Last week was just absolutely crazy. There was something going on every single day/evening.. I usually keep to myself, would be considered a shut-in if I didn’t have to go to work everyday….
My dearest friend from Paris was in town with her boyfriend and his daughters. I had so much fun with them, but boy my friend runs a tight ship. She had the family doing something every day – it reminded me of my family trips way back when… a story for another time. They family left on Wednesday, heading for Southern California (where you can actually get in the water without a wetsuit) and good ol’ Las Vegas (you have to see it at least once!).
In addition, Zoey cut her foot really badly and had to go to the hopital on Monday. I woke up on Monday with blood all over the bed, and it wasn’t from me. Zoey was curled up next to my head, which is unusual… when I got out of bed I saw all the blood. I checked her out, and sure enough, she had a deep gash/cut on the back of her bony little foot. She was so sad, the vet said it was very painful and they had to put her down, give her some anesthesia to fix her up. She was a bit out of it last week, but she is back to her funny furry self now.
We also had a ‘coon problem ’round these parts. A mother and baby pair of raccoons settled themselves into my attic – which would be fine with me if they weren’t so mean and hated cats so much. The bad news is the mom raccoon was trapped and euthenized, the good news is the baby raccoon is being domesticated by a friend of the trapper. I’ve just received an update, the baby is being hand fed and is eating everything that he/she is given. Next step is to ‘get cuddly’ with the raccoon… I can’t wait to get another progress report.
