Pear Blossom is feeling better! The antibiotic and lots of extra attention have helped her. She’s eating enough cat food to be healthy, and she is choosing to sleep in her bed on the counter. It makes my heart feel like lifting off to see her this way. Everyone is still missing Mac, but we’re all carrying on.
At the end of last week, daughter’s kitty stopped eating and had to go to the vet in NYC. They couldn’t find the cause of the problem. Medicine seems to making her tummy feel better. Please keep Isabella Rose in your thoughts and prayers, but it looks like she might be better, too. (What is this, an epidemic?!)
On the subject of cats, my mother sent me an article about CatCon LA. Have you heard of it? Remember when I posted about the Phoenix Comicon? I wrote about it in Bordering on Geek.
I’m pretty sure I would enjoy CatCon much more! Lil Bub was there, posing for photos with people. Here is how the event is described on their website:
CatConLA 2015 took place in June, 2015 celebrating groundbreaking products and ideas in art and design, pop culture, and attitude… for cat people.
Part expo, part symposium, CatConLA showcased some of the world’s top cat-centric merchandise including furniture, art, toys and clothing for those of us who possess a great love of the feline, as well as conversations with some of the top cat experts in the world.
Over 10,000 people visited CatConLA during the weekend. At the end of the event, we donated over $33,000 to FixNation and Lil BUB’s Big Fund at the ASPCA.
Have you ever seen Lil Bub with his owner Mike Bridavsky? This photo was on the CatConLA website–click through the photo to get to their website.
Even if you don’t have a cat, do you ever watch cat videos online? Here‘s an article about the results of a survey conducted by an Indiana University researcher on cat video watching. The bottom line is that watching cats on video makes people feel good!! Gee, I could have told them that.
There are apparently a lot of people writing about cats today. I found one new to me. This is where you can find him on Twitter. He writes humorously about his black cat Bear and on Twitter it’s all about what makes his cat “sad.” It’s pretty funny.
OK, I need to go and get me some more cat therapy at home and later this week at the shelter.
