Subject: RE: July-2010-DeClutter & Exercise Accountability
By judicious re-stacking, and removal of a couple of big stew pans, I have a tidy cupboard again. I de-framed some old photos which would be better off in an album, and fitted a safety gate across Freya's bedroom door for when she tries to do a runner while I am sorting things out. Also for a month or two hence, when I try her out in a bed instead of the travel cot, which she will be too big for, before long.

I had planned another steady sorting out/ironing day today, around my 10am hair trim, but the cat has got himself hurt again, and so it's a trip to the vet for 11.30. I should be able to get there earlier than that, so hopefully will get seen quicker too. I would have taken an earlier one, and carted him with me via the hairdresser, but he hates car trips, and I'd have to take him in with me, where the dryers would freak him out. This time it doesn't look like another cat's had him. Can't work it out. There's a neatly removed area of hair around it, as if somebody has had a look at it. There is what appears to be a puncture mark at the top, and scraped off skin in a strip below (just the very top layer). I bathed it with antiseptic last night, but he's not wanting to move today, or eat and drink. I think he's gone sore and stiff. I wonder if a dog got him and the owner had a look. The receptionist at the vet says it's not a typical place for a cat fight wound (last time his throat was got).

Had a day out yesterday (Great Yorkshire Show) so nothing got done. I had to go to a meeting later too.
