|||||Roswell reminding me that i'ts almost diabetes time||]|
Roswell is putting the ete back in Diabetes.
She went back to the vet on Monday and her blood sugar is ... now completely normal, which means we have her under control. She'd also gained a pound and a half on her new super-tasty-makes-life-worth-living special diabetes food. When you say her name now she's like a silkworm missile on a string -- she zooms out in to the front room from wherever she is in the house in a flash, then she sees you're not there, so she tears back and runs a circle around you, then races back out into the front room. Giving her a shot twice a day is about as difficult as giving away beer to frat boys.

In other news, once again unsatisfied with my choices for city council I wrote in Roswell, which in and of itself is not unusual, but then all night I was stumbling across people's Facebook pages, and blog posts and tweets sayin "I voted for Roswell for city council". So we may need to check the numbers closely today to make sure nothing fishy wasn't going on. (Roswell winning would begin the fishy years in Philly's political history with fish being constantly brought up at city council, as well as plans to bring more birds and seaweed to the city. We might get little else done.)
There's one weekend left (thursday - saturday) to see trillian_stars in Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead at Curio Theatre. I haven't been plugging it much because every show has been sold out, and these last shows will sell out too with or without me mentioning it, it's just that there may be more of our friends there -- so get your tickets on line and get them ... now Curio Theatre.
And disaster begets opportunity -- both of comic book artist Michael Zulli's beloved dogs had to have emergency surgery this week which means he's doing two commissions read about how you may have your own Michael Zulli portrait, of yourselves, or maybe of Swamp Thing squeezing the life out of Donald Trump's hair monster hanging over your mantlepiece, here.
I'm going to be in Quantico Virginia next weekend working on War Paint so if your uncle owns a tattoo shop down there, put me in touch.
That's about all from Cloud City. Do something awesome today.

Roswell RULES!!! I love that middle picture of her :) Such a great expression! And, I totally hope she makes history and WINS!
I'm so glad Roswell is feeling better and enjoying her meat paste. Your photos of her bring me a lot of joy, and always make me cuddle my own kitty.
I really wish I could afford a Zulli commission.
I live near Quantico! I have a friend who is a tattoo artist: Lea, at Bethesda Tatto
. That's not in Quantico, though, and I don't know if that would work for War Paint.
Go, Roswell! Yay for healthy-as-possible kitty!
Also, go Roswell the political candidate! I can't imagine she'd do a worse job than some of the human beings running. I say this not knowing anything about the human candidates in your city council elections, but based on politicians in general. Cats are a much more pleasant species than politicians.
Go kitty! It's so great when they really respond well to meds.
I am in love with that second shot of Roswell!
Wow, a cat who is easy to medicate. Roswell truly is awesome.
I love that second pic, too. Such a cheeky expression. :D
Go Roswell for city council! :D
OMG that is SUCH a darling kitty! Aww! They are all adorable but that top portrait is just priceless.
i'll tell you what... i love my cats as much as if i'd given birth to them myself, but roswell has the best facial expressions of any kitty ever. i love your roswell photos so much.
congrats on getting her sugars under control so quickly, you guys are awesome kitty parents!
I'm so glad to hear that Roswell is feeling better. And she looks just as photogenic as ever!
Good job to you and Trillian and Roswell! Max feels the same way about his dental mediation, when he's on it. I think some cats just know when something is good for them.
Mr. Hugs had to take this stuff for some reason, they mixed the medicine in with pureed fish and put it in a tube and the vet was like "put on gloves, one of you pry his mouth open, the other scrape it onto the roof of his mouth with a tongue depressor...' and it went on like this for weeks before we figured out he LOVED the stuff, we just fed it to him out of the tube after that. "Mr. Hugs! Fish paste!" and he'd come running.
My tuxedo kitty, Delphine, feels the same way about Petromalt hairball gel and Enisyl-F L-Lysine paste. All I have to do is squirt either one on top of her food (or alone on a plate, for that matter) and she hoovers it right up. This is very fortunate because trying to force medicine down her throat is EXCEEDINGLY unpleasant for all involved....
