Yodel is back home.

He has been provided with three nice medications. He has an antibiotic, a pain med, (narcotic,) and a muscle relaxer to relax his urinary tract. He is also on a special diet, which we will have to feed him for the rest of his life. He also has an e-collar, which he is not wearing. There is somebody here and awake almost all the time anyway. He has shown no desire to rip his stitches out. He poked them curiously the first day, since then he has left them alone.

He is full of goodwill and bliss. He has been sleeping and eating, and we are so glad to have him home!

I asked if he needed to give up his after work ritual with Mike. (They share a bag of Cheetos.) Vet called Frito-Lay to ask about their suitability for cats. They said they are not required to report magnesium levels. Nor did they know how safe their product was for cats. Vet said Cheeto time has to be put aside for now.

So now I can get my brain back, and I hope to do some writing. I am sadly behind.

So glad to hear Yodel is home! I hope his new diet, Cheetos aside, isn't too restrictive and he takes to it.

KITTEH. So nice to have him home, I'm sure. Also fairly sure Cheetos aren't going to do anyone any favors. But now I want Cheetos.

Aw, bless.

Can I pick your brains ref Marlowe? Which is the best biography of him?

Two, I would say-- Charles Nicholl 'The Reckoning.' It mostly deals with the spy stuff, and the theories of his death. Not so much a straight biography, but still gives a good overview of his life and his character.

And for more of an overview: 'In Search of Christopher Marlowe' by AD Wraight and Virginia F Stern. That one has lots of pictures!

The good thing too, about Marlowe is this: if you want to learn about other stuff like the language, or the theater, you can Shakespeare books instead of Marlowe specific ones. They were the same age within months.

Also, there are a few really good books about Walsingham. I have used those too. Complicated guy, Walsinghamn. I think he was really changed and frightened by being trapped in Paris during the St Bartholomew's day thing.

Hope that helps.

Thank you. I have/have read lots of Bard books, but no Marlowes. Which one deals most openly with his sexuality?

He looks very relaxed. I'm very glad he's back with you!

I'm sure the entire household is relieved to have him home. As well, he is no doubt glad to be back in familiar surroundings.
