Cherry Pie

There is a cherry pie in the oven. It smells good.

Although I had this on my wishlist at ThinkGeek, I found one very similar one at Costco for the same price this weekend, so now my lap is air-cooled by a nifty USB-powered fan.

I had to take my super-uber-sensitive cat to the vet for his checkup and vaccine boosters today, and he whined and cried from the moment I managed to trap him in his carrier pretty much until he came home and got out of it again. He was quite (more or less) when he was being examined, but he does tend to curl in on himself there and needs to be coaxed out. He weighs over FIFTEEN POUNDS (that's up three pounds from his last checkup). And seriously, he's a small cat. We need to work on his weight, and the vet actually suggested phasing out his dry food and giving him only regular wet meals, on a schedule, on the theory that cats benefit even more than humans from a low-carb diet. He also needs his teeth cleaned, but our vet thinks he's pretty healthy overall and probably just needs a cleaning, no extractions, and everything else is A-Okay.

Made a chicken soup from a stock made with the carcass of that Costco chicken, leftover mashed potatoes, brown rice, and snap peas. It was yummy.

Because there is nothing better:

Awwwww, poor little kitten who can't get out of the box. But mmmmmm, cherry pie. And it's too bad Gollum can't go on a wet-food diet to lose weight. He'd be in heaven. But even though my cats only get a little bit of canned once or twice a week, he just had to have a tooth extracted, and another one has a pocket of ook or something and will probably eventually have to come out. Meanwhile Grendel eats the exact same diet and is fine. *sigh*

Kittens in boxes, you just can't go wrong.

Of course, it's not a LOT of wet food, mind; most of that's still going to Silly. I suppose it makes some amount of sense that a cat would do well on a low-carb diet, considering. Hopefully Cairo won't need any extractions (Silly has almost no teeth left at all, which is why he ONLY gets wet food).

Cats!
