Waffles is Packing - And a Happy Katie Update

WAFFLES:  Are you packed yet, Boss? 


KATIE:  We're not leaving until Thursday, Waffles. There's plenty of time to pack later. 

WAFFLES:  But we need to make sure we don't forget anything. 

KATIE:  Or anyone.




Katie & ETA Update
Thank you so, so much for your sweet and heartfelt comments for Katie. She is feeling much better after her vet visit on Monday. It was a rough day for everyone...as it turns out, Katie had a pinto bean-sized "stone" that had to be expressed from her anal gland. Yeah, it was as horrifying as it sounds. But fortunately the relief came very quickly. She's starting to eat her regular food (and some chicken baby food as a special treat) and has returned to her regular routine of window watching and sun bathing. She was very quick to forgive Glogirly for the sudden trip to the cat clinic.

It was a 2 for 1 and Waffles got his annual wellness exam while we were there. He's a strapping, healthy 10 1/2 pound hunk of a mancat. 

We're very thankful we were able to see a vet Waffles and Katie are familar with here in Minneapolis. She's incredibly gentle, thoughtful and goes above and beyond to make even the most scared kitties as comfortable as possible. 

We've revised our travel itinerary and plan to leave for Colorado this Thursday if all goes well.

  13. I can't imagine how she felt with that "stone" in there. Ringo needs his glands expressed regularly, but we've not had any problems with that. Safe travels tomorrow!
