates among garter, yo/k2tog, and multiple yos that get dropped on the next row.

We should set her up with an audiobook.
