Its a hard life being a furry stash guard

Its such hard work being a furry stash guard and living with these humans.....

In the morning after the little one has gone out of the door, the big one makes a warm liquid and sits down to sip it.

I look at her and she looks at me.... but shes not as smart as she thinks.... When i talk to her she never understands.

I guard her stash pile.... she tells me its very important and not to put my claws in the glittery bits....
Im not allowed to play with the ribbons either... but i wait until she isnt looking. After i have completed my guard duty, i go to the tub for a drink. I hate bowls of water... so nasty. Once i have had a sip or two of water.... i like to have a little nap. Then its back to my main job of guarding.
After i have completed my split shift, i like to let her rub my chin, it gets quite itchy being all furry.

What a sh*te week

Yep i did swear... yes I meant every bleeeep of it.... and I just NEED to rant!!!!

Yesterday I took Katie to the Maxillo Facial unit in Glasgow. I was told it was ONLY to make a mould of her mouth for splint that was needed to help with her teeth grinding. She was sent for a face Xray and the machine went around her head as she sat still.

When we went back down we found out that her Jaw was sooooooo badly damaged that we are looking at a jaw replacement.... yes you read correctly... REPLACEMENT JAW JOINTS!!!

I HATE JRA with a passion, I hate what it has done to my child, the damage it has caused, the changes that it has made to my gorgeous girls body and the pain it leaves her in daily.

I hate that it has made me this whinging cow who only talks about JRA and the effect its having on my life. I try hard to stay positive but its hard.

It's like a third member of my family.... the naughty child who pokes and prods and constantly wants attention and eventually gets it.... there is no getting away from JRA.... there is NO ignoring bad behaviour. its here its got my full attention and hell there is sod all I can do to change it.

so if anyone reading this has some sanity..... PLEASE give me some... dont hog it all to yourself.
