Calliope, after the Greek Muse of epic poetry.

The parents seem to having trouble with this name too. It took them months to get Shadowfax right. Sigh.

Cat Update

Sunday: We discovered an abscess on Shadowfax's tail. Some other cat bit him! He was feverish and miserable. :(

Monday: New cat arrived! She loves it here. She's thrilled to be indoors with no other animals or little kids around. (We're keeping her and Shadowfax separated for the time being.) New kitty likes it here so much she refuses to go outside at all.

I took Shadowfax to the vet. They shaved part of his tail, cleaned it up, gave him antibiotics and sent him home, saying the abscess was draining and he'd be fine.

Tuesday: Shadowfax's tail still painful as hell. Poor kitty! :'(

Wednesday: New cat went to the vet for shots. She hated being stuck in a cage in a moving car, and made sure I knew it. Howl, howl, howl. Cranky all through her appointment, but sweet and friendly as soon as we got home.

Shadowfax still miserable, and he hasn't even noticed the new cat yet. He moaned and hissed when we tried to check on his tail. We started to worry about him.

Today: Shadowfax is feeling much better. He let me fiddle with his tail without any complaint. No more swelling, no more pus. He's back to his old happy self. We're very relieved.

New cat still doesn't have a name. She and Shadowfax still haven't met. We might keep it that way until I move out next month, as Shadowfax is very territorial.

In other news, I might have found an apartment in Edmonton. Long-distance apartment-hunting is not fun. I've spent nearly two weeks sorting through red tape and waaaiiitiiing, and still not sure I'm getting it.

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] dreamflower02!

Good News!

I'm getting another cat!

She's a farm cat who isn't coping well with the outdoor-only, fend-for-yourself life. She hates the crowds of little kids that are always around too. So, I'm taking her!

Slight problem though: she desperately needs a new name. I cannot call a cat "Fifi" with a straight face. I'd like to name her after a kickass mythological or historical figure, but I'm having trouble thinking of some. Does anyone have suggestions?

Please link to this post and send your f-lists here with names! (My readership is tiny, alas.)

EDIT: She's orange with white paws and a white bib. Long fur, very fuzzy. Green eyes. Friendly, likes to cuddle and roll in/on things. Can really howl when she's unhappy. Good hunter, but prefers the indoors.
