10th tea of Christmas

You know, I’ve never actually had eggnog before so I wasn’t really sure….I wasn’t sure about this tea, but it is delicious. I’m drinking it while listening to Nick Cave and finally ‘wrapping’ presents (I put everything in bags bc I’m lame and think wrapping paper is a waste, at least bags are reusable? yeah? maybe it’s actually just laziness. who knows.) and ugh, so nice. cinnamon-y. nutmeg-y. the yunnan base is /chef kiss/.

also, I’m adopting my sister’s cat that she was going to rehome to a farm in NM, where that poor cat would have been living OUTSIDE, when she had been living in a home for the past two years and was used to people providing for her. wtf. I thought that was so cruel. Percy (the cat, a girl cat that my nephew named after Percy the train) might be a fellow anxiety sufferer. she might also be stressed out due to living in a house with two loud children and two older (and one who is definitely meaner) cats, all while not having a lot of attention (other than my sister yelling at her). we’ll see how she does in a much quieter environment. I think she deserves a chance to live her best life. that, and personally, it’s been a really jarring change for me to live in a cat-less house. when I woke up yesterday, I immediately went to go check on my Spooky-cat, like I normally would and then realized that he’s not here anymore and started crying. Percy isn’t a replacement, and she will be a very different cat, but at least there will be a little creature running around and I hope that she will feel more calm and more loved.

So kind of you. She’ll probably be be less anxious in a quiet home. Pets for Percy when she arrives :)

I used to know how to make several things in origami, but have never learned how to wrap a box… I am totally a bag person too. Have a closet full of them. The advent calendar I made my friend was just a gift bag filled with little packets of tea that it randomly “draws” one from each day, hahaha.

Kitty for Christmas!!! That’s so exciting. I really wish my apartment wasn’t one of those medieval “no pets!” types, I would love to have a cat…

Does Idaho do Emotional Support Animals?

Cats are pretty freakin’ awesome except when they barf. You’re going to have one happy kitty, I bet! (If only you could explain to them where they could have been!)

@derk, they do, but I don’t know if I would qualify. I feel a bit weird having to essentially get a mental illness on my medical history just to override the fact that all the apartments around here are “no pets.” But since depression is “co-morbid” with chronic migraine due to the constant pain, my doctor may be willing to go that route. This apartment does allow birds and fish, and my cockatiel is now 20 years old now (!) so I haven’t felt the need to push for that yet since there is no way I could have a cat as long as she’s still kicking around. But I may decide to make that choice (even though I feel weird about it) once she is no longer around.

Also, I just finally read your note after my early excitement for Eggnog Yunnan. I love that Nick Cave is your wrapping music of choice. Also, Percy will have the best new home. I know Percy won’t be the same as Spooky-cat but hopefully Percy might ease that loss a little. We had a homeless cat that is the most friendly cat who clearly had been dropped off by a previous owner. He finally was able to live in our house after the other cats passed and he is the best cat. So sometimes cats find the right home when they need to!
