She was being really smoochy and purry today and when I left to do the other cats she actually came down to the door (She's always just sat on one of the shelves before) and SPOKE at me!

In the 5 weeks or so I've been there this is the first time I've ever heard her miaow.

If she is still there when this lease runs out she is SO mine.

It would be awesome if it turned out that she and Phantom got along. Two gorgeous tortishells together!! *squees*

She is such a cutie!

She just sits around most of the day - she doesn't make a mess, I've never heard her speak. But she is the biggest smoodgy cat I have ever come across.

She really makes me tempted to enquire about the rules for having a cat in this complex then running it by the housemates.

Then I would have a tortie at both houses!

Thing is I'd have to think long and hard about the cost and the suitableness of the house. The laundry would definetly need cleaning up before I got a cat in, there's no room for a litter tray at all at the moment.

She really is a gorgeous cat...

Billy has been adopted! He was there this week but he probably won't be next week.

For most cats I'd be all "yay! they got a home!" But Billy is my favourite and I want him!
Ah well, I hope he's going to a great family that appreciates him. I'll just have to fawn over Jeri now.

Today was poo day. For some reason 4 cats weren't given litter trays yesterday. }:-\ So of course that led to lots of cleaning poo and urine off bedding and floors. Then two cats that DID have trays didn't use them and pooped and peed in the bedding instead! *rolls eyes* Went through a lot of disposable gloves today!

There were 4 people in the cattery however, so we were done really quickly. Most of us spent about half an hour just visiting or favourite cats and playing with them a while because we finished early.

Can't wait for my beads and findings to arrive. *bounce*

Ya know, I REALLY should do shit. I have a lot I need to do like job searching and lab report, but I'm being awfully slack lately.

I am intending to visit the northern end of Herdsman a little later.

I was pretty much the only person in the cattery this morning. I did have someone else in there doing kittens for a while but most of the time I was on my own and had to do ALL the adult cats. *collapses from exhaustion*

It included dealing with two cats who decided some bedding made a better toilet than a litter tray. Even with gloves on it's still awfully unpleasant picking the shit up. Another cat managed to get the tray at least, but there was one sticky pile of poop that needed hand removal and bloody gallons of urine. I let one of the vets know so they could check it out.

Billy was absolutely gorgeous as always. He has such piercing pale green eyes and he just stares at me when I do the cats beside him in that "C'mon, when am I gonna get some attention?" look. He's just too beautiful. And Zoleka did get a clip. She looks bizarre now but she seems to be a lot less timid now, the mats in her fur were probably bugging her a lot and now they're gone. :)

Then headed to uni. Took a wander to the Murdoch swamp first off to look for birds. I heard a bunch but only saw one New Holland Honeyeater - big woop. The swamp was teeming with different coloured dragonflies (many mating), 2 menacing looking hornets, a grass skink and I'm sure there were at least 10 oblong tortoises down there. They were sunning on branches - some you wouldn't think a tortoise would be agile enough to clamber onto. When they heard me they dropped into the water with a *plonk*.

Then I did my plates. I picked out maybe 5 decent plates out of the 16 I poured. Stupid agar. And apparently my suspension which was meant to be mixed at room temperature for an hour was left all weekend. This wouldn't have been a problem except somehow the bath got turned on and rose to 60 degrees! I'll see what I get but I figure most of whatever was in will be dead now, grr.

Now I am home and exhausted and will be heading to my parents for dinner soon. But now, a shower.

Mmm, shower.





take the antisocial test.


and go to mewing.net. because laura's feeling social.






No shit. Sometimes I like to be around people, but a lot of the time they just piss me off and I'd like to be wondering somewhere alone and one with nature.

Guy in a truck today decided he was exempt from indicating or checking to see if the lane was clear before changing into it, causing me to brake heavily and almost have a car up my ass. Lovely.

Brrrr )

RSPCA again today. Seemed like the work got done really quick today. My pink shirt - now christened as my RSPCA shirt has even more white spots on it now. But I don't have as much of a bleach headache today.

It's amazing, you go in in the morning and all the cats are at the doors miaowing away, and one by one they shut up as you get their pens cleaned and - most importantly - feed them. They are only fed in the mornings which I find a little weird but they are on maintainence diet, I guess they only get as much as they need because they can't afford to feed them loads and chuck out most of it. They gobble the food as soon it's put down, then wash themselves, then curl up to sleep - well, most of them anyway.

Perry is a pretty tabby with a white underside, he's gorgeous, I'd take him home. Then there's Jeri the tortie who I didn't get to pat today because I didn't do her pen, who I am in love with as well. And of course there is Billy, a 3 year old ginger tabby. He is SUCH a smooch! I put his food down, showed it to him but he wasn't interested. All he wanted to do get attention. He'd reach up my leg and look at me in a "don't go!! Pat me!!" kinda way so I had to give him pats and scritches for a while until eventually I HAD to keep moving and do the other cats. Once he realised he'd get no more attention he ate.

Man as soon as the lease runs out here I am SOOOO looking for a cat friendly house.

Started at RSPCA today.

Bleach gives you headaches and makes you dizzy.

My pink shirt now has bleached spots all over it, ah well.

The kitties are extremely cute as usual. There was a torti called Jeri and a ginger named Billy who were the most beautiful smoodgy kitties. If I had the right house I would sooo adopt them.

Now I must get lunch and wash all this crap off me.
