Still a little off

My tummy is still a little off so I had another vet visit yesterday and they put me on some meds that worked well in the past. The antibiotics just weren't cutting it so we're trying something else. If that doesn't work we'll do more tests, so paws crossed this does the trick. 

So, funny story. Aslan likes to put his toys in the water bowl. Last night he rediscovered a red fuzzy ball that he was having a blast playing with. In the middle of the night he must have put it in his water bowl, then decided to give it to Mom (while she's asleep). She woke up thinking the roof was leaking and really confused about this wet ball in her hand. (Better than a bug — that happened once too.)

Aslan’s tuffet

It's so funny — Aslan was so unsure of this tuffet when Dad brought it home from Mom's theatre. (It was a set piece in a show and they didn't want it getting goofed up in storage so it came home for safe keeping — and cats.) Aslan would approach it like it was an intruder, pat at it, then take off. Now this is his favorite spot to be when we are all downstairs. (He's my shadow so he's usually near me.) He's awfully cute in this picture, showing off for the camera. 


A little while back I had posted about a vet visit. I've been on two rounds of an antibiotic. I'm acting more like myself and, although my litter box visits are still not quite like they should be, things are improving. Thanks for the purrs. Keep 'em coming.

These boys are such buddies. They often lay exactly the same way, and while they don't snuggle, they do hang out together. Tonight, they are fussing about how Dad almost stepped on Loki coming down the stairs. Fortunately Dad sidestepped quickly but scared the daylights out of Loki. On the plus side, they got some extra treats out of it.

Aslan is bored

Dad is having to do some continuing ed on Zoom. Aslan is not impressed with the current speaker.

Vet visit

Well I had to go to the vet today. My tummy hasn't been right and I've been having some loose, nasty-smelling poops. I've been acting ok, actually playful like the boys, and not showing any distress. But my body was telling on me. It's a good thing I went. Turns out I have colitis and haven't been digesting my food. I'm a tiny girl and really can't stand to lose much weight. I also have an ear infection, which is rare for cats but I somehow managed to do it. So I have some meds and ear drops and am back home now. On the plus side, other than my white blood cell count being high, the rest of my bloodwork came back really good — kidneys and liver both looking good.

Channeling his inner Huggy Bear

Last night Aslan snuggled up against Dad the way Huggy Bear always would, stretched out and pressed up against Dad's body with his back leg up over Dad's arm. Huggy Bear would always kick that back leg up. This was one of the first times Aslan did this and it made Dad so happy. Aslan has his moments where he reminds us of HB and Jasper so much. He's such a good boy.
