I opted for the butt skritch and you were rewarded with a particularly enthusiastic butt wriggle in response. It turned into four skritches as each time I stopped she spun around and positioned herself for another round. You must be pretty good at this. Stay warm!
I haven't gotten instructions on a specific rehab for her. She may be a little uncomfortable but I don't expect it to slow her down much. A lot will depend on how far down the growth went. He's hoping he'll be able to just "take a divot" and get all of it and then stretch some skin over that area. We'll have to pay attention to the stitches and make sure she doesn't mess with them. I see a cone in hr future but hopefully it won't be for that long. I look forward to giving her a hug for you. You'll be right there in line behind the fifty or so of my own that I want to give her. Actually, it will be far less than that. Hugs tend to annoy her and she much prefers a good butt scritch. I'll see how she responds to each and olet her know a real good one was from you. Dang! Forty below is way significant. Stay safe and stay warm. It's a very good time to have a seventeen pound heater to snuggle with.
Aw, poor Becky! I, myself, HATE the vet, er, doctor! Just said a little prayer for her and for you. We are homebound for at least 3 more days. There is a Wind Chill Warning posted for all of this area of the Divide. Chill factor may get as low as -40 by tomorrow night. Yikes. I haven't seen that in a decade. I am very glad my apartment is air tight. I am on the 4th floor and with all the heat rising from below, I only have my heat set at 66 and still stay almost too toasty. Oh. Wait. Maybe that's the 17 pound cat in my lap. Give Becky a hug from mamawalker. Will she have to have a special diet or will she be able to chew?
My frosticles shivered a bit just reading your note. Our news was very impressed with the +30 we had here at dawn. That's okay...it's not a competition I'm anxious to win. I'm sitting around this afternoon waiting to hear from the vet. I dropped Becky off this morning for surgery to remove a growth from her lip. It's very slow growing and we've been monitoring it for well over a year. It's about the size of an apricot pit. He doesn't expect it to be cancerous as none of the cells they've ever extracted an looked at under a microscope show signs. We'll biopsy it just to be certain. I should be able to bring her home in a couple hours. It's odd kicking around the house without her here. I hope you're getting some gorgeous views to go along with that cold weather. I'll drink a hot chocolate in your honor a bit later.
Thanks for the heads up on the Becky FP. I'd missed that one. I always enjoy it when folks use her pics for LOLs. And thanks for sending along the Leslie clip. He really had great timing. Airplane remains one of my absolute favorites...talk about quotable!
I was thinking about smoke before the leafy references showed up in the art. The artist wasn't terribly subtle when she decided to send a message. That's okay...between the music and the art it was meant to deliver that kind of experience. Maybe if you brought enough brownies for everyone you could all have enjoyed a lights out experience there in the computer room.
I'm glad you enjoyed it. Yeah, the gal put a lot of 'references' into her art. Wish I could have put out the lights to watch it here but, alas, it's a public computer room and I'm not sure I could have talked the other 'seniors' into it!! ;P
I'd never listened to that album clear through before. Tuesday Afternoon and Nights in White Satin were of course well known to me. I got Time Traveler, the 4disc set, when it first came out and have long enjoyed the Moody Blues. So much of that album felt like a musical with overtures alluding to melodies to come later. There was some very interesting art work in there. At the outset they had me thinking way back in the day and could picture myself with certain leafy substances settling in to enjoy the effects and the music. I started it earlier this evening but waited to finish it when I could have the whole house blacked out and really immerse myself in it. Thanks for sending it along.
This album blew me away the first time I heard it in 68. And I just found this particular video. It is outstanding in full screen but requires full attention. So...if you have 42 uninterrupted minutes, it would be a great Sunday treat!! Remember full screen!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2y_9hwW1eV0
LOL! I have been known to frighten a few of my neighbors in the morning! It's good to hear that all is well. The kittehs and I are looking forward to cuddling for the winter. We've had a couple of mornings in the teens already. Stay well, my friend!
I know I'd prefer my snow in the mountains where I can look at it rather than around my feet where I have to slosh through it but I know you love your snow. I'm jealous of your morning coffee routine (though scarves and bathrobes aren't a good look for me). I do one cup of maintenance caffeine while hunched over my computer screen each day. Dad is good, as are we all. It's been a quiet year and I'm VERY grateful for that.
Way FUN!! You're welcome! We've had high 40s and low 50s and sunshine all weekend. It's 60 right now...a totally gorgeous Fall day! I hate it! Just kidding. My personal scenery, the Sapphires, have lots of snow and my morning coffee on the balcony requires a scarf with my bathrobe but the view is still very pretty!! How are you guys doing? How's your Dad?
