So Barney went to the vets on Saturday - and he is now up to 3.5 lbs! He doesn't look fat but that seems like a lot for his age. But he does eat everything he can so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. He got his second kitten shots, and for some reason he was just terrified being there. I think that maybe he is afraid of being left again. He cried the whole trip up, and I tried to talk to him or sing to him but he kept crying and just staring at me from his carrier. Then he was shaking like a leaf while we were there - and he knows everyone there so he didn't have a reason to be afraid. But he was scared, and I am wondering if he thinks he will be abandoned again - I hope that he was just having a bad day and isn't afraid that will happen. I always worry about that when they have to go to the vet (especially if it is an overnight stay) but I worry most with Virgil and Barney since they lived there for a while. It is a great place but not a home.
Speaking of kitties who were left there, the little girl kitten who looked like Barney was adopted by a family who had brought their kitten in. I was glad because otherwise I don't know if I could have left her there again. Like I said, it is a great place and they treat the animals very well, but it just isnt' the same as having a home. I was very glad to hear that she has one now.
I have another of my awful headaches (they are always worse in summer because of allergies) so if I don't get a chance to catch up with everyone today I will try my best to do so tomorrow. These headaches are getting really old. I will also try to post some new pictures of the kitties today - Barney is learning to get into the window so I am hoping to get some of those. We'll just have to wait and see I guess!
