It was an all animal all the time day today. My cat Cookie has been diagnosed with a thyroid condition and we've started him on some pills. He's improving, but slowly. He been spending his time in the basement in a box of books, but felt good enough to venture out a little bit today. I've been taking him food, water and treats so he doesn't have to deal with the doggies.
Perhaps one reason Cookie was feeling better is because Buddy and Pepe were off getting a pre-summer trim at the dog groomers. Or as they call it, "It's a madhouse! A maaaaadhooooouuuuse!"
Here's some "before an after" shots. The first two are Buddy and the second two are Pepe.
I know they'll thank me in their own way when they're comfortable on our long noontime walks in the 90 degree heat. Buddy particularly, because he's been known to just spontaneously lie down frog-style with his belly in the cool grass when he gets too hot. That yak-like coat of his must be really warm.
And just for fun, I decided to make a little video of Lisa feeding the goldfish in our goldfish pond. When watching, keep in mind Quint's immortal lines from "Jaws": "A shark's got lifeless eyes, like a doll's eyes. When it comes at you, it doesn't even seem to be livin'." I don't think these guys are far removed from ol' Bruce the Great White.
