I started making a cat-themed Mother's Day card for my mom.  :) (In Finland, Mother's Day is celebrated on May 12) The card is mostly blue (blue background and one of the cats) in color because it is her favorite. I tried some "tricks" with the salt. I'll see tomorrow if I managed to make any patterns on the card with it. :wonder:

I've been doing these little sheep doodles on another site that has ponies. I was doing them for free, but a friend poked me and said I should open a shop (it would be for game currency) so I asked for a price check. A couple of people have been very rude in my thread. Saying that anyone can draw a blob or glowing line and get lots of the game currency for it. That people like me who aren't artists make REAL artists feel bad. Blah blah blah.

I wrote a reply back, but decided to delete it and just say to the one person maybe they aren't as good of an artist as they think.

I AM an artist. I just work mainly in 3D. Drawing digitally isn't something I'm great at but I think my little doodles are cute and people seem to like them.

Everyone else in the thread has been very supportive and gave me a good range of what to charge if I open a shop. I'm just feeling bummed people had to come in and say things like that. I mean, if you wouldn't pay that price, fine. Say that. Don't dis my me and doodles.

A sample of said doodles for those curious:

Your sheep are really cute! :heart: They made me smile. :) Keep making your art and forget about those stupid commenters! :hug:

(I still haven't published my own drawings anywhere but here on the forum, because I don't have enough courage to do so. I have received wonderful and nice comments here, thank you for them. :heart: )

Shaiyeh, Congratulations that you have so many subscribers to your channel!  :joy:


Ozzy's blood tests results are excellent!  :yippee: Very healthy cat! :heart: :heart: :heart:
The vet also said that the strange vocalizations were probably caused by the sedatives. I also think so, because now Ozzy is ok and hasn't made any extra strange noises. :D We are going home on Monday so I will see the boys (cats) again. I'm going to check Ozzy's nipples regularly and I'll also remind mom that he should do the same when I'm not there at home. Strange case...  :wonder:

Friday was laundry day and I changed the clean sheets & pillowcases to the bed. I still have back pain so these chores took much more time than usual. In the evening, I couldn't bear to drag myself into the shower anymore, so I only washed my hair in the bathroom sink, a wrong choice, because my back didn't like that position either!  >_<

Ozzy's vet visit went well. :) The results of the blood tests, the vet will call tomorrow.
He now has very scaly skin/fur so a medicine was prescribed for that (can't remember the name now). It might be caused by some food or the collar holding, because of which the cat couldn't clean itself. (My mother and I did try to clean Ozzy's fur with wet cotton pads and paper towels every day, and we also brushed once a week. We cleaned his butt area and tail more often, as well as his face.) The tail's skin has completely healed!  :whew:

The thing I didn't write about earlier was related to Ozzy's nipples. I hid the text because it might disgust/shock someone. :wonder:
Some of them (at least the first four) were blackened and cocooned inside the skin!  :crazy: I noticed their strangeness by accident when I touched the cat's stomach. When I examined one of them more closely, it started coming out and came off! It was like a mouse poop!  :shocked: The vet looked at the nipples and found that the black stuff was just dirt and some of the nipples had turned inwards, so she thought they were ok.  :rolleyes: :unsure: I don't know.. If human nipples are like that, it's not a good thing at all, but it's a cat and it's probably a completely different thing with them.

About an hour ago, my mother sent me a message and a video. Ozzy has been making a strange noise. I listened to the sounds in the video and the cat sounded really strange. :| I wrote back to my mother that that's not Ozzy. What kind of creature did you get back from the vet?!  :lol: In addition to the normal vocalization of a cat, there is something like the low muddy mumbling of a creature from outer space.  :nuts: :blink: This is completely new behavior for that cat. I wonder, even though it's been several hours since the vet visit, if the sedatives could still have an effect on its head? He eats, drinks and goes to the litter box normally. Of course, it has now slept more than usual.

Glad to hear Ozzy is doing better :) And to see you here again :hug:
HOM so glad moggie is recovering!!!

:hug: :heart:

I haven't been able to sleep because I've been thinking about Ozzy's upcoming vet visit. :huh: :sleepy: My mother will take him there and immediately let me know what the blood tests reveal. There is also another very strange thing that needs to be clarified, but I will only write about it after I have heard about it myself first.  :unsure:

On Tuesday, I shoveled snow from the yards and also cleaned it out from the bird feeding places so that the ground was exposed. I had to do a lot of other things too, but because of my back pain I couldn't. My back was irritated from that chore again.  >_<

I didn't know it was like that, I just think of Finland as being like Moomintroll forest and once spring has arrived you play a flute and start planning hikes and garden parties. I love hearing you talk about where you live. We stopped feeding the birds about a month ago. There was a light frost last nigth but I think it will be the last.

Moomintroll forest!  :lol: :happy: A wonderful image! :heart:

This is now a very rare situation! There are usually night frosts and they belong to the Finnish spring, but not this one, that it is also freezing during the day and the snow is blowing!  :nope:
As March turned into April, it had been unusually had attracted birds to move to Finland exceptionally early. The cold northerly flow started suddenly, but perhaps the worst situation for the birds was the snowfall, because it covered all the food. :(
I have read news about many dead migratory birds (Robins, Chaffinchs, Song Thrushes..) I have also read that some birds have started to make an escape migration. :(
Fortunately, many people besides me have helped them and continued to feed them. :heart: Now the weather forecasts look a little more positive, as plus degrees and rain have been promised for the rest of the week. In the last days of the month, it may already be closer to 20 °C in some parts of the country! :wow:
