More Shots

I had to go to the AARF House this evening to get my second round of distemper shots. Ginger came home from work, put me in that awful carrier and then took me down the stairs. That tiny little animal they call Leroy (or is it just a really large rodent...I just can't tell...) was crying and I guess Ginger felt like she should comfort it. She put me on the table so that my friend Buster couldn't get to me (they try to keep us separated, but we talk and hold hands under the crack at the bottom of the door all the time). Ginger sat down with Leroy for a minute and when she turned around, this is what she found:

That Buster. He's just so funny.

Anyway - we got in the car (I HATE the car!) and went over to AARF. We had to wait a really long time this time. Ginger said she left the car running the whole time for me so that I wouldn't cook once we got back in the car. YIKES! I'm glad she did that! I'm also glad the car was still there when we got back out. That would have been most unfortunate to have had to walk back home.

I'm two-thirds of the way done with my distemper shots now. At least I think I am anyway. Surely there are no more than three rounds of shots; that would be preposterous. This last shot wasn't so hot. It really hurt me!

While we were there, Ginger also talked to someone about getting me "fixed." I don't know what this means; I'm not broken! Whatever it means, I think it's going to happen soon. I hope I won't have to get back in the car to do it, but I have a feeling I will. I would feel a whole lot better about all of this if I at least knew I had a home to go to... Doesn't someone want to adopt me? I really am charming. Let me prove it to you!

I just got this picture from Matt - isn't it the cutest???

(what sweet little boys!)

A few days after Ben and Obi went home, I got an email from Meghan. In the preview, all I saw was "Hi Ginger, Unfortunately Obi isn't adjusting very well..." My heart just sank! But don't worry! They weren't giving up! Meghan said that he acted pretty scared and hid under the couch a lot. She just wanted to know if he did this at our house. Well...he lived in a bathroom when he was with us so there wasn't a whole lot of room for shyness, but he always was the most reserved. Meghan figured he just needed a little time to adjust, and I figured she was right.

Wasn't I excited the next week when I got this email a week later:

Hey Ginger-

So much has changed in the past week! On Friday we noticed that by the end of an evening that Obi was relaxing and playing much more so we decided not to put the boys back into the bathroom for overnight- and then the next day being Saturday the boys were out all day. The "old" shy Obi was gone by nightfall! I wouldn't say he was as crazy as Ben but he is now playing and snuggling with us on a regular basis. :)

"No Ben" has probably become the most used phrase in our household. Everything and anything that he is NOT supposed to get into- he is. But he is making us laugh constantly. I can't count the number of times he has fallen off the sofa/toy because he gets distracted by something across the room.

Both boys have become super loud purr-ers but their voice box still needs some working on as their meows are still very sad and scratchy sounding.

I attached a picture that Matt caught earlier in the week that I thought was super cute- the boys look like they are hugging each other (I actually think they both might still have ear mites cause they are always digging at each others ears- they go back to the vet next week)

Until next time!


(this was the attached pic - labeled "brotherly love")

And, geesh! Those darn eat mites! Hopefully the vet got rid of those!

What a great update!

Miss. Tuesday on Petfinder

Take a look guys! I'm on Petfinder! There's so much talk lately of people finding love online, I decided I would have to check it out. I sure do hope somebody sees what a great addition I could be to their family.
