Skills: Jumping to try to catch the laser on the wall
Arrival Story: Former owner was elderly, sick and unable to keep him beyond Feb 2012 and passed away due to the cancer. Since I'm home alone most of the time I made the decision to adopt him. He is an awesome cat! He greets visitors instead of running and hiding.
Today was a tiring day for mom and me. I've been peeing outside the litter box (NOT spraying, marking, etc) since late last week. She remembered what Jackson Galaxy of My Cat from Hell said about taking us kitties to the vet when we do that. I didn't have a blockage or stones but there are crystals in my urine. I had to stay at the vet until I produced a sample about 3:30 this afternoon and was taken in at 9:30 this morning so that took a while. We brought home Hills Science Diet urinary s/d food to help dissolve the crystals and prevent me from getting worse. Mom & her aunt came to get me a little after 4:30 since she'd just had her own appointment.
Mom also had a health scare of her own to deal with. During her check up last week her doctor noticed changes on a big mole near her belly button so while I was at the vet she was at the dr getting a biopsy on that. She vows never to tan or get too much sun exposure ever again. She had a bad sun burn by the time she was 10 yrs old. She has a page of after care instructions and took a strong tylenol for the night since the doc gave her 2 of those. She has a couple stitches covered with a band aid and is a little tender but otherwise ok. She goes back next week for stitch removal and the results will probably be ready by then. Her aunt came with when she picked me up from the vet so she wouldn't hurt herself. It was refreshing for both of us to ride in a car instead of the bus.
It will take a few days for us to feel better, but we're home & recovering together.
The long dark & cold nights are getting to mom and me. It's just now getting back above 0 in Minnesota after a few days of extreme bitter cold. Mom is relieved it will stay double digits above 0, better for running errands & taking out the trash & litter genie.
I'm already bored of almost everything I got for Christmas except for a red tulle ball. Its similar to a crinkle ball.
Gotcha day is coming soon.
