Update...and an Alert!

The alert is this: I have no internet access at home right now (and precious little TV, tho' there IS signal, so I can watch, if I can stand the fuzz and snow!) - the cable line has been compromised, probably by the high winds we've had the past two days. Cox will be out in the morning Saturday, and I hope this will all be rectified quickly, but I won't have email after I leave work today (at least for a bit). I've been working on Valkyrie Seraphim (now why is it that it seems terribly appropriate to be working on something called Valkyrie when the wind has been howling and tearing at the windows?) and have gotten quite a bit done! Yes, Catie I have been semi-monogamous!

And as for CC, the medical tests so far have come back fine, other than that she's operating on the equivalent of only one kidney - as the vet says, that's not really a big deal, as we people donate kidneys and survive on only one just fine. So that's not her problem.

I left her at home yesterday, went back home at lunch to check on her, and finally last night decided that if there wasn't any change, she'd go back to the vet this morning. She did. They'll do an xray, at least, and evaluate for some other things, but at almost 18, if anything truly serious is found, we won't be performing heroics.

She's a very traditional calico who has never been happy - hence her name on this blog, the Calico Curmudgeon: a cranky old broad, mean and ornery. She got that way honestly. Some kitties should never be exposed to children. She was one of them. It formed her personality and we've just had to deal with it all these years.

Still, in a lot of ways she's a sweet girl. And just to spite me (as calicos do), she's probably planning on creating as much ruckus as she can before she makes her way to the Rainbow Bridge.

No wonder she was the kitty my late "spunky" mom liked the best!

Sorry about the internet...cable and such. This wind is amazing. We lost all power here at work yesterday. Nothing like sitting in the dark, in the cold without water...

Keeping my fingers crossed for CC.

*hugs* :)

Oh, I hope things turn out all right for CC; it's hard to see them unhappy...

I hope she'll be okay. I had a calico once--my daughter (2 at the time) named her Spot! But she had extra toes, which did not work in her favor as she would often fall out of the window sill---I've never seen a cat so clumsy!

I've been keeping up with the weather there at home and the winds have been pretty fierce. Guess what? They've been something ferocious here as well!! But the temps are in the mid 80's and the humidity is 110 percent! We are coming up on Monsoon season here.

Sorry to hear CC is having a hard time right now. I hope you don't have to make any hard decisions yet.

Keeping my fingers crossed that your internet and cable problems will be resolved soon. It's amazing how much we miss that stuff when it's not available!!!

Sorry CC isn't doing totally well. Hopefully she will just curmudgeon her way through it all.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
