In the doghouse

Well, it’s sort of been a rough few days.  I had an upper respiratory infection and was on medicine for a couple of weeks.  Mom didn’t want me going outside.  Now it’s been raining so I can’t go outside.  That gives me cabin fever…..or so Mom says.

That has me totally confused.  You humans sure do say some really strange things.  Is this how you know a cabin has a fever?  Do you put the thermometer in the chimney?  We don’t even have a cabin so how could I have cabin fever?  No wonder I don’t know what’s going on!!!!

Anyway, you know that Mom had a big fight with bees not too long ago.  She had to be on medicine but she’s just fine now.  However, one night during that time, I was calmly sleeping on her head, listening to her snore.  (MOL)  Suddenly I had a “catmare” and it scared me so much that I jumped up and launched myself off of Mom’s face.  Yep…..you guessed it.  My claws managed to leave marks on her face and she started bleeding.  I felt so bad.  I couldn’t help it that I got scared.

So, I scratched Mom and then I’ve been busy knocking things off of shelves, tables, bookcases, desks, and whatever else is handy ‘cuz I have this “cabin fever” bug.

Do any of you have these problems?

Howdy, Readers!  This has been a fabulous day for me.  When Mom got home from work she was kind of acting funny.  She was being super nice to both of us.  Wait, that sounded wrong.  Mom’s always nice to us.  However, I was thinking she was up to something.  I was right.  Next thing I knew I was in the car and we were heading to the doctor lady’s house.  Mom kept telling me not to worry.

Here I am trying to melt into the chair in the waiting room.

Here I am trying to melt into the scale.  Would you believe I fell asleep in here?  Mom was real proud of me ‘cuz I’m down to 19 pounds now so I’m a slim, trim, dude!

Doctor Lady

Here’s the doctor lady looking at where my tooth used to be.  I let her do that without any problems.  Mom told me I was real good.

for me

When I got home, Mom said there was a surprise for me.  I actually got something in the mail!  Steinbeck thought it was for him, too.  However, it was just my name on the envelope.

Hiding

Here I am protecting my mail from others!

Tooth Faiy Gifts

These are my neat gifts from the tooth fairy.  Of course Steinbeck thought he should check everything out as well.

Steinbeck pouncing

Here’s Steinbeck “pouncing” on one of they toys.

Here I am protecting one of the toys.  If you notice on my leg, that’s where they shaved off my fur.  It’s growing back nicely.

So that was my Monday.  Not bad!  I hope all of you had a super Monday, too.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom doesn’t know I’m up here writing to everyone.  I think she’s taking a nap.  She got older so she gets tired more now.  Kind of like us!

Anyway, I wanted to give you kitties a lesson on how to really frustrate your mom when she’s trying to give you a pill.  Mom always brags about how mellow I am and how I just don’t get uptight about anything.  Well, if I’m going to have to take a pill, it’s going to be in my time and in my own way.  Mom learned that the hard way.

Last night she got home from work and she started trying to give me my pill.  I would not cooperate at all.  She kept trying and trying and I kept spitting it out.  This went on all night.  She even tried putting it in yogurt and ice cream but I ate all around it.  I could tell she was getting frustrated ‘cuz she kept mumbling to herself.

Four hours later I still didn’t have the pill inside me.  Mom decided to take a break and read her emails.  She set my pill on the computer desk in front of the monitor hoping it would give her inspiration.  Before long I jumped up on the computer desk, looked at her, walked over to the pill and took a sniff………….and then I just ate it all up.  Down it went into my tummy where it was supposed to be.  MOL!!!!  Mom just looked at me with her mouth open!!!

So now your lesson on frustration is done.  Oh, there’s another pill that has to go down me tonight.  I’m not sure what I’ll do this time!!!

Today was my big trip to the hospital.  I saw it on the calendar so when Mom tried being sneaky about it this morning, she wasn’t fooling me.  I played, “catch me if you can” thinking if I made Mom really late, they wouldn’t be able to do surgery.  It didn’t work.  I was over at the doctor’s house bright and early.  Even though they pretended to be super happy to see me, I was afraid something bad was going to happen.

What really scared me was when Mom left me.  She walked right out that door to her car and forgot to bring me with her!!!  The nerve!!

Well, even though it was a scary day for me, I was really good.  Here’s a picture of me when I was ready for surgery.  Notice that nobody has to hold me?  I’m always Mr. Mellow at the doctor’s house and they just love me.  Now my little brother is an entirely different story!

All Done

They gave me some stuff to go to sleep so I wouldn’t feel anything.  This is a picture of me off in dreamland.

Hemingway Ready for Surgery

I’m glad to see they had me all snuggled in.  They said I did really good through the whole procedure.

Hemingway after surgery

Here I am after surgery.  My eyes look a little droopy but they’re wide open now.  Mom was so happy to see me.  She said they took care of two teeth….one on each side.  At least I’m still balanced.  MOL!!!

I just wanted everyone to know that I’m doing great.  Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes.  Poor little Steinbeck was really confused since I was gone all day.  I don’t think he knows what happened yet.

Mom sends a big thanks to the doctor lady for taking pictures of me while I was there so I could share them on our blog.
