Hot and dry would be a little more bearable- it's in the 90's and feels like the 100's because of the humidity :/ ugh

Yeah, more hugs for Simon, as soon as he'll let you love him a bit.

Latté got a claw snag the other night, she was hanging off the side of the bed by one toe.

I freaked out trying to grab him before he strangled himself. I finally got him up against me so he'd stop struggling, in the process we demolished the plug on the dryer. At least, other than being scared, he seems to be okay. He let me feel around to see if he was hurting. He let me brush a couple handfuls of loosened hair off him before he wanted down. He took off & hid for a while. I did get him to eat a few treats but he didn't want me to touch him & I don't think he has been in the bathroom yet. I had to leave for a couple hours & when I got back he was still skittish but sat by me while I ate supper. Of course he got a bite or two if chicken. Now he is laying in his usual spot on top of me. He had me worried but I think he'll be okay. It might take him a while to go back in the bathroom with me though.
OMG that is so scary for both of you! I'm glad you're both ok! Something similar happened to my bf and my cat last year- the cat (who weighs 15 lb and kills rabbits) had his paw caught in the cat door, and was screaming and twisting around on the floor. Bf grabs Golly immediately to keep him from tearing his paw apart, and the cat was so freaked out he chomped down on bf's hand. Teeth went down to the bone, and Mike had to grab the top of the cats head and pry his teeth out. Luckily, there happened to be a jacket sitting right there, within reach that he was able to restrain the cat in and free his paw. The cat shook himself off and trotted away like it was no big thing, but Mike's hand swelled up like a softball and he had to go get anti-biotics. So like I said, I'm so glad you're ok!!

Cindercat, I hope Simon has calmed down since that happened. Poor baby.

Skittle - I would've been in a panic! And poor Mike - OUCH!!

I had a busy day today - one of my grandsons recently had a birthday, and we're having his party on Sunday. He's two. Went to the market and got all the veggies for a veggie tray, the fixins' for a couple of dips, and some various meats, cheeses and French rolls for sandwiches for 25.

Can't wait to see little man tear into his presents and play with them with his little cousins.

(Kylie, what time is it there now? It's 10PM here, so going to bed shortly....yawn...)

Cheryl, I hope your party goes well. Two year olds are so neat because they are starting to be totally aware of what is going on that this "is for me"

Kylie, it is 10 pm here as well.

I am fighting off a flu bug - I think I am getting it from hubby. But my week with the kid's camp was incredible! It is so good to be able to do things again and not be worried about my health or looking after Dad (I miss him, but now I know he isn't suffering I am finally feeling a bit of freedom).
