she's a little huodini

poor little b'elanna has been stuck in a cone for the last two-ish weeks. her stitches should get removed tomorrow

but this cone, y'all!
luckily there's only a few hours between when the bf goes to bed and when I get up in the morning.
but sometimes I find her with one of her little arms through the cone.
dunno how.

funny story though.
we bought an inflatable donut and a soft cone and a collar and a harness and other shit.
well that soft cone connects with velcro
and we've got a little fleece blanket in there with her (in addition to a heating pad) and the bf went in to check on her after I'd gone to bed.
he opens the door and finds her laying on the blanket...
with the expossed velco sticking her to the blanket.
poor kitty was stuck!

kinda related: that automatic litter box has been going great.
she's been on paper litter since surgery so only got to use it a couple of weeks so far but if it only lasts 3 years I would def buy another. unsure on how much shorter I'd go - but $25/mo for 3 years is fine by me.

ice cream update:

jasmine green tea - xcj - it's actually fucking amazing and will def be ordering more.
it's much sweeter than I wanted initially but it really grew on me. the floral jasmine and hint of bitter green tea with milky undertones.

apple cinnamon - heb creamy creations - it's pretty good. seems only mediocre compared to the jasmine green tea but it is quite good. the best is when you get ice cream, apples, and pastry in the same bite

the litter robot arrived today. hope it lives up to the hype.

b'ellana of house murder mittens

so the bf and I go out for dinner a couple of tuesdays ago and as we leave the restaurant this little black kitten comes up to us.
very friendly, just rubbing on us and follows us to the car and even jumps into the car with us.

after some back and forth we decide to bring the kitten home and make some posts on nextdoor and facebook.

one of the guys at the office says one of the girls is looking for a kitten so I send her a pic and she shows her husband and they are good to take the kitten.

of course I'm sad to see the kitten go - she's my dream kitten.
super affectionate and a total purr bot.

the monday we were handing the cat of the bf was off for the holiday..
brings kitten up to the office..
find out she has worms (couple of folks have a veterinary background)..
and that chick wants to make kitten an indoor/outdoor cat.

stomp the brakes there, she's the sweetest thing and def not an outside cat.

talk things over with the bf.
he says we can keep her if she's ~my~ cat.

so now I have a cat.
and have spent a fuckton of money this month buying an automatic litter box, automatic feeder, cat fountain, and another kitty heating pad.

she's an older kitten - 5 months according to the vet.
her feeder and water fountain arrived today, litter box should be here on thurs, heating pad on fri...

we're keeping segregated for now until she gets fixed and declawed.
feel bad leaving her by herself for such long portions of the day but she'd fuck up the other cats.
and torts hates her.

but she's my dream cat.
would've waited 10 years before another cat but I couldn't let this little kitty be outside and get run over or something.
it's gonna be a big adjustment for all of us.

updates, lotsa updates

I bought an elliptical! the bf has got it mostly set up so will prolly give it a whirl tomorrow or over the weekend.

not just because we're gluttons, but because I wanna be more active as I get older.
trying to walk 3 miles a day so I usually spend just over an hour on the treadmill each morning.
plus, it helps with the anxiety.

but, we are gluttons.
for new year's the bf ordered 7 (SEVEN!) party trays for just the two of us to graze all weekend.
luckily they didn't have one of them, so we ~only~ wound up with six.
a finger sandwich tray, a croissant sandwich tray, and pinwheel wrap tray, a fruit tray, a vegetable tray, and a cheese tray (they didn't have the meat tray to go with it).
we watched the star trek movies and ate the shit outta those party trays.

I got super trashed up at the office on friday.
black out drunk tbh.
last thing I recall was chatting with a couple of the girls and then I woke up in bed.
need to find out if I was being obnoxious but the bf was trashed too (though no quite as bad as me) and the other folks that were there have been out on vacation or sick.
fun fun.

don't think I mentioned this. the bf made the feast of seven fishes for christmas.
not all at once, thank goodness, but spread out over christmas weekend.
it was all super delicious and after such an extravagant effort I don't fault him one bit for choosing party trays for new year's, lol!

the office christmas parties went well. didn't get super drunk or anything though I did get home from the gift exchange party much later than the bf anticipated.
lots of fun, though. and as I mentioned, I won the ugly christmas sweater contest.
also got an achievement award from the bosses. it's nice to feel appreciated.

and on that bombshell, I better start my workday already.
