I just haven’t had much of anything to post this week. Each work day has flown by almost in a haze as we try to get things in place for first day of classes next week. I’ve been one tired bunny in the evenings but I have been doing some blogland reading. I think its partially the shock of the end of the holidays coming in full steam and then smack we’re done.
Angelica Pickles is doing well and with a new name. The students as you may recall named her Angelica and then added Pickles but it seemed I couldn’t “warm” up to calling her Angelica. When Marc mentioned how he felt about the name that was all I needed. She is now “Miss Abagaile Angelica Pickles” but I’m calling her “Abby”. I think her other life name must have been similar because her ears perked right up as soon as we called her Abby. Thats a more cuddly kind of name more suitable for her.
I was cleaning out a closet and she slipped right into a little bit of space I’d cleared up.
I’m going to give the Vet a call tomorrow because its been almost a month since she was declawed and she tends to hold up her left paw or give a little limp at times. Otherwise she is a very happy little lady and it feels like she’s been in my life longer than only one month.
I hope your day has been a good one…. Judi xoxo
I don’t know. I wasn’t going to post about this because I don’t really think there is one…mouse I’m talking about..but since I’ve told you this much I’ll tell you about it. Last week I was sitting on my sofa, laptop on my lap and it was getting late and just from the corner of my eye I thought I saw some scampering…movement…and when I looked fast I could have sworn I saw a mouse running from under my heater towards my diningroom buffet! Nahhhhh I said. I looked that way for a minute and wondered where Kelly might be…Kelly the kitty who just turned 20 years old. No place. So I put the laptop down and caaarrrefully walked that way but didn’t see anything more.
I sat down and sort of forgot about it as a I resumed my blogging and if I didn’t see again from the corner of my eye a movement going from where I thought a mouse might have scampered back to the heater. No…please no. Carefully I looked around and hated that it was time to go to bed actually. I didn’t see anything more but then a mouse wouldn’t just be sitting there. I was sure I was still mistaken..somehow. I forced myself to go to bed knowing that Kelly would be there and surely a mouse would wake her up…thats what cats do..sniff out mice.
The next evening I stopped at Canadian Tire to get a mousetrap JUST in case. They were closed and I was going out of town the next day. So I decided I was just seeing things and we’ll wait and see. Last week I noticed that a one of the tails of a Donkey’s Tail plant I had planted this summer was missing all kinds of little bits off one tail. I disregarded it thinking that it just dropped them…someplace. It sits on my window behind sheers in the livingroom.
Well…last night after being away for a long weekend and watering plants I noticed the Donkey’s Tail has little teeth marks and more bits off the 4 tails. I don’t understand it. It couldn’t have been Kelly. With her age she has stopped bouncing up to that window. Marc said it has to be Kelly. I know that I did leave the diningroom chair against the door to the balcony and maybe she might have decided to wander around and bounce up there but I can’t imagine that. She never even looks that way. Here are some pics of what happened though the digital didn’t capture the teeth marks. So do I tell the Super that my unit might have a mouse in it? Or is it just Kelly? By the way….it was a mouse.
CONTINUES TO BE A MOUSE KIND OF DAY..*LOL*
Well since I was back from vacation last week I have had some mouse issues at WORK too. Computer mouse issues. It keeps stalling…giving beeps…working…lighting…and not. Today, I think I figured out that it is dying and isn’t related to our network or anything else. *Shaking my head*. I was able to crawl under the desk of an absent co-worker and “catch” her mouse and trade. So at least that was definately a mouse issue and is all fixed now.
