Arya’s Big Plastic Thing

Posted By Beth Terry On August 6, 2008 @ 11:46 pm In pet care | 12 Comments

Oh, da hoomiliashun!

Well, what can you do when little kitties just lick off the bitter lotion we put on their sutures to keep them from doing just that? Bitter! Yum Yum! Anyone need a plastic bottle of bitter lotion? My cat thinks it tastes like dessert.

At least Arya’s fur will grow back. Some cats look like this all over [1]… on purpose.

Arya would thank you all for your nice words and wishes for her recovery, but she’s a cat and too busy trying to figure out how to get that darned lampshade off her head (and plus, she’s kinda stoned right now, the little druggie), so I will thank you all instead. Thank you so very, very much.

The CRRA Conference presentation [2] went really well today despite my lack of sleep last night and weekend of kitty worries. Hope to write more about that and get back to my regular blogging schedule very soon. (Maybe I’ll combine plastic tallies for two weeks this coming Sunday.)

Oh! And I keep forgetting to mention that I was happy to be included as an honorary contributor to the new monthly Green Moms Blog Carnival, the first of which was hosted by Organic Mania [3] this week. The organizers dubbed me and a few other child-free women “mothers of the earth,” but I actually think I prefer “kitty mama” at this point. Each month, the posts on the carnival will all address a particular topic, this month’s being global warming. I liked the challenge of relating plastic to global warming [2] in the post I wrote this month and look forward to finding further ways to stretch my understanding of the impacts of plastic on the environment.
