Mom found that out the hard way! Mom got the bad news that her mommy was in the hospital and they didn't think she'd come out alive. It was so sudden and definitely unexpected. So, mom packed up me and Daisy and hit the road. The rest of the furbutts were being cared for by friends. The car ride was 19 hours straight and I definitely voiced my dislike of being cooped up in the cat carrier. I let mom have it...i tested my vocal chords and I didn't stop. She threatened that she was going to stick me in the bed of the truck if I didn't stop. I did not like being trapped like that.
Then, we get to grandma's house and what does mom do, she traps me in the bathroom...that just meant more echo! We were at grandma's house for a week and mom let me out of the bathroom quite a few times but I did spend most of my time in that bathroom. Unfortunately, I never got to meet grandma. They kept her alive long enough for mom to get to the hospital and say goodbye and then she was gone. She was only 61 years old. Mom hasn't seen grandma in 2.5 years. Mom is very sad now.
So, to show how much I love mom, I made sure I yelled my little head off again on the trip home. Another 19 hours straight thru. I thought mom was going to strangle me! MOL!
Mom rescheduled my follow-up appt at the vet for yesterday. I can't believe she put me back in that cat carrier again...you think she would have learned! I got the "all-clear" check-up. No more upper respiratory infection and no more pink eye...so how do they reward me??? With a needle for my first set of shots! I weighed in at 1.8 pounds and I'm growing like a weed! I'm still a little love bug at night though...love to snuggle with mom on the bed! That should make up for my vocal out-bursts lately, shouldn't it?
Rest in peace grandma. We miss you!

Grandma was 61. She passed away 3 weeks ago today. I think grandma would have really liked me. If grandma flies in for a visit, I'll make sure I bat at her wings to let her know I can see her...
