January 17, 2005

Playing with Ignatz the cat--she's looking at me ready to pounce and then she does and hooks her claws into my arm and it's painful but not really. I can see them in deep so I grab her at the scruff with my left hand and try to pluck her off but her claws are meat-hooked so I've got to lift and 'curve' her claws out so as not to rip off the skin. Can't get her claws out and she's struggling now-- I'm trying to hold her tight because it's all going to rip up my skin and suddenly she growls and hisses and rips free with a sudden movement. My arm isn't bleeding--Huge hunks of skin--flaps which I calmly pat back into place. No pain but I'm looking in the bathroom cabinet for some Mercurachrome. Nothing there except sad old rusty Band-Aid tins. I open one and a black spider starts coming out and I drop it into the sink horrified and now the spider is trying to crawl up sink but keeps sliding back down. I pull the plug lever and start filling the sink with hot water--the spider is swimming in circles and I feel sort of awful but now push the plug lever and the spider goes down the hole and I'm glad.

To change the setting, you need to do it the template:

As for my leaf picture in my blog, I replace the original picture which has this url:


to your own picture, you may upload the photo into Hello and use that url instead. But you got to have a photo that is same size with the original

That's interesting. I just dreamed about my cat! I linked you by the way. Well, you inspired me to write down my dream today. I had been slacking on my dream blog. The skin flaps and the spider imagery in your dream are great. It evokes in me a feeling of being invaded and having to fight back but feeling conflicted about it.
