It's good you've not done much today, you need the rest! I hope sleepy means you sleep well tonight :)

I'm okay. I'm cat sitting for the parents though and they hate me :( No kitty cuddles for me!

Aubergine 15-04-2018 10:30 PM

I think I should sleep tonight. There have been nights of no sleep and lots and lots of drama and I am rather exhausted. Thank you. <3


Oh no. :( Got any dreamies to bribe them with?

Serendipity. 15-04-2018 10:38 PM

*squish* I'm not surprised you're exhausted! I hope you do have a restful night tonight.

I do but they haven't been too interested for some reason. I think there's some catnip treats somewhere, I might see if they work better :P

Aubergine 15-04-2018 10:44 PM

Thank you. :)


Ohh. :( Silly cats! My can is benig very interested in my laptop!

Pomegranate 15-04-2018 10:45 PM

Catnip seems to work on most cats! Although my cat seems to not be affected by them!

Sleep sounds good plan Aubergine :-)

Serendipity. 15-04-2018 10:45 PM

Hehe! How is he getting on? He is so, so cute, I am very jealous :P

Serendipity. 15-04-2018 10:46 PM

That is a shame for your cat Emma, it looks very enjoyable :P

Pomegranate 15-04-2018 10:50 PM

I agree. I’ve tried drops and the ground stuff and he just doesn’t care. Yet the silly animal is usually interested in my wine! He’s still with my friend atm cos I got back too late to go get him. It’s weird not having him here, he’s six months old today lol so a teenage kitty!

Aubergine 15-04-2018 10:58 PM

Cat is doing good. :) He's very cuddly, unless he's just woken up in the morning and is a bit wild and full of beans! He's amazing. :)


Aww teenage kitty! Get ready for strops. :P

nonperson 15-04-2018 11:21 PM

Hullo.

Serendipity. 15-04-2018 11:34 PM

Hey NP :) How's it going?

Aww cats are wonderful!

nonperson 15-04-2018 11:35 PM

Hi, it's going ok. Eaten too many tacos. How're you?

Cats are wonderful, mine's been very clingy tonight but he's disappeared off somewhere now.

Pomegranate 15-04-2018 11:45 PM

Hey NP :-)

nonperson 15-04-2018 11:50 PM

Hi Pomegranate. =)

I'm trying to remember the name of the catnip that my cat likes.... because he doesn't react to any other than this stuff... but I can't think...!

Pomegranate 15-04-2018 11:53 PM

Damn it! Let me know when you remember :-). Mine seems immune to most stuff lol

not_so_insig 15-04-2018 11:54 PM

Kong?

nonperson 16-04-2018 12:00 AM

It's called Bam!

Doesn't seem to be available anywhere though... Maybe it got banned. =P

Pomegranate 16-04-2018 12:11 AM

Damn it!

Aubergine 16-04-2018 01:01 AM

Why did I wake up? :(

Pomegranate 16-04-2018 01:09 AM

Boooooooo :-(.

Maybe do some body scanning or relaxation and try and sleep?

Aubergine 16-04-2018 01:36 AM

Thanks Emma. I tried a couple of Headspace things, but I'm a bit antsy. Probably because I've got work tomorrow and I was a bit of a loon last Friday. Managed to make it two months until the new lady was exposed! Though she sent me a really nice Facebook message that evening, so maybe it's ok. What a pickle. :wow:


Cat purrs so, so loudly. :)


How come you're awake?

Pomegranate 16-04-2018 01:46 AM

Think I’m still a little bit jet lagged. Plus I tend to need a good few hours of non peopling before I can sleep. Just forced myself to take some meds so will hopefully be asleep soonish. Have you tried the calm harm app? I’m glad the new lady was nice :-)

Buttons. 16-04-2018 01:49 AM

Hope everyone gets some sleep!

Ha ha Lillie in the morning I will get a picture of my new dog :) She's currently flat out by the door but wakes easily so don't want to risk a snap right now.

Aubergine 16-04-2018 02:10 AM

Well done on taking sleep meds. I hope you are asleep soon - will do you good to get a decent block of sleep, I expect. I know what you mean about needing non-people time before sleep.

