New Year’s Eve Day

Who ha, get dat pig!  Here he comes Kali…snort, snort.

aakpigDo you think our friend Bacon looks like this pig, Shoko?  Sure, if he wore a grass skirt.  Snort, snort.

Hey it’s quiet, where’s mom?  She’s gone to the dentist.  Oh cwap…I know how she feels ….poor mom.  It’s just for a cleaning.  Just…. JUST for a cleaning…cleanings are, *HELL on nip.* They take weeks to get over.  You’re being dramatic again Shoko.  They’re not that bad.  Are too!

Mom’s home…my what clean teeth you have mom.  Hey what’s dad doing?  Kali…. Kali!

 Kali stands up yelling in her carrier.  Mew, Mew Mew….(translation)…run and hide Shoko. You don’t have to tell me twice Kali, I’m gone.  Cwap…get away mom.  Shoko lays down in her travel box.

I know where we’re going.  It’s no mystery Shoko.  We only ever go to the vet in the car.  Maybe we’ll get Dr. Sara, I like her.  She’s still going to poke and prod us, Kali.                                                                      aaarrivingvetI demand to go home…IMMEDIATELY, if not sooner.

aakscarrierNobody’s listening to me Kali.  I guess they mean business.                                                                           aasdrDr. Sara said I have excellent teeth.  They look like a 1 year olds teeth.  Wow, I’m doing good. I also have some arthritis in my back leg but not like Kali.  What?  NO, not me!  She said I have gained over a pound since I got my teeth out.  Lordy, not a diet.  Dr. Sara told mom to weigh me once a week to see if I’m still getting voluptuous (my word not hers) and if I am we’ll have to do something because I’m risking diabetes.  Mom’s told me what a terrible disease this is.  I’m depressed.  Dr, Sara gave me 3 needles and then I was really down in the dumps.

Kali was next.

aakdrKal was given the once over and prodded like a toy.  Dr. Sara showed mom how to massage Kali’s back and joints.  Kali’s iris’ have a fair bit of grey mist over them.  This means she doesn’t see well.  She would see things out of her peripheral vision better.  However if a cat moved, her eyes will catch the movement.

Then we went home.  There was no yelling or singing the song of our Meezer ancestors.  Dr. Sara gave us lots to think about.

When we arrived home I headed for the bathroom.img_0945OK mom, let’s weigh in like Dr. Sara said.  I don’t want to get diabetes or anything else.

 

May you have the lapse of memory to forget the people you never liked
The good fortune to run into the ones that you do,
And the eyesight to tell the difference.

SHOKO…..BLACK

KALI…..ORANGE                                                                            pizap-com14832417954731

    It’s good to be aware of how to look after your health…can you get a special vet-approved diet kibble? Unfortunately, ladies who have had a certain operation can be prone to a little extra..voluptuousness…
    Hope Mom’s teeth have settled down and Happy New Year to you all! 🙂 xxx

      Mom says she is going to restrict the amount of kibble I get. Instead of filling the bowl up during the day I will be restricted to one bowl a day. We will be getting more exercise too,either outside in the snow or down in the basement. Then at the end of the week at weigh in time, we’ll see if it helps.

      Happy, happy New Year.

      It’s about the same here Jean. Kali has 4 teeth and Shoko chews at different things and does enjoy dry food actually more than wet food….and her teeth are well, you read about it, very good.

    A vet day, yhyy. You went trough it like ladys. The weight problem, yes, I have it too, we have run and play more, eat less.
    I hope your mom’s teeth are not painfull.
    Pippi, a cat who went over the bridge, bite the vet to his finger, the vet was angry, he didn’t check her, but gave us a bill, 20 euros. One bite, 20 euros, not expensive, said mom.

        I wasn’t that fond of 2016, either. For one thing, it was way too political. I am cautiously optimistic that Trump will fulfill his campaign promises, and I am equally disgusted at the measures Obama is taking prior to stepping aside.

        Trump is a big question mark and I’d much rather he was back doing his business in NY rather than in office. I don’t trust him a bit. He has managed to talk out of both sides of his mouth. I get the idea that this is all a big joke to him. He will make a point of doing what is best for him and if the country pays for it…..so?
        We don’t hear a lot of political news here so the only things I have heard about Obama have been positive in my opinion. Like putting aside lands for parks.

        IMHO obama has been the worst president in US history and I’m sure there isn’t enough space in this comments section to detail why. He’s basically ruined our country’s health care system, created a situation wherein racial tension is much worse than 8 years ago, taken God out of as much as he could and if that wasn’t enough, meddled in other countries with such incompetence that Egypt has an arrest warrant out for him and his cohort, Hillary.
        BTW, while I love parks, did you realize he set those lands aside despite the fact that the people in those states didn’t want them protected in such a way that they could not be enjoyed by the public?

        He has not designated the land ‘parks’ he designated them monuments, which means that no one can use/enjoy the area. IF he had made them parks, I wouldn’t be so opposed to his high-handedness.

    Shoko, you still look slim in your pictures, and teeth of a 1 year old. Wow! Does Kali have to go on the special eating and exercise plan with you(spelled D.I.E.T.)? I am sure Kali makes up for the front fog in the eyes with her other good senses. May 2017 be a happy and healthy one for you all, including your Mom and Dad. ❤

      NO dieting for Kali. Just me. That’s ok…I plan on whining a lot. MOL The vet’s diagnosis explains some things that Kali does and her not seeing Shoko then getting a bushy tail when Shoko moves.

    I also have to get weighed every week, kitties! If I gain weight, Mom puts me on treat restriction. It’s because of the way I run and slide and jump with my skinny legs. Mom is afraid if I get too fat, I will hurt my legs from jumping and zooming. Aargh.

    Love and licks,

      Hi there my favourite manxs! Kali’s problem with her eyes has been there for awhile now. It doesn’t seem to have gotten worse so I think she will be ok. I believe this is part of her aging. She gets about and doesn’t go anywhere without me so she will be my shadow.

      Thanks for asking. I like that.

      Mom has had a diabetic cat that she gave insulin for 2 years and it is not fun she says. She had to poke the cat every morning. I don’t want a needle every morning so will help mom in her endeavours to keep me healthy.

    Snorts and looks innocently – I wonder where that pig came from? Rolls with piggy laughter. The ‘vet’. Shaking my head – that never ends well. Someone here – whispers Houdini – has an appointment this month – sshh don’t tell him. If I haven’t said anything – happy New Years sweet friends. XOXO – Bacon
