A new cat

Earlier today I went to the local pet shop and bought a kitten.  That kitten is my first kitten, all my previous cats were adults cats ditched by their owners.  I wanted a kitten for once.  It’s a male kitten and he’s black.  He’s really sweet and affectionate.  There were other kittens at the pet shop, but he alone came to me, purred when I took him, and climbed on me; after that when the girl there tried to take him he did not want to leave me.  I felt he was the right cat for me so I choose him.  I’ve decided to call him Merlin, I think it suits him.  I shall post pictures later.

Tempting ritual dress and coat

I’d like to buy a ritual dress and coat but with my small and petite frame nothing fits me.  I’ve spotted that online store a while ago, but I was busy putting all my money on the vet lately for my cat, and my prosperity altar, that had no money for that then.  The store in question, they do the clothing made to measure following your measurements, hence why I want to get them while they still do it.  It’s a gothic boutique but it has pretty items.  The dress I have my eyes on is this one:

And the coat it’s that one:

Wish me good luck!!!

New page about Maurice

I’ve decided to create a tribute page to my cat here on my blog.  I’ve used all his photos and created a photo album with them.  I’ve also uploaded all his videos on YouTube.  You can see the result here:

My prosperity altar – final

I finally got the latest items for my altar, including the new statue of Ganesh.  So I took many pictures of it.  You have to open images on another tab with WordPress to see them full size, since they always shrink images to make them fit the width of the blogs.  The photos are really big so you will miss details if you don’t.

The first photos are of the altar itself and a closer view one:

I bought a green jewellery box where I could keep the crystals on top well protected, and everything else at the bottom.  I always keep the box open.  A friend gave me a green shawl so I put the altar box on top.

I have lots of coins in my box.  I have 3 old copper coins with Lincoln and wheats symbol for prosperity.  I also bought an old silver coin.  I have three chinese Feng Shui coins as well.  I added too some coins of the canadian 10 cent coin, because it shows a ship, that could represent good fortune being brought to me.

Among the asian items that I bought, beside the Feng Shui coins, is a japanese maneki-neko, I bought two, I keep one in my wallet and the other I keep it in the altar box.  I bought a chinese golden gold bar and a chinese golden gold fish.

I put herbs, rice and spices that attract prosperity in a small pot, mixed them, then I put some in a small green bag which I keep in the box.  I already had a few myself: allspices. clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and rice.  I bought a few at a store: juniper berries, patchouli, Tonka bean and vetiver roots.

I bought a rabbit’s foot when I was a kid and I still have it, and I decided to add it to my altar to bring luck to me.

I was given a small Fortuna charm, with a four-leaf clover, and I keep it on top because it’s very fragile.

I bought crystals that attract prosperity and I keep them on top well protected.  The crystals I bought are: aventurine, citrine, black tourmaline, chrysoprase, pyrite, lepidolite, blue sodalite and turquoise.

I bought as well seals of Jupiter and I keep them at the bottom of the box.

I picked the Archeon Tarot because it has nice coins in the Pentacles suit and on the Wheel of Fortune cards.

I choose the Goddess Fortuna because I’ve always liked the artistic representations of her with her cornucopia, filled with vegetables and fruits, and other times with coins.  She does represent for me prosperity and abundance.  I decided to add the God Ganesh to remove blocks and obstacles.  After all Ganesh is the Remover of Obstacles and the facilitator of good fortune, he removes any obstacle to wealth, good fortune, success, or anything else when asked.  And Ganesh has some prosperity aspect as well.

Sad news

As you know, my cat has been sick for some time, and there were complications, so I decided earlier this week to euthanize him.  It was the best for him.  I’m really heartbroken.  I shall miss him.

Photos of my cat

My cat’s health state

I went to see a vet last month who said that my cat was in a seriously bad health state.  She even told me if I would have not brought him to the vet he would have died.  She thought at first he only had a few months to live and she gave me a syringe and wanted to show me how to feed him that way, because cats in the state she thought he was do not want to eat and you have to force them.  So she came with a critical care pate to show me how to feed him, and my cat jumped on the pate she had brought him and devoured it.

So she changed her diagnostic because of this behavior, thinking that my cat probably decided he did not like the dry food anymore I was giving him, and started to eat less of it, then started to lose weight, which is exactly what happened.  My cat was still in a very fragile state, because he had lost a lot of weight, was very dehydrated, amorphous, cold temperature, etc.  So she gave him something to hydrate him, then told me to give him the critical care pate in small doses and mix the dose with water and give him this way.

So I bought a lot of that critical care pate, and I had to go back buy more twice, and gave him some whenever he was hungry, because it was important for him to gain weight, and his appetite grew with time, so much that he ate around 41 cans in a month.  He feels heavier and he has more energy to come to me for affection, and for more pate of course!

Yesterday I went to see the vet for the continuation of his treatment.  My cat has gained two pounds since his last visit, his temperature is normal this time, but he’s still very dehydrated, so she hydrated him again like last time.  She gave me medication for him for his heart and kidneys, and she told me she suspects he might have hyperthyroidism so she took a blood sample.  She called me later in the evening to confirm with me he does have hyperthyroidism.  So now he has medication to take for that and he will have to keep taking the other medication for a while because hyperthyroidism damages the heart and kidneys and the medication is there to prevent that.  So as long as his hyperthyroidism condition is not stable yet he has to take them.  She has changed his food and he does not need to take critical care pate anymore.  I just feel relieved to know what he has and that the medication will make him better.  I still have to go to the vet for the coming months to see how he fares with the medications.

World of Darkness Online Cancelled

I’m really heartbroken to hear that CCP Games have decided to cancel World of Darkness Online.  I’ve always wanted to play such an MMO in such a vampires-supernatural creatures dark setting.  Vampire the Mascarade: Bloodlines is among my favorite games and I was so looking forward the MMO version of World of Darkness.  I was planning to make two vampires, one Gangrel and one Tremere.

What bugs me is that CCP Games put time, money and people all these years on mediocre and failed games like Dust 514 and Valkyrie, instead of making World of Darkness Online their focus, they have kept spreading themselves with worthless projects.  And considering they purchased White Wolf that means that they own the IP, and therefore no MMO or games most probably will ever be made based on World of Darkness because of them.  So I’m really disappointed with their incompetence.

Let me put here the trailer of the game and show what could have been an awesome game:

My new favorite drink

I’ve never liked tea, coffee or herbal tea, even though I’ve tried many times.  As for coffee, I rarely drink it but when I do I prefer mocaccino coffee that they sell in small bags.  Because of my insomnia, I’ve tried all sort of herbal teas but I’ve never liked any of them.  Up until now anyway.  I found this herbal tea

herbal tea Twinings

at the grocery store.  I really love this herbal tea and I’ve gotten used to drink it often.  I’ve bought it these last months at the grocery store, but this month I could not find any, not even at the mall and the two pharmacies I checked.  It looks like I’ll have no other choice but to buy it at Amazon.ca from now on.
