The other cats are starting to settle down a little. Major improvement was letting Bobbem outside to run and be free. He isn't so aggro anymore and gets on just a little better with the other cats. We were amazed when he started playing with the kitten a few days after it arrived as he really doesn't know how to socialise at all.
Munchie has no fear or is a bit too fey to have any fear and has continued to push the boundaries where Bobbem is concerned. He really doesn't understand why she isn't scared.My axolotl population went down to one this week. Wiggy died on Tuesday night, .Poor Marvin, the oldest of them all is still going although he looks so lonely. We worked out that he is now over 15 years old and that is about 5 years past the normal life span in captivity.
I am a few days away from completing all my study. It is a nice feeling to get to the end of it and I am amazed that I managed to stick with a study plan for over a year. I would have been even less days away but a mishap while mowing lawns yesterday saw me spending an hour in out patients with a scratch on my right eye. Because I got up there straight away and started antibiotic drops in my eye, it is feeling much better today. Oh and if your wondering how I manage to have lawns when we haven't had rain for weeks.......it was where the garden sprinklers hit the lawn and patches here and there. It is mainly a dust bowl. I wasn't planning on mowing but myy neighbour bought himself a new ride on mower and hasn't been able to use it so he rode it over here for me to mow the yard and give it a good run.
My next project, if I don't get a job in the meantime, is to start decluttering my house. I have decided that there is just too much stuff in the cupboards and sheds around here and that a lot of it just has to go. Do I sound strong and determined? Well that is how I want to be when I do it but any of you that knows me, know quite well what a hopeless hoarder or collector (you choose) I am.
So that is my week, largely dominated by the animals that live here both permanently and temporarily. Only a week to go and Nicky will be home. Cross fingers she will get a new flat very quickly and then my animal population will be drastically cut.
