Prompt for the Day: “Playful”

The child-like minded people at the Daily Press group of Word Press thought we needed to use the word “Playful” to base our various works of art on today.

Wish my Cat was More Playful

It is rare he feels like running around the house like someone had tramped on his tail.  Miss hearing the sound of four or more little feet flying through the house!  We adopted two cats long ago.  They were great house mates in every place we lived.  Running around during the hours we were awake.  (Considering our messed up work schedules at the time, they were very adaptable!)  Unfortunately, the last of the pair passed away back in 2010.

A month later we adopted our current cat.  He was sick when we adopted him, so we could not throw him out in the snow to break him of running to the door every time one opened like we did with our first two cats.  Now I wish we had anyway!  Every time a door opens he either runs to it or goes and hides in fear.  (Haven’t figured that one out yet.)  No longer sick, he just has a sensitive stomach.  When my husband leaves the house, either for work or other reasons, it is about a 50 / 50 chance the cat will vomit.  Separation anxiety, I guess.  Cleaning up the mess is no problem for me, but if I leave it for my husband he cleans it up and then proceeds to throw up himself.  Most of the time, I clean it up unless I am feeling ill already, or if the cat has been vomiting unceasingly which means he needs a dose of his medicine squirted down his throat.  Unfortunately, I can not do that because my hands are not steady enough.

Once the cat has his medicine he runs away and hides.  Feel bad for the animal, but get tired of cleaning up his messes!  He definitely does not feel very playful after receiving a dose of medicine.

Please Help Fight Terrible Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.
