I hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday so far. I am Spring Cleaning. I know it is a little late for Spring Cleaning but it is 105 outside. I just hate to see July and August if the temperatures are already like this. Alaska here I come! I started outside this morning. I went and bought a new water hose and also Round-Up. I was going strong at 5:30 a.m. I had to dodge two wildcats every time I made a move.
“AND HERE I MUST INTERJECT A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT’
I mentioned wildcats. I don’t know if you heard it on TV last night or not. But if you live in a wooded area were wildcats are known to roam, you need to be aware of this. There is a tick that lives on the wildcats. The ticks fall off the wildcats and gets on our indoor cats (only if you let them out). The ticks get on the indoor cats when they go outside. And give them “wildcat fever,” this is a fatal disease and there is no known cure for it. They said the cats get sick and they don’t know what it is till they do blood work. Then they find out the cats has “wildcat fever,” and it is too late, just a matter of time before the cat dies. They said the best way to avoid this is to keep your cats inside.
I caught hell last night for playing with two of my wildcats. But I don’t figure Stinker is in any danger. He is not close to them or around them. I am the one around them and I have always made it a practice to check myself for ticks.
Then I get throwed in my face perhaps I caught something from them. Remember when I had all the knots suddenly appearing on my head. Nobody knew what was causing the knots. Who knows I still have them popping out and (knock on wood) they haven’t killed me yet.
I love how this goes from me working my butt off to wildcat fever, Gee! Well I am going to go get me some more Cranberry juice (I have got to the point I crave this stuff, weird, huh?) and start posting. I hope everyone have a lovely day. Remember to keep your cats inside. Give’em a hug and kiss for me!
One more thing, you will notice there is a new post on the blog today, “Saint of the Day.” I have been asked by several Practitioners if I would include this daily and I said yes. So “Saint of the Day” will become a regular feature now. If you have anything you would like to see or request, just let me know and I will get it on here for you.
