Andy and Dougy generally pop around at the same time for breakfast. Today, Dougy didn’t come around when Andy did, and Andy made sure to eat all the wet cat food I prepared for both kitties. Hey! It’s cold outside and a kitty needs to lay down some fat, especially a skinny kitty like Andy!
Oh well. After I fed Andy, I washed dishes. Andy parked himself by the front door. When I finished the dishes, I walked toward the dining room, hoping not to alarm Andy when I walked by.
You see, I know if I take my cane and point it at Andy, he won’t bolt, but if I just walk up to him and reach, he does. My cane was by a chair beyond the door. I picked up my cane, pointed it at Andy, and I had me a cat to dose with medicine!
Poor kitty! He was a good boy, though, and we got through the process without me having to wrap him in the towel to restrain him a bit. Yeah, I told him he was a good boy, “scritched” his ears, and rubbed his nose after he got his medicine down. Then I put out his kitty treats. He didn’t stop to eat any, though. Why would he? He’d just eaten two servings of wet food minutes before! He ran into my bedroom instead, and hid under the bed.
Oh, before you leave me naughty notes about starving poor “Chubby-butt”, erm, Dougy, let me reassure you I opened another can of trout/salmon wet food, and made sure Dougy got his breakfast, too! As a practical matter — there is dry food out if the boys want it — I had to because Dougy needs a probiotic to help him with an autoimmune issue. I put the probiotic in the boys’ wet food, all of which Andy ate earlier, eh?!
It wasn’t the smoothest start to the day, but everyone is cool now. The boys wandered off to take post-breakfast naps. I’m thinking about stopping by the Crazy Lady Bakery to buy some breakfast rolls to have with my coffee. Then, the rest of the day will happen however it unfolds. We plan to do as little as possible today!
