My mom and I want to thank everyone for their kind comments and wishes. My mom took some time to feel sad and she has also been remembering all of the wonderful memories she has of her grandma. This is one of my mom's favorite photos of hergrandmother.
That is my mom's grandma enjoying a beer on New Year's Eve two years ago. She had a great sense of humor.
On Friday mom came home from work, changed her clothes and took me to a local vet. It wasn't my regular holistic vet, because all I needed was my kennel cough nose spray, and it would be the same one at either vet, and my regular vet is 30 minutes away. So mom thought we would just use this local vet for my kennel cough nose spray.
Well, we walked in, and right next to the door on a box was a cat, right at my eye level. We didn't even know there was a cat in the office. We walked in, I looked to my left, and that mean old cat hissed at me and I jumped back. Mom said "Oh, I didn't know there was a loose cat in here". The cat hid under the bench in the waiting area and growled at me, so mom took me to another waiting area further back. Then she noticed that there was blood around my eye, and on two other spots on my face! Mom told the vet tech and she took me in the back, and they gave me penicillin injection at no charge.
When we got home, mom took these pictures of my face:
Mom couldn't get a good picture of my eye because I kept squinting. Mom took me right back to the vet, and she stuck her head in first to see if that cat was still out. She was hiding behind the counter, but when we came in she came out and glared and growled at me. The lady behind the desk picked her up to take her in the back and that mean old cat started flailing around and hissing and spitting and scratching. When she walked past us she glared at me and hissed. I heard her say "I HATE YOU". Khyra and Ammy offered to come to Maryland and visit that vet's office so they would learn not to have such a nasty cat loose in their office. Then the vet was not very nice to my mom and acted like there was no reason for my mom to be upset. Mom told her that she should have talked to my mom when we were there the first time, and that mom couldn't help but worry since that nasty cat scratched my eyelid right where my eyelashes were, and mom was worried that my eye had been scratched. She said that cat shouldn't be loose anyway since not all dogs are good with cats, and then we left. Mom said she is going to send them a letter explaining why she won't be bringing me back, and telling them that they need to treat their clients better. Mom has been cleaning my cuts every day. The one on my eyelid is much better, the swelling went away. The ones on my face are okay, but I'm not really letting mom get a good look at them.
Then we picked Amber up and she spent the weekend with us, since her mom (my mom's mom) is out of town visiting her family.
Here is Amber trying to get me to play. I was tired on Friday night and didn't really feel like playing.
On Saturday night we had thunderstorms. Amber is really scared of thunderstorms. Meeshka's human said that putting a t shirt on Meeshka helped to calm her down during storms, so my humans decided to try putting a shirt on Amber.
The only one they found that would fit her right was one of the shirts my dad had from working as a security guard during a festival. Mom also gave Amber two melatonin pills.
She was so relaxed she fell asleep a little while later!
It was a busy weekend, so I'm going to go rest. I hope all of my blog friends had a good weekend!
