This week has been difficult adjusting to Daisy no longer being with us. I'm so used to seeing her around every corner and sitting with me wherever I am. I found a large stack of pictures that I forgot about - almost all of the cats, of course! - and there are some beautiful ones of Daisy. Belle is doing very well! She's living with a foster family now, with a woman who is a vet tech and knows how to care for her tail. She's on antibiotics and her tail is wrapped in a treatment and covered in a bandage. She's settling down, getting used to her new environment and is receiving lots of TLC.
Bob continues to come by daily for food and a comfy place to sleep. Yesterday there was a large shopping bag on the floor commandeered by Betsy after Scott came home with it after shopping. My cats adore big plastic bags to play and sleep in. Last night Bob saw the bag, made a bee-line for it and slept in it all night. He was very happy in the bag, his large head peeking out! Sadie continues to meow loudly and hiss at Bob every time he walks close to her, she has no fear! But Bob doesn't even notice Sadie, he continues walking past her as if she wasn't there - he is 3x the size of Sadie!
Most of the cats have a cold, it seems to be going around. Lots of feline sneezing and coughing around here. We might have to take a couple to the vet, such as Betsy and Dopey, if their colds linger another week. Hopefully they'll feel better in a couple of days.
I finished After by Amy Efaw and will be posting my review this week as well as my review of Still Life by Louise Penny. I'm really enjoying This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper and will finish it today or tomorrow. I'm going to read Cherries in Winter by Susan Colon this week and probably Stand the Storm by Breena Clarke.
I signed up for the Awesome Authors Challenge 2010 in At Home with Books and I'm thinking about signing up for the Books to Read Before I Die Challenge at Bibliophile by the Sea. I have to come up with a good list!
