Easy Like Sunday

Here are Dorf and Smokey being a teensy weensy bit lazy on a Sunday morning.




So Maw is now laid off work, although when she took the job in January of 2009, she knew it would end, because she did the same job 10 years ago. It was a temporary job doing the US Census. She worked in the office doing just about the same thing that she did 10 years ago. So, now she is at home with us and plans to clean clean clean the house, and start a pet sitting business. Which means that she will be home with us more, and can clean up our pukes, and out-of-litter box experiences, and stop us from spats, and etc, etc, etc. Any of you with large amounts of poodins should be familiar with this scenario. And Smokey needs to get a Lipoma cut out. The v-e-t believes that it is not a mast cell tumor, and will send it off for a biopsy. And Smokey is now on prednisolone because he keeps yacking, and Maw gets a wee bit tired of hearing him yacking in the middle of the night because he has IBS. And G.T. keeps having an open wound on his face because his shots for his allergies just aren't working as well as they once were, and he keeps scratching this one spot on his cheek, and it gets bloody and yucky, so he has to go get a shot at the v-e-t way too often. And Jenny is getting way too skinny, and doesn't take her thyroid medicine real well because she doesn't always eat all of her tuna joose every morning which is where the pill is dissolved and waiting for her to drink it up, and technically she should have her thyroid medicine twice a day, but that won't happen, and she is 16 1/2 now. And they are opening a Joann store in Rockwall next year so Maw is very happy about that because now she doesn't have to drive to Plano to buy fabrics for Ham-Micks anymore. And, Maw plans to have us posting a little more often than on Sundays because she will be home efurry-day!!!

Having your Maw home more is gonna be great! We love our Daddy being home...he really enjoys playing "Cat Cop" when he should be working...heh heh.
We are happy to know we'll see more of you!

We are glad we will see you more. We miss you. Mom may have to come to Rockwall when they get the new Joann's open to see the fabrics. Shw hopes it is a big one like in Lewisville or on Forrest lane!

Lots of (((hugs))) to your mom and purrs and kitty kisses to you all.

The methimazole for the hyper-t is available in a transdermal gel that you can apply to the inner ear tips or to the armpit or nipple area. Our Annie can't be pilled (she's hyper-t, was diagnosed last year at 9 yrs), and has been on the transdermal meds since. MUCH easier. Ask your vet about it or contact your nearest compounding pharmacy, one that does vet meds.

We are sorry Maw got laid off, but it sounds like she is going to be busy at home. We wish her good luck with the pet sitting busines.

Wow, taking care of you guys is a full-time job - I don't know how your human found time to work in the first place!

Sorry Maw got laid off.
I tried for the census job and was told they'd call me and never did.
Being unemployed sucks, other than getting to spend the day with the kids, of course!
But someone's gotta pay for all those treats!
Sending love & headbonks from the Purries of Purrchance To Dream & NTM too!
