friday cat databending

well leland is back from the vet... he was a little loopy at first, perhaps from the ketamine in his system, but he seems to have come down from his special k trip by now. he's going to need some aftercare for the next couple weeks; the hardest part will be the recommendation to rinse his mouth after he eats. he never really eats meals; he's more of a snacker. he's peckish. giving him a rinse after every time he eats would require very close monitoring, which i can't really provide (for example, right now i'm at work). either that or try to force him onto a "mealtime" schedule, but i imagine it'll be hard enough to switch him over to canned/moist food... he was hungry enough to eat it last night, but this morning he didn't seem too interested.

but anyway, without further ado, here is friday cat bending!

as a contrast to last week's edition here is a super new photo, again of leland lying on my performance rig, but this time in my new (current) house, so the background is very different. i took this sometime last week; if you look closely you can even make out the growth (which was removed yesterday; right now, the area is understandably red, and the wound was sealed with one suture—the suture looks like a little piece of string on his chin, or an extra-long, extra-thick chin hair).

also, to be different i went with good old-fashioned PSD bending this time, rather than JPEG.

i got 11 bends out of this bending session before the PSD file broke. 11 seems like too many for one blog post, so i'll post 6 this week and the other 5 next week.

when you're composing a draft, you can't really preview your posts. i mean you can, but only on a blogger "preview" page: you can't see what your post would look like with your template and all that stuff.

so what happened was i wrote out this post a couple days ago, but i got the filenames wrong: i had "bent1" etc when the filenames are actually "bend1". i didn't catch the problem until this morning after i published. then i went in and fixed all the urls.

that's why you couldn't see the pics at first, and then they magically appeared: those links were actually broken for about 5 minutes.

well... if i use absolute links to the images rather than relative links, i can preview the images in blogger. i much prefer to use relative links (they're shorter and cleaner), but they do allow me to check that my image filenames and that stuff are okay when doing a "preview".
