SumCat was here!!
Posted by Lissa on January 24, 2011
I’m sitting peacefully at my sewing/study table pegging away at my Nutrition textbook. (Side note: I’ve got to do a post about the weirder, more interesting tidbits I’ve encountered in my return to schooling.) Sure, I’m a little tired since I woke up at 3:45 AM, but I’ve had a granola bar and a cup of coffee, I’m two-thirds done, and I have a cat cozily perched next to me for company. My iPhone is playing Indian Classical Music*, the birds are singing, and I can now describe the difference between a gastroduodenostomy and a gastrojejunostomy. All is well.
And then my concentration is broken as a drop of water falls onto my syllabus.
Wha? I thought muzzily. Did I drool?
A musical chime of liquid whispers to my left.
SumCat strikes again!!
P.S. I thought I actually caught his paw dipping down, but my iPhone camera deceived me — boo!
P.P.S. Mike laughs at me, but it actually makes a lot of sense to keep my water in that door pocket — it’s within easy reach, but if I accidentally knock it over it won’t impact the sewing machine (water + electronics = bad!!) nor the expensive textbooks.)
P.P.P.S. Rajah is feeling much better, thank you everyone! He had his last Clavamox dose yesterday morning, and none too soon — it was starting to irritate his stomach and his resistance had changed from mild distaste to strong claw-stabby stiff-legged get-that-shite-away-from-me aversion. His appetite had dropped just enough that, combined with occasional vomiting, I was getting seriously worried; however, everything’s back to normal now. Including the lack of compulsive licking and discontinued impotent-frequent litter box trips. Yay hooray!!
*I took a Music of Asia class my freshman year in college — China, India, Japan and Korea. I’ve found that classical Indian music makes great study/writing background noise.
