I’m happy to be sitting here with Charlie with nothing I have to do today. I might make a short trip to Trader Joe’s. Haven’t been there in awhile.
I enjoy sitting here watching the sun as it moves across my house plants. I have always loved to photograph shadows and the way light plays on objects.
Ivy is laying on the table next to my chair where I put my laptop when I’m not using it.
Tomorrow morning I take her to the vet. It will be her first time away from here since I brought her home in October 2018. She’s eating better now, so that might have just been a temporary thing.
But why isn’t she getting into all the Christmas stuff I have out? This is so unlike Ivy.
She usually can’t stop herself when something new is brought into a room. She must bat it around and check it out. Her curiosity just gets the best of her.
But no. Ivy is leaving it all alone. This is so odd.
I love that she’s being so well behaved, but it worries me. I never want to discourage her curiosity. Because that’s part of her personality.
I’m still taking her to the vet, and oh how fun that’s going to be. Ivy does not like to be picked up. She will fight you and grab onto something and it’s nearly impossible to actually hold her.
I am already trying to figure out how on earth I will get her into that carrying crate. And then, once that’s accomplished, actually be able to carry this big cat and get her into the car and then into the vet clinic.
I don’t know what she weighs, but she’s not a skinny girl.
I’ll be interested in seeing how Dr. Poteet manages her. I hope he doesn’t end up with bloodied hands. He’s probably 76 now. I guess he’ll never retire.
I added the little stool with the boxes on it and the wooden tree to my Christmas tree vignette.
How on earth Ivy is keeping herself from checking out all that you see above? There’s so much there and normally she’d be all over it.
After I take Ivy to her appointment in the morning, I bring her home and then have lunch with my daughter/daughters. (I never know whether there will be 1 or 2).
So I won’t plan to post here until the afternoon. Will let you know how everything goes.
