Operation Oysterhood: 26 May

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

Miś & Krystian

We celebrated Polish Mother’s Day on Skype today. Mom said not to buy her anything, so Krystian went out and collected a bouquet of wild field flowers and I designed a special e-card for her – our beloved Miś.

The day was more stressful for a cat mother in Rosebank. After Salieri had completely refused to eat the special thyroid diet food (chicken mixed in or not), she and I returned to the vet and got her new thyroid medication. She was allowed to eat anything she wanted after the meds had been administered by the vet. I have three happy cats in the house again. We managed the evening dose without any complications. And there was a portion of lovely cooked chicken with carrot waiting for Salieri afterwards. Everyone is going to bed with a sigh of relief and a full tummy.

(I might be in need of tranqualisers after the past few weeks, but that’s another story.)

My love was here after work for a simple evening braai. The world seems an easier place to face than it had seemed only twelve hours ago.

Good night.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
