of truly academic posts in progress (ones that actually discuss my thesis). But now Celia’s gotten sick, and is spending a couple of days at the animal hospital on an IV, awaiting the return of her bloodwork. Those posts will have to wait until I’m in a more good-humoured mood. In the mean, I’ll keep reading, and hope that my editor cat will return soon.

(She’s responded to the IV and antibiotics. No more fever, which mostly rules out the fatal peritonitis. And she’s now eating again — what the vet calls “an impressive amount” for a sick kitten. Too, she hasn’t swallowed any sharp objects lately, which is reassuring. But she does have an infection. FIV and kidney disease are still possibilities.)
