So yesterday we got Barney all scheduled for his neutering. It will happen on September 23 (which is also my aunts birthday). Then I will be able to pick him up on the 25th. I am more worried about leaving him then any of the others, not because of the vets office (they love him and are wonderful with pets) but because I get the feeling that part of his insecurity about going to the vet is his worry that he won't be going home - and since he will be there for 2 nights I don't want him to be scared or sad or mad. I know it is for the best because he needs to be neutered and he will be well taken care of, but I just worry about him. I am already planning on what to send with him so he has stuff to remind him of home - his blanket, and a couple toys. Although I have to be honest that I am hoping that once he is neutered he will calm down a bit - Virgil did so I am keeping my fingers crossed. And he is becoming a man - he has started trying to, well, lets just say show dominance, over the blankets. It is not the same as when he sucks on the pillow - it is very much a mancat kind of thing - which I will admit, creeps me out just a little bit.
There is not a lot going on with the other cats - Virgil is back to his old self, and he is just happy that Virgil hasn't figured out that he could jump onto the cabinet under the TV if he tried (he can reach the kitchen counter which is about the same height). Lola is sleeping a lot - which is what she always has done. Kirzon is spending more time downstairs lately - I think he really likes the floor. Floyd is good - he had a couple of small fur mats and is now mad that I brushed them out. He is still eating well and hopefully will gain a bit more weight. I will try to get some pictures tonight, of if possible a video. I really want to get one of Virgil carying his "Da Bird" after playing. He will chase it a while, and then when he is tired he will take it and start to leave - sometimes I hold on, it flys back and he chases some more, but sometimes I just let him go - I swear watching him carry that is just one of the cutest things ever!
Oh, speaking of cute, we got the Cute Overload wall calendar this weekend - we had the page-a-day but wanted to get one of each. Virgil got to be on 2 days - October 15 and 16! We were very excited.
ETA - I have been totally bad - I keep thinking that I need to post a huge THANK YOU to Zoolatry for the new banner -they sent a couple that I will rotate through them - probably one every month.
