waiting …

Aliss (in icon) hasn’t been well – I haven’t posted here, but I did put it on the catblog.

I took her back to Vim the Vet on Wednesday of last week. She hadn’t put any weight on, and he was a bit concerned, so he gave her an anabolic steroid shot to kick start her and said he’d see her in a month.

She’s been eating like a horse, but got thinner and thinner. perlmonger and I resolved that we would give her food she liked, keep her warm and comfortable, and give her lots of love and fuss. She didn’t get meatier, but she has been bright-eyed, and happy to see us, and sat on laps in the evening, apart from scoffing huge quantities of expensive little tins of fud.

Until lunchtime today, when she didn’t want her waffer thin chicken. Then didn’t want her Highlife Tuna or her Gourmet Selection prawn and tuna. She’s given up, I think – she’s lying oh her side by the sofa, and we’re just waiting for the end. If she makes it through the night, I’ll be amazed, and I’ll call the vet for a home visit in the morning if need be.

We are not putting her through what Bada went through in her last days. So we’re not going to see Jeremy Hardy tonight – we’re keeping vigil with our Aliss.

oh dear

we are configuring up yet another web server, for a client, which means still more SSH terminal windows.

and I have discovered the joy of different coloured ones, so I can hopefully remember which bloody server I’m using. I currently have black, orange, purple and pale pink.

pastel geek – very chic 🙂


orange changed to blue – it was just too icky (sort of tangeriney shade)
