Last week was a revelation. On Monday I came home from work at 12.00 and there was NO ONE home! (sorry Freddy, not to discount your lovely cattliness, but I mean, no humanspresent). It was strange, being in the house without Maarten because he has been a consistent presence at home since that fateful day June 4th. Except for the days he was in the hospital, he has barely gone out on his own.
Monday morning he had a meeting. Then Monday evening he had a presentation. Wow! It took a few days for him to physically recover and has been fighting off a cold all week, but…WOW! It almost feels (dare I say it!) Normal!
Friday was another big day. Maarten had his CT scan, of which we will hear the results on Friday September 19th. Then we went and had the pleasure of picking up Pebbels, our new Kitten. She’s Adorable and is as taken with us as we are taken with her. She needs a bit more time to adjust to Freddy and he is very curious about her. But right now they are in the ‘Polite Ignorance’ phase. It’s very entertaining.
Every day she gets more comfortable and more curious (=Trouble). Anyone lacking inspiration and creativity in their life just needs to get a new kitten or puppy.. Their sense of wonder and curiosity is so much fun to watch! And she has given us something positive to focus on. There has been a lot of joy and laughter in our house this weekend. Not to forget Fred (or Fatty katty, as I lovingly refer to him). He has been a steady comfort to Maarten while lying on the couch in his weakened state, lying there with him and just being his lovely fur ball self; equal parts crazy and loving. Funny how two cat-allergic people can live with two cats!
Next up: Next steps and test results Friday!
