Happy Friday! We had an unplanned vet visit with Dexter this week. You can read about it below, but the test results came back with pancreatitis. Hopefully, it’s just a mild case and won’t turn into chronic pancreatitis. He’s been fine since returning from the vet on Monday, so that’s good!
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Pretty holiday tortie! See that bell on the tree? I place them on the lower branches so I can hear when the cats are saying hello to the tree. Do you have any holiday tree hacks? #lifewithcats
Harley: Excuse me, Mama. Did you say it’s snack time?
Mama: No, I said it’s nap time.
Harley: Snack time, got it.
Mama: Nap time!
Harley: Right! Snack time.
Mama: Nap time.
Harley: I don’t know why you keep repeating me. SNACK. TIME. We’re agreed!
Woodrow: ∗gasp∗ Are these all for me, Mama?
Sophie: No, I’m pretty sure these all say for Sophie.

The cats will be sad when all of the presents leave the house tomorrow, off to be delivered to a local family in need. But don’t worry, I’m sure Santa won’t forget about the cats. 🎁🎄
Um, No Thanks
Mama: You coming out?
Dexter: Yeah, that’s a hard pass.
Mama: You sure?
Dexter: Well, maybe just a peek. ∗peek∗
Mama: Whatcha think?
Dexter: Please refer to my first answer. Now, zip me up and let’s go home!
We had an unplanned vet visit first thing this morning. Dexter has been vomiting for the last 24 hours (picture the movie The Exorcist). Hopefully, it’s just a bug. Nothing obvious at the vet. They gave him something to settle his tummy, fluids for dehydration and anti-nausea meds. We also did some blood work and will have results tomorrow. Since he’s been home, he’s eaten twice and kept it down. Right now he’s curled up in his bed and napping on this cold and windy day.
Volume up! 🔊 Sophie brought me Eddie’s sweater (our dog). I think she’s telling me it stinks and to wash it. At the end, she’s saying “gross”. 😹
Mama: ‘Scuse me, you’re in my spot.
Dexter: It’s so cozy.
Mama: Yeah, I’d like to be cozy there.
Dexter: You’re really missing out, Mama. I can’t believe how comfy this spot is.
Mama: I’ll be back in 10 minutes. My spot better be there.
Dexter: Your spot will be here, but so will I!
Thank you for all the well wishes for Dexter and his trip to the vet on Monday. The test results came back with pancreatitis. Since returning from the vet, though, he’s had no more vomiting and is eating well. So hopefully, it’s just a mild case and won’t turn into chronic pancreatitis. For now, we’re monitoring him (and letting him sit wherever he wants to, of course).
Olive: Mama, would you look at that?
Mama: What’s wrong now?
Olive: The delivery guy. He’s going to the wrong house! That looks like the box I ordered.
Mama: How can you tell what’s in the box?
Olive: Who cares? It’s the box I want.
Mama: Oh, right.
Olive: Look at how perfect it is! Exact right angles, no damage, structurally sound. I need that box, Mama!

This is Oliver the office cat at the vet. He’s so helpful with checking in clients.
Have a wonderful weekend!
