Imagine waking up at 5am to the sounds of cat retching. It's been done before, I'm used to cats just randomly doing this and then going on their merry way.

This morning, has proved to be VERY different. I'm at work now, already contemplating going home because I'm really worried about Moxie. She's all lethargic and kind of suffering some vertigo thing and I can't figure out if it's because she was just weak from throwing up and needing to eat or if it was something else. She did eat some food this morning, but she's obviously dizzy. There have been a couple times when I've tried to pick her up while avoiding upsetting her stomach and she has FREAKED OUT. Plus, jumping up on the bed, or jumping down from it seems to involve a lot more preparation than normal, like she's not really sure where things are. I don't know if she's waiting for the horizon to level out or if she's just weak or sore or what the deal is. If she's still acting like this when I go home during lunch, I have to take her in.

I don't know if she got into something, if something happened in the middle of the night, or what the deal was. She was fine when I went to bed, and this morning, everything is just upside down and chaotic. And I'm just worried.

Good luck focusing on work this morning. *worries more*

So, after a 10 minute observation period in the apartment, I have concluded the kitty is in fact okay. What led me to this conclusion?
  1. A lot of climbing and jumping from things, including using the bed as a bridge to walk across the room, rather than going around said bed just to get to the window.

  2. Happy rolling around the floor, with encouragement to give belly rubs.

  3. Playing with string, pouncing, chasing and all that good stuff.

  4. The ability to look over her shoulder at me without falling over.

  5. Howling for food, when there is in fact food and fresh water in their respective dishes.

I think that's evidence enough that Moxie is okay. I'm going to keep an eye on her tonight, although I'm less thrilled at the prospect of leaving her alone over the weekend than I was before. Times like this, I wish she and Sylvia would get along better so I could bring her back to the cabin with me. Sadly, Sylvia is an only cat, and Moxie is pretty much an only cat as well. Although, it makes for some entertaining moments when you put them in a room together.

Since posting this morning, the only other exciting thing to happen was to get a second monitor. I'm... a little less than thrilled with that I received, mostly because it's working with the monitor I currently have and the color is off. You can put an image across both screens and have it look like it's a different shade somehow. *sigh* This is what happens when my tech-inept manager orders things for us. I didn't even need another monitor, and yet, here it is. Oh joy.

Anyone have experience working with dual monitors?

And now that I've whipped everyone into a frenzy over the cat... why don't you all tell me what's going on in your life for a change? I swear I'm trying to get better at commenting, but I'm a work in progress when it comes to the internet.
