We are a 2 cat family again

We are a 2 cat family again. I had 2 wonderful cats, Thelma and Louise, since getting them from my son in November 2007. Louise had to be euthanized last December, due to liver disease. So for about 8 months it has been just Thelma and me. But I have adopted the sweet little stray that has been living in my backyard since May. I have been providing food and water daily, trying to decide my next move, before the coming of cold weather. After driving my friends and family crazy dithering about this, I tried picking her up last Friday evening. SUCCESS! On Monday evening, after work, I brought her inside. On Thursday, my wonderful vet checked her out and gave her the necessary shots. She has adapted beautifully, some hissing and growling, to be sure, between Thelly and Sweetpea. That's the name I gave her, quite a while ago. Last night, both kitties slept on my bed with me, one at each end of the bed. I am so delighted to have this sweetie in the family!

Well - I had surgery on my left sinus last Thursday, 2/16/12. The recovery is agonizingly slow. It is the dreadful drainage that is most annoying. And because I'm such a chicken about medical issues, I resorted to calling my doctor's service twice over the weekend, for reassurance. Both doctors were most kind and understanding, responded to my questions and neither made me feel like an over reacting idiot, thank goodness. I am out of work for a minimum of a week, my post-op checkup is tomorrow afternoon. I find out then if I return to work on Thursday or Friday. I am a big wuss, I know. But I have to vent somewhere, where better than my blog and good old FB?

Well, finally! I could not figure out how to get new posts in to my blog after Google +. I am now the grandmother of one adored kitty, my Louise passed away in 12/11. So, now it's just Thelly and me. I am still a left-wing  liberal, old hippie chick, no changes there. I am relaxing at home on this cold January day, playing on the computer and listening to NPR on WAMC, my local public radio station. Nothing very exciting, just comfortable and content.
