Kali Hits The Road

I’ve had quite the day my buds.  First thing this morning after breakfast, mom and dad brought me to my carrier.  Oh Lordy, no….I feel spectacular….I don’t want to go to the vets.  Well, my pleas landed on deaf ears and off we went to the *shudder* vets.  The vet was that Dr. Bowman again…Dr. Kalyn is so much friendlier.  Dr. Bowman is just a young whipper snapper…I trust someone a little older with some experience under their pelt.                                               dr. BowmanDr. Bowman gave me the usual exam…tree trunk up my butt, mining light to see inside my ears and I got thrown placed on a scale..  I gained almost a whole pound.  Mom was so happy.  My food allergy has been kicking up so I have scratched a patch of fur from my neck but there are no marks there.  As mom was paying for this insult, dad whisked me to the car.  When mom returned we were rolling on all fours.

 

I headed straight for the food when we got home….I have to work at keeping that pound on my bod…I like to see mom smile and laugh.   After dining on the ham mom rolls up for me…I call them ham rollups.  I know she sticks my arthritis meds in it but I do love ham and most times I can barely taste the meds. MOL

As I was cleaning the ham off my face, mom decided to put me in the stroller.  Now, this stroller has been in the house for some time and I’ve looked it up and down, stepped in it and it doesn’t seem to do anything  so I was happy to get in the stroller but I started to pace.                                                             akarelMom stuck her scarf beside me and I relaxed with her smell so close to me.

Since I seemed relaxed mom decided we needed a walk outside in the fresh air.  I was a little unsure of this idea but I didn’t say anything, just gave mom my, “Really!” look, with huge blue eyes.  She got the message, stroked my furs and chattered away to me as she usually does and I laid down.

We walked up near the park and fancy that, the city had put a bench out for mom to sit on since she walked Shoko up here.  Someone must have seen her chugging along  and thought she needed some place to sit.  MOL                                                                   akfwkThe smells were awesome.  I loved it and wished we lived closer to the bush.

Have a relaxing evening buds.                                                             Kali and Shoks

 

 

 

What a Day!!

Wednesday Purrs

Today started with Shoko singing at about  5:30am…mom hollered to be quiet Shoko.  This didn’t deter Shoks as she began really singing loud a half an hour later.  Mom got up checked the food, water and kit lit….all looked good so she went back to bed.  However  , after talking with Shoko and wandering around the house, she couldn’t get back to sleep so we all got up at 6:30am….thanks Shoko.

What a horrible morning.  I was minding my own business watching Shoko walk through mom’s containers of flowers thinking, “What a dunce, she’s getting her feet and face all wet.”

                                      

Out comes mom looking all phoney happy and chattering a mile a minute.  This means something is about to happen to one of us.  I was secretly hoping it was going to be Shoko but no way, mom picked me up and remarked how heavy I was.  I am not mom and don’t be so rude!

 

Oh no!! She took me to the carrier with the fluorescent orange blanket….not that I have a carrier without a florescent orange blanket.  This trip will mean the vets.  Mom was kind of upset because I have a tendency to get ingrown nails and when dad clipped my nails last time, the middle nail bled and I made a big fuss about it.

When we got to the vets they took us right away.  This hardly ever happens so I didn’t see my friend Joan.  The technician weighed me and I had lost one and a half pounds.  So there mom…I’m not as heavy as I was before.

 Dr. Bowman was our vet and I didn’t care for him.  He kept poking around my nail so I growled at him a few times.  I got to give him credit….he knew I was getting fed up and sped the exam along nicely.  Turns out my nail was pretty good.  He thinks I have arthritis in my front paws though.  He gave mom some weird looking pills.  You’re not giving those things to me!                                                                        brighten vetThe ride home was very quiet…I had nothing to say and mom was just glad that part was over.

We arrived home and Shoko was nowhere in sight.  Mom called and called her…she was a no show.  Then mom caught a glimpse of her….

                                        Guess she was tired after getting us all up so early.

The capsule…well I smelled the contents of my food and I wouldn’t eat it.  Shoko liked it though.  Mom was having a dicky bird telling Shoko, “No, you don’t need that.”  Next step…..spoon feed me the medicine and food.  We’ll see if that works.

I’m laying out like Lady Muck and mom has a wee spoon with Fancy Feast beef on it and my med.  I taste it and……make way, where’s the bowl of this stuff.  It’s delicious!  Mom is happy and I’m full.
