UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

A bit late with the update

So I didn't get a chance to post yesterday - I had a horrible migrane that started on the way home from the vets (the weather here is crazy).

Anyway, the drive up was interesting - Brad ended up having to go into work, so I had to bring both cats myself, and I have a small car (Mini Cooper) so it wasn't easy - I had Floyd on the passenger seat, and Barney on the floor of the passenger side (I didn't want one in back because they couldn't see me and also I wasn't sure how to secure them). Barney howled the entire drive, and he got Floyd all riled up too. I tried to call Brad so I could leave a voicemail of it - the car has bluetooth so you do everything by voice command - and it took six tries because it kept returning to the main menu from Barney meowing so much. At the vet it was all good news - Floyd is up to 15 3/4 lbs (yay) which is very good. And Barney was 5 1/4 lbs - a little bigger than Virgil was at the same age. That means that he is ready for his neutering. He will have it done in about a month when he will also get his rabies shot. Then, on the way home, Barney again yelled the whole time - he really hates the car. I tried to find something soothing for him to listen to on the radio - the only song that he calmed down during was "El Microfono" by Mexican Institute of Sound. He doesn't even speak Spanish so he couldn't understand it (I don't speak Spanish either - I just like the song).

Oh, that the other super cool news is that I won the jellybean contest over at The Casbah Kitten - very exciting.

Anyway, I will have a better post tomorrow - I am trying to catch up on the stuff I should have done yesterday, but I wanted to update on the vet visit.

YIPPEE!! Did you win jellybeans?

Mummy can relate to your pain, she has had a headache for several days now too :(

Mom said she is sorry about your poorly head ~ she gets migraines sometimes and they are HORRIBLE.

The VETS noos sounds great ~ we usually howl all the way there too ~ otherwise the Mom and Dad might think we liked going (and that wud never do!!)

Milo and Alfie said...

PS: We love the noo header ~ it's gorjuss. But there is room for one more cat or kitty isn't there? Just saying ...

We're sorry to hear about your 'my-grain'. Our Momma has those sometimes too. That's great that the VET visit went well even though the car ride wasn't such a thrill. Jane hates the car ride too and always yells and pees her pants.
We're all guessing which toy you'll choose from our shop (for winning the contest)...can't wait to see which one it is!!

When we moved from NJ to PA (2 hour drive), mom got Scooter sedatives and they didn't even work!!! She howled the entire trip! We sure do miss her. And a super B~I~G ConCats on winning the Jelly Bean contest. PAWESOME!!!

Glad the vet visit went well! And we hope your headache is better...

Sorry to hear about the headache! Our Mommy gets bad ones sometimes too, especially when the weather changes a lot. It's no fun. Hope you're feeling better.

Glad to hear the vet visits went well, even with the yelling all the way there and back in the car...

Congrats on winning the contest!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew
