Got the results of Nefer's culture back: she has, basically, two UTIs, i.e. two different sets of bacteria present in abnormally high numbers. The good news: the antibiotic injection she got is effective for one of them. The bad news: the other one needs an antibiotic that only comes in pills or liquid.

However! We had made the discovery last week that we can give Nefer a (very tiny, very crumbly) anti-nausea pill wrapped up in bread, and she will eat it. So I picked pills, and Toby dropped by the vet on the way home to pick them up. And yes: Nefer will eat an antibiotic pill if it is encapsulated in a squishy bread pill.

So we now have a loaf of bread bought solely for the cat, of the squishiest bread we could find that we could also tolerate if, for example, one of us needed to make a sandwich in an emergency. (i.e., generic wheat balloon bread, but not quite as fluffy and insubstantial as Wonder Bread.)

Nefer is happy that we have started this habit of randomly giving her pieces of bread. Sora is convinced that we are somehow giving her treats and not him, even though we let him sniff the bread and he does not recognize it as food. So he occasionally gets an empty Pill Pocket, because we don't want him to associate Pill Pockets with vets or medicine.

LJ is not letting me reply to comments at the moment, so "Thank you and I'm feeling much better today" is my response to those of you who wished me well with the migraine. :)

I took a vacation day today to get some work done on various art things and OF COURSE I wake up with a terrible headache. It's being slowly driven into submission but I'm not yet at the point where I can sit and focus on a screen for that long.

...I should probably get off the intertubes, in that case.

  • Oh! The arterial spray!
  • You can try to take that Pepsi challenge, but I already did. As [a friend of ours] says, don't start none, won't be none. Except I always win.
  • No blood to spill today? Looks like you got plenty!
  • Let's play Pin the Bullet on the Super Mutant. Fun for the whole family!
  • You don't need that leg...oh ho ho! He flew!
  • Fine! I'll just shoot you in the leg, then! You don't need that knee.
  • Is that a freakin glowing skull? That's not creepy at all. I can't pick it up. Damn.

I've got the title for the Assassin's Creed parody pic, and I don't know why it didn't occur to me before:

nothing is true / everything is knitted


For those who don't know, the actual assassin's creed is "Nothing is true/everything is permitted." (It's got some sort of hand wavy meaning to justify the good guys saying it, but really, it's got the Rule of Cool going for it more than anything else.)
