Snowball and I both needed the ER yesterday. Guess which one of us got it?

The VA staffers said they'd call, they'd text, when my ride was arranged. Nope. I texted to ask for an update. Nobody responded.

I broke another tooth with the compulsive teeth gritting that comes with half a dozen nightmares per night. Now I get to stagger through the weekend while trying to figure out how to slap these people around.

The ER came to Snowball. Well, not really an ER. It was just me freaking out over the fact that his stomach bandage keeps aggravating the sore on his stomach. Other than that, his little scrapes are healing amazingly fast. I wasn't sure about the honey-as-a-wound-dressing thing before, but it sure seems to work just fine. And the vet came to him at a ridiculously reasonable price. She's more worried about the animals getting taken care than she is her costs. Damn. The nicest people aren't cut out for business, are they?

I might get him back today. The other kitties have taken up residence in the attic with me, though, so this will be interesting. Maybe they it's time for more supervised visits with Morgie. These consist of Morgie sniffing around curiously while Snowball looks offended, like a grand dowager who's just discovered a peasant at the ball. I had four cats curled up with me last night before Fred got too enthusiastic rolling around on my head and fell off the bed. He was so embarrassed I guess he had to go slink off and pretend to Ginger that he meant to do that.

Time for lunch. I guess.

Well I'm glad that Snowball got help but I'm truly pissed off that the VA isn't more considerate of the people they are supposed to be helping :(

I don't think anyone at the VA should own a house. "I painted that siding last decade, why is the color so faded?" "I just put a new roof on there last month! No goddamn tree crashing through it should leave a hole!" "So the plumbing's leaking and the basement is full of water. I still moved all my old financial records down there to make room for my new couch. I'm sure the mildew and slime on all the walls will go away!"

"...before Fred got too enthusiastic rolling around on my head and fell off the bed"

I don't know why, but clumsiness is funnier in cats than with any other animal, I swear.

I'm sorry that the VA is continuing to fuck you over. At least Snowball gets better healthcare than that! :p
