When someone comments on how Dougy and Queen Elizabeth II have a resemblance, I have to laugh! They do!
Of all the things said about the Queen, “floofy” probably is the least likely. Thanks, jesuisleroisoleil , for pointing this out. I will start to show a little respect for my little monarch in future!
Update on the veterinarian appointment yesterday, October 15th: The kitty boys were pills when it came to being caught and put in the carrier, but they redeemed themselves at Doctor Dave’s.
Andy was the perfect patient, putting up with the blood pressure cuff without a protest. Dougy let me hold him the whole time Andy was on the examination table till it was his time for shots. It was the longest time ever I’ve held him!
Andy puts his head on my shoulder when we have our quality time before I give him his medicine. Awww!
Both are about the same weight as they’ve been for all their adulthood, which surprised me since they hit those kitty treats with great enthusiasm.
As for Andy’s blood pressure, he is high normal (134 +/- systolic), so continues on the same dosage of his medicine. He “gets” to visit Doctor Dave again in April for a follow-up. Doctor Dave says he has a new medicine that may help bring it down more if it looks like Andy needs it in April.
