If you don’t talk to your cat about catnip, who will?

Myka had a digestive distress starting Sunday, that peaked on Monday morning before dawn. She was blocked, her back legs moving to try to work it free. She was wasn’t eating or drinking anything except oat grass. I left her alone in the front room where she was passing time, and she came around. I saw unusual items in the litter box, and she started perking up. I gave her treats and oat grass and wet food. And I took some cat nip and rubbed it into her scratch pad, and she went bonkers. So I know that she has recovered now. A definite relief that there needs to be no vet visit.

Today is the dentist appointment, a little less than two and half hours away. I don’t expect much of anything, just a quick inspection and discussion. I’ll spend significantly more time waiting than actually seeing the dentist. It’s a simple six month check up. This is the only one that requires payment, and it will be a minimal visit fee.

I need to alter my sleep schedule. I’m losing way too much daylight. I can stay awake for the appointment today, tomorrow afternoon will be the test, with fasting from midnight on. Medical week begins.

Enjoying the spring weather. I’ll have the house open again this afternoon. I’ve switched from alpaca to denim.




The dental visit was gratis, so I won’t be out of pocket for any of the visits, except gas money. And I need to go to Bryan anyway.
