So, something is up with Stella's eye - she didn't feel well last night and was keeping it closed (and was very quiet which is unusual). Today she is acting like herself but her eye looks weird, like cloudy, so I am going to be calling the vet for an appointment. Keep your fingers and paws crossed it isn't a big deal - and hopefully not something contagious. This morning she seemed ok, but last night she was totally not herself - usually she can't resist playing blanket monster before bed (well, technically at bedtime, when I am trying to sleep) and she was not interested at all, and usually she wakes me up in the middle of the night by putting her paws on my face (she isn't good at the time thing and thinks it is time for breakfast) and she didn't do that either. Once she got going she was ok, and was chasing the boys like normal, so I thought she just had not felt good last night and it passed, but then I saw her eye - at first I thought it was the angle downstairs (it was reflecting back the light a lot but where she was it wasn't great lighting, so I couldn't really tell) but then upstairs in the better light it looked cloudy, and she totally had the laser thing going - which seems to me to indicate maybe the pupil isn't closing like it should. We shall see.
Called the vets office, her appointment is at 4 (cdt) so I am leaving at about 2:45 to go home, wrangle her and drive her up there.
And, so you know, I am visiting - my new technique is to go alphabetical - it seems to work well, but if you didn't see me yesterday that is partly why (if you are in a letter I didn't get to). I do skip around a little but try to stick to the order as much as possible - so today I start where I left off yesterday. I didn't do any visiting last night because I was watching Stella, and also I try not to spend too much time on the computer at night, so I am a little behind, and leaving to take Stella will get me more behind.
Oh, and if you haven't been, we did a little tribute to Yuu-Chan at The Naughty Kitty Club - a lot of people don't really know but he helped to inspire it. I tried to make it kind of a happy post to celebrate him - if you are a member (or even if not) you should check it out.
