My elderly, arthritic and cognitively failing older cat managed to get bitten by another cat (possibly his sister) and yesterday I realised it was infected when he turned his arse towards me in the bed and I was facing a leaking wound. I took him to the vets today where they shaved his wound site- RIGHT next to his arse - and drained out a load of pus. They asked me if he had ever worn a cone, which he hasn’t - but they were concerned that he would lick his arse then his wound, potentially transferring a load of bacteria into his already infected wound. They gave me one to take home and advised that they understood if he couldn’t tolerate it. Really, it’s the fact that he has dementia and I couldn’t bear to leave him freaking the fuck out wondering what was on his head. So I’ve opted for the second course of action which is to follow him around and distract him every time he tries to lick his arse/ wound and distract him. The distraction takes the form of catnip and treats and soothing baby talk. Currently, I’m laid on the bed and he is next to me with pus oozing out onto the pillowcase that I put on the sheets to stop him leaking exudate everywhere. It is soaking through the sheets of course and stinks. Every time he tries to go for his arse I put a treat out of his eyeline and I say hey, look at THAT and he turns and looks and nibbles then goes back to his arse. I repeat the same thing with teaspoons of ice cream.

It’s gonna be a long night.

On the way home from dropping off Gohan for neutering we get a call on the way home that he’s already been neutered so we can come back and pick him up. I never gave his scrotum a squeeze to test them out but he looked like he was still “ complete” to me and we know the awful people next door didn’t have it done as Rebecca had talked to them about it long ago since he was an outdoor cat. They must have acquired him from someone who had hadl it done. But he got his vaccines updated and flea medicine so it wasn’t a wasted trip not to mention a $ savings and post surgery issues which might have been a little tricky for him.

Awaiting the arrival of the next atmospheric river i.e. pineapple express this time. It’s a half an hour late but I have a pot of beef bourgogne in the oven to enjoy over the next few days. The house already smells fantastic.

Tonight, I feel like I'm being "a bit" of a stereotype.

So, it's just past 7:15pm on a Saturday, and I'm in my pjs, at home in Montreal. And I'm watching my home team, the Habs, on the tube. Plus, I've got a nice cold (non-alcoholic) beer by my side. The cat has been fed.

This hardly ever happens these days, Saturday evening being my weekly "let loose and go out" adventure. But this week, my usual partner in crime was not available, so, home rest it is. Plus my beloved Habs are hardly ever on for me since I refuse to get cable (I watch too much tv anyway).

So, as you can imagine, I feel like I'm being a bit of a stereotypical Canadian old geezer, huh!

And I'm smiling!

Six hours of dancing to my favorite local bands for a local charity that means a lot to me. Glorious weather to boot! Exhausted with kitty next to me resting quietly while jazz pours out of my speakers.

My city and surrounding area were hit with a nasty freezing rain storm a couple of days ago. Lots and lots of older trees were unable to bear the brunt of it and, en masse, shed limbs all over the place. The beautiful old park across the street is a royal mess now. Lots of people (> 1mln) with no electricity since then but things are getting back into shape quickly now. Also, many people, like me, are/were without internet service. Mine just came back about an hour ago.

I missed you, world.

It's approaching 10pm and it just struck me that I haven't had any chocolate in any form all day. I might as well complete this (extremely) rare (for me) feat.

I found the most exquisite but sad thing earlier today on the ground amongst some ivy.
A tiny bird's nest made out of lawnmower grass clippings and moss and there were 3 little eggs and (?) some fledgling feathers in it. It was so tiny I first wondered if it was an Easter decoration that someone had discarded. The eggs were so wee, they looked like sweets.
I'm not a Birder so I was half wondering if one had hatched and flurried about, gone to fly the nest and knocked it down from up high.
Nonsense to the aggressiveness, I've seen more aggression on the my little pony message board......I mean I was told.

You know, I might think life has some challenges at the moment but one thing I am VERY happy about is that I’m not in a submerged vessel at the bottom of the sea with limited oxygen, probably tangled up in the wreckage of the ship I went to explore. I mean FUCKING HELL

:oops: I just now realized I've been (accidentally) logged out from here for quite a while now. Maybe like two weeks? I had been wondering why there were no new posts appearing at each of my visits (as a guest I guess). Boy! I have a lot to catch up on.

:D :D

Hello soupy!!
I have spent some days in Tallinn with my (much) older sister doing some roots exploring and whatnot. Four days of incredible sunshine then two days of thunderstorms. This morning I stuffed my face with my last hotel breakfast - black bread and amazing porridge - and just got to ferry terminal to go to Helsinki to go back to UK. I looked at my heavy luggage and decided to upgrade to the business lounge. Fucking HELL- it’s like a huge floating posh hotel. They’ve got eggs cooked eight ways and all sorts of crazy Finnish pastries. There is also a shitload of booze and champagne that I’m trying to steer clear of. But what the hell! It’s not like I’m the captain or anything. Might just get a snifter…
