Shared Puddle

Taking in a sun puddle together, Norma watches Theo do his yoga.

Dirty Clothes

Norma continues to enjoy sleeping in my clothes hamper. I wish I could teach her to throw the dirty clothes in the washing machine, dry them and then fold them. Alas, I don’t think she’s interested in all that.

Theo and Norma have spent some time together the past two days. This is highly unusual. I think she knows he’s feeling under the weather and wants some company.

Monday, September 26, 2022


Theo began taking medicine for his hyperthyroidism on Monday. He didn’t eat for the next four days. Friday, I called the vet and got an appetite stimulation drug prescribed. The medication is applied by rubbing it on the ear. It must have smelled interesting because Alias and Norma tried hanging around their tired brother. 

Theo did try to eat a little bit that evening but he threw everything he ate up. Saturday morning his full appetite returned so I haven’t had to apply the new medication since that first time. I stopped with the thyroid medication on Wednesday but the vet suggested Friday I try giving Theo a lower dose. I haven’t resumed that yet because I want Theo to eat several meals first. Hopefully we’ll figure all this out and keep Theo feeling as well as possible.

Happy Anniversary

Two years ago today, I met Alias and Norma for the first time when I visited them in the foster home…
