One Sick Kitty

Poor baby.


Nick took her to see one of our friends/mentors and he thinks that she might have glaucoma in her right eye, so we have an appointment at the vet today at 2. It is turning into “pet appreciation day” instead – I missed going to all the stuff at work, but that’s okay. I brought Roxy home and am sitting here with her, eating lunch, until I have to drive her back into town for the appointment. She has not had a good day and she gets car sick, so we’ll have to cuddle her a lot tonight to make up for everything today.

We’re just a mess today! Between her cloudy eye and getting sick in the car on the way home, and my killer headache, I don’t know who’s taking care of who in this house  :) 

One thing I liked about having to come home is that I was able to make whatever I wanted for lunch. I don’t mind packing lunches for work, but I hate when I pack something and then I don’t want it at all once lunch time actually rolls around. It took me a long time to decide what I wanted today, but it was a good one.


I made a cheese/tomato/avocado sandwich on an arnold thin that I grilled in a pan to warm the bread.

Plus a huge salad that I loved. I want this everyday!


  • 2-3 cups spinach
  • 1 cup broccoli slaw
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1/2 kiwi
  • handful fresh pineapple
  • handful raspberries
  • 1 radish, sliced
  • 1/2 Tbsp flaxmeal
  • dressing made with 1 tsp olive oil, 1 tsp rapsberry vinegar, 1/2 tsp dijon mustard



This made the salad:


So good – I wish I could eat at home everyday!

I’m going to walk down and get our mail, then load Roxy back in the car for the appointment. I hope nothing really bad is wrong!


Contests / Giveaways:


  1. I will DEFINITELY say a prayer for Roxy today. I hope that nothing serious is wrong!! She is absolutely gorgeous, by the way:).

  2. Sorry about Roxy. I hope she is OK.

  3. Aw, poor Roxy!

  4. Mmmm, that salad looks amazing!
    Awh, hope all goes well with the appointment!

  5. Brandi,
    Sorry about your rough day, and I hope nothing is seriously wrong with your kitty either.

    I would like your lunch salad everyday too. :)

  6. I’m so sorry that both you and Roxy have been spending so much time at the doctor’s office!

    Roxy’s cloudy eye may be a symptom of a common but often misdiagnosed feline ocular herpes infection. This is a viral infection, so don’t let the vet tell you it’s conjunctivitis and throw antibiotics at is. If it is ocular herpes, both oral and topical antiviral drugs will be necessary to control it.

    Most cats have the virus dormant in their bodies, and it comes out in reaction to stress.

    Hope this helps and that everyone (human and feline) is feeling better soon.
