Yes, I did.
Did you catch that reference in my last post?
I never intended to take cat ownership to this level, but don't judge until you've scrolled through all the adorable pictures.
Meet TJ. He came to us as a foster while he was recovering from surgery.
He had a procedure called femoral head ostectomy, or FHO. You may have heard of it, as it is a fairly common treatment in dogs and is used to treat a congenital condition called hip dysplasia. In TJ’s case, his injury was caused by an unknown trauma.
His surgery was successful and we brought him home for a few weeks to recuperate. I had to perform physical therapy on him several times a day, gently extending and contracting his back leg. Though he clearly didn’t enjoy the therapy, he tolerated it amazingly well. He is a gentle, sweet, inquisitive cat and it didn’t take long for him to work his way into our hearts.
I mean, seriously, look at him. How could anyone say no?
Caring for four cats at once can be challenging. However, I worked hard to get them on the same napping schedule, which helped immensely.
You may have noticed that I’ve been posting on average about once a month. This has nothing to do with writer's block and everything to do with a lack of time. However, we were hit with a big winter storm yesterday that dumped 12 inches of snow on us, giving us two snow days in a row.
I have used my found time to write three posts – two for Wanderlust and one for a parenting website. That’s one post every 4 inches. I understand another storm system is headed our way. I am forecasting increased posting through the end of winter.
Also cancelled due to snow was my ex-husband's sentencing, which was scheduled for yesterday morning. It was originally set for August of last year, then continued to October, then November, then January, then February, and now to an as-yet-unknown date. I'm wondering if it's possible for it to be continued indefinitely. That way, if he gets sentenced to five years in a hearing ten years from now, he could just take the additional time served as credit against future incarceration.
Works for me.
