Sooo, to start quickly, my kitten has gotten fleas, and I know for sure now as I physically saw them yesterday on her body, uuugh it's scary yet annoying. Yesterday I went out and bought some shampoo that I thought would help, but turns out I couldn't use it on open wounds. Inevitably, my sister and I gave Quizzel a bath to help clean up her body some and well, you can naturally see how this went. At first, we tried to just water out the open wounds she got from the bites and excessive scratching. It was getting really bad so luckily we were getting it cleaned up. Ironically this is where I saw the fleas, and immediately tried to go for them but my cat kept turning her head so couldn't reach before they hid back in. The beginning rinse was a test to get her adjusted to the water a bit; boy that plan failed. The moment I touched her in the soapy water in whole she jumped up my body and latched on, scratching my neck in the process. My neck is fine, but it was getting tricky to get that cat in the water. I tried draining it some, making it a bit soapier, nada.
What my sister and I eventually did was scoop up soapy water and washed it down her body; she was still not happy about that but she at least bared through it. She was reaaaaaally cranky though, but we at least washed out all the blood matted in her fur, sadly seeing how badly she scratched herself in the process, but she's scabbing over now, which is better then bleeding wounds. We also got the rest of her body washed up except the face, so we bounded her up in a towel and kept her with us as we watched shows. About halfway of watching we let her out of the towel to clean herself, and she was rather warm being against our bodies so no worries about her getting hypothermia. Also we got neosporin on her wounds; even now when I checked her a few minutes ago, she was still a bit damp where the neosporin was put, but at least the wounds seem to have sealed up already.
Her vet appointment is on Tuesday, and it said first appointment is free for where I'm going and was one of the many recommendations; I ended up going with it simply because my sister thought it was the best choice. I trust her well for that kind of info. Still, I worry. I know I need to get a flea collar and a flea comb at some point, but hey, at least I have my cat's appointment for needed shots coming up, her wounds are infected, and today even, the house is getting clean so even I won't have so much of an itching feeling!
In other news, to say vaguely, I found out the true reason why my brother James is really in jail, and even though the base story of why he's in there is the same, the reasons for it have apparently came to light, and I'm very disappointed. I wish I could say why, but I can't, and I don't hate him, but I'm at that state of, "Why? What made you think this was ok to do? Why didn't you come to us when ya knew you were in too deep?"....whenever his trial is truly over and he gets his truly deserved sentence, then I can really say what it was. Til then, it has to remain private. At least jail visits are going well, and getting him to show the progress of my art, which he tends to enjoy rather well!
Speaking of art, I'm doing a pokemon challenge for inktober, and right now keeping on track for my prompt, but keeping the drawings on a single sheet of paper(and more when I run out of room); I really suck with drawing in ink, but this is good practice to keep an idea for what I should do when using it, so hopefully I'll get it posted eventually(though I tend to keep art stuff on tumblr, will link!). Otherwise I'm starting to do digital a bit more, and streaming more often with friends, and keeping up practice with traditional, and pretty consistent on drawing a charmeleon daily(but occasionally posting them~).
Bleh work is work so skipping that, less stressful but annoying manager who I've learned tried to do good then got shut down by the company, so he just doesn't care anymore! XD He's still a dick though. Anyways, school has been an interesting challenge this semester. I've been doing both Zbrush as a class and learning about texturing to get those skills down, but the thing is, I have no time!! Well, poor time management also plays in effect, but to say the least, I'm quite exhausted, and starting to need to cut back from interacting with most of my friends online if I wanna get more time, which in itself is quite difficult to achieve as I'm quite a social person.
I'll figure out something, cause this semester I'm not going down without a fight, plus the programs are quite interesting in themselves.
Beyond general stuff, oh boy is money problems are back as an issue, as with spending money for my cat, I've also been overspending on games I could wait on, but just had the urge to get them
Now with Skyrim, Super Mario Odyssey, and Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon around the corner, I really don't know how I'mma survive XD Will need to cut back on excessive eating out and probably pick up more shifts from work, which takes away more free time, but, tis needed to make meet's end, ya know? Even picked up a few commissions, one being my icon, and another is along it's way~ Though now I really can't get much more.
Guess that's it for a life update right now, so, hope everyone is enjoying the end of their weekend; got a lot of cleaning to do!
Oh, and for the resolutions, looks like I'm behind on journals, but will try to bring up more specific things to talk about, the game level may not happen in full, but heck, at least I'll design it, and the comic, well, with practice with scenes and people in them starting to develop from this practice this year, it just may be looking like it can happen c: Wish me luck peeps, it's been worthwhile to go after some goals this year! c:
Journals: 22 out 52
Game Level: To designing!
Comic: Working with scenes and bodies within them! c:
