Hello. Oscar here. I'm posting a photo of me from a few years ago. I was making sure the Mom person was studying. I can't jump up on the table anymore to supervise, though. So....Mom took me to the vet on Friday for a once over. Mostly, though, because I was sitting funny. My front leg shoulder was jutting out at a bit of an odd angle sometimes. The vet examined me and said this was because the muscle there was wasting due to my age. That vet sure does like do go on about my age. Not only did she insult me about that but she poked, prodded and made me suffer through various other indignities which I won't mention. She did, however, say that I had gained a bit of weight and that I looked better than I had on my last visit. The Mom person was a bit relieved to hear that. Guess what?! I got two catnip toys for that visit. Purrwowza! Emily and Winston ended up fighting over one of the nip toys.
We have had such a dry spell here. The grass is yellow and withered and some of the leaves are falling from the trees. However, that changed a few days ago with some fierce thunderstorms. Mom snapped this photo on the way to an appointment. Thankfully, she missed getting soaked!
This is a view of the sunset from out living room window! After the rain comes the sun!
Some nice fresh tomatoes at the farmer's market.
The courtyard garden after a nice summer rain soaking. Don't worry. I haven't forgotten Bonnie and Clyde! (yeah I know that is not their real names!) Other than fighting over my nip toys they are up to their usual silliness!
I'll close with this photo of Miss Emily. The cat dancer toy is her favorite but for some reason the little feather toy at the end of the pole is gone! I guess my catnip toy never stood a chance.
Purrs to all for a great week.
