|Cats grow. |
|"Someone's been sleeping in my burrow."|
|Hint: not Blueberry|
|During the heat warning last week - I went outside to check on Pistachio and what should I see? But a tail inside his burrow! It's a little dark - but you can faintly see the striped tail in the middle, towards the back.|
|"I'll be leaving now."|

|"Should I be wearing a life jacket? This water is pretty deep."|

Twas the day of 119 degrees as I stepped out of the house. I wanted to see how long it would take to get baloney stains under the arms of my blouse.
My shoes began to melt as I stood in one place. I had beads of moisture on my upper lip and other parts of my face.
The perspiration trickling into my intergluteal cleft made the horror complete. I sprinted back inside to escape the odious heat.
Blueberry went into the yard and I knew how she felt, as I watched her through the window, I saw her spots begin to melt.
She is wilting and so am I. The heat is draining all of us dry.

A Story by Blueberry:
Once upon a time...I was walking in the park with my human. Across the green expanse I smelled something delicious. I led my human towards the wonderful aroma. When we arrived at the destination, there, before my very eyes, was something I have only dreamed of. An entire plate of overcooked burger patties - ON. THE. GROUND.
I was so stunned, so amazed that one of my dreams had actually come true that I stopped a few feet away to gaze upon the banquet. Sadly, that gave my human enough time to also see the dish and lead me away. For the remainder of the walk, I tried to lure her back to the plate - but she could not be fooled. I walked by there the next day and the plate was gone.
The moral of this story is:
If you ever find a plate of hamburger patties - do not stop to gaze at them - that's a rookie move. Instead, walk right up to that plate like you are the boss and gobble as many down as you are able before your human even knows what happened.

Blueberry had her SDMA test again and the vet reported that her results were completely normal this time! (PTL!!) So relieved. I did wean her off the Rimadyl during the month between tests so I have no idea if that was a factor. I have no intention of starting her on it again.
The vet did mention there is a new anti-inflammatory called Galliprant that doesn't cause the same organ damage that Rimadyl and other Nsaids can. Anyone ever hear of it? About all I know about it, is it is pretty pricey. Blueberry seems to be doing well with just her supplements, no more kibble diet (freeze-dried and frozen raw), and daily exercise for now, but it's nice to know there is an alternative to help her with pain down the road.
The vet does plan on calling the lab to see if they recommend monitoring Blueberry more closely in the future.

|My beautiful spotted friend.|
These are the dolls I made my nieces for Christmas. I had to redo two of them and was so glad when I was finished, I mailed them before taking an updated picture. How cute are they? I got the pattern from an Etsy shop!

This was taken back when it was still cool out - you know, before the heat came along and killed all the flowers. Which in a way is good, because there are fewer bees.
