I am alive!
This Saturday is the first Saturday I've had off in a month or more (and had it completely off...not off but have to cover for 3 hours off).
Bill and I are probably going to go to Iowa City and visit Leash on Life....I enjoy my adventures in IC...yes I do do do.
The kitties are curled up and ready for some naps, but I know Cordelia really wants to play. So before I do my morning jog (inside) I will run around the house with toys trailing behind me...just for her and Phoebe.
I honestly don't think I could've lucked out any more than I have with Phoebe. It's really a blessing to have her in our home, and I feel very grateful. I've been thinking back on Bella Mae these past few days, and going over my feelings.
I've decided that I feel thankful....and I do have a sense of relief. I feel relief not because I'm not necessarily having to clean up cat puke every day...but relief that Bella isn't in pain anymore. Allowing myself to recognize that I did good with her, but I am still allowed to do good now.
It seems kinda...cheesy...but I feel that Phoebe represents Bella's thankfulness. She's everything that one could want in a kitty...she loves to cuddle, purr, talk...she eats most moist food without any issue (doesn't eat dry)...she lets me brush her teeth with a cotton swab. Lets me trim her claws with little resistance....about everything (I haven't tried a bath yet!) I've wanted in a kitty, she's it. (This isn't saying Cordelia isn't everything to me!)
Other news...I think I'll walk to work again. My hope is that it will warm up enough today (40's) to melt some snow. Or at least clear it off the roads, then I'll move my car to the street. (meh)
