5 December 2006 - Tuesday

Work: Argh argh ar-- hey, is it working? Cool!

Anime: We have finished Princess Tutu! It was a good ending. Then we started Gankutsuo and Ghost in the Shell: Stand-Alone Complex: Second Gig (or whatever the hell the actual title is). Gankutsuo is exceedingly pretty, but oh so very doomed. GitS appears to be more of what the first season had. (Are we sure the Major is a girl?)

Next week, we start another new series! Probably Melody of Oblivion, unless I am extra-competent at downloading Mushi-shi.

Reading: Carnival (Elizabeth Bear). It was pretty good.

Cats: Dani is becoming matted again. It doesn't hurt her or anything, but I am still sad that her fur is not as beautiful as it could be.

Writing: check, I think. I didn't take a word count before starting, and I was doing a lot of editing of pre-existing words, but it looks about right.

But... fur mats can hurt the fuzzes! If they get too tight, they pull on the skin, and can be painful or worse. =( I think that pet stores may have de-matting comb things; i've not used one, but it's good to nip these things in the bud. Hm, come to think of it, sometimes Smokey got mats; at that time, i used a comb to isolate the mat from his skin, then carefully cut the mat out. With all his fur, a casual inspection would not notice the hole.

I do remove the mats when they get big enough that I notice them. My special technique is to pull them apart sideways (apply force parallel to the skin), which seems to separate the loose fibers that are causing the mat from the fur that's still attached, leaving me with a handful of fluff and a cat with nicer fur. If I do it right, it doesn't seem to bother her at all.
