It's been nearly two weeks since I last wrote - two weeks of getting settled in to my new house. Nothing too new or exciting has happened, just unpacking, organizing, decorating, and acquiring the minimum amount of furniture needed to live. The spare bedroom and dining room are still empty, and most of the living room 'furniture' consists of cheap camping chairs, but that's fine by me.
Charlie is starting to resemble a linebacker: no neck!
Charlie got sick this past week. As I'm sure most of you know, Charlie is quite a vocal cat, and well.... she lost her voice. Yep, as humans can lose their voice when they get sick, so can cats. We don't normally notice because most cats don't carry on non-stop conversations with their humans. However, it was pretty obvious with Charlie. Additionally, she had a low-grade fever, was lethargic, and wasn't eating. Luckily, she perked up pretty quickly with antibiotics, and she seems to be feeling better - even though her voice isn't quite back to normal yet.
The trouble with having rugs on the wall is that sometimes Chappie climbs up them...
