Diego's Big Adventure

Diego-san had his annual visit to the vet last Friday (not pictured here as I forgot my phone). The news wasn’t so good. He’s down a pound and a half from last year. I knew he probably had lost weight because he rarely finishes his meals anymore and sometimes I have to bribe him with treats in order to get him to eat anything.

The vet wants to do more extensive testing which I will get scheduled in the near future. I also asked him to check Diego-san’s anal glands since those have been an ongoing issue the past few years. Sure enough they were plenty full and one of them was blocked. Hopefully having the glands expressed will help him feel better and improve his appetite. He also clearly now likes wet food more than his dry food so I’m going to try to feed him more and more of that. Both he and Thompson are 16 years old now so I knew the day of declining health was coming. Still, all this makes me very sad. I’ve really enjoyed my time with all of the boyz and hope there are many more days together in our future...

Puddle Boy

When the heat rises, Diego-san turns into a puddle albeit a pretty handsome puddle.

The weather forecast for this weekend is for it to be extremely hot and humid. Sounds like the perfect weather to be lazy and nappy. Oh wait, that's usually the case around our house for any type of weather.

The other day a raccoon climbed up a building in downtown St. Paul that is about a dozen minute drive from our house. She made it up to the 23rd floor and perched herself on a window ledge and became a trending topic on Twitter. The raccoon finally worked her way up to the roof where they got her to go inside a trap that had cat food inside. I warned Theo not to get any ideas about climbing skyscrapers in hopes of getting a treat.

Mutually Equal Confusion

Theo is often confused by the behavior of his ape/oaf-food guy. His ape/oaf-food guy has to admit he is often equally confused by the behavior of his little tuxedo friend.

Limber Enough

Over the past several years, Thompson has lost his ability to jump up on high things. He however retains the ability to touch his nose to his leg.

Diego Code

It appears Diego-san is lying in some weird mathematical shape to signal somebody something.
