Hi Everyone! We are back after a crazy week! I haven't gotten any visiting in since last Tuesday (well, very limited) so it will be a lot of catching up for me! I ended up being sick on Wednesday night and still feel crummy today - fun! So I got almost none of the stuff I needed to do done.
The kittens had their surgeries and did great - they both need to take it easy, but it is tough to convince them of that! There was some tension in the house when they came home on Saturday but that seemed to clear up by Sunday night, which is good. I was worried because they wanted to snuggle with Barney, but he would have none of that - he would hiss and bop them, because they smelled like, well, Vet. But by Sunday evening they were doing good 90% of the time.
The other news is Kirzon is back on his ear antibiotics. I went to get him on Wednesday to eat dinner, and noticed he had rubbed off the fur on his chin (worse than Barney ever did) and it was pretty recent because he wasn't that way in the morning (he had been sleeping upstairs all day), so I called the vet Thursday, and instead of having to bring him in they just put him back on the meds. Since he is awful about taking them I asked for the ear stuff, and we will be doing a 3 week round of that for now. So keep your fingers crossed - so far he is taking that well, which is good. He is rubbing his mouth a lot though, and if he doesn't stop I may end up picking up a cone - he just can't stop (OCD kitty I guess).
Well, I didn't get anything sent out that I planned (I felt too crappy) but hope to get stuff organized this week - I did manage to finish up the collar and get a nametag for Hugo - it is super cute and I will have pictures. I had to get cat food anyway, so I was able to get the tag at the same time (I felt crappy but knew I had to at least get a couple things accomplished). Brad was great and helped out with a lot of stuff - including driving us up to the vets. Oh, can I tell you how extremely unhappy they were - Stella cried a bit but Gus was crazy - crying, trying to dig his way out of the carrier, just didn't want to be in there. Because of the surgery I wanted to be sure he didn't hurt Stella accidently so they had separate carriers on the way home, and he was just as crazy then. But once they were home they still kept going in the carriers to investigate, so they don't hate the carriers at least. So our next trip will be for Barney's annual on Sept. 11 - that should hopefully go smoothly.
Anyway, I have a ton of catching up to do both with visiting blogs and at work, so I hope to see you all soon - and I will get some pics up as soon as I can!
