The Cat Is Handling My Return to School Well
Just in case you were wondering.
I've gotten home around 4:30 or 5 the past two days, and she's been conked out in her kitty cup back in the bedroom. It's hardly an insult that she's not at the door to greet me (a.k.a. make a break for it into the hallway), and in fact it's kind of fun not waking her. When I came home yesterday and found her sleeping, I backed out of the bedroom quietly and sat in the armchair as I watched a little TV and opened the mail.
Within a couple of minutes, I heard a "MEOW!" and there she was in the doorway of the bedroom. I think she was a bit groggy and couldn't see me around the corner in the armchair, so she had to do a "Where are you?" yell.
She has been sleeping a lot, and that partly could be due to her thyroid. When we went to the vet two weeks ago, they tested her and found that her thyroid was acting up again. Not really a surprise, because she'd been refusing to take her meds, and even when I was trying to grind them up and hide them in her food, she wasn't really eating her food so that didn't help.
9 pounds--one pound down from June. Which is, again, the whole hyperthyroid/picky eater thing.
So I renewed my efforts, and tried the Pill Pockets again (good thing there were some left in the bag and they're fairly fresh still). Her compliance is about 90% with them, although I do find that while she almost always eats the Pill Pocket I give her before breakfast, she's not interested in the ones before dinner. I don't get it. They're from the same bag! She really can be weird sometimes.
But why shouldn't she be weird? She is kind of funny-looking.
