happy valencat's day

the daniel kitten is asleep on the living room floor (mommy gave up on putting him down for a nap months ago and lets him sleep where he falls) and i jumped up on the kitchen chair next to mommy, demanding that we update my blog.

the daniel kitten was diagnosed with autism at the beginning of january so mommy has been running around like she was chasing her tail trying to handle all the doctors' appointments, psychologist appointments, appointments with the school district (he turns 3 in april and they have to work on his preschool plans), training in aba methods for teaching the daniel kitten basic skills, as well as the normal therapy appointments.

additionally, she has had a cough for 3 months and the stupid doctor could not tell her what was wrong. he put her on 10 days of antibiotics that made her tummy sick. she finally got some relief from a friend's suggestion that she take a spoonful of honey when she starts having the coughing spasms. it seems to be working. in the meantime, she has had to sleep in the recliner in the living room and i've come and snuggled with her every night.

even though we are now in northern california, we don't have any of that annoying white stuff -- just rain and according to the lady on tv, we have not received enough of it. i am an indoor panther so i do not worry about having to go outside and getting wet when we have it.
