It’s been one helluva week here!
First the good news! – We sold our house. Contracts were signed so it’s all done except for the inspections, appraisals and moving. It can still go south but we are hopeful. It was only on the market for four days. We had seven showings and two offers. All good!
Now for the bad – Within hours of finalizing the agreement, our cat Morgan broke her leg. We have no idea how she did it. My best guess is that she attempted a jump, misjudged and landed wrong. It happened Thursday night. She limped Friday but I thought it was a soft tissue injury. Saturday she wouldn’t walk on it. I was lucky to get her in to see the vet early. She has a splint on it and must wear a cone. My cats don’t wear collars so she is very unhappy. I was hoping she would nap and take it easy but that’s not happening. She is such a good cat. She didn’t deserve this!
About that collar – The one the vet put on is hard plastic with three loops (also of hard plastic) that extend down. They seem to be bothering her. It’s not clear so it blocks her vision. I reached out and was able to get a recommendation for an easier to wear collar. Jeff Bezos has promised I’ll have it by Monday. He has always come through for my cats so fingers crossed he will again.
Notice anything? – If you are a regular reader you should have picked up that again my cats always have a crisis on weekends, holidays and now we can add pandemics. Maybe I should add “when in the middle of a house sale.”
Some thoughts on the week – Whenever I think we have passed some milestones and life will be easier, something else happens. We keep pushing through. There is no other choice but I am an emotional basket case! There are silver linings. I was grateful Morgan broke her leg after we had a sale. She is isolated in a room and anxious to get out. It would have been hard to show the home while she was like this. We would have had to take her with us. Also not ideal to keep jostling her around.
So how was your week? Hopefully less eventful!
