The Domestic Scene
Ms. Spots would like it to be known that although she spent Friday feeling unwell and spent most of the day under the couch with no interest whatsoever in food, and even though her human was so irritating as to drag her to the vet and have subcutaneous fluids given, she is feeling better now. She is unsure she is quite her usual self, but she does regard a good carrot as something to be eaten.
Orion thinks that Ms. Spots smelled particularly interesting after her veterinary excursion, and he made attempts to mount her, which she rejected with considerable annoyance.
The human supposes that perhaps now it will be possible to settle down and write the conference paper that will be presented in mid-November. Or, failing that, to finish polishing up the writing sample that will accompany the latest postdoc application (Getty).
