It was Rico’s estimated birthday a few short days ago. That’s right. My cat is 9 years old. This cat has been with me through thick and thin, so I decided to make a toy out of a TP roll for him, which Junior later ate.
Mixi had to go to the vet last week after we began to notice her itching and licking her fur like crazy and developing scabs which turned into sores. A few shots later and she’s doing well, though she still has some scabbing that needs to go away.
She was allergic to something — my best guess would be the new food we got them, which is strange because those haughty ladies on the Blue Buffalo commercial are so insistent that all other bags of food are kibble-shaped garbage.
We went back to the original Sensitive Stomach kind of Blue we had been feeding them before (but which two pet food places insisted they had never heard of when we didn’t make the drive to PetSmart). Blue Buffalo Taste of the Wild is the stuff that I think Mixi was having her reaction to.
The dogs are the dogs. Junior was neutered earlier this month. We had hoped that would keep him from humping Casey every 6 seconds, but apparently not. After Casey returned from her 2 week long vacation up north with my family, she was mounted by Junior when I looked away for a brief moment to check out a neighbour’s bonfire. She proceeded to not pee for 15 hours. (Mental.)
Jane… well, she’s somewhere around here. I took a picture of her some time around Christmas. Here it is.
So that’s all the animals. They’re hardly ever around all at the same time so no, we don’t really go nuts. We just have to Swiffer and vacuum a whole lot.
How about you? What are your animals up to lately?
