Sorrow and Recovery

So, last we left off, (if you read FB) things were looking pretty grim.

Thursday night I came home from a lovely date night with Lynn and got a face full of a nasty smell and no puppy greeting me at the door, or responding to my calls. There was a puppy produced mess in the floor but she still normally makes some sounds when she's not been able to hold it. Then I saw that Miss Kid's bird was dead on the cage floor. Nox Puppy was still not responding to my increasingly frantic calls. Once I got into the bedroom she came slinking out of the closet where she likes to lay. At that point, not having Miss Kid there to talk to and not wanting to talk about it over the phone we had only a small idea of what had happened.

Originally we were thinking that the apartment had come in and sprayed. After talking with the office manager and hearing that they had not had anybody on site for pest control since Tuesday and it hadn't been on our building anyhow we came to the conclusion that somebody in our building had set off multiple bug bombs. The office manager was extremely upset at the loss of the bird and the poisoning of the dog. She was sad for Miss Kid at losing her very first pet so soon and suddenly. She's sending out a letter to everybody in our building reminding them that bug bombs are not allowed in apartments and why. So sad, but at least there's a resolution of some sort.

Friday I was miserable as my sinuses took the whole face full of poison as a personal affront and blew up at me, so to speak. I went to bed early Friday night and slept for a glorious 14 hours; I woke up feeling a lot more human. Lynn and Miss Kid had left to get tickets for that night. Once they were home we headed out to get lunch before gaming. Gaming ended up cancelled which actually turned out to be a good thing as I spent most of the afternoon working on the schedule for Space City. That evening we went to see A Chorus Line at Miller. Yet again an amazing production.

Sunday we went to fighter practice. I went more to talk Con with the leader of the group since they'll be at SCC and had some questions. I wasn't feeling up to fighting, though I wish I had. It was a great day to fight and a lot of people showed up. I think I was better off in the long run though, for a quicker bounce back to health. That evening Miss Kid helped me go through and correct a few mistakes in the SCC schedule and double check the times.

In a lot of ways it was a quiet weekend which seems to be what we all needed.

So sorry about your pets!!! Is Nox puppy doing better?

Nox puppy seems to be perfectly fine now, if a little clingy. Clingy could be fear / trauma or it could be just playing on Mommy's heartstrings, hard to tell.

:tight hugs:

Oh my goodness! That's awful! Poor animals. :( I'd never thought about bug bombs affecting neighboring apartments! I had no idea. Yikes. :( So sorry for you all!

Technically it is a lease violation to use a bug bomb if you're in an apartment, because of the ventilation issues. I'm grateful that Nox is ok.

So glad to hear you and Nox have recovered. What a heartbreaking situation.

It was, I'm terribly relieved that it wasn't worse.

Another reason I could never live in apartments again. Even bug sprays make me sick.

I am glad Noxpuppy is ok.

I would still ticked at the idiot.

I hate apartments, would never live in one if I could get away with it.

If I ever find the idiot there will be lots of pain, for them.

There's no good way to lose a pet, but that is particularly unpleasant :(
22nd-Jul-2013 08:50 pm (UTC)
Indeed. I feel bad for Miss Kid.

So very sorry to hear this :(

No word on if Miss Kid will want another bird and she seems to be overlooking the cage in the living room but I suspect she just needs some time to heal.
