rumble grumble, rumble grumble.

My kitty was kind enough to wake me up at 6:30 a.m. this morning by puking all over the living room floor. Once I got up and cleaned it up, it was useless trying to go back to bed. Grumble, grumble, grumble, rumble, grumble.

So, what to do with all of this extra time? Why, update my links, of course. I've been meaning to alphabetize them for eons now, so now it's done. :)

I may have a chance to finish washing the dishes I left last night, too. Thanks, Oliver.

Here is the link to my feedback from comments left yesterday...take a look when you have a chance.

Oh Oliver! I know what it's like to wake up to that heaving and puking. In my case, the sun rises around 5:30am and Killian is ready to go, meowing, listening to the birds chirping, and of course, he wants breakfast! I almost always fall back into bed, unless it is 6:30 or so, that's an ok time for me!

I've been meaning to update my links too. Can Oliver send over a non-pukey wakeup call?

Awwww... poor Oliver. :( I can never fall back to sleep after having to get up like that, either. Way to go for making good use of your time. :)

Updating links is always a good thing! We finally got some up this weekend on our site. I will be adding more when I get the time, but for now we at least have something there.

Thanks for sending the test recipe Catherine. Crystal and I are excited to try another Lennies recipe. It looks tasty.

My cat is 18 years old, but has the lungs of a newborn. She will cry all night long, just cause she's bored. We end up having to lock her in another sounds cruel, but it's the only way to sleep.

Oh, she leaves us nice puke presents too. My favourite is when I step in them first thing in the morning.

Megan, is there anything *special* you do to care for your kitty who is 18 years old? I want my guy to live forever and I know he can't. My grandparents had a cat for 22 years but they hardly took him to a doctor or anything.

Hi Leslie. Until about 3 years ago, we always fed her the expensive kinds of cat food they sell at the vet's. But, she was getting picky about her food, and I figure she was old enough to eat whatever she now she gets the cheep Whiskas 'meaty filled' kind of catfood, which I call junk cat food. But she loves the stuff. (I never tried to make her vegan). For the last year she's also been getting 1/2 a small can of wet cat food a day, cause she started loosing weight. This really helped her to put it back on.

What else can I tell you??? Lots of love...she is a really lovey-dovey cat, always wants to be on your lap. When she was young and we lived in a small town, she came and went from the house as she pleased. But, now that we live in a big city, she's an indoor cat. At first she hated that, but now she's far too nervous even to wander out in the hallway of our condo.

Also, she hasn't been to a vet in about 8 years. I know that must sounds terrible, but I figure I'm not going to rock the boat. As soon as she shows signs of an illness, I'll take her. I'm also not going to go to extreme lengths to save her or prolong her life. I did that once with a cat and it was horrible (more for the cat, but also for me).

That's a lot about my cat! Hope it's interesting and helpful! It'll be a sad sad day when she goes (I've had her since I was 12, and I'm now 30!), but I know she's had an amazing life.
