Default Oh God! She's back!

Sarsi's not stupid. ;-)


She is in fact the most intelligent cat to have ever owned me. I still
remember when she was about 12 weeks old and she worked out how to
open a bag of kitten kibble, then how to curl her paw to scoop out
then that if she wet her paw first she would get more kibble out with
each scoop! She managed about a quarter of a large bag before we
spotted her in action and put the bag in a cupboard...

She then learnt to open the cupboard door!

Cecilia has completely stunned us- we got a call last night from her
saying she had arranged for the tissue viability nurse to come at 1.30
next Tuesday! It's not the usual one Dave sees then again continuity
of care is a concept that we've only read about.....

Default Now THAT'S what I call ingratitude



Last night-an old friend of Dave's who happened to have to be in
London (he lives in Edinburgh) arranged to meet Dave in the "Bells"
along with some other of his friends from the Fortean Times ;list so
of course let's ignore the fact that I have been off sick for 2 days
some sort of tummy bug- seems to have passed and if I am honest I
probably could have made it in Friday but I just wanted to make sure I
shook it completely I now have to persuade Dave that as his friend can
make his way down from Edinburgh and specially select a meeting place
5 minutes from us then surely despite your hay fever/cold you could
make an effort?

So he did and had a great time- we both did

Now consider this...

Dave- around pretty much most of the time- occasional source of ham
and skritchies

Lesley- Carts food and litter from the shops. Buys cat toys. Brushes
Sarsi with zoom groom (Dave can't grip it properly). Cleans water and
food dishes and fills same. Scoops cat litter. Empties and washes
trays. Refills litter tray and carts the heavy bags of damp litter
down to the bins. Makes special trips to vet for Hills S/D -worries
that she gets them stuff they like. Buys ham. Also good for a nibble
of chicken when making her sandwiches for work. Plays with toys and
offers skritchies

When we got back- guess who the pair of them were all over?

Ungrateful little so and so's

I get up at 6:30 AM to let Kayla and Jake and Molly out, and to feed
them and take care of their needs. I spend most of the day involved
with all three of them. I operate the brush and the doors, provide
the toys and rides to the park. And throw a ball or Frisbee about
1,000 times.

But at night I go to bed first. (Charlie sleeps in a LOT later than
6:30). So he is in charge of evening treats and bedtime for the fur
kids.

You can see the change over in attitude about three in the afternoon,
as they start to cozy up to him. By the time I go to bed, Kayla is on
the sofa with her chin on his knee looking at him with adoration.

Default Is this revenge

Hi

After our dear district nurses vanished for a time then resufaced Dave
asked for the tissue viability nurse to come round, which did not go
down at all well with Cecilia

But she did call her round....and she came and was utterly horrified
at how little of her original care plan had been carried out-and
completely sympathised with the fact that due to not knowing when they
were coming round Dave couldn't have a bath or shower and could not
believe how little the nurses had come round in fact she slipped Dave
a complaintd form before,Cecilia turned up.

So the score is that they will come round every Tuesday meaning that
come next week Dave can finally have a bath the night before alas
after we had told several nurses that we were worried about his other
leg and nothing was done it has now become clear that there is a
potential ulcer on that side so he has to have that dressed as well

He is dreaming about it even as I type this

The next stage is to get a plastic waterproof dressing to wear in the
shower and to organise proper stockings and one of those glide things
so we can take the stocking off and on if we can do that then the
nurses will come once every 2 months to make sure things are okay

But Cecilia is well and truly ****ed off so I wouldn't want to be Dave
next Tuesday
