Exactly. It's infuriating.

And slightly saddening at the same time, unfortunately.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 10:43 PM

It's just a scam to sell chocolate and flowers and shiz

I keep feeling sick on and off
And I was ready to go to bed at 8pm and now I'm wide awake!
Stupid troll body!

nonperson 14-02-2018 10:49 PM

Oh no not random sickness. =/ Have you eaten something dodgy?

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 10:50 PM

I don't think so!
It keeps coming and going.
I hate it because I'm terrified of being sick!!

nonperson 14-02-2018 10:51 PM

Is it an anxious thing instead?

Maybe laying down in bed and relaxing will help? And also remind your body that it is sleep time.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 10:56 PM

Might be!
The anxiety definitely does not help!

I think that is a wise suggestion!
Hopefully I'll be tired once I get into bed.

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 11:01 PM

Hope you feel better soon Beckie.

chinahorse 14-02-2018 11:03 PM

Hope you feel better beckie. Herbal teas especially ginger can help nausea if you've got any.

Cacoethes 14-02-2018 11:06 PM

Thanks guys :)

Im going to attempt sleep!
Night all

Pomegranate 14-02-2018 11:09 PM

Night night

chinahorse 14-02-2018 11:11 PM

Night. Hope you wake up feeling better.

nonperson 14-02-2018 11:12 PM

Night night.

*celebrates with aubergine*

Aubergine 15-02-2018 12:43 AM

Thanks Lillie! :D *pops champagne*

I've emailed about Charlie! Not saying that he is the one who the RSPCA will think is suitable, but he is lovely and he's been waiting a long time because he's special. I'd like to give a cat with difficulties a home. We can have difficulties together!

chinahorse 15-02-2018 12:48 AM


Giving an nimal a second chance is amazing. Would you not want to go and visit and meet some kitties first? Are there any local charities you've looked at also?

Aubergine 15-02-2018 01:01 AM

Yup, I'd visit some. I can only have an indoor cat, and there are none locally at the moment (as in my local branch). I've also looked at Cat's Protection, who have a local branch - I've known some friends adopt from there. :) I'd go visit whoever first, definitely. :)

chinahorse 15-02-2018 01:03 AM

Eek so you can fill your days off with cat hunting! And of course when you get the cute little one you then need to take loads of photos to show us.

Pomegranate 15-02-2018 01:04 AM

Omg! Yay! :-D

Pomegranate 15-02-2018 06:53 AM

Morning. Sooo sleepy ��

Buttons. 15-02-2018 08:05 AM

That's great about the cat :)

Morning Pomegranate, hope you've managed to wake up a bit :)
I just had like a few second power cut which would be fine except it's screwed up my Sky box -_- I NEED TV.

Pomegranate 15-02-2018 08:16 AM

Ah man! That sucks! A tiny bit lol but 6.30 is too early to be sociable and interact with work people!

Buttons. 15-02-2018 08:29 AM

I fixed it! All by myself despite being infamously bad with technology :P Proud :P

Ha ha I know that feeling. When I was studying nursing and on placement I had to crawl out of my flat in halls at about 5am just as my flatmates on other courses were crawling in after a heavy night out :P There isn't enough tea in the world :P

chinahorse 15-02-2018 09:00 AM

Yay for being able to fix it buttons!

Before 9am shouldn't exist. I need to get out of bed and start getting ready for work but I slept in my onesie and am super warm and toasty and just don't want to.

chinahorse 15-02-2018 09:33 AM

Do I HAVE to go to work? It's not like the population of my city will die from a lack of milkshake.

Pomegranate 15-02-2018 10:06 AM

You should call in sick :-p

Buttons. 15-02-2018 10:26 AM

Ha ha the great lack of milkshake crisis of 2018, I can see the headlines now :P

not_so_insig 15-02-2018 11:31 AM

Yay Ducky about the cat.

not_so_insig 15-02-2018 11:31 AM

Morning all btw

Eska 15-02-2018 11:41 AM

Morning Dawn :)

Aubergine that is super exciting! Good luck in your cat search!

Emma and Lillie, I hope your respective work is going ok. I'm in later , doing a 1-7pm shift. Happy days.

Cacoethes 15-02-2018 11:57 AM

Yay for cat!!!! :-D

Hope work is ok guys!

Pomegranate 15-02-2018 01:57 PM

I’m soooo tired! Had four and a half hours broken sleep.

Cacoethes 15-02-2018 02:24 PM

That's not good at all!
When do you get home?

Aubergine 15-02-2018 03:28 PM

Thanks everyone for the cat well wishes! :-) Currently browsing Amazon for cat related things to get the flat ready for whatever new arrival I may be able to have here. :-)

How are you all?

nonperson 15-02-2018 03:33 PM

You definitely need a massive climbing tower

I think this is the one I have, but didn't pay that much for it... o.o

Aubergine 15-02-2018 03:35 PM

That is AMAZING! :D

nonperson 15-02-2018 03:37 PM

You need one, honestly. It's the best thing I've ever got for a cat. Especially if they're indoors only, they want to climb!

I'm currently pinned down by a sleeping cat... but I kinda want to be up doing stuff.

Aubergine 15-02-2018 03:37 PM



Aubergine 15-02-2018 03:39 PM

Aww sleeping cat. :) How is he?

nonperson 15-02-2018 03:41 PM

Looks good. Got all the things a cat needs. Can't see how tall it is though. The taller the better in my opinion. =P

nonperson 15-02-2018 03:41 PM

He's fine. Bit more whiny today so I think he's a bit sore. And he was hiding under the bed for no reason earlier. =/

Pomegranate 15-02-2018 03:57 PM

I have that cat tower person!

nonperson 15-02-2018 03:58 PM

Awesome! Good choice. ;-)

Cacoethes 15-02-2018 04:00 PM

Cat stuff looks very exciting!!

Only 11 mins left on the train.
Just watched a film called 47 metres down.
I love shark movies and sharks in general, but I have to admit, a lot of shark movies are a bit crap!

Aubergine 15-02-2018 04:12 PM

Now I will have that cat tower too! Haha! But in grey, not paw prints. :D

Also got: Bed, igloo, a few toys, litter tray, water/food bowls... What else do I need? Won't get food until I know what they'll eat. Same with litter? Or will any litter be acceptable? Only had outdoor cats before!

Hey Beckie! :D

Pomegranate 15-02-2018 04:12 PM

Most shark movies are crap. Have you ever been scuba diving Beckie?

I’m also on the train, finally. CC wants me to come and see her at 4.30 so going straight from work and going to hang round town for a bit.

Pomegranate 15-02-2018 04:13 PM

Awwww you’re on it Aubergine! Sounds good although my cat has never once slept in his bed!

Aubergine 15-02-2018 04:16 PM

No, my Dad's cat has never slept in hers either! Though sometimes does. I want the cat to have options. :D Also, sometimes I feel like hiding in an igloo, so I figure the cat will too, especially to start with. How is your cat?

I hope it goes OK with your CC. Much to do in town?

I have work tomorrow. Doom.

nonperson 15-02-2018 04:22 PM

Any litter is acceptable, I think. If it's different to what they're used to they'll figure out pretty quickly what it's for! You need a scratching post too. Or... a flat cardboard one as you'll have the sisal ones on the cat tower.

You also need Dreamies - cheese flavour.
