Oh man. IT IS SO HOT. And I am tired. My legs feel like jelly.
I spent the day actually doing stuff instead of playing Diablo 3 and rolling around in bed pouting and watching Netflix. I vacuumed (it was desperately needed, omg, I am actually embarrassed at how gross my floor was) and then put together a cat condo.
SPEAKING OF THE CAT CONDO. I actually got it with one cat in mind. Her name is Ginny Lou and I had to send her to live with my sister. 🙁 I’ll make a long story short and say that one of my other cats, bitchface Lex, was beating up on Louie and making her miserable. I’m almost positive Lex wasn’t letting her near the food dish so Lou wasn’t eating much and she was just hiding under my bed all the time. I didn’t know what to do, so after watching My Cat From Hell and reading some advice on the internet, I figured I’d get another cat condo and put it in my room so the cats have a little more vertical space and Louie had another way of getting away from my stupid bully cat. But then the same day I ordered it my sister came and took Louie back to her house. Okay, when I put it that way it sounds like a kidnapping, but I actually suggested it. Louie is one of my favourite cats and it was super hard suggesting my sister come get her, but I knew it was for the best. The first few days were rough, I was all crazy and stressed out because Louie was all stressed out and not eating, but now that it’s been a few days she’s a lot better. She’s been snuggling with my sister and eating baby food and whatever other treats my sister has been tempting her with.
So, back to the cat condo. I figured I’d just keep it anyway and give the six existing cats a little more vertical space. It took me forever to put it together (along with 5 or 6 trips up and down the stairs carrying parts, also I tripped and bruised my kneecap once) and I seem to be missing a bolt so it’s not completely together yet. I’m hoping once I get the right bolt I can put it together and it will be a little more sturdy, because right now it’s a little wobbly and making me nervous. If that doesn’t work and it’s still not sturdy, I guess I could take it apart and make a smaller condo. I GUESS. Ugh. I bought a condo off eBay a few years ago and it’s awesome, I’ve had it for like four years and it’s super sturdy still. The rope part is falling off but that’s to be expected with cats scratching at it. This one is definitely lower quality. But shipping it back will be kind of a pain because it’s like 60 pounds and lord knows that would cost a lot to ship. Guess we’ll see?
So. I miss my cat. I was super crazy and crying a lot for the last few days because I was worried about her, but I’m glad she’s finally eating. And snuggling with my sister. AND she got affectionate with one of my sister’s other cats! She has two others besides mine, but hers don’t seem to be all alpha cat/HBIC like my Lex tends to be. Also I’ve demoted Lex as my favourite cat. She’s mean.
Today I had three pieces of pizza and one cupcake. There’s a cupcake bakery near me that sells $3 cupcakes which is crazy but they are amazingly good and it’s like my mouth is having an orgasm every time I eat one. Plus I got my favourite ring back a few days ago. My bestie got it for me ages ago but it broke where it had been resized and and I just now got around to taking it to be repaired. It’s pretty.
Point is: things are looking up. I was having a bad couple of days there but things are improving slightly. Now I just need a condo and a promotion and I’ll be set!
Here’s a pic of Louie. She looks all sad but she was high on catnip, I promise.
