Adorable, Wasn't He?

Dear Lizzy and Political Cat:

I'm going to be hanging around here more often in the next few weeks and trying to avoid the political blogs (if I can!) to cut down on anxiety.

I'm scheduled to have two cataract surgeries in November and am having to go through all the prep work before the surgeries. I've got calming music on (check it out if you haven't heard of it. - you can program the kinds of music you like and they'll stream it to you, giving you the option to give each song a thumbs up or down or the option of not playing the song for a month to take a break from it if you're getting tired of it.

So I'll be trying to stay close to Lizzy's 922 cats and PoliticalCat's offerings as well as 4Legs. You guys cheer me up and lately the others have been creating a lot of anxiety for me.

The end result (I hope!) will be bi-focal implants that will enable me to see without glasses for the first time since I was in first or second grade.

If you know anything comforting about friends of yours who've had the surgery, I'd like to hear it.

Oh, Sandy - You will be so much in my prayers! I have huge vision problems, so I totally empathize! I also have a good friend who was legally blind and cataract surgery was hugely successful for her - work on the anti-anxiety stuff - we'll do the political worrying for you for the duration! I SO love to see your comments, Love you! L.

Oh, dear. I was going to ask for Anthea's story, but I suspect it'll be heartbreaking, so let's leave it till after dear Sandy's had her surgery. Sandy, in your honour, I will post only pleasant things for you. Just search by Sandy on my blog (I'll create the tag today). I'm an atheist, so I can't pray for you, but I believe good thoughts create good energies. I send you many. I'm off to research what I can about the cataract surgery. Stay calm. I hug you and Lizzy both. What lovely people you are, in a world that can sometimes be quite revolting! Nose kisses to all the little furblessings.

You guys are great! Thanks for the encouragement. I do have some lovely friends here in L.A. who are helping, too. But I'm hooked on the internet and it will be good to come here for refreshment. I check out Jeffraham's blog and NTodd's, too.

Thanks again for your loving thoughts!

Hi, Sandy - It was nice to see your name pop up just now! I also peek in at Curly and LarryElvis at least once a day, and Maddie and Ripley, of course, and now Katamari - have you seen her amazing tiny self? (Seriously smaller than Cloud!) Even more sweet eye-candy at
Also: Do you take eye vitamins?

Eye vitamins? Seriously? I take a multivitamin and Flaxseed Oil capsules. If there's something else I should be considering, clue me in -- thanks!

I just went to visit Katamari's website -- she's adorable (and so tiny!)

Here's my responding contribution -- have you ever read the "Norton" books by Peter Gaithers? This is a quote from a scottish fold website:

"Norton" is "The Cat who went to Paris" and later lived abroad. Both of these books by Peter Gethers are about his life with a Scottish Fold by his side. A Scottish Fold that melted the heart of this once cat-hating author. Both books are a must for all Scottish Fold fanciers who like to read. Norton is undeniably one of Scottish Fold-dom's most memorable ambassadors.

P.S. re Norton:

People Magazine had several features on Norton over the years, including one about his death a few years ago. I mourned his passing. I loved those books and gave them as Christmas presents to some of my cat-loving friends.
