It’s rather cool outside this Friday morning and the sun is shining. Yesterday I had an appointment with my doctor.
As I drove through town, I noticed that the leaves are turning. It’s one of my very favorite times of year. When the leaves turn and the colors are so vivid.
Finally they will let go of the branches and swirl to the ground.
I’ll have to take my camera and maybe go out to Woodward Park to take photos. I normally also do that in the spring, but due to Covid 19 I didn’t this past spring.
Doctor’s Visit Yesterday:
My doctor told me to double up on the Gabapentin. And finally, sometime during last night, I was pain free. So I went back to the smaller dose this morning.
In other news Ivy apparently had a wonderful time while I was gone. She tore up the paper in my printer.
Something is going on with Ivy. She won’t play fetch. And she doesn’t bring her swirly toy to me throughout the day like she did.
Something’s Up With Ivy:
I went so far as to get her swirly toy and throw it several times. She just stood and stared at me.
I tried to think what in Ivy’s life has changed in the past few days. Wondering if maybe that was it.
She Got A New Food Bowl Stand:
Well, I finally found a wood food bowl stand that is tall enough for her. I’d read that cats having to bend down to eat are prone to throw up.
I’ve bought several, but they were never tall enough. This one is probably at least a foot tall, so she doesn’t have to bend over.
And A New Litter Box:
And I also got her a new litter box. The biggest one I could find. I did this because I got tired of getting up in the middle of the night when she accidentally turned the other one over. Not on purpose. But trying to clear the high top jumping out.
It isn’t pleasant to get up during the night and turn on the light and clean up that kind of mess. So I got her one with a lid that she can go in at the front.
The other one had the hole to get in at the top. But as she got so big, I took it off. Fearing she would strangle herself getting in or out through that hole.
She doesn’t act sick or anything. Maybe she’s just going through a phase.
Do you think cats go through phases?
Charlie went to the groomer this week and wanted to show you how handsome he looks.
