Here's a shout out to Anthony! I have enabled non-registered users to comment on my blog. So if this has been holding you back, any of you, now is the time to speak up!
We went to see the vet last night, presumably so Brookline could have her stitches taken out but it turns out that wasn't the case. They used surgical glue for the outside stitches - keeps kitties from chewing them out. The appointment was really to tell us what kind of stone was removed from Brookline, what diet changes need to be made - a gradual shift to all canned food except when we go away on vacation, and to see how Brookline was doing. Her weight is still a little low, only 7.5 lbs but otherwise she is back to her old self. My other car, Erin, will be thrilled that we're switching to canned food - just hope it doesn't make her fat! Many, many thanks to the Alexandria Animal Hospital for their excellent care. The doctors and staff have been wonderful.
Tonight is the night - finally. Tanjina is coming over for dinner and after we eat our fill of chicken curry and coconut rice, we'll begin. Max will probably make himself scarce afer dinner... something about being made fun of... I don't know what he's talking about!
