That's where I've been hanging out since this afternoon.
Gilbert the cat found some more watch parts. He ate them. That's his bad habit: Eat everything.
I was in Pasadena when he began to show signs of being seriously ill.
Thus begins the gratitude journal:
I am extremely grateful to my Mom and to my daughter, who acted as point person with the emergency vets while I was down in Pasadena. (The cell phone got a workout.)
I'm also grateful to the emergency vet people. They don't like my cat, because when he's there, he's very unlikeable. Scary, even. But as soon as he gets home, he returns to the "I love you, cuddle with me now" side of his personality.
And that's where I've been--cuddling with Gilbert the cat, who will spend the next two weeks mostly living inside a renovated (especially for him) shower stall, so that he doesn't jump around.
Then, I might have to take the stitches out myself, because he's such a freak at the vet's.
But he's okay, and my daughter and mom are okay.
Yes, I'm grateful.
