I had to drop my boy Jake off at the vet this morning. He had to go in to have a growth removed from his lower jaw.

The growth was around his lower front teeth, and he lost a tooth in the process. Doc also discovered he has hyper thyroid. (explains why he wouldn't lose weight.)

I can't pick him up till tomorrow after three, so, after work.

I'm lonely and I miss my fuzzy buddy.

It's not the same coming home to an empty yard.

I understand completely...

At least he'll be coming home tomorrow, and that's a good thing. As the old saying goes, "don't know what you got till it's gone".

Have fun time tomorrow afternoon. :thumbs:

He was mad at me this morning, as he got no dinner last night, no breakfast this morning and I had to take his water away. When I dropped him off, the Missus was with him till they took him in, but I had to get to work. He sure wasn't happy about it.

I expect he'll freak when I pick him up. Mom will be there to pay the bill, but he can't get in her Jeep. so I have to rush across town in rush hour to get him.

I can't wait.
I miss the little dude..

Just found out my 28 pound cat has hyper thyroidism or whatever they call it, at least we can fix it with pills. Have you ever tried to give a cat a pill twice a day, it is the definition of insanity, add that she is gigantic but not fat and its like lasoing a missile! Been getting it done but at this rate she may hurt me soon. Good luck with your dog, animals have a way of cheering you up when no one else can.

I've had plenty of experience with a cats, we've allowed a few of them to adopt us as well. We had an old guy named Fred, ended up with diabetes, he was a grand old gent, he could take down a Norwegian Elkhound with no front claws.

He was about that size too.
We moved in to a basement suite when we when in our 20's and the old fart moved right in. He refused to let us move without him, and we had him for 15 years.

Problem is Jake has problems with felines, and we can't let another one adopt us.

Sorry to here he doesn't play well with the natives. We have that same problem Bella is the cat I mentioned, she came with us from Hawaii and everywhere else the Navy sent us. The good ones find you and don't let you go, that's how you know they are worth keeping around! Hope he gets better soon, our cats weight and temper stabilized within a week and is now in great health and spirits.

Crush the pill and put it in with some food the cat really likes.  We give our Pom 1/4 pill twice a day for a cough.  Just put it with his caned food that he gets during our meals and no problem.

Funny how attached we can get to our furry friends.  We have only had Trooper a short time and I would be lost as well without him here.  Sure hope all went well with Jake's procedure and he is home resting comfortably.

I've tricked cats into there meds with tuna salmon or chicken but if they figure it out get ready for a fight our youngest cat who will be 3 this year goes after my pit ( Brutus )an puts him in his place she runs the house. I've had Brutus for almost 3 years now an would be lost without him.as a shadow.

I rushed over after work and picked him up.

 

He's home now, and in good health.

 

Sure was happy to see me.
