Waiting for Dr. Newton

vet visit

Time for catblogging. It had to be Silv, right? This was the scene on Tuesday morning as he nervously awaited his exam.

I am waiting, less apprehensively, for PDM to get home so we can start our weekend. I left work at 3:30 to come home and watch the second half of the basketball game. We were hanging in there, but came up short and now the season is over.

Hey, looks like PDM snuck out early too. Just heard him come through the door. Gotta go!

*sigh* Too bad he didn't get home a few minutes earlier...

Silvio is a very pretty cat

LL - I'd still have made time for catblogging. Pfthpththpthft.

Red - thanks.

HOpe that visit takes care of the problems he's been having -completely! Poor baby. But so darned cute and loveable -almost looks innocent doesn't he?

Hope Silvio is recovering well.

Your season is over. The nice thing about following several teams is that I'm assured that at least one will make the tournament. Looks like I have an easy choice this year - Illinois appears to be the only team that I care about that's going to make the Big Dance.

Jeni - he seems to be more comfortable now. But don't let the innocent look fool ya!

dr s - I was happy that we sent Clemson packing on Thursday, and yesterday's game was exciting to follow (I couldn't "watch" the first half since I was still at work but was checking a sportswriter's live blog frequently for updates).

One good thing about my team not going to the tourney is that I can be more objective about my picks. The bad thing is that we haven't had a season this bad since 1981.

Wow! Two catblogging posts in one day! That's so fabulous.

Question for cat owners. How can you tell that picture was taken at the vet's and not at home?

Answer: Because the darling cat is in the carrier with the door open.

I dread having to take the kids to the vet, because I despise having to chase Igor around the house for 30 minutes until I can catch the little bugger. Nightmare.

I was so happy that Georgia Tech had won their game on Thursday. I had no clue they lost yesterday.

Kat - your comment about the open cat carrier is spot on. I had to stuff him in there at home. At the vet's, I opened it and he came out. Did one circuit around the room, sniffing everything, then made a beeline right back to that open carrier and got in. Not so bad after all...

I hope Silvio got good marks at his exam! He does look a bit concerned

I had to get a top loading carrier, which are hard to find for some reason, since I can't get them in otherwise

and I must hide it until the very last moment and we never get out of the house

and the wailing in the car!! oh my!

Ha. Yeah, my cat can't wait to get back in the carrier at the vets. And I agree with Red, Silvio is one very pretty kitty.

Looks like the fun isn't over yet. He's going back to the vet for more tests on Monday. :-(
