Isn't she adorable! I have catnip bubbles, its a non-toxic bubble solution with catnip in it, so you blow bubbles with it. It is hysterical watching them try and catch the bubbles!
I acutally like cool, rainy, gray weather. I just don't want to get out of bed in it. Don't ask why I'm in LA. I've lived in Seattle, want to move back there as soon as I'm done with school. Crazy Seattleite who actually enjoys rain.
I have always said that I wish cat nip did the same for me as it does for the cat. Life would be much easier stoned sometimes. LOL, just kidding. I have a cat nip video that I play for one of the cats. It has mice and birds moveing around. he will sit there for 45 minutes jumping and pawing at the TV. It is funny and I put it in when I am sad. It makes me laugh so hard I end up crying. Animals are so awesome.
I came home from my first D&C and went to bed. At the time we only had two cats. The would take turns coming and sitting with me for the first two days, I lost a lot of blood and was sick. They would sleep on my tummy. One would leave go down the stair and meow. Withing 2 minutes the other cat would show up and climb on my tummy. DH was not around, (soon to be ex) but the girls took such good care of me.
Do you have a hot water bottle or a heating pad? That always helps me with stomach cramps. And peppermint tea is supposed to be really soothing.
I love my cats, I think they are one of the things that have kept me sane and functioning through this. They know when I need a little love and they'll just come up and snuggle. It's really hard to be in a bad mood when you have a cat sitting next to you purring his head off. They don't judge, they don't say stupid hurtful things thinking that they are helping. They are simply there. I think humans could stand to take a lesson from them. Their simple love and simple demands make the dark days a little easier. And having a little one running around acting like a typical crazy kitten makes me laugh. A friend found the litter and momma cat, it's kitten season here and the shealters are all full of cats. I wasn't planning on another cat, but she needed a home and I need something to love on.
I had a really hard time after my d&c. I don't react well with sedatives and anesthesia, so I got home and spent the next 6 hours curled on the bathroom floor retching. The only time I got off the floor was to let me ex in; he was brining me maxi pads, pretty much the only kind thing he did. The cats stayed with me, crammed into my little bathroom. That was a Thursday, and the Saturday after I was typical me and was pushing too hard. I was baby sitting a friend's child, something I didn't want to do, but the child is special needs and my friend trusts very few people with her. Right when I left I started bleeding a LOT, had to drive myself in to the ER. Ended up there was a tear right on the fallopian tube which bleeds like nuts. My obgyn decided that we could wait a little, try some hormone therapy and see if it would close on its own, but if it didn't I would have to get a salpingo-oophorectomy. Ended up losing the tube and the ovary. That sucks, I'm young and that's half my fertility. I only shared with a few friends IRL, it seems like this subject makes people really uncomfortable and they end up saying some really stupid things. I like how they cats react. They just sit next to you and stay with you. I wish people could figure that out.
