Hi family- its a sweltering 32 degrees and its only 7am. we had a blackout last night for 3hrs, so no air-con. what a nightmare!
im borrowing todays question from Karen, who posted it in depression and changing it around a bit:
"Do you have pets? do they comfort you?"
I have the world's neediest cat. about 10yrs ago after our family cat had just died, my mum and sister went for a walk near our house and heard wailing- they looked in the storm water drain and saw a young cat with kittens. the cat had obvious signs of abuse and neglect. they rescued her and the kittens and the kittens all went to good homes. the cat stayed with us. Mum named her 'Ady'. I have no idea why. but it stuck and she is SO intuitive! when i went through my last breakup and was a total emotional mess, she slept beside me the whole time. when i came home after my last surgery, she wouldnt leave my side. when dad is sick with his menieres disease, she stays by his bedside.
the Vet says she has 'anxiety and personality' issues from being abused. she gets seperation anxiety if she thinks we are leaving; Heaven forbid mum starts packing for a holiday- she sees the suitcases and flips out.
but she has given us SO much joy over the years, she is GREAT company and i love that she is a little weird in the head- cos i identify! she is also impossibly cute. she is a blessing, a source of joy and she is special.
How about you, dear family?
