Well it has been a pretty shitty week leading up to my birthday and I hope it ends there. I am trying really hard to resolve all these things but it takes time, and that’s something I don’t have a lot of. I need to get these bad things off my chest & outta my mind so I can refocus.
01.15.2013 – my mom calls to tell me she got ringworm & she thinks it was my cat.
01.16.2013 – I determine that the mutated scratch on my face is also ringworm, I notify my roommate & she tells me she has it too. Great. Plan to clean over the long weekend.
01.17.2013 – I start treating my ringworm & check my cat for any outbreaks. She doesn’t have any so the vets won’t treat her but I do find Flea poop. Yay >.< I giver her the monthly Frontline Plus dose she was probably due hoping this helps & the poo is old. Grandma is also assaulted this night (I don’t find out till saturday)
01.18.2013 – I wake up with a sore throat. Water my plants & notice one has little itty bitty flies or gnats, (why & how?!)
01.19.2013 – full blown cold, with all the usual bullshit. Make it to hoop class but sleep a lot till Monday. I also get notified by my aunt about my grandma & speak to her briefly. Cancel all my activities for the weekend as well.
01.20.2013 – sleep, no cleaning is done but roommate cleans up a little.
01.21.2013 – sleep more, run a couple needed errands. That night Kittens eye ulcer flares and the cone goes on & medicine regime is started.
01.22.2013 – I’m petting my kitten when I feel a little ball of something, I pick it out thinking it’s a lint ball stuck in her fur. No it’s a fucking flea! I flush it down the toilet & check her for more but don’t find any. After that I didn’t even want to touch her but she’s so sad & lonely with the cone on. I wanted to lock her in her kennel but didn’t have the heart too, I am sure my room is infested with fleas now or something. I have hardwood floors so I am worried they are in my furniture or my roommates room’s carpet. Her cat has to be brining them in because I never had them before my kitten & she is indoor only.
01.23.2013 – so I made my kitten an appointment at a local groomer. On Saturday I am cutting all her hair off so that it is short & shaved & I can see what’s going on in there. Plus she is getting a flea bath to get rid of the poo & any other culprits that might be hiding in there. This will help with the ringworm issue too since it is hard to spot outbreaks on persians. I am just so disgusted by her that I hope I can wait until Saturday without losing it.
I really hope my grandma’s necklace will bring me some better luck in the next couple of weeks cuz I need it.
I don’t know how many other kitten related problems I can deal with right now. I haven’t even been hungry since I was sick this weekend because I think I am so stressed out thinking about these things. I was also really worried my health insurance was going to drop me because I paid my bill late on accident. Luckily I did get a new bill from them last night for next month so I don’t think they are, thank god. Losing my insurance that took me 3 years to get would be the blow that would send me into a severe depression spiral.
I have a lot of shit I need to work on right now, like staying organized & keeping shit clean. I am terrible about having a big pile of clothes in my room since I change outfits several times before getting dressed. The rest of my house is kept pretty clean though, I need to swiffer the furballs more though clearly.
