The State of the Intertext Household

Robinson is much brighter today, has eaten with good appetite, passed two good solid stools (sorry, TMI for non beardie people) and seems a fair bit happier, though he still is reluctant to walk too closely past Zoe. Someone threw up in the night, but I think it was Zoe (I heard it happening, and the tone of the coughing was hers rather than Robs'). She had been eating grass in the park, so I'm not totally surprised. I slept from 9:30 through to about 8:00am (except for being woken once by the sound of a dog vomitting) and feel a lot better. Today is my day at the "good" campus, where I'm teaching Literature today, so it's all good, as they say.

Tabitha passes through all of this with a blithe insouciance typical of cats (just for interest - google "spell insouciance" and see what turns up; I'm intrigued).

It's such good news that Robinson is feeling better. Have a happy day.

Wow, when I was twelve my friends and I played some silly slumber party games, but a mermaid spell is a new one for me.

I didn't have Zoe's eyes checked by a veterinary optometrist. Do you think she's having trouble seeing him coming? Or do you think she just nails him when he startles her due to waking or not hearing? Lady used to do both and the boys learned to give her a wide berth.

Is what R got metronidazole? If so, please watch him closely for neurological side effects. Also were his bloods normal (for him)?

Still worrying....a little :-)

My take on Zoe's crankiness is that she's got very sore joints, and gets grumpy when disturbed or asked to get up suddenly. I'm not absolutely sure what to do about that, because I don't have a lot of faith in supplements (from my own experience) and the fact that most anti-inflammatories are pretty lethal on the stomach, though effective. I also think her eyesight is not fantastic, nor is her hearing, so that all contributes to the situation.

R's bloods were normal, except for a slight elevation in the liver function, which originally my own vet said was not enough to worry about. And yes, it's metronidazole. I'll keep a close eye on him, but he seems fine at the moment.

They've both been good today, except Z seems quite subdued. R had a good supper and was very bright on his walk.

I'm worrying a little, too ... I love them both!
