I just Skyped Nefer. She's sitting on the windowsill looking out, and turned around to look at the computer, then dismissed it and went back to looking out the windows. Cat's got priorities.

2/2/16 09:45 pm - HELLO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SKYPE MY CAT?

Because we are nerds, we set up Toby's old laptop in the spare bedroom and got Nefer a Skype account and set it to auto-answer so we could talk to her during the day. It's set to only answer calls on the contact list, so if you would like to Skype the cat, put your Skype info in the comments below (comments are screened) and I'll add you tomorrow during the day.

Because we have to leave the laptop on and awake for the calls to auto-answer, we'll shut it down during the night and whenever we don't want it to answer. I assume you could leave her a message.

We were worried that Nefer wasn't eating--we had to pick her up a day early from the place that did the I-131 injection because she wasn't eating there, and when we went in for our allotted 20 minutes per person per day, she'd eat when we hand-fed her.

And then Toby realized, well, duh, we have a spy camera. So we set it up in there. Read more...Collapse )

Livejournal, why are you not letting me reply to comments over there? You are complaining my login cookie has been lost when I try to reply, and yet I am logged in and you are showing me locked posts on my f-list?!

This giraffe calf wouldn't be caught dead with someone with your fashion sense.

1/29/16 06:14 pm - Nefer

The currently-radioactive Nefer is safely locked n the spare bedroom with child safety locks on the door handles so that Sora can't let her out. He did so yesterday afternoon, before Toby was able to put the locks in, when we thought we'd safely barricaded the door with a box of hand weights that weighed more than he did. More fool we, as I discovered when Nefer strolled out to check the food bowls.

She yowled quite a lot this morning, starting about 4 or 5 am, and has done so on and off today. I spent half of my allotted daily 20 minutes with her this afternoon when she'd stopped, because I don't want her to associate yowling with getting my presence.

I also just spent a few minutes sticking a feather toy under the door in an attempt to play with her, but she just meowed at me. I gave up when the meows indicated she'd gone elsewhere in the room, but I'll do it again later, as I figure some interaction is better than none, even if there's a door in the way.

Still exhausted, but could not sleep. Ah well.

Nefer is now back home: the place giving the radiation treatment called and said that she wasn't eating well, and they thought she'd do better at home and that the radiation had diminished enough for it to be safe. So Toby went and picked her up--she purred almost the entire way home, I am told--and we have ensconced her in the spare bedroom. The last I saw her, I'd brought in food and water and she was purring and chowing down, so I expect she wasn't eating because she was depressed and lonely, not because she was feeling bad.

Two weeks to go until she can be released.

edit: She has just commenced howling to be let out. It's going to be a long two weeks.
