Riely is under the weather...it's his own fault. He picked a fight with a barn cat and this is what he gets. I told him when he did it he's gonna get sick and he can't do that kind of stuff! It makes him look all mangy and scruffy. Now we can't go getting that type of reputation for Ri Ri is a prim and proper cat (ha ha ha) . I took him to a horse vet today (they are going to start doing small animals...). The price was right and it was in-and-out burgers. Riely seemed to like it better than the other vets I've taken him too as well..so that's a good thing!
The picture of him is after a long day today...he went to work with me at Heavenhill and then also went over to Lana's for a little visit. Now home and 'resting' on the sofa.
He had a 102 fever and his right eye is squinty because of the abscess and his nose is completely swollen..you can see it better with a profile shot. The poor kitty! But he is doing really well and still has an appetite.
I've been checking out Lowe's clearance racks in the garden department. It has been so much fun to buy plants that are 75% off!! I've made two trips so far and I'm enjoying spending some time figuring out how to make the front yard more oohh lalala instead of blah blah blah. I plan on making the whole grassy area in front of the house filled with shrubs/flowers/etc with meandering walking paths, sculpture, and seating... Perennials are my best friend and I am looking for shrubs that are low maintenance....so anywho, I am having some fun this fall..what a great time for deals and to spend time outside when it's not so blazing hot and humid.
I am holding off on going all out crazy since I am still needing to have the siding taken off the front of the house and painted. I do not want to plant things and then have painters ruin everything....so I am starting where I am hoping my little friends will not be disturbed.
I think they stole Farmer's creation!! He does this all the time with Riely...here is the video of Farmer and Riely playing the piano (pretend of course...)...my camera didn't have sound so you'll have to play your own musica.
And here is a still photo of them playing the piano...Riely misses Farmer dearly!!
