Well, Ivy is home for the moment... Thank you all for your concern. ^_^ He's not completely well yet; he has use of three of his legs so far, but not all four (not for want of trying, poor little guy). We'll just have to wait and see what happens...

In other news, I'll be effectively out of the way for the next five days or so; have a relative visiting till Tuesday, so will be busy entertaining. It does mean I get a belated birthday present, though. ^_~ (And as much I'd want a book or a manga as a gift, I always feel weird about sharing my oddly-regarded tastes with family... So, I think maybe some new clothes will have to do; I need a new outfit, anyways. ^_^;)

As for my birthday... Despite the kitty scare, I did get a box full of European souvenirs from my parents (mostly cool Russian stuff); plus, my sweetie didn't forget my birthday, like I feared. ^_^;

Also, since I'll be busy this weekend, I don't think I'll be able to work on "Double-edged Sword" till next week. :/ I really want to, too... (Although young Joshua and Leon are working their way into the story a little too much for my taste; I really need to keep the focus on Carlyle and Ismea, dang it!)

That's all for now... Off to bed, for me. (Posting mostly cause I can't sleep. 0_o)

EDIT: BTW, I keep getting Star Wars flashes when writing for "Double-edged Sword", what with the master and student dynamic between Carlyle and Joshua, and Carlyle being seduced to the Dark Side, so to speak. 0_o "There is no serenity, only passion." Yeesh...

My cat Ivy is very sick again. I was taking a nap this afternoon when I awoke to him meowing very loudly; this was because his hind legs weren't working.

This has happened before, so the first thing I did was bring Ivy to the nearby animal hospital. Easier said than done, since my sweetie is out of town (he'll be back tonight). So I had to walk with a plaintively mewing cat in a carrier, on a hot day; still not sure I should've moved him, but I guess it was the right thing to do (it's what saved him the last time).

You see, Ivy has an enlarged heart; last time, that's what cut off the circulation to his legs. Sounds like he has a blood clot this time; I really hope he'll be okay...

All in all, not a pleasant way to spend my birthday.

I'm waiting for the phone call from the vet now... I still need to take a shower and clean the house; maybe that'll take my mind off this for a bit (and having to break the news to my sweetie; Ivy is his particular cat). Sigh...
