Norma Jean’s Question

Norma is the first girl to grace our man cave. So when I talk to her and Alias about all the great boyz that came before, she has to wonder where the bleep are my role models!?

Pins and Needles

Theo had his acupuncture appointment yesterday afternoon. He voiced his displeasure quite loudly when I put him in the carrier. He was pretty vocal at the clinic. He didn’t seem to mind the needles but was not happy when he was placed back in the carrier to allow the treatment to take effect. It’s too early to say if it helped, especially since he has been much more social and like himself the past week. But when we got home he spent the entire evening on the couch with me. He hasn’t done that in forever. He has another appointment next week.

We Got the Hots

We continue to have a stretch of hot and humid weather. Alias didn’t seem too impressed when I told him how when I first moved into the house with Mr. Max, we didn’t have air conditioning. On sweltering days we relied on a fan. Max would sit behind it because he didn’t like the air blowing on him, which meant he probably was sitting in the hottest spot.

One of Alias and Norma’s favorite spots is sitting in the big living room picture window. Yesterday I was outside with a hose watering the big ash tree. I turned the spray onto the window and they didn’t think that was at all funny. When I came back inside, I didn’t see them for an hour. I suspect they hid upstairs underneath the bed.

Needles and Neck Cracks

A chiropractic and acupuncture center for animals recently opened within walking distance of our house. In doing some research, some of Theo’s increasing ailments are what the alternative treatments are meant to address. Having great personal success with acupuncture and having gone to a chiropractor for many years, I decided I’ll see if it can help Theo too.

His appointment is next week. Theo’s actually had a pretty good week showing more energy and interest in things than he has for a long time. He even spent some time yesterday morning looking out the window, something he hasn’t done at all since Diego-San died. His appetite has been more Theo like as well. He even did the go crazy after using the liter box thing he used to do all the time. Hopefully the center will find effective treatment to help him feel better more often…
