(no subject)

henry jumped over the gate to his pen last night without knocking it over. my baby is back.

we never found the stopper to his feeding tube. so we are using a qtip. only downside i've seen is the other cats, who love to play with qtips, are batting at henry's feeding tube now.

henry also took off his shirt somehow. so i think we may forgo the tshirt for now.

kam316 called this morning. she is a lifesaver and i can't believe she'll be here in a week. i'm so giddy! not just any friend, but my best until the end friend. so happy.

so i think our rent is going to be on time. we just got something that puts us over the top financially.

i'm so tired of candidate commercials. i will be glad when the voting is over.

i gave henry his meds alone today and did okay with it. it only took fifteen minutes. i can't wait until his pill gun gets here. i'm so sloppy with it i still get bit. i'm glad that cooking in a commercial kitchen taught me not to jump when i feel pain. in the kitchen, you can drop something hot or someone's order if you jump around every time you get burned. so when henry bites me, i just continue on and don't bother with the damage until i see the blood. and the damage is small. he got me on my cuticle today, he's gotten me there four times now, in the same place. darling kitty. but i got even the hard pills down him without a lot of trouble. and i gave him some vita cal. feeding time is in fifteen minutes.

oh yeah, and he puked on my side of the bed last night. i will forever turn the light on before climbing into bed after last night. ick and ew.

oh yeah, this is war

henry somehow, i still have no idea how, got back under my bed. i had to deconstruct my room. it's all put back together now and he is sulking at my closed bedroom door. he is definitely getting his energy back. he also peed on the floor. i have to move his litter box.

he sniffed at the food in the communal dish today but didn't eat any. he didn't try to clean it up, either. he just curled up in chloe's space under the speaker near the door to the balcony. chloe had no issues sharing it with him.

i'm bummed i can't let henry back in my room. it's just too stressful getting him out from under the bed, there isn't a lot of room for the bed to be moved. i don't want to stress him out when i'm getting him for a feeding. that is guaranteed vomit.

he won't sit through a feeding, i have to keep stopping him from walking away. at times i have to put him in my lap which causes him to whine the whole time. that is fun, i get to rub his belly and he gets to mew about how much he hates me. i can be hated. and i love hearing about it. the days when he wasn't making any noise really scared me.

i'm all full of confidence today. medicating the cat went well. i got the DVD/VCR player hooked up all by myself and got it programmed with just a little bit of help from the manual. i got my room put back together in record time and i picked up the boxes kam316 sent out ahead of her (and i took the car to do it). i'm all full of accomplishment. i'm also almost done with the laundry. oh, and i took some trash out when i went up to get the boxes.

small victories

i'm probably jinxing it, but he took his third feeding in a row without yarking. henry, i mean. he even took his pill without a lot of drama. he saved the drama for the pouting outside my door. he's not quick to his feet, so i don't have to fight him to get in there (where the bathroom is that doesn't have a litterbox in it).

i finally remembered to take my day meds about an hour ago and the seroquel has me cross eyed. i think i'll make some black beans and rice.
