Two videos today.

First, here's Roswell getting her diabetes shot. People didn't seem to believe me when I said it was her favorite time of day, but it is.



Secondly, my dad continues his Hunting With the Microscope and sends this video of some sort of multicellular something or other -- I'm sure someone here can identify it.



In other news, I've got most of the rewards sent out for the Drowning Girl kickstarter -- we're still waiting on the ones that also get a physical copy of the book as we don't have those yet, but people getting prints should (mostly) have them. There are about 15 envelopes here waiting to go out with tomorrow's post.

We're hunkered down in the chill today. Roswell is helping Trillian address Holiday cards, which is fun to watch.

Oh also, I have actually a little more time to add photos to War Paint -- so if you're in the area and have a tattoo related to your military service, drop me a line.

Happy Saturnalia.

I believed you about Roswell. My old cat and I would bond when I had to give him fluids.... although much of that was because I would wrap in towels fresh-warmed from the dryer.

It is definitely a good hunkering-down day.

Not only does Roswell come when you call her name, she also takes her shot voluntarily? What a great cat.

Boy she can run quite fast can't she...

It simultaneously makes me angry and makes me think it's cute that you pronounce it 'diabetus' O_o

that's cause the lolcats pronounce it that way & roswell's nothing if not a lolcat.

what does she get to make her so enthusiastic about it? (I'm just waiting on bloodtests to see whether my kitty is going to need daily meds, and am really concerned about how to get tablets into him without totally stressing him out, which is what used to happen before we found spot-on wormers...)

She gets a special diet meat-paste. They say "diet" but she's gained like 3 lbs on it.

I'd be laughing even harder if she'd managed to bowl you over from the sheer force of her momentum!

Can you please come over and worm my cat?

I'd much rather do the worming than the watching the worms come out the other end bit.

My cat is an expert at avoiding the worming tablet. And even when you think you've finally got it down her, and had her sitting on your lap for ten minutes stroking her neck, as soon as she is released she spits it out and runs off. :P

I'd take on that challenge.

my first attempt would be smashing the worming pill to powder with a hammer and stirring it in with something pasty and irresistible.
