The aftetnoon nap didn’t go as planned. Slept through the alarms enough to turn them all off. Turned into an 8 hour regular sleep. Will prob stay up till 3 or 4am and head back to bed. Do want to get some shopping done tomorrow because Monday is a holiday and nothing is open.
Gave my cat his sub-q fluids shortly after waking up. Did it alone this time because the roomate is still sleeping. It went pretty well and I think he got at least 100ml in him before getting agitated being on the kitchen counter.
Going to rest on the couch in silence for a little bit after making some coffee. Then get around to unpacking more things.

So I’m bascially giving my cat an antacid on top of an ulcer med. Only in liquid form. The fluids are just so that he doesn’t get dehyrdrated, plus potassium.
Phone calls made (quote for tenant insurance, landlord picking up the rent), still need to put cash on the visa but I’ll let that go until Tuesday. Also got my bus pass renewed for next month.
Just wanted to get done with all the adult stuff this morning. It’s not hard, just that priorities change and financial stuff needs to be dealt with. Leaves the weekend free to actually unpack and go shopping for myself this time.
Off to bed soon. Still need to medicate the cat. It’s human meds but in feline amounts, so they gave me a small dropper. Luckily it’s only two things and they are liquid. It’s ridiculously hard to give pets pills.
Will have one more glass of wine shortly, after getting meds into oldman cat.
He’s found his comfy spot.
Going to have to get into some kind of routine for my cats fluids and meds. Figure meds before bed after he’s eaten. Mainly because he’s use to getting fed as soon as I get home. Will give him 3 to 4 hours for it to settle. Fluids at night. It only takes about 5 mins. This week it’s every day. After that it’s every 2 days. It’s actually pretty easy to do. Just need to make sure he’s comfortable while the iv goes for a few mins.
Thankful that he’s feeling better. Been doing some reading on ckd in felines. It puts one at ease to know what is expected and how to manage it.
