We've been kind of quiet around here since 'tis the season of taxes. Don't worry, we take time off to watch snowflakes...
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?
Hope you enjoy your weekend!
