🐾Paw hugs!!!🐾

Hello my lovely friends! Now it feels to me like I’ve been gone for soooo long. The time while sick with the flu seems kind of hazy looking back. I’m thankfully much better by now. It was on Sunday that I noticed that I felt pretty normal, except for still feeling overly tired and weak. Today I can really say that I don’t feel any flu symptoms anymore, but still, the weakness and tiredness kind of lingers. It kind of goes away during the day for a while and then comes back. Oh well, it’s normal anyway and I’m sure will still last the rest of the week at least. I’m definitely not overdoing anything. Just so happy I don’t feel so sick anymore.

The photos above are from the 12th of March, late at night lol. Murli would paw hug everything I gave her lol. At first she just pawed after the string, then she wanted the whole fluffy ball I made her, paw hugging it in the end. The fluffy ball is at the end of that string in the photos.

Wow I saw the photos of the snow the North East of the US got, and I’m sure Canada got some of it as well? I just hope it’s not too bad for all of you! I hope you’re all comfy and warm at home and dont have to go out since the streets must be pawful.

😺Purrs and more paw hugs from Murli, and we’re sending love to all of you! ❤️️❤️️❤️️

March 7, 2017 Murli stressed out by noisy road work

Hello my dear furends! I haven’t really slept this night either, even though I feel better today. At least compared to how sick I felt over the weekend.

Anyway, this morning we suddenly had a construction site right in front and around one corner of our apartment building. They are apparently starting to renew the pavement. So they use a jack-hammer to get the old stuff out. OMG, it’s so loud! The whole house was vibrating and the noise was resonating through everything.

Here is what it sounds like with the window closed:

Here is what it sounds like directly in the street. Even though I filmed this in the later afternoon and at that point they were already around the corner, which made it slightly less loud. It was worse before. It was already 3:30pm when they went around the corner. The jack-hammer was being used non stop from 8am until 5pm, except for one hour during their lunch break at noon.

Poor Murli was so afraid, she didn’t even knew what to do anymore. She ran through the whole apartment with a bushy tail, again and again, seemingly not feeling comfortable to stay anywhere. Even though she has numerous hiding spots, they weren’t enough for her this morning. I think it’s the intense vibrations that make it worse. Cats have much more sensitive nerves in their paws than we do. It’s so they can feel the smallest little movement, like a mouse walking. Their hearing of course is also much more sensitive. They especially dislike noises in the deeper spectrum. I’m sure that she heard a lot more that we couldn’t hear. I’m sure she isn’t just feeling these vibrations much more intensely, but I can imagine that’s accompanied by an additional noise as well. She never heard a jack-hammer so close by.

Even though  I was worried about Murli, and my heart was aching seeing her scared like that, I tried to not show my worry and did everything just like usual. Because if she sees me acting different, it would just add to her fears. If she sees me behaving like all the time, she realizes that the situation in our home itself is safe and nothing is wrong. Murli always notices when I become nervous or afraid, which causes her to feel on edge as well.

She didn’t leave my side at all the whole day. We are already always together, but today much more so. She stayed close to me. Then I saw her sitting underneath the drying rack, which had a big blanket on top. Then I got the idea that I get one of her boxes, and put it under that thing.

This is the box under the drying rack, before I put the big blanket over it, so it was like a tent around her box.

I also put one of her beloved Valerian root pouches into the box for her, because it seems to calm her somewhat. This was shortly after Murli got into her box. The little Valerian root pouch is between her front paws. I sat right there with her. First at the desk. But then I sat down on the floor, in front of the drying rack, with my coffee and iPad. We stayed like this until noon, when I used the quiet of the construction workers lunch break to get into bed for a nap. Murli went right after me and jumped into bed as well.

I always take her blankies into bed with us for her to cuddle on:

I took this photo when I got up again. Murli was able to rest at least, despite the noise. I didn’t really sleep either, but I needed the rest anyway. Btw, when we sleep like that, she likes to curl right into the back of my knees. My legs were bent around her back. She always tries to curl herself as close as possible to me. It’s so cute.

She even stayed in bed after I got up. But not for long. Thankfully, at 5pm, the jack-hammer finally stopped. After Murli ate, she got into bed again. Since then she sleeps, which is no wonder. I feel quite sleepy myself lol. Probably because the sleepless night and the flu.

So hopefully I’ll finally sleep normally tonight. Hugs & love to all, from both of us❤️️

March 5, 2017 Fluweekend

It’s almost 3pm now, and my fever is gone for now, so I feel much better. Lol, now I can also see what I’m typing without the letters being some strange kind of fuzziness. Murli and I got up from a long nap before. I didn’t get much sleep this night, because of alternating between fever dreams and lying awake without finding a comfortable position as everything hurt. That’s all a lot better for now.

I’ve generally been feeling really well the whole week, aside from migraines. No anxiety, no above normal pain issues, no fatigue issues, nothing, except the migraine, but as long as I have my Triptan, I can deal with them. And then I had to get the flu lol. So many friends (online and offline) were sick with the flu or worse (sinusitis, tonsillitis, full blown influenca, pneumonia and bronchitis), and I hope all of you are feeling much better!

The weather is still kina unstable. It varies between sunny and warm spring weather and stormy, cloudy and cool weather. There was a slight stormy wind going on over night, but nothing serious. The winds were between 30 kph and 25 kph (18 mph – 15 mph).

Yesterday morning, it was very much like spring, and Murli enjoyed “kitty TV” on the “IRL bird channel” at the window. Those little sparrows are especially active right now and they’re so adorable. Murli really enjoyed the sun too as you can see:

Later in the afternoon, I had to get a few groceries, despite feeling very dizzy and sick, but Papa was even worse and I wouldnt let him go out like that. So I went, and the wind was blowing even worse than later over night, with 40 kph – 45 kph  (24 mph – 27 mph). So dizzy me had trouble walking against the wind direction lol. But I couldn’t help but take photos of the sky as I went over a bridge (the rivers water levels are still quite low):

And since I was grocery shopping, I thought I show you all my shopping bag cart thingy. Since I’m a sane catlady (just crazy in the eyes of non cat-people probably) I have lots of cat themed things:

Me just luvz stuff like that MOL! And its pawsome for getting groceries and stuff, as I can’t really carry to much due to my joint and back problems. It’s Murli approved too! She rubbes her fluffy little head into the shopping cart all the time 😺💕

Hugs & love to all of you furends😺💕 Murli and I wish you all a comfy Sunday!
