Cancer was the first thing that came to mind – of course – when Catja began to sneeze about 4 days ago. She had sneezed once or twice earlier in the day, and there had been a hairball, and loss of appetite, as in not begging for food constantly, and not even finishing her daily […]

At vet’s now with Catja, who, apologies to Woody, is having her name officially changed to Catja. This means i will have to get a new name ornament for her collar, switching from Ohm, which now Woody can use for his own future cat because it will no longer be taken. So good news, Woody! […]

So far this week, all the office staff and docs have been walking around like zombies. Andrew’s obituary was in the paper; several articles about him in Post Gazette. The funeral is Saturday. All day yesterday, which was such a crazy booked day, I was completely distracted from thoughts about Andrew, his family, and how […]

When we got home tonight after a nice dinner out at Toast with Carol and Paul (does toast refer to toasting somebody or toasting bread? Given that it is the name of a restaurant, it could be either. Intentionally ambiguous, I am sure), Catja was not to be found. However, I knew she was not […]

Weigh in today not that bad – only up 1.8 pounds from last week. Good. So what did Indonto celebrate? 8 2 much, of course. But it was too much fruit, which was very tasty, so not as bad as it could have been. The strawberries this season have been absolutely delightful, and I managed […]

When you have a cat to whom you have become quite close, especially if you have known the cat for three or more years, you get to understand what the cat says. For instance, each cat, just like us, speaks a similar intra-species language, but has, her own unique way, within that language, of expressing […]

This represents Catja, who, in all fairness, probably has lost some weight. We are restricting her to one large or two small cans a day of cat food. For the most part. I mean, occasionally, we start a bit of a fresh can, or cb tosses her a bit of chicken (usually spicy) but, although […]
