Resistance


 Well mom had a rough night.  She was wide awake until 4am.  She got a few hours sleep today, but boy she has had to resist having a nap today.  Tonight she's finally tired.  Yippee!!

Home


 Mums home after night shift now.  She's not sure if and when she should be sleeping.  Her body clock is all muddled up.  I say sleep like a cat - just lie down when you feel sleepy mum.

 Mum didn't realize until tonight that she forgot to give you a picture yesterday.   She's busy on night shift and I'm busy avoiding my new foods.

15


 Happy Birthday to me - I'm a big grown up 15 year old today.  Mum woke up and sung to me and gave me kisses.   I was thrilled!!!  No kidney biscuits today, I got a big tasty fancy feast when mum got home.

Thank you for all the kind comments.  Mum and I appreciated them all.  We are lucky to have so many sweet friends thinking of us.

Bloods


 Today was mums day off work and treat Tuesday.   She had a nice pastry for breakfast sitting in the sunshine, and then we had an appointment.  At the new vets.  I was due for my arthritis joint injection and mum wanted me to have my vaccination and I had a couple of mats  on my tummy that needed to be taken off.   The vet was nice and suggested a blood test as it was a while since I had had one.

So we came home and mum had lunch while I sulked in the bedroom.   The vet rung this afternoon and the bloods show some renal failure, but thankfully at the early stages.  I have to now go on special renal biscuits and see the vet again in  a month.  Mum did have a little cry and then got herself up to dish up my feast.  I got extra cuddles tonight too.

Confrontation


 Mum got a lecture from someone at work today about how they weren't getting the vaccination, how it's all a scam, worse than the Nazis, how it's all a form of control and all about money.  Mum wonders then if they don't believe in science or doctors advice why they were at the hospital in the first place?  Anyway Mum didn't engage with the argument as she knew that was what they were fishing for.  Mum wasn't surprised at the stories - she knows all the excuses.  It was the tone and the arrogance - like they thought they were educating her.  

She came home and had a drink tonight.  And gave me cuddles.

Pastoral


 It looks very green in the garden at the moment  - lots of lovely green growth.   I like to sit out and soak up the sun.

Caturday


 I stayed home and licked catnip off my birdie.  Mum went out and ate chicken salad, bought some candles, looked at shops, ate some rice, drunk some fruit juice, walked in the sun and then relaxed.   Good times.

Just Chilling


 Life is pretty quiet for me lately.   Mums working lots and I'm looking after the napping.   We're a good team though.

Treat Tuesday


 Mum figured out on her roster that she has the next 5 Tuesdays off work and decided to make them Treat Tuesdays.  Today she didn't feel like spending money, so she did things for herself ar home.

- started a new library book

- hair mask and facial scrub

- watched a movie while knitting on the couch

- took a nap

- chicken schnitzel and salad for dinner

I got a good brushing, a feast, lots of kisses and some temptations - so treats for me too.

Drizzling


 Mum wonders how it is sunny on the days she has to work and drizzling on her days off?

Worker


 Mums seven day stretch finished tonight.  She's exhausted  - me too.

Busy


 Mum has knitted another lot of mask extenders for her work colleagues.   She has made 35 so far, but has more to do.  At the moment she has to wear surgical masks the whole time at work, except when drinking and eating.   She also has to wear them on public transport and in places like supermarkets and at the library , which can be a long 10 hours of mums day.  Mums poor ears get quite sore most days.  Mum is trying to make one for everyone she works with and for her friends as well.

Hello October


 Mum was going to say Happy October but she realized that I look a bit unhappy in the photo.  I'm a happy girl, I just don't like to smile for the camera.  This month I'll be 15 - and my mum says I can do exactly what I want.
