Let’s try for normal!

(no pics in this one, but I’m going to do a post or two with pics from Friday and Saturday later today, once I choose which and get them resized and uploaded – around feeding a Cory-Bear! got lots, especially Friday, so probably 2 posts) Thursday was just hopeless – had to leave the kids and run to the hospital, Jackie was sent there from the dentist after they nicked the edge of her tongue near the back and it would not stop bleeding. Woke up Maria from downstairs, she has a key, and she came and made sure the…

Low-energy day

I’ll do my best to get pics tomorrow, or video, or better still both… sorry. I spent today exhausted. Due to high anxiety yesterday, I had trouble sleeping, in part because of muscle tension bad enough to cause spasms in my neck and shoulders. I didn’t bother trying to push wet food much on Cory today. Super-quick summary: 3 meals of 1.5 tbs of kibble with a very few treats (mostly grain-free), all eaten eagerly 1 bedtime meal of 1 tbs with a few treats, and 3 snacks of 1 tbs each, eaten so enthusiastically that the original plan of…

Back to Basics?

Sorry, no pics, busy and tiring and frustrating day. I was out for a while today – what should have been a quick trip became a major trek involving hopping a bus I’m not familiar with in order to get to the other branch of my fave pet store to get something the local one was out of. Was home by noon, though. Cory was okay, mostly just slept, apparently went on the balcony briefly. Breakfast crunchies: woke me a little early – I tried him with a single kibble of a new flavour, and he got super-excitable until I…

Oh no, I went out!

(only 1 pic) (Fixed the vids in the last post, and subscriptions on the blog!!!) (Sorry, I was out through his most photogenic time of day – had a psych appointment and needed to get some kitty noms.)

Video x3!

Videos of: Cory drinking water with a feeding syringe, Cory and my hairbrush, and a new version of Cory getting his kibble. All are from June 9. Leaving these uploading overnight worked, even though our Internet connection keeps cutting out during the day.

Possessive Bear is possessive!

** Lots of pics! (6) ** All right, no one’s going to want as much mundane detail as I included yesterday, so let’s summarise key info and concentrate on significant or interesting stuff plus pics and vids. (Vids later, they take forever to upload so will do overnight.) Like so, just the key stuff: Breakfast crunchies: enthusiastic – led me to the living room (7:45) Breakfast gushifuds: ate a reasonable amount on his own (after water) Lunch crunchies: enthusiastic, to say the least (we got video) Lunch gushifuds: woke hungry from a dream but didn’t want tuna bisque, preferred leftover…

Just a day!

So, let’s try this: I’ll open a new post on my laptop every morning, and Jackie and I can add to it through the day, and post it at bedtime. Sorry if there’s way more detail than anyone else really needs. I think this is going to end up being a way of tracking trends to tell the vet, as well as a way to share, and also to help me concentrate on the good bits. He was in a silly mood yesterday – he even tried to crawl inside an empty heavy-duty paper bag that had 10 lbs of…

Cory didn’t get the memo

Sick? What? He’s been having a really good day. Jackie was up ahead of me, as she often is, and opened the balcony door for the cats to go out. Instead of waiting for me and getting carried out to Jackie for his kibble routine, Cory was already outside when I got up and went to the kitchen. He was wildly energetic and enthusiastic about his breakfast, and afterwards, he was still hyper. He wanted up in my closet, on the shelf, where the old oversized cat carrier is… he climbed on top of the carrier, too. Then he wanted down,…

Coming back

Wow, it has been a really long time since I used this blog. Between Cheezland and, intermittently, Facebook, it’s been easier to just share kitty news elsewhere. But since Cory-Bear just had a not-yet-confirmed diagnosis of cancer, which means that there’s an invisible clock ticking and we have no idea how long it will take for it to run down… I imagine there are going to be lots of updates. And honestly, posting everything in two different places is going to at best be annoying, and if things get hectic, might not be possible. This way, anyone interested in following…
