Emily here today to tell you about our weekend. First off Mom went to a nice restaurant for her Mom's birthday. The restaurant, the Mandarin, gave the birthday girl a nice cupcake with a candle.
This is Winston in his Buddha Boy pose. *whispers--he can be sensitive about this pose as the Mom often giggles and tries to pet his love handles* Anyway, the Winston wanted me to tell you that the Mom person enjoyed the buffet and was able to sample a few things she never tried before. What she liked most, though, was this!
I will close with 2 photos of the Oscar kitty. He is still at the vet's. We are still not certain what exactly was wrong. The vet did tell Mom that she has not been giving him any more of his arthritis medication. Dr. B also wants him to stay with her until the heat wave breaks. One of her other theories was that the Oscar kitty stayed in the window too long and got a bit (or a lot) overheated. The vet also mentioned to Mom that Oscar's cognitive abilities are a bit affected-not from the heat but from being a senior. Mom wasn't surprised to hear this. What she was surprised to hear, though, was that Oscar might not being seeing as well as he used to.
Mom tries to visit the Oscar kitty when she can. It's not always possible which makes her heart feel empty. BUT she did get to visit him on Sunday night. She took his favorite brush and gave him brushings for almost half an hour. Just look at the orange boy in this last photo. Mom thinks he looks better and very dignified. I wish you a very happy week. Please don't forget that you must cuddle your felines when you can.
