Kitty had his vet appointment Saturday morning. He is OK although he does have an infection on the part of his paw that seemed to bleed get irratated often. He is on some antibiotics and when that goes away if the bleeding persists he will probably have to go in again and have his paw opened up a bit to shave down any bone that is remaining., sometimes it can grow back a bit. Hope he doesn’t have to go back but we’ll see. I think when he goes running quickly in the carpet that it gets caught in the ground a bit. A couple of days before his appointment he ran outside when I was getting BBQ sauce, he had it very planned out because I didn’t even see him nearby and I was looking out for him since he is always trying to get out. I should have known since this time when I went in he wasn’t standing at the door waiting. He came back later on at night. I pretty much stayed up until 11.30 watching Inu Yasha waiting for him. He was wet, wet, wet with some very muddy paws and the spot on his foot was covered in a bit of blood too. About an hour or two later when he came to my room he was still a little damp. I swear he got seperated from his mom too early becasue of things like that. Before Kathy washed him becasue he smelled particularly nasty and hours later the end of his tail was still completely wet. Also it would explain how much of a suck he is. Jen said he was sleeping by her head the few nights he stayed over. I think he was looking for protection from the other cats. Anyways yeah so he was out in the rain during the downpour on Wednesday night. Oh yeah he also has gingivitas. They gave some treats that are suppose to help with it but being the cat that he is he doesn’t eat them. I haven’t had him eat a treat in over a year. Right now one of the samples they gave is mixed in his food dish and the other three are in a cat nip bag. He did sniff them for quite a long time.
Kathy has been studying for the week for her two exams on Saturday so she wasn’t around and I was bored and lonely. I pretty much finished off watching Inu Yasha. I must say they ended the TV show rather badly. It just kind of ends, nothing was really given to fans, no conclusions on any sort of story line or romantic links or anything. I guess I am suppose to continue reading the manga but I don’t have time for that. I think I will be picking up the new movie when it gets released this month. It seems we always get another Inuyasha movie before going to see Leia, Keh!
Saturday I spent most of the day with Kathy, although she was reading and writing and I was playing a whole lot of Suduku. I finally unlocked the last mode in Daily Training, it is voice math. I hope it’s voice recognition is better with numbers than it is with me saying the colour Blue. It only seems to register properly half the time. I have been keeping my brain age under 30 for the week, even got it to 20 a couple of times. I played the EyeToy Play 2 game finally. I didn’t like it too much, the games I expected them to be simple in nature but they don’t have too much replay value, at least in single player mode, although they are a bit amusing. Mr. Chef was kind of gross though, he looks like he has an infected bellybutton. The mini games the back of the box refers to are basically all the simple mini games they have in the middle of the games to break up the ,monotony of the main games. They are of course the only things available in multi player mode. and you have to play that mode it seems one at a time. I can see it being fun to play while drunk or naked, especially chop the pickle.
We spent a couple of hours at Riverside Park, I never really been in their animal section, it is pretty basic compared to Waterloo park, a couple of horses, goats, sheeps, and cows. It looks like they use to have rabits but they do not anymore, it appears that they keep the enclosure for snails and another one for wild squirrels. The park has a lot of Geese, there was a couple with wounded wings and another with a broken wing and missing foot, poor goosey. Someone started throwing some bread at the ducks and than all of a sudden all of the geese in the water formed a single file line and went to the source. It was quite odd to see, especially since we didn’t know that there was a bread throwing going on, they just all started to organize and leave, I thought maybe I smelled or they were getting ready to flank me from behind. The park also had an Egyptian Goose, it was mentioned in the local paper previosuly and it does look like a cross between a duck and a goose, it was interesting to see. The geese didn’t really accept him, when he was getting closer for some bread one charged at him to keep him away. He hung out with the ducks and the goose with the broken wing.
We took a less direct route home when we done at the park, I have never really been in the part of Preston on the far side of King St, there was some nice houses there with some big empty parks which mostly consisted of nothing. We than came across what I believe is Cambridge’s most central sewage treatment plant. It smelled terribly and that smell lingered around the entire area, I think it is still in my clothes. I don’t understand how some real estate developers could build houses so close to the place. There was houses across the street from it. The whole area actually is a fairly densely populated area, there isn’t really anything commercial or industrial near by. I’m sure the 33 degree heat wasn’t helping, at least it wasn’t hotter.
The A&P didn’t have the Nigri Sushi Combo, they did have maki with just fish though, no veggies so at least that is good. Oh yeah the Korean food place by Laurier didn’t have the Salmon Maki and I was reluctant to get the Ell since everywhere that I have had ell tended to either BBQ it or Fry it or something it just tasted kind of skinny and weird, not smooth at all but this place made it so tastey, it wasn’t cooked at all, yay!. It was so fresh and delicious.
It is about 10.30 now, I am going to bed, I’ll post pictures tomorrow, now it is time for sleep..
