Doggy Carts, Good Emails and Kitty Mommies
Well, I'm dead tired but thought I'd write an entry anyways.
I had a stressful night thinking about finances and doggies and work and lawyers. Every few hours I'd wake up thinking of something else. Like the fact that the Baby book I am working on now is actually a job I got through my former agent in NYC, and as such, will be billed through them, and they will get 25% even though I haven't had anything to do with them for three years.
I have been checking out doggy meds... someone suggested Devil's Claw for arthritis. I googled it and found another dietary supplement called Cetyl Myristoleate. If anyone has ANY information at all about this let me know. It sounds like another amazing thing such as glucosamine...which did absolute wonders for my doggy's arthritis for the past 5 yrs and now is just not enough.
I shelled out today for flamenco, flea prevention for the cats and dog, and ordered that Metacam. Amazing how one can spend nearly $300 before even buying anything necessary like a bottle of milk. BTW Ultra'cream keeps really well. The carton says "best before Jan 6" and it is really quite a while after that, mainly 4 months after that, and it is fresh as the day it was born.. mmm. I just wish I liked 10% cream in my tea more than I do. Give me 2% milk please. But 5 month old cream is better than spending huh!
In researching for doggy, I found this really incredible trailer called the Equinox Tourlite. They make bicycle trailers for kids, convertible into strollers, both push and jogging, and even sleds. Here is a pic of a doggy in a bike trailer! But my doggy is bigger. They have a garden cart model which I think is just the right thing for my doggy... you get it as a kit for only $139 US and then build a plywood box. I can do that. I am not sure if it comes with wheels or not... on these frames you can put bike wheels of nearly any size. I would get a stroller type garden cart handle and the bike hitch which is only $17-30 depending on the type of bike you have. So I could take her even to parks farther away, and get my exercise. That is so exciting. And the cart would be good for use in the garden or hauling any sort of shit with my bike. Very very cool and exactly what I was hoping for in my ideal world! It is so great when someone has designed what you want in your wishes!!
The other thing in today's very long and eventful missive is that the guy upstairs has been taking care of a feral cat who has popped out a bunch of kittens into a cat carrier he put out on the back balcony. I have to call around a bit. I think we might be able to close the door on the carrier (she just hisses, with all the babies stuck on her) and take her to a vet where they could maybe give her some shots, and maybe even get her spayed. I dunno. I must consult. And I want to start handling the babies asap so we can tame them and they can be given away. If not they will just completely exponentially swell the feral cat population in my back yard. Six more cats to reproduce freely? Did I mention I spent all Sunday afternoon on my hands and knees picking cat shit out of the backyard? huh? hehe.
Other than that, the weather is cold again (down to 4° C tonight I think)... and the flamenco class went well. No one shouted or fought. The teacher praised us, everyone smiled. It was a good thing.
Well, I am off to find the links to put in this, then off to bed. I am slowly getting up early and earlier ... I was actually up by 12:30 today, instead of 1:30... and earlier this year it was 3:30 pm often eeek!...
hugs to me,
(ps I DID have a cold... it has turned into a sneezing dripping thing with a dry bronchial cough. Yay. But at least I don't feel like shit like last week!)
Here is my horoscope for Tuesday, May 4:Haha. Recent games. As for invitations, I didn't get any, but tonight Peaches was playingn again in town. I loved her last time and would totally have gone again, but our flamenco teacher threatened we cannot miss even a single Tuesday rehearsal for our upcoming show. Drat and sigh! Oh well.
