Walking Around Cast Free

Batman got his casts off about a week ago and he's doing great! The first few days were a bit rough though. He was in a lot of pain. He meowed alot and also hissed and growled and took it out on Fatty (Robin) a bit too. The vet didn't want to send home any pain medication because she didn't want him to do something stupid because of it. Better for him to feel pain and be careful.

It was quite obvious that he needed to strengthen his legs again. The joints looked very "rounded". He has been managing to strengthen his legs on his own quite well by playing with his toys & Fatty and jumping and trying to scratch on his cat stand (gripping and scratching things seems to be the most dificult for him). He has also been stretching his front feet alot- I'm sure they bother him. The bones were not perfectly aligned when they healed, but on the whole, he is doing awesome. He was even the Pet of the Month at our vet office!

Utterly Beautiful

I finally have a spare minute to blog! Fortunately the craziness of my life has simmered down. The busyness hasn't quite yet though. I have 3 more 6-day work weeks and then I get to have a vacation! Yay!

Good thing I like my jobs! I found this beautiful yellow rose at work today. I only have a few planters at my place so it's nice to be able to work with all of these other beautiful plants. Too bad I can't include how wonderful this rose smelled!

Venturing Back to Painting

My boss at the art studio challenged me to paint something. We had this big (3'x3') painting on the wall of a butterfly. It wasn't a very good looking painting- I should have taken a before picture. The butterfly was yellow on a blue background and the whole thing had been outlined in thick black. Ugly.

So the challenge given to me was to paint something on to this canvas that is Robert Bateman inspired (our studio will be offering a Robert Bateman kids
Summer camp). This is what I came up with.

My life has been so crazy lately that I haven't even had a chance to paint anything - probably for about 3 months now! It's been nice to get back into it again.
