I had to be up early this morning and get Beowulf to the vet. It was time for his yearly checkup (already? I can't believe it's been a year since his surgery!) It went well for the most part. Beowulf HAS been rather grouchy lately and acts fussy when you pick him up at times, even crying like he is in some sort of pain and even hissing on occassion. RARE behavior for my usually well behaved boy.
When I told the vet about this he seemed rather concerned. That can be indicative of internal bruising (perhaps from a fall I didn't know about) or things like bladder infections. He didn't want to prescribe any anti-inflamatory drugs just yet but told me to keep a very careful eye on him over the next few days. Taking that seriously, I decided today was "Bring your cat to work day."
And everybody loved him. It took him a while to get adjusted and he didn't want to spend any time with ME (I think he was still upset about this morning) but he got a LOT of attention.
I left rather early in the day though to get down to my sisters. Yes, Aunt Jeanette rides again! I always love coming down. I feel like a rock star that reads stories and gives baths. And the kids love Beowulf. (S can't really play with him though...he gets all wheezy. Poor kid.) O showed me her ballet moves (so cute, they'd bring a tear to your eye,) and Hunky Hunky H toddles around saying "Aunt Annette!" (Almost...but not quite. Hey though, he's got a LONG way from "Ag Neg! a few weeks ago. Awwww...)
Now it's time for Wack a Mole with my sisters kids though. Sheesh. "Go to bed!" "I have to pee!" "Go to bed!" "I want a drink!" "No drinks! Go to bed!" "I'm scared!" "The light is on, GO TO BEEEDDDD!!!!"
I just took this picture with my sister's iSight. I like the colors.
