Well, it’s Wednesday again. And I’m back with another card – blogging it while I watch the lightning flash outside and listen to the rumble of thunder. And hope my sweet kitty Katy isn’t scared!
Oh. Did I not tell you about Katy?? Well, she’s my little tuxedo girl…
…she and her brother have lived with us since they were about 7 weeks old. That’s when I scooped them up out of a rain drain – on the 4th of July in 2003. Leo (her brother) was sitting with a couple of kids on the edge of the street. I saw him as I drove by (I see them all – it’s kind of my curse) and worried about what those kids might do to him. You know – kids. 4th of July. Black kitten.
I went back to my apartment. I paced. I tried to talk myself out of it. After all, I had my older kitty, Toe – and we were quite happy. Me. Wayne. One cat. Nice dynamic.
I picked up the cat carrier and a bag of Tender Vittles and returned to the scene.
45 minutes later – I’ve got Leo. I’ve got Katy – she was way hidden – she’s always been the skittier of the two. The kids think I’m a cat whisperer – cuz they hadn’t been able to catch either one of them! I started to figure out how to find them a home.
So here we are thirteen years later. 😉
Katy hadn’t been doing well – so we finally pulled up our big girl panties (well, I did – Wayne….??) and managed to catch her and get her in the carrier and to the vet. She needed teeth work. Bad!
Today was the big day. We went to pick her back up and discovered the extent of her surgery. BIG. Decided to leave her another night so they can manage her pain. And give her another shot of antibiotic tomorrow. Before we start with the twice daily pill routine. Like that’ll ever work!
Hence – I’m worrying about her being by herself, not feeling good. Scared of the the thunder. 🙁
So – I distracted myself by making a card – cuz sitting here worrying won’t help anyway – and she’s probably still pretty zorked (yes, that’s what the vet said!) by the anesthesia, so she’s probably sound asleep.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 😉 I think she probably is, don’t you?
The card I made to distract myself uses the pretty Occasions stamp set called First Sight. I combined some paper from Love Blossoms and a sentiment from One Big Meaning. And I ended up with a card that’s sweet as a chocolatier’s confection. Take a look-see:
