COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
It is the beginning of the end. Fiona and Mr. B. have invaded my bedroom. Fiona is the worst love bug since Purdy von Sweets. In addition to the Microwits, I have the Kitwit invasion. When I left for the doctor, my laptop was safely sitting on the big round microbead pillow. When I returned, my poor laptop was sprawled in the bed, half out of its case and Josephina was in the center of the round cushion. That was not the end of it. I was hurting so bad I finally took a quarter of my pain pill and went to bed. As I am lying there, trying to doze off, notice I am being beat to death by Fiona. A quick check showed either Fiona had grown significantly or I had another cat. Sure enough, Josephina was beside me so I thought, I’ll just kick the big round pillow to the foot of the bed. It was surprisingly heavy so I turned the salt lamp on and there, right in the middle of it, curled up, was one Fiona like she owned the thing. Now, Josephina thinks she owns it and thus the pillow wars began…..at the moment, Fiona has custody but Josephina is sneaking up from the foot of the bed.
Last night I decided on a little cottage cheese. I couldn’t find the black pepper so I decided on just a touch of the six pepper fusion I bought at Costco. That went really well until the last two bites when I discovered one of those peppers must be cayenne. I dropped the bowl and grabbed the water bottle. Immediately Napoleon took that as his cue to finish my bowl. I mean, I did leave it unattended. He grabbed a mouth full, reared back on his hind legs and slapped that bowl silly. I think he found the cayenne pepper. That was the first time his food ever bit him back. Then he looked up at me for permission to kill it. I wisely took the bowl to the kitchen while it was in one piece. Right now, Purrbie is on my right waiting to help write the forecast and get the occasional stroke as I work.
Ah yes, the doctor’s appointment, he removed more scab. I won’t know how much until I remove the bandage but it hurt. It has settled down a bit now. We will discuss the second operation in three weeks after I go over the finances with the insurance company and discover how much more I have to spend, how much in flexible spending which is our money anyway, and how much I can finagle out of a budget that is stretched to the limit. Remember when you had insurance and something like cancer came up and you just went to the hospital and had it taken care up? Now you call the insurance company, the accounting department, get estimates from doctors and lastly, find a good attorney in case you need to declare bankruptcy. All of this while I watch the family jewels expanding on Mr B and Boogaboo and know I can’t get the cheap neutering because George makes too much money. By the time I got all their shots, which I do not agree with giving to cats that stay indoors their whole lives, to get them into the cheap clinic, it would equal the cost of getting them done at my regular vet less the neuter/spay charge at the cheap clinic. I went through that once before and wound up paying a hundred dollars or more than my own vet would have charged me! And anyway, I have trouble trusting my precious little bundles of fur to someone I don’t know. I know my vet will treat them like royalty and they are royalty.
