Feeling a little lost

Picking up where I left off one month ago is proving to be harder than I imagined.

Do you think I can remember where I put the picky-clippers (for cat toenails) before I left for PA?

When I got home and crawled into bed, Esau and Chloe decided to perform a cat scan confirming I was me. The cat scan lasted all night long in spite of my skill at sending cats into orbit with my eyes closed.

I looked like I was attacked by a phlebotomist on speed - poke holes on all exposed skin.

Why don't I close the door, you wonder?

Imagine howling bowling balls battering your hollow-core door. Yeah.

Aside from furry felines, figuring out where I'm supposed to be when, and with who is testing what little sanity I have. Oh, and remembering who's going out with whom in the marching band? Forgedaboutit.

Pennsylvania and Colorado may as well be on different planets. My mind?

In a whole other galaxy.

Give yourself some time to acclimate to your "old" life again. It will come. And you'll eventually find your kitty clippers.

A prisoner of hope,

I say join me at Walt Disney World. It's a lot more fun, and you don't care that you're not on the same planet. :) Come on over, I'm there already! (mentally, anyway)

My first thought: You clip your cat's TOENAIL'S??????

Yikes. We tried that with our cats early on and quickly abandoned it. Of course, we also didn't think it was a good idea to take away their defenses against our doggies.

We DO trim our dogs' toenails!

Sorry. You were probably hoping for something serious...:)

CJ - I do indeed clip their little toenails about once a week. Esau and Chloe are not declawed. Those pickies can get razor sharp to the point they can filet me in my sleep, and dice a couch. Clipping takes them from slice and dice to mere scratch. Kinda dulls the ends.

The Blob is declawed (her previous owner did that to her)and I only do her back toenails as needed which isn't too often b/c back claws get worn down quicker.

And I am going for the humor element :)
