Theo’s Haiku

I’m here in the dark

Don’t know where everyone went

Meow meow me...

The New Normal

Truth be told, the driving reason behind my checking Theo’s vet visit status was I completed the adoption application process for Theo’s new siblings to join him.  I needed to provide proof he is up to date on his shots. The application process is now complete and approved. I had hoped to bring Theo’s new brother and sister home this week. Unfortunately, one of them developed an infection around the stitches following THE surgery. As a result, she won’t be ready to come home for 10-14 days.

I decided to keep them together and not bring the boy home alone because I’ve been planning the introduction process. And it involves leaving them in another room at night for the first few nights so as to acclimate them to the smells and sights of their new home while not disrupting Theo’s new normal routine too much. I’m posting this because I know those of you who read this blog probably can offer some advice about introducing cats into a new home with a cat who has lived here a long long time (16 years... I can’t believe it...) I don’t think Theo will need too much time adapting to his new siblings given he’s lived his whole life with other cats and he clearly struggled after Thompson died and now losing Diego-San too. But I’m not fooling myself there will be a period of adjustment for all of us...

Theo’s Big Day

Theo usually has his annual visit to the vet in March. I thought I had brought him in before the apocalypse began, but I looked for confirmation and couldn’t find any. So I called and the vet confirmed he hadn’t come in yet this year. So Theo had his visit on Saturday. All checked out well except some tartar on his teeth. He was pretty grumpy on the ride home. I told him the tech said he was really a friendly boy.

Happy Weekend

Theo has wide eyed expectations for a great weekend. He wishes you one too.

Since there aren’t any brothers to hug any more, Theo is improvising by hugging his own toes. (BTW he’s never been a lap cat but the past few days he has spent extensive time sitting on my lap.)

Condiment Legs

Theo noticed the black part of his leg has a pepper taste and the white part of his leg is a little salty. He was hoping they’d taste like chicken.

Theo’s Weekend

Paw bump Friday leads to Run Around Like Your Tail is On Fire Saturday that leads to snoozin Sunday. Hope your weekend is as satisfying.

Theo’s favorite water fountain broke. He spent most of the day whimpering. He hates 2020.
