Diego-San listened into a conference I presented at. He eventually had to make an appearance too and the moderator recognized him. What the audience didn’t get to see was Theo hacking up a massive hair ball in the middle of my presentation.

Good Weekend

Diego-San had a pretty good weekend. He ate all his meals and yesterday he ate a ton of food, more than he’s eaten for a long long time. Hopefully this will continue for a while.

Give Me a W

Theo wanted me to take the picture from behind him so his leg and arms would be forming a “W” for weekend instead of a “M” for meekend. Good help is hard to find.

Thank You

Diego-San and I appreciate all the kind words and thoughts. We definitely will look into all the suggestions to help him avoid future visits to the vet... He still is acting subdued from yesterday’s events but he seems to be moving better and he ate a little bit today...

Health Report

It’s been a rough couple of months for Diego-San health wise. He has good days and he has bad days. Days when he doesn’t eat anything and is lethargic and other days when he’s super amorous and attention seeking.

Last week he had a few bad days in a row so I called to make an appointment at the vet. The soonest they could get him in was yesterday. He perked up a little over the weekend but I kept the appointment. Turned out he was really constipated again and his anal glands (a lifelong problem) needed to be expressed (the vet said they were the size of grapes- she had never seen anal glands so swollen. So I left him at the vet and they expressed the glands and gave him an enema. I’m going to have to do a better job at monitoring his ‘output’ to see when he’s getting constipated...Diego-San avoided me the rest of the day... I don’t blame him.

P.S. I was a little surprise at Theo. He didn’t seem at all concerned about Diego-san’s absence during the day. Usually when I drag one of the boyz off in the dreaded carrier the other(s) gather and seemed alarmed to be minus one. And when all are back home everyone in the house traditionally gets a treat to reward all the trauma. Theo didn’t seem to even notice Diego-San was gone. And upon our return he smelled his brother but then went about his routine.

Helping Paw

He’s got the whole world in his paw, he’s got the whole world in his paw...

Pre Summer Days

Have a stretch of hot and humid days. But the boyz don’t mind as long as there is sun. Lots of sun.

Tuckered Out

Doesn’t happen often but Theo’s gas tank finally hit empty.

Diego-san’s battery was running low so he decided to plug in for a while.

My Lil Special Fella

Yes, he often sits like this. If not the tongue, there sometimes is a spit bubble dribbling from his lips.

Lazy Cat

Diego-San likes to sit on my mouse pad while I’m trying to do my work. How lazy can a cat be? Expecting a mouse to come to his pad?

Today’s Lesson

The boyz would like to teach the difference between vertical and horizontal.

The Office

I’m back to working from home after working the past two weeks at the office. We’ll see how the boyz adapt. We had a Zoom office social last week and I got to see some of my co-workers non human roommates (all of them dogs). Unfortunately since I was at the office the boyz didn’t get to join in.

Epic Fight

Theo fought valiantly but ended up losing his battle with his favorite scratching mat.

Meme Lost

Theo did a face plant playing with one of his toys. Diego-San checked to make sure I got it on camera. I did not. Diego-San is disappointed.

Bring on the Locusts

It’s hot and humid out, the perfect weather for a tornado. Which would seem in the works given all the rest of what’s happened the past few weeks.
