Someone light a match!

July 17, 2010 7:54 AM

I guess the tuna and tilapia finally had it's revenge on me this morning. I woke up at 3:30 AM and Stimpy was next to me grooming herself, and then it hit me! WHAT WAS THAT SMELL? Horrified, I turned the light on half expecting to see a mess on the bed. Thankfully she had used her litter box but OMG! Seriously, it made the eyes water! I lit a candle and a few matches but it took a while.

We have the weekend off finally. Stimpy was hiding under the bedskirt again in anticipation of having to go into the crate. I wonder how long it will take her to realize it is not happening today.I usually keep the room pretty tidy and do not ask for any housekeeping on the weekends. For now it is kind of nice to relax. There is some kind of sport event happening with high school kids here so the place is loaded with kids. They were running down the halls, yelling, slamming doors. Seriously, what kind of parent does NOT know that is improper behavior at a hotel?

Stimpy is doing very well. She has not shown any side effects yet and we are nearly halfway through the treatments. They say sometimes a sunburn like rash could develop but it is easily treated. She grooms herself daily, jumps, chases the laser light, seems to have normal urinary and bowel movements so I am optimisitic about this. It is sure an emotional roller coaster though.

Let me tell you about a small kitten we rescued a while back. While at a Valero gas station, we came out of the door and I looked down and heard this faint meow. There was a poor little kitten that someone had abandoned and it did not look like she would last the night. I went in and bought her some food and then took her over to Dana's rescue. At that time, we only had Stimpy and I was not sure how she would react to a new kitten. We sponsored this little kitten and named her Valero. We paid for her vet treatments, etc and helped her recover. Dana is really wonderful with sick animals and she was very instrumental in Valero's recovery.

Here is a picture of her the day we took her to the rescue


She is a beautiful siamese tabby mix. She was so gentle and accepting of everything. The day I took her to the vet with Privet, she sat calmly in her crate the entire time. Fortunately she was not feline leukemia positive. We got her vaccinations and treated her for fleas and ticks and a short time later, we found a wonderful home for her. A nurse adopted her and they are a perfect match. The nurse's mother refers to Valero as her "grand kitty".

Valero (aka Val now) has really turned into a beautiful cat, and very playful and lots of character. It is wonderful to be able to rescue one more from certain death. Here are a few pictures of her now. She is simply beautiful.

I just came across this picture of Privet. She is a real sweetheart. She loves to lay in your lap for hours and any time you lay down, she is instantly up on you and she will curl up and go to sleep. Cats do keep us calm I guess. I think this is Privet's way of telling me to just chill and relax. I took this picture with my phone so it is not the best quality.


Today my sister and niece are leaving on a road trip going to Custers Battlefield, Yellowstone National Park and a few more places in that area. I would probably be with them right now had this cancer not come up with Stimpy. There are no regrets though, I am where I need to be.
