My cat is a gentle cat, most of the time. She’s kind, and loving, and sweet. Unfortunately, she can also be a bit of a doormat, and so she’s been having fights with a new cat in the neighbourhood. She had a nasty looking wound on the top of her head, so we decided to call the vet tonight, and we went in for an appointment.
She hated it. Turned out she has an abscess, and the vet had to use some not nice methods to clean it. Scabs were removed, irrigation was done, and Minoes protested vehemently. The vet, who was lovely, told us (well, me) what was needed to do the maintenance at home.
That’s where the killing comes in. I am to massage the goo out of Minoes’ head once a day, and we have to keep the wound open. All of this she will not like. So, guys, if I stop posting on Snark, and stop answering e-mails, you know what has occurred. Most likely, she will have smothered me. (It’s what she’s been practising after all.)

Ocassionally, I find things in movies that relate to my life. To be honest most of the time they are disney movies. So when I had to be a cox for a boat yesterday morning, in the godawful rain that was coming down, I found myself humming the ‘rainy song’ from The Winnie The Pooh Adventures.
It really was quite appropriate, as I quite felt like poor little Piglet did!
The last year of university has been a bit trying. A lot of stuff going on in my personal life, means being distracted whilst trying to do university work, and unfortunately university work has therefore suffered.
I am so glad it’s over though!
I can have a somewhat relaxing holiday now, and even though I have a resit in August, I actually feel good about it. Obviously it helps that I have done at least half the work for this already, and don’t have to do all of it again, but I’ve also recently joined a study support group, and they have helped me get the highest mark I’ve ever gotten (in university) on one of my exams!
Of course, I’ll be doing fun things too during the summer! Can’t have a relaxing time without fun! I’ll probably go see my little cousin who’s five (damn English language for only having one word for two genders. This one is female), we always have loads of fun together; I should really finish the bathrobe I started making in March, and I’m looking into making an infinity dress. Lots of rowing is in my future (I joined a club in the spring) and I’ll help promote the rowing club during introduction week for the University and University of Applied Sciences here in Groningen.
My summer will be awesome!
