It's been a few days. A lot has been going on really... busy weekend of pets, plus the Superbowl. First let me say that aside from Madonna's magical performance, I would have rather watched the puppy bowl. I know it was back and forth the whole time, and so close, blah blah blah... I just can't get THAT excited about football. Before we headed to our "super bowl get-together", I had to give insulin to a new clients diabetic cat. I met there cats before Christmas, so my memory was a little fuzzy almost 2 months later. Luckily their wonderful owners left very detailed instructions (sometimes you really need that!!). So there are 2 female cats, both all black, but only 1 is diabetic. Considering I only met them once, I of course was nervous about telling them apart. I remembered that one had some white, and the other didn't. What I didn't know is that their eyes were different colors as well. Here I am in their basement kitchen feeding them and picking up the head of the one that is eating to check for gold eyes! Poor thing, I had to check 3 times and interrupt dinner just to make sure I was giving insulin to the right cat! Luckily all went well.... but I have to say that before you are used to a certain routine with new animals, it can be quite nerve wracking.
As for the rest of this week, it has been pretty uneventful. The full moon is tonight, I am feeling it, the dogs are feeling it, everything is just a bit "off." Trying to lay low until it passes.
