The Bubba Saga Continues…

The Bubba Saga continues. Taking care of Bubba is a full-time job. Fortunately I have been doing a lot of working from home lately so I could be here to take care of him. There was a flea issue. I had applied Revolution to each cat. But the vet found fleas on Bubba two weeks … Continue reading

A Tale of Two Doctors

Bubba wasn’t eating. Again. So this morning I loaded him up and back to the vet we go.   Dr. M. looked him over, then checked his teeth. Yes, he had a bad one. So she did a blood panel to make sure he was OK for surgery, then I left him there for her … Continue reading

June Buggie’s Latest Vet Visit

Please Keep Buggie in Your Thoughts

Tiny Little Furry Monsters

I have created monsters! Tiny little furry monsters. When Rumpy had pneumonia, I started feeding him chicken to get him to eat. Now he insists on it. I mix it in with kibble and he eats all the chicken and most of the kibble. Otherwise he won’t eat his dog food. Now Bubba has decided … Continue reading

Living with Cats

I talked about how Rumpy is such a comfort to me since the election. But there are also cats that live in this home who are keeping me on the straight and narrow. I don’t have time to wallow in anger and hurt; I have two elderly cats with hyperthyroidism who are always hungry and … Continue reading
