Kittycat update: Over the weekend he started to brighten up a bit, and get used to his head collar, which was good :-) Unfortunately, he got so used to the collar, that he managed to twist himself so that he could reach the wound and tubes. So by yesterday morning, he was feeling all yucky again because he’d irritated it, so it was back to the vet for a check up, an antibiotic jab, and some cream stuff to put on his tummy around the tubes. He was off his food most of yesterday, but by late evening he’d perked right up again, and went back to stuffing his face. Hehehe. Hopefully the tubes will be coming out tomorrow, now, but we shall see.
The owner of the dog came round on Saturday evening, and he’s going to pay half the vet bills for Xandermog (the dog did also have some scratches, as did the owner from when he’d tried to catch Xander… his hand was actually a bit swollen, so he was going to the Dr to get checked out). Which will help. I just hope Xander stops worrying the tubes / stitches – don’t want him to have another set-back, daft cat!
I’m somewhat spacey myself at the moment, cos what with one thing and another, I forgot to get a new prescription for my meds. Nice one. But I shall just have to deal with that for a few days, I guess. Going to the Dr on Thursday, so with a bit of luck I’ll be back to myself by the weekend – I certainly hope so, cos Alan’s coming up to visit over the bank holiday now. Hoorah! :-)
And finally, it’s time for This or That Tuesday once again. This time the theme’s childhood toys / games:
1. CandyLand or Chutes and Ladders?
No clue what CandyLand is. And hey, it’s Snakes and Ladders! *g* Which was always a big fave with me :-)
2. Barbie or GI Joe?
*sigh* Gotta admit. Barbie. I had …. seven, I think. Plus a couple of Kens, Skipper, the horses, and various accessories. Funny thing is, I really wasn’t into dolls in general. Have no idea where the Barbie obsession came from.
3. Play-Doh or Silly Putty?
Play-Doh becauseittastednice. How I didn’t poison myself, I’ll never know. My brother had Silly Putty, though, and that was good fun too.
4. Lincoln Logs or Tinkertoys?
Neither. Again, never heard of the first, and the second – eh, was never interested.
5. The Game of Life or Monopoly?
Game of Life! Though I really do like Monopoly too. My fave ever board game, though, is Go For Broke. Heee! (And I’m so good at it too… hmm, maybe I should have thought more about the deeper meaning of that one before I went out into the big wide world….. *g*)
6. Etch-a-Sketch or Lite-Brite?
Etch-a-Sketch rules! Though once again, I dunno what the second one is.
7. The Slinky: metal or plastic?
Definitely metal – infinitely cooler, and anyway, it’s the real thing!
8. Easy-Bake Oven or Sno-Cone Machine?
Never had either, but if the Sno-Cone thingy was an ice-cream maker, then I always wanted one of those! Oh, Mr Frosty, that was probably the nearest equiv – I always wanted a Mr Frosty.
9. Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars?
Hot Wheels… not that I was really into cars, but that just always sounded so much cooler.
10. Spirograph or Paint-by-Numbers?
Spirograph, by a million miles. I think mine gradually got broken, but it made such funky zoomy patterns.
