one cat carrier, plastic with a handle on top

one bag of Swheat Scoop kitty litter

several cans of Fancy Feast, various flavors

I'm planning to donate the cans of diabetic cat food to the vet, but if you know someone whose cat eats the stuff, they can have them.

I will mail the carrier, but not the other stuff as it's just too heavy to be worth it.

Dear everyone,

My friend Sheyna has very kindly started a fund so that I can get a better memorial tattoo for Samantha than what I could afford on my own.

The page is here.

Please direct any questions about this to Sheyna and not to me, since I don't really know what's going on and am not doing very well emotionally.

thank you.

I would like to move back to Cambridge the weekend of the 25th-26th of this month. I can pay gas and feed whoever does this, or make you some art or something. Anyone want to volunteer? It'll be me, Samantha, and our stuff, and I will want to hold Sam on my lap and she'll shed on your car but not get under your feet or be loud or anything like that.

Anyone around Easter weekend who's up for taking care of Samantha? I'm thinking Saturday night, Sunday morning.

A bunch of pet food has been recalled. There's a story about it on CNN here, but the short version is that a lot of animals have died of kidney failure after eating this stuff. There are lists of the recalled food here.

Samantha is fine and doesn't eat a brand that was recalled.

The CO detector in my roommate's room just went off. The doors and window had been closed all morning. The other detector is not going off. The fire department has you leave messages if you don't have symptoms of poisoning, which I don't. I left a message but I have to go to school in half an hour and Samantha will be in the apartment. I don't know what I should do now other than open the windows, which I'm doing. Help?

Edit: I talked to Linda, and other than the omnipresent "you two need to clean your apartment" she's going to check into it. I'm leaving windows open and emailing my brother. No symptoms, but this isn't the first time this has happened and apparently it's going on with other people in the building.

Any locals up for watching Samantha this weekend? I'm going to Maine to see my relatives there and my roommate's cat-incompetent.

I'm going to be in Minneapolis from the evening of the 25th to the morning of the 30th.

I'm looking for someone in the Boston area to take care of Samantha and spend time with her while I'm gone, the trick being that she has to be fed and medicated twice a day. A pet sitter is vastly preferable to boarding, but I don't know of any so anyone who does, please speak up.

The ever-lovely Samantha is back on appetite stimulants and has been eating more than she has in months. She is currently sunning herself on the porch, and in general seems to be doing quite well, considering her arthritis.

I've been meaning to write an update on Samantha for a few weeks. Overall she's been doing quite well, considering. She's still diet-controlled, but off appetite stimulants she won't eat very much. I put her back on them a week or so ago. I'd been letting her have dry food, because she wanted it and I was happy that she was eating anything. When she started the stimulants she wanted more of it and I let her. Her blood glucose went up to 157 - this is just barely out of the optimal range, but it's enough to make her litterbox smell like honey - and I've switched her to wet food only. I've also been trying her on different flavors and so far I've learned that she only likes certain consistencies and doesn't seem to have much interest in fish. Her blood glucose is down to 94 as of this morning, which is right where we want it. So that's good.

What's going on right now, though, is that this morning after I fed her and medicated her and all that she threw up. It was thin and soupy, which is generally a bad sign, and there was a little bit of blood in it. I called my vet, who said they're booked solid today but give her more Pepcid, watch her, and if she throws up again to take her to Angell. Right now she's asleep on the couch. I'm trying to tempt her with food I know she likes and not to freak out because on top of this I have a final exam that I have to take this weekend.
