I picked up some kind of scratchy throat and headache bug that caused me to mostly miss Saturday at Shore Leave. I felt a bit better yesterday, and attended the con Sunday, but started to feel sick again after the Mystery Trekkie Theater presentation of "The Way To Eden". This was obviously cause and effect (I mean I probably should have gotten more rest).
I took a sick day, and seem to be throwing it off finally.
Heidi (the elderly Maine Coon mix tortie) has a long-standing habit of complaining about the food bowl as soon as she can see the bottom, regardless of the amount of food still in it.
Kimba (in userpic) seems to have learned it from her over the past few months.
After her latest vet visit, we've been giving Heidi (in userpic) glucosamine supplements. She's in good shape for a 15ish-year-old cat, but definitely starting to show her age.
The cats mostly get dry food, but the powder works best with soft food so that it will stay on top instead of falling to the bottom. Whenever we give Heidi her special meal, the other cats come crowding around to demand their share. I put some of the soft food aside for the purpose and offered it to the other cats... who turned their noses up at it and continued trying to get at Heidi's.
It could be something about the smell of the glucosamine powder, but I suspect it's just annoyance that one of the cats seems to be getting special treatment.
...if the original problem was that my computer randomly reboots every once in a while, up to twice in one day, it doesn't do either of us any good to ask whether or not the problem has been fixed half an hour after the tech leaves. Try looking up "randomly" in the dictionary.
