Well, it was a rough week for my kitty Pandora (AKA P.D.). She got out Monday night and we couldn't get her to come back in and we couldn't even find her the next morning. Finally she came bolting across the street from the bushes there. She got in a fight was one of the neighbor's cats and ended up with an abcess on her tail. I thought her tail was broken at first because she was dragging it along, but the vet said it is very common for a cat to get bit on the tail during a fight. PD must have been trying to run!

So the poor dear had to have a drain put in her tail and she couldn't stand having that horrible smell following her around for several days. There are two puncture wounds on her tail that look just like vampire bites!
She's doing better, but still on the mend. I had a very sleepless night Monday night (thanks PD!) and a big old headache on Tuesday and Thursday from the ordeal, but I still managed to get a few things done this week. It wasn't all moping around :-)
I posted more antique funeral photos to the Memento Mori section of my website. I love antique graveyard photos, they are great to prop up in cabinets next to other macabre items.

You can find these graveyard photos here.

And speaking of graveyards and ghostly things, I found this amazing antique Victorian paperweight with the most wonderful ghostly image of a lady inside. She is truly spooky! I have posted her to my website here.

Another great find this week was this antique embalming machine. It probably dates to about the 1930s or 40s and has two glass containers, one that says "Suction." Really a great old funeral home find! You can see it here.

I am always on the lookout for antique skeletons and other human bones and recently I found this amazing antique skeletal foot! It has he most wonderful old patina, like old ivory and the bones are all labeled. Very old piece and really great! You can see it here.

And last but not least is a new addition to the Mad Scientist section of my website. An antique child's medical brace. Very spooky old collar brace. Great for your mad scientist decor! You can find it here.

I have other antique medical braces, so be sure to stop by and take a look!

Well, I'm looking forward to a better week next week for both myself and PD. I hope your week is great :-)
