Cooper Gets a Bath
Hi guys!! Sorry I’ve been MIA thus far today…one of my best friends from college was in town and I got to spend the entire day with her :).
Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement about me running a 10k! It means so much!
So last night we had to give Cooper a bath. Now, as is fairly common knowledge, cats hate water. When I was petting Coop the other day I noticed a bunch of scab-like bumps around his neck. We wanted to make sure that Cooper didn’t have fleas so we decided to give him a bath- apparently fleas are much easier to spot if the cat is wet.
Cooper was not at all happy about being held down and getting super wet…but he did such a good job! I was so proud of my little baby :).
As soon as we had him rinsed off, Cooper tried to run away, but we didn’t want him getting water everywhere so we dried him off really good with a few towels.
Awww…he’s such a cutie :). He was licking himself pretty much the rest of the night after that bath. Cooper already has really soft fur, but I think it may actually be even softer after last night’s experience!
As I said earlier, Rae, one of my best friend’s came to visit today! She is currently in PA school in New York City and she has a couple weeks off before she goes back. Rae and I attended college together and were in the same sorority!
Rae got to my house today around noon. We started chatting away and finally decided to go to Panera for lunch. After lunch we went to the mall. You see, I have a friend’s wedding to attend on Saturday and I don’t really have a dress to wear. Sadly, after trying several on at Forever 21 and H&M I didn’t find one :(. Oh well.
We came back to my house after our mall excursion and sat on my couch and talked for several hours. It was so amazing to talk to her and catch up on all of the intimate details of our lives that we don’t get to share on the phone. I love that Rae and I are able to pick up right where we left off even though we don’t get to see one another that often. She is a friend that I will always have in my life! We can talk about anything and everything- nothing is too “scandalous” or gross or personal. I am so grateful for the friendship we have!
Rae had to leave around 6:30, so we went to an early dinner with my mom and one of her friends. I’m hoping we will be able to see each other again soon! I’d love to get to NYC again before I’m done with school!
I didn’t get to workout today, but I’m hoping that will just give me fresh legs for my long run that is scheduled for tomorrow. I’m supposed to run 8 miles? Thank god it’s at a really really slow pace. There is no way I could do that distance fast haha. I think that this plan is having me run that far so I can build up endurance and be able to run the 10k with ease by the time race day comes.
Hope you guys have a great night! Can you believe that it’s already Friday again tomorrow?
If you have a cat, have you ever given it a bath? How did it react?
Are you able to easily reconnect with friends that you don’t see too often?
