Tuesday, night my cat, Floyd, decided that he was going to get into a fight with another cat through the closed window. He was hissing and growling and making a lot of racket and banging in the blinds. I grabbed him and as you no doubt can guess, he bit. It HURT. I went to the doctor the next day, got antibiotics and antibacterial cream and started the course.

Long story short, on Thursday (ANZAC Day in Australia - and New Zealand - which is a public holiday celebrating our veterans and remembering those who have fallen), instead of going to the RSL for two-up and drinking, I ended up in hospital with IV antibiotics. NOT. FUN.

My hand had swollen up and was red and inflamed, it hurt to move it. So after two nights and three days in hospital, I am now at home with a thoroughly non-apologetic feline a number of holes in my arm (from trying to find a vein for the cannula), more antibiotics and a bandaid over the puncture site. I also have strict instructions to return to hospital if the swelling recurs. This is not a problem for me because 1. I live across the road from the hospital and walked there in the first instance and 2. NOT. STUPID.

So am off work for the next week (probably) and need to keep my hand elevated.

Bloody cat.

Yep. I've been pondering this for a while now and have come to the conclusion. It's time.

For an X-Files rewatch.

I may be gone for a while...
