Post 1696: looking and waiting for Andy…

Dougy’s picking up on me being anxious for the phone call telling me Andy’s ready to be picked up. His first clue something was afoot, of course, was when I cleaned up. It usually means I’m headed out when I put on socks and shoes! 

Andy didn’t show up outside the back window, it seems…, so Dougy moved to a scratching board to catch Andy when he walked by from the guest bedroom.

No better luck! He looked and looked toward the bedroom. What’s up? Andy usually comes by…!


Not much better for me. I picked Dougy up and located a mat. I untangled it somewhat, then this small remainder came off in my fingers. Neatly “tied” around a bundle of his soft, under arm air, this would grow and grow if not pulled apart, trimmed off, or pulled off the affected kitty boy.

Dougy does not approve!

Whew! Dougy and I are really running out of time uses till we get the call telling us Andy can come home. Pulling mats off Dougy, indeed!

Andy and Dougy spent several minutes sniffing each other, as I suspected they would. Andy helped himself to water at the water fountain, Greenies, and the litter box. Then he started hopping onto various favorite vantage points.

Both he and Dougy were fascinated with the smells on the carrier, which I left at the clinic. Dougy hopped into it, and Andy started to, then decided he’d rather perch on top of it since I’d stacked it again on top of another one, making a return of one of Andy’s all time favorite spots to perch and keep track of Dougy!

Andy’s blood pressure is down around 120 systolic, having been over 190 when I took him in. He seems cured of his urinary tract infection and the diarrhea.

All in all, Dougy and I are happy to have our little guy back home again, and he is quickly making himself at home again here!
