Sometimes there’s a story in a list

Daily Post Prompt: Observe

This is the top secret, stealth mode activated, intriguing, mysterious, Special Agent Nelson. And for the next few days, you get the privilege of caring for him! His next mission is in the vicinity, and therefore I’ve decided to let him stay for a few days while he accomplishes what is needed.

While he’s here, he’ll need lots of room to work. Please let him come out from time to time to get comfortable or snoop around while looking for clues. He likes to work alone, so if anyone else is out, they may want to go to their room while he prowls. Exercising his mind and body are both great ways to keep him working toward his goal. I’ve included a laser pointer, feather toy, and catnip should you need help in entertaining him.

With all this hard work, he’s going to be hungry! I let him eat some wet food (¼ of a can breakfast, lunch, and dinner) as well as having his dry food out all day. Now he has this problem of sometimes overeating, or else his stomach just gets upset from all the excitement and he pukes. Please don’t fret, this is normal and doesn’t need the doctor, just to be cleaned up! (apologies ahead of time if this should happen!)

His hard work with the agency needs him focused and ready no matter what nor when. Because of this, he has a special medication he takes at night. If stuck in a pill pocket or treat, he should eat it right down! After ensuring he’s eaten the pill, please give him 5ish treats that are provided. He’ll be extremely thankful!

Throughout his endeavors, he may need to send me some intel. This can easily be done by sending me pictures of him throughout his stay. There is no such thing as too many pictures!! While it may seem like he’s just sleeping, or hiding from the camera (which he will do) and you aren’t sure if you should take and send a picture, do it! You may not see anything, but I bet I’ll find the hidden message. He’s the special agent, but sometimes I give a consult.

Thank you for taking care of my boy while I’m gone, I greatly appreciate it! He may not be cuddly nor want touched, but he’ll love to play and eat and be out for a bit each day! If he acts up, I’m sure his mission is just getting a little out of hand, don’t take it personally!

Thanks again,

Lydia

 

This week I decided to write out the instructions I’m leaving for my cat while he stays in boarding over the weekend. I’ll be going up to Iowa, and I want him to be able to get a break from his brothers! I know it’s not quite a story, but I wanted to leave the instructions in a fun way and thought this might do the trick!

Please check out S.R. Anand (With whom I’m doing these posts with!)’s blog, Yonder Worlds!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Happy Halloween/All Hallows Eve!

It’s been a long while, friends! How are all of you doing? Enjoying the weather? It’s 80° here today! I remember when there was snow on the ground when I went trick-or-treating as a kid.

I’m going to ramble for awhile; hope you don’t mind. I now am on 200mg of Lamictal, and 50mg of Zoloft, and let me tell you: IT IS AMAZING. I think (knock on wood) this is the magic amount and type of drugs for me! I was telling Lucas the other day it’s probably how ‘normal’ people feel all the time, but for me I feel like I’m on drugs because I’m so happy and actually myself! It’s wonderful. (Granted yes, I am on drugs, but I mean like non-prescription drugs. You get it.)

I’m still at the vet clinic; it’s just me and The Groomer now, so I’ve been doing prep work, all the bathing, and then helping to finish whatever dogs are left. So a few less dogs that I’m finishing, but I’m still really enjoying it, learning new things, and getting more hours which is great!

Lucas and I are doing very well as are all the animals! Lunar Tides is going great and we’ve had a few live shows in our area!! That’s been a lot of fun; we have another on the 19th of November. In two months it’ll be a year that I’ve been sober. I’m pretty proud of myself for that. I’m sure a million other things have happened since I’ve been gone, and I know tons has been going on in your lives too! I’d love to hear all about it. I can’t promise I’m back for sure now, but I felt like doing a bit of blogging today and we’ll see where it leads us.

 

Have a fantastic week you wonderful WordPress friends. ❤

 

 

 

 

 

Meet Calypso!

She was so tiny and skinny when she first showed up!

She was so tiny and skinny when she first showed up!

It’s been almost three months since Calypso showed up outside our door. This was very shortly after Little Kitty had passed away, so I was trying to not get too attached to her. Plus, she looked just like Little Kitty, so I was thinking she might have been related to him. I think that’s partly why it’s taken me so long to make a post about her! She’s still here though, and sweet as ever.

Sniffing out the interesting things!

We thought she was pregnant or else in heat when she first showed up, but since she has yet to have any kittens, we think maybe she’s already been spayed. She wasn’t afraid of us at all when first getting here, so I’m guessing she got dumped somewhere nearby and found her way to us. We’ve been feeding and giving her water ever since, and made a little bed on the roof (and the grill) for her to sleep in. She’s a great climber, which is good since the other neighbor cats will sometimes try to pick on her!

We tease Shikari that she’s his girlfriend, because he’ll sit at the window and meow to her all day long when she’s out there. Nelson hisses at her, of course. I wouldn’t expect any less out of him! Calypso loves getting attention, and I would brush her almost everyday. Now that she’s getting her winter coat I don’t brush her, because I’d hate to accidentally pull out some of that fur! We hope she sticks around, and if it gets really cold we might toss around the idea of letting her come inside. (More me wanting that to happen! hehe) Lucas loves her too; he’s always out there feeding her as soon as he’s up in the morning. She’s a sweetheart!
