Tuesday and Trouble

Well, the worse thing I have always dreaded happened this morning. I had slept late after waking at 3:00 and having trouble getting back to sleep. It was 6:00 before I awoke again. I dressed and painted my face and ate my quick breakfast and opened the door for Missy to go out on the carport. I stepped back in just to get my car keys. I wanted to put the five cakes in my trunk. Just as I reached for my keys, I heard a terrible cat fight on the carport and rushed out just in time to see Missy and the Tom cat she has been leery of wrapped in fighting mode. There was a terrible snarling racket. When I opened the door to chase him off, he broke loose and ran. Missy immediately came back into the house and now will not come back out. I'll say one thing for her...she's a skilled fighter. I looked her over as best I could but could see no damage to her. There was cat hair all over the carport and since they are colored the same, I could not discover which cat it came from.  I didn't see any missing hair from her and there was a bunch on the carport.

I will have to watch her. The last cat fight she got into was a couple of years ago and a huge cyst raised on her back. That's when she spent ten days in the vet's hospital while he plied her with antibiotics. When I brought her home that time, I had to give her a week's worth of antibiotics myself morning and evening.

I am taking the cakes to Independence this morning at 8:15.  I am picking Bob up too because after I get my hair done, we want to eat at Big Cheese. We wanted to do that last week but they were closed getting new air conditioning installed and we had to settle for Pizza Hut...a poor substitute.  Today we will go to their Wal Mart and buy school supplies for next month's school supply back pack party. 

More later....I want to check on Missy.  What do you know! She ventured out again! I will sit out here awhile longer...boy, is she suspicious though!

That didn't last long. I came back in to get my coffee and she came back in with me.

More later to this saga.....

I went on to Independence and left the cakes. Then after we killed some time, we went to lunch at Big Cheese. When I got home I went on to work. There were hundreds of DVDs again and I finally got them put away by 2:30. I scanned bar codes the rest of the afternoon and finished the non fiction in the children's department. ...finally. Now I have no idea what is next.  I am hoping the college will call me for an interview soon. If I get on there, I may save my hands.  I think I'm going to have to take an Aleve tonight.

Bob is here now.I will finish this later.

Oh I hope she's truly unscathed. THe cat that I have now is an indoor cat because in the past I had ones that I let out as well and went through that same thing...fights and cysts and all sorts of troubles.

So far, so good! I hope she is unscathed.

I note a small hole on her back. I am watching her closely.
