Because of the aforementioned migraine, I spent most of the day in bed with The Dog happily snoring next to me. I have discovered a new way to get her to stop eating our guests which is to pick her up and hold her until she stops barking. The only problem is when you have a migraine, this is a pain almost worse than death. Or at least you want either The Dog or you to keel over so that the stabbing pain from the barking will stop. But after about five minutes of agony, she calmed down and slept in my lap. So now I realize I must spend more time with The Dog when company comes which does not make me happy. This new technique had better work because if it doesn't teach her to be nice to our guests, I will be really mad that I got dog hair all over me for nothing.
I know Child 2 is alive and well because she is sending me joke texts. Apparently what you get when you cross a performance troupe with cows is the Moo Man Group. She must be having fun. This cat in New Zealand, however, is having a worse day than me.
He was abandoned by his owners and found his way to a McDonald's parking lot where he would beg for fries and chicken nuggets which apparently made him really, really sick over time and in very poor health. An SPCA employee noticed him and took him home, but for a while he wouldn't eat regular cat food because it wasn't McDonald's. However, now he is OK and you can see above that he looks pretty healthy. So thank you, Frankie the cat, for reminding me to be grateful that I will never eat another Chicken McNugget because obviously, a diet like that can kill a cat, and also people allergic to wheat.
