Yesterday morning Mom came downstairs and stopped dead in her tracks because Reebok and I were sitting quietly at the patio door having a staring contest with that orange and white cat that was sleeping on our front porch back in February. As soon as he saw Mom he ran away and climbed up a tree to the fence. That part of the yard really isn't protected very well by our cat fence-in system.
We hardly get to go outside anymore, especially when Huey is outside because he likes to corral us back inside right away. I sure miss rolling around on the patio when the sun is out.
I also went to see the vet yesterday for a checkup and she says I need dental work and gave us a quote. They are too expensive for dental work, especially when extractions are involved. Ask Riley, he'll tell you!
I've been eating fine and I weigh 11lbs, the same as last year. They took some of my blood for testing and my bladder wasn't full enough for a urine sample so I have to go back for that and also give them a stool sample. HA! They said we could bring any sample since it'd be hard to identify which is mine unless I'm caught in the act.
While Mom was waiting to pay the bill she ran into Diane, the rescuer from the place where Sofie, Riley and I came from. She was actually the one that rescued Sofie and her two siblings.
Anyway, Mom was complaining about dental costs and Diane totally agreed they charged too much even though she really likes the vets alot and always brings her rescues there. She whispered to Mom about the place where she takes her cats in for dental work so that is where I'm going to get examined to see what they say and compare costs.
Diane had a teeny, five-week old kitten in a carrier. Mom said she was so tiny and so cute! Diane was also saying she wanted to cut back on rescuing but every time she goes and pulls cats from the shelters more are coming in, so it's hard to turn her back on them. I know I am grateful to have been rescued.
Glad you got GOT!!! And that the V*E*T visit went well!!!
You're a healthy pretty Pebbles!
Hi Pebbles! Talking about dentists, my dental work cost A LOT and I didn't even need extractions. My brofur, Colorado is supposed to get two extractions but my mum is holding off. She wants a second quote, too! happy to hear your life is good!
Hope the second vet's quote is cheaper!
An orange/white kitty outside? When is he coming in???
Glad you are healthy and hope your mom finds a cheaper toofer cleaning. There are lots of toofers in your house! MOL
I am glad you were rescued too!
YAY for all rescuers!!!
Glad your vet visit went well! Hope your Mom is able to get a better price on the dental work at the other place!
