What I didn’t realize when I wrote my post yesterday was that Lion wasn’t feeling well again. He’d made breakfast but he was barely standing. He was nauseous and very unsteady on his feet. He slept a lot yesterday and didn’t eat much. When you’re nauseous the last thing you want to do is piss off the stomach gods. I made him tea, brought him water and, when he was ready for it, I made him some toast. This morning I decided what we both had was some sort of 24-hour stomach bug. Maybe not a severe one but thankfully it didn’t last long.
There was no joy in Mudville last night. Although Lion ate a decent dinner with no ill effects, he was still a little wobbly. There was no way sex of any kind was happening. We were both on our iPads throughout the day but we did hold hands from time to time. The biggest thing I did for Lion, I think, was being there beside him whenever he needed me.
This morning, knock on wood, we both seem fine. I shaved Lion and realized he didn’t really have much hair anywhere. We decided not to use the zapper to determine if any hair grows back. It may very well be that the depilatory worked well in terms of hair removal. Bothering Lion’s skin is a whole different matter. I think he was right to return it to Amazon. I was just wondering if a depilatory made for women’s faces would work for Lion’s sensitive skin but still get rid of the hair. It might be worth a try.
I’m not sure we’ll do any Box O’Fun stuff today. Lion may still be fairly fragile. We’ll certainly snuggle later and see if we can get anything else going. I’ll decide before bedtime if Lion will be locked away again or not. I know he’s not necessarily thrilled with the idea of being caged but it’s not his decision. I’m trying to be supportive and in charge at the same time. It’s not an easy thing to balance.
