Yella Fella’s New Eating Plan

Yella Fella has been on his new way of eating for one week now. This has been more difficult than expected. I’ve got him eating canned food. No problem with Yella because he loves canned food. Problem was he’d wolf down his food then try to eat the other cats’ food. At first I’d put him … Continue reading

A New Role for Hissy Fit Jones

Hissy Fit Jones is struggling to find his new role in the family. He was always the outlier. The instigator. The “I like you, but not that much,” kinda guy. Now he is finding the annoying little brother role is no longer working for him. To be sure, he still bugs the piss out of … Continue reading

Another Vet Visit for Bubba

Bubba and I visited the vet. His thyroid levels are good, but he hasn’t gained any more weight. He does look a lot better. The lesion in his mouth has healed. But there is swelling. So what does that mean? Well, we’re not sure. The vet is concerned. When she removed those teeth, he had … Continue reading

The Bubba Saga Continues…

And When it Rains, it Pours…

Because just when you thought things could not possibly get any worse… Bubba is not doing so well.     Lately he’s taken to sleeping in the bathroom closet. This morning after he ate breakfast, Bubba jumped from the sink to a shelf in the bathroom closet and napped on the towels. I had field … Continue reading

Rest in Peace June Buggie

My little ranter has died. Two weeks ago we were at the vet because he wasn’t eating. They drew blood from his jugular and felt nothing unusual in his neck. The blood work looked good. Last week we were back because he was worse. The tumor had grown rapidly, because now it could be felt. … Continue reading

June Buggie’s Latest Vet Visit

Today I took June Buggie back to the vet because he has not gotten any better. The vet found a tumor on his neck beneath his right ear. The tumor is huge- about the size of a golf ball. It’s not observable because it’s located deep. The vet said that she’s not sure if removal … Continue reading
