My poor kitty-poops.


It’s been very hot lately, and the heat doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Lucy puddles herself anywhere that is convenient. Under the table, on her plastic tub, in the hallway, in front doorway, etc. The only place she seems to be avoiding is the back of the couch. I’m not sure if this is due to the placement of her plastic tub or the heat. Both locations provide ample view of the entire apartment in addition to easy access to food, window views, and overall cozy-ness.


Surprisingly, her crankiness level hasn’t increased due to the heat. I did shut her out of the bedroom last night though and she wasn’t pleased about that. I got a deliberate mouthing this morning before I left for work.

Pro-Tip: Medicine your cat in the middle of the day when it’s hot and the cat is at it’s laziest.

Lucy has been re-scratching. The flea collar doesn’t seem to be holding up as well as I had hoped. Thankfully, @hylaweb gave me some Advantage that she didn’t need anymore (her cats don’t go outside and live on the 3rd floor). Jonathan sneaked out and left me to fend for myself with Dagger Nails McBitey Face. She was laying in her favorite spot next to the door.

As I perch down in an Asian squat next to her, gently petting her head and letting her sniff my hand. She knew. She knew and she didn’t like it. She knew, she didn’t like it, and she gave me a stink face. I see her now, sitting in her spot again with a new piece of weekly flyer licking her toes. -Sigh-,  I did not achieve any advantage with her that round. Lucy was all too aware of the medicine in my other hand.

So I sat down and tried to watch The Woman in Black. Bad idea. 7pm rolled around. It was still light out and Lucy was puddled on the window sill spacing out in the heat and watching the neighbors going in and out of the complex. The idea struck me to get her under the collar with the medicine. MUAHAHAH. Genius!

Right hand out as a peace offering. Petting her nose.

Left hand out of her field of view. Advantage administered!
