Daffodil’s protest

Ever since her two consecutive escapes, Daffodil has been on protest-mode.

Yesterday, husband decided to wire-net the front grille all the way to the top. Daffodil watched him as he went in and out of the the storeroom with all the paraphernalia.

But then before he could get started, our printer got jammed and I needed it fixed. So, the wire-net project had to be put on hold.

Daffodil was very confused. She knew all about the wire-net project (any cat would be able to figure that out), but why and how did the printer get into the picture?

That was certainly confusing for her.

So, she continued watching, and watching….until she got tired and went upstairs to sleep.

By the time she woke up, which was hours later, the printer was fixed and so was the wire-netting on the front grille!

But Daffodil didn’t know so when we were about to go out, she made a bee-line for the front door only to be met with the wire-netting all the way up to the top!

She was clearly quite unhappy.

She then sent Ginger to go scratch on the wire-netting, but it’s been fortified, so the wire-netting stayed intact (for now).

Madame is not happy.

As for her tumour, it’s “just there”. Once in a while it bleeds, but we are managing it. She gets her Bioresis and papase enzyme daily. The sodium bicarbonate+molasses paste does help keep it under control. It’s a lot flatter than what it used to be, though it’s still there.

But Daffodil has set up a routine that whenever she takes her medicines or gets her tumour cleaned, she demands for a fish-flavoured meal. It’s a routine. Right after being force-fed her meds or after a cleaning session on the kitchen island, she goes right to the food bowl and wait. It doesn’t matter whether she has just eaten or not. She demands for a reward right after that.

Even Vincent has learnt this routine now. He too demands for a reward whenever he gets his mouth sprayed with Biosilver. Vincent’s stomatitis acts up every now and then. I’m using the Biosilver spray to (hopefully) control it.

Life is not perfect. We just have to manage as best we can.