I haven't tried that app, no. I use one called the Virtual Hope Box, which I like. Will have a look for the Calm Harm one. Might take some diazepam to calm the antsy and hopefully sleep more.


Popped some music on. Do you have plans for today?

Aubergine 16-04-2018 02:11 AM

Hey Buttons. :) Aww dog. :)

Buttons. 16-04-2018 05:03 AM

This is Molly guys:

Aubergine 16-04-2018 06:02 AM

Aww look at her! :)

chinahorse 16-04-2018 07:43 AM

Aww she is lovely!! And looks so cosy lol. She looks quite big! Is she trained and we'll behaved or a bit of a rascal?

Buttons. 16-04-2018 08:25 AM

She is quite big but I tried her with the wheelchair in the carpark before deciding so fingers crossed she should be okay. ha ha yeah she's definitely settled on my sofa and my bed :P apparently she was given up to the rescue centre as someone was allergic to her. She seems house trained *touch wood* although I have puppy pads just in case. The only issue is she won't eat, treats, normal food nothing. Am taking her to the vet to get checked over today though so if there's issues we can sort it.

chinahorse 16-04-2018 08:43 AM

Taking her to the vets is a good plan. What was she eating at the rescue centre? Could be she was too stressed though?
Ahhhhh im so jealous of you!! Love doggo so much!!

Buttons. 16-04-2018 09:25 AM

I got the same food as she had at the rescue centre but she won't eat it. Taking her vets at 11:30 they should know. Also going to sort out insurance etc while there. She's generally happy though, wagging and so on. Ha ha I win life :P

nonperson 16-04-2018 10:38 AM

What a beauty - love those ears! It might just be stress as to why she's not eating. She's had lots of changes to get used to! Do you know how long she was in the rehoming centre?

Pomegranate 16-04-2018 01:55 PM

Awwww what a cutie. How did you get on at vets?

not_so_insig 16-04-2018 02:01 PM

I am waiting for my parcel. I am already fed up of waiting. Hurry up amazon man!

not_so_insig 16-04-2018 03:15 PM

My parcel has arrived. It was only food flavouring as I plan to make cupcakes soon and I need it for them. Hopefully the cupcakes will be yummy as I haven't made the recipe before. I am having a tesco order tomorrow so fingers crossed that all the ingredients arrive!

nonperson 16-04-2018 04:14 PM

My parcel has also just arrived! Which is astounding as Amazon can't usually find my house. However when I opened it up (it's a kitchen compost bin) it has no lid!

Pomegranate 16-04-2018 04:41 PM

Parcels sound exciting. My post is all boring.

nonperson 16-04-2018 04:48 PM

I wouldn't call a compost bin exciting!

I went on a bit of a buying binge though, I'll have a couple more arriving this week. Equally unexciting though... a hat and some new work boots.

zombiehunter 16-04-2018 05:02 PM

*climbs in through the window of the thread*

Pomegranate 16-04-2018 05:05 PM

Hi zombie :-)

zombiehunter 16-04-2018 05:08 PM

*dusts self off* hello pomme de terre

Pomegranate 16-04-2018 05:28 PM

How’s your day gone/going?

zombiehunter 16-04-2018 05:31 PM

all good here thanks

and how the **** has your day been??

Buttons. 16-04-2018 05:47 PM

Hey all :) took Molly to the vets, they gave her anti sickness think she just has a bug.

not_so_insig 16-04-2018 06:15 PM

I have ordered Domino's!

zombiehunter 16-04-2018 06:24 PM

whats on the pizza?

not_so_insig 16-04-2018 06:24 PM

I went for the Roma pizza.

not_so_insig 16-04-2018 06:28 PM

Lol zombie. Actually I went for the hollyoaks deal because it was cheaper than buying the pizza alone.

Buttons. 16-04-2018 06:28 PM

Pizza sounds epic!

not_so_insig 16-04-2018 06:53 PM

I have had my order. Ate everything bar the pizza. Will save it either for tomorrow or later. Had to find Domino's guy because he went to the sheltered housing nearby.
