Afer the unusal happenings of the other week – a good friend sent me this video.
My hand is almost totally healed. I still have 2 more days of antibiotics to go – I’m so glad I did go to the clinic, by the next afternoon I was really sick and it took about a day and a half for the antibiotics to kick in. Majeeks/Jeeksy is his old self, I’m just a little more cautious when petting him.
Kira went in for her teeth cleaning and during her appointment the Vet and I spoke about Jeeksy. Actually while examining Kira, the Vet said “Magic can get out of hand I hear.”
Riiiight. That Draco Malfoy is a problem.?? Sleep deprivation kept me from blurting out an inappropriate response and allowed my brain to clonk around looking for a reason behind this personal viewpoint statement and then I realized he meant Majeeks.
My Mom didn’t know how to spell his name so he is listed as Majiks on his file. It is a ridiculous name when written but it is him exactly, Cheeks Majeeks.
We proceeded to have a rational conversation about cats, like Magic, the signs to watch for, what to let visitors know, how to care for my hand. Eek – he told me that cat bites result in amputations for a lot of vets — if they bite a joint and it gets infected there isn’t anything else to do. I had no idea. Obviously their frequent contact with sick or injured cats jumps their stats up, but still.
Jeeksy is staying right where he is and I am just going to be much more aware of his body language — even if he is still purring. I really want to thank everyone for their input, ideas and well wishes. It was refreshing to hear from so many cat lovers – people I work with were mostly in the other camp.
Let me try and get some knitting news in here…
I’ve been working on adding some panels to Kira’s blankie. She likes to be super cozy, hiding her head under. I will post a WIPs update Wednesday.
ETA: Knitting news?? You’re all so nice. Yeah – that’s crochet. It’s pretty bad when I made it and still call it kniting. Oops.
