We know we've been quiet and not visiting much so we wanted to let everyone know that all is well here. We actually enjoyed a weekend away from tax returns with open windows and sunpuddles...
Mommy thinks I'm so cute with the sun lighting up my ears and I have to admit, she's right. Anyway, the countdown is on for tax season to end so we can resume our normal schedule of napping and playing instead of working. We're sorry to be scarce but the end is in sight.
We've been kind of quiet around here since 'tis the season of taxes. Don't worry, we take time off to watch snowflakes...
We've also been quiet since we've all had to go to the vet for our check ups. I had a follow up blood test after the one I got for my dental last fall showed I was close to having hypothyroidism. Well, now I do have it. Since I turn into the Tasmanian devil when given a pill, I have to have stuffs put on my ear every day forever. Because this isn't as easy to regulate as a pill, I'll be tested more often to see how I'm doing.
Isabella's exam showed that she's dropped in weight from 14.75 lbs to the same size as me - 11.2 lbs. Turns out she's hyperthyroid too! None of us would've thunk it! She'll get pills every day forever since she has no teeth but she'll swallow it in half a pill pocket. A whole pill pocket is too big to swallow. Other than us both being hyperthyroid and Isabella having asthma, our tests showed we're healthy and doing well as senior kitties!
As for Lexi, her exam was fine. She's 57 lbs and just plain hyper. She'll be spayed soon but the vet suggested she go through a heat cycle first. Oh joy. He said that waiting decreases hip and joint problems, however, it also increases her chance of cancer from 1% to 5%. Since the hip issues are more likely, she'll probably have to wait. Whenever it's done we're all hoping it calms her down. She's been in obedience school for five weeks and will officially flunk out at her final class next week. That is if Daddy takes her. It's not that she's a dumb dog like Bella and I think she is, because actually she's super smart. It's because she's too friendly and wants to play with the other dogs and their peeps. She listens to Daddy as long as he has treats but she knows when he runs out so does the doggy version of "lalalalala, I can't hear you!" Let's just say, she better be glad there's a room full of witnesses! Anyway, she's a pawful in public and we're hoping she grows out of it. Soon.
That's the update on what's going on around here. What's new with you?
