A cat’s life

Must be tough, being a cat. Sleeping all day in the softest, warmest spot you can find, waiting for someone to pet you and feed you and play with you and clean out your litter box and … – honestly? I think I would like to switch place for a day or two at the moment. The very day the sun came out, I got sick. Again. So far this year has been rather crappy – I had a cough, which turned into bronchitis, then I injured my heel, had another cough, injured my ankle and shinbone and now I am again sitting at home after work with a cough and a runny nose and lungs that sound suspiciously like whistling through wet paper. I have had to come to terms with the fact that I will most definitely not do an obstacle course this year, had to put my weight-loss on hold (again – my immune system does not like a low-calorie lifestyle while it is fighting bugs), our place looks like a mess and I am falling behind on even the most simple of tasks, such as scheduling appointments or doing my paperwork. At least I got the taxes done in time this year. Took me only four months of complaining and three hours of wading through numbers.

At least during Ramadan we only have to work five hours per day, which means I have two more hours to sleep per day, or get my stuff in order … and now enough complaining, my sweet potatoes are done, and I could do with a cup of ginger lemon tea. Take care of yourselves, and don’t forget to rest!

    Your cat is just trying to teach you how to live, that’s all.

    Hope you feel better soon. Take your own advice, and rest. ♥

      We should all be more like cats – fluffy psychopaths purring on other people’s laps. I think I could do that for a while. ^^

      Thanks for the well wishes!

    Hope you are feeling better . I could get used to laying in a cat basket all day.

      Cats have as sole purpose in life to lie in the warmest spot they can find. I think that’s a great philosophy. ^^ (The cold is going away, but slowly … )
