green little review

Poem for Tuesday

My poor big yellow cat had a very difficult Monday -- she had to get up early (after having been starved overnight) to be taken to the vet to have a tooth pulled. This required general anesthesia, intravenous fluids, and other things that made her very woeful -- plus she has to take antibiotics for the next week, which will undoubtedly make all of us woeful -- but her gums will be much better without a rotting tooth, and she is not complaining in the least about having to eat only wet food for the time being. (It was a beautiful night here, and it would have been wise to remember, while having a lengthy conversation with a cat that included the line, "Give me another 'nehhhhh' so I can see your teeth, Lady Mreepuss," that the neighbor might be out on her deck where she could overhear and burst out laughing.)

My parents stopped by with cupcakes on their way home from New York, so that was dessert after we retrieved Rosie. Every time I looked at a news site on Monday, it was dominated by the missing French plane and Dick Cheney trying to divert attention from the Bush Administration's atrocious record on just about everything by saying he isn't opposed to gay marriage in the states where it's already legal. I couldn't go to the vigil for George Tiller because I needed to pick up the cat. In other news...I am sleepy and can't remember any other news.
