A Daunting task.
Wait, wasn't Oct 31 Meowloween??
Hey, we seem to remember some pics she tried to capture of us in costumes, sheesh...at least no longer does she do that to us...OK, that settles it, we shall hunt fur selfies from Days of yore when we were younger and maybe too unwise to let her get us dressed up, MOL!!
|We are hopping along with the Cat On mt Head, the Host of The Sunday Selfies Blog Hop|
(Unfurbro the younger was informed by his boss that he had to go to Chicago the same time that meowmy will be gone...shucks.)
Anypaws, this vet office also has a pet boarding place, for many years. The vet techs help to run it as well as the vet's family. They were willing, sight unseen to take both of us and even to hand feed Minko the way meowmy does, with a tiny spoon...and give him his meds, too.
There were two other discovered boarding places, but one was not too thrilled about feeding Minko...so she put an x through that contact. The third one had some strange rules about pick up and delivery of pets...and even though it was fairly close, well meowmy put an x through that one too, MOL! The one we will visit for our staycation is the furthest away, go figure...about 45 minutes drive.
Dog-guy will stay at home to keep pawppy company. (The only reason Pipo will go too is to keep Minko company.)
A few days ago, both of us went to see the new vet. We were deemed healthy, at least I, Pipo was, and Minko seems to be doing OK, though of course the feeding issues continue. A whole year now...sigh...
He gained a few ounces, so meowmy knows she is doing well with her feeding technique and schedule. Vet wrote a letter fur meowmy to copy and give to the boarding vet, so that they will not be too taken aback at his 'spawsial needs', MOL!
Of course we got the usual routine and indignities of poking and prodding, etc...and then the stabbies, OUCH! Oh well, no more of those fur a while! Our teeth are OK too.
Pipo has lost about a pound ovfur the past year, meowmy was happy about that cause she has him on a grain free low gycemic noms. And she tries to get him to exercise when its playtime:)
This office places towels sprayed with feliway over the pet carriers or even the pets themselves if they are 'in arms'. So we did feel quite calm during all of this.
When we got home, and meowmy opened the carriers, Minko hissed mightily at Pipo, and even whapped him. Later he chased and attacked him, OMC;( This went on for two days, wow. Then somehow the aggressiveness went away and now they are back to being nest buddies. This worries meowmy because if we are housed together in a strange environment, will Minko go all aggressive to Pipo again? Meowmy thinks this is some kind of displaced aggression to relieve stress that Minko was feeling??
Meowmy says that although this weekend has been duck weather, cold, dank and drizzly, and windy as well; she is happy it wasn't that white stuff or ice.
And those poor children going door to door for the trick or treating. We think it was just fine fur us to be here at home,warm and cozy and safe.
Since meowmy is going away, we may not be able to visit you much...not sure if there will be selfies either next week...*maybe* late ones again, MOL!!
