Something I never dreamed of having to deal with

Everyone has something that they never dreamed that they would have to deal with. For the past few weeks I have been dealing with one of these instances. I have been dealing with cat zits. That's right people, I have a zitty kitty with feline acne.

YES, cats can get pimples. Who knew? I certainly didn't. There is no general cat literature that says "Oh by the way, you may have to pop your cats zits."

It started out with an overwhelming amount of black flakey dandruff on an her chin. The vet said to just keep combing it out with a flea comb and keep an eye on it. I read up on it on the web and began following some of the more natural suggestions. Then the day came when one exploded, and things came out that even freaked me out. Know this, I am the person in the movie theatre that laughs hysterically when gross things happen on the screen. But what came out of my cat's face that day, made me shudder, and not in a good way.

So, off to the vet's we went. We did a round of oral antibiotics and topical, because it has gone beyond just acne and into the realm of folliculitis (infected hair follicles). I thought that they were going away, but they seem to be coming back again. Witch Hazel has helped a lot, but not enough. I mistakenly put tea tree on the worst of them one day, before I new it was bad for kitties, and what do you know - it cleared up and is the one that hasn't come back. Great, the one thing that worked, and it is bad for cats.

So here I am, dealing with blackheads and whiteheads on my cat's chin. The blackheads aren't bad. It is the nastiness and hard white rocks that come out of the others that is really gross. Oh, and did I mention that the area has lost most of it's fur. Greeaaatt.

So that's what I have been up to. Fun huh?

Back from Fanaticon. This was an extremely well done CON. Highly recomend for next year. A lot if things are going on and waiting to hear back about some writing gigs. Trying to figure out Wordpress. Still dealing with a zitty kitty. Broke beyond belief. Tired and exhausted today.

So behind

I have fifteen million things to do and I am so behind on my blogging. This is coming in low on the prioity poll. I decided to take a minute to jot down a could of words. I working on a article review for Geeks Dream Girl in hopes of being hired on by them as a writer. Thus my book reviews have been nonexistent. My computer was down for several days as the fan blew out and in order not to fry the hard drive I had to leave it off and work off another computer. (Hated it, as I love my War Horse)
Also started another project,but will not discuss it. But will say that my periodic lapses in writing actually hwlp it. Okay back to work.
