Well, Johnny had his appointment with Dr. Aluni at 2:30 this afternoon and he got a clean bill of health. He had a bad tooth that had to come out and it did, very easily. The crown of the tooth was already cracked. The vet took his little clamping tool and the whole tooth came right out.
I’ll have to give Johnny antibiotics twice a day for a week, but at least his overall health is excellent.
You might get a kick out of this. Dr. Aluni is kind of a character. He started asking me questions.
Dr: “Is she eating regularly?”
Me: “Yes he is.”
Dr: “Is she using her litter box?”
Me: “Yes he does.”
Dr: “Does she like kitty treats?”
Me: “Yes, he loves them.”
Dr: “Do you know how much she weighs?”
Me: “He weighs about 9 pounds.”
Dr: “Does she drink a lot of water?”
Me: “Some days he does.”
Dr: “Does she have a lot of energy?”
Me: “He has plenty of energy.”
The questions went on for about another 5 minutes or so. Dr. Aluni gave Johnny his first dose of the antibiotics. Just as I was leaving the office, the doctor turn to me and said “Those antibiotics will probably make HIM sleep. HE might even give you a break tomorrow morning.”
He finally got it right… ?
The funniest thing happened this morning. I wish I could have gotten a video this time. I did get a video of it sometime ago, but I lost it.
Johnny has this thing he does with his hind legs. He’ll backup to the door and he will rap one foot against the door 4 or 5 times, and then he’ll do the same thing with the other foot. It’s the craziest thing.
Last night I committed the one unforgivable sin in my household. I ran out of kitty treats. I think I’ve been spoiling him a little too much because he wants kitty treats.
To get my attention, Johnny backed up to me and started rapping his foot against my ribs. I busted out laughing. It was all that I could do.
Johnny is going to the vet this afternoon for his shots and his annual wellness exam. I told him that if he’s a good boy at the vet, and he usually is, I’ll see if I can’t get my driver to stop so I can pick up another supply of kitty treats.
I gave him a big hug and a kiss on top of the head. At the moment he’s licking the skin off of those ribs.
What can I say? I love my little dude.
These kids are in for a rude awakening. There is no such thing as a safe space in the real world. Any university with safe spaces is truly a misnamed nursery that is overcharging.
