Updates: Zeus, raccoon, and company’s coming!

Zeus had a bad day yesterday.

The vet warned that he would likely have a bad day here and there, and then when they fall about 3 in a row, then that is when it is time.

Yesterday I started the count.

It started on Saturday night when he puked up some cat treats Jeff had just given him, followed a bit later by just froth bubbles. He went upstairs to curl up. All day Sunday he was curled up upstairs and didn’t seem to eat, drink, or use the litter box all day.

Mid afternoon I decided enough was enough and I took him outside on a leash again to cheer him (me) up.

He didn’t want to walk around, but I sat him on the porch swing with me and spent at least 30 minutes there in the fresh air. He rested and I watched.

This morning he took 4 treats from me before work. I was cautiously optimistic and thought about him all day. When I got home from work, he was totally fine again! You’d never know he had a big cancerous tumour inside him tonight!

What else is new here…

Well I’ve been taking the bird feeders inside, well putting them inside my car, every night. That surely disappoints the birds that wake up hours before I do, but we can sleep again!

Although I was too slow to do it on Saturday night and the raccoon was ON TOP of the bird feeder pole, hanging down to help himself. He’s not a very big raccoon. Really cute actually, but I’d prefer if he moved along and kept someone else awake.

What else… Oh yeah, hey, guess what?!

It’s that time of the year again. Time to wash the sheets on the guest beds, clean up the house, and get ready for COMPANY season!!

Looks like Dad will be arriving first this season, followed by my sister Julie and her friend, then Dad again with Patti-Jo. Hopefully after that I can take a trip over to visit my cousin Christine and her family in PEI, although I have no idea how will swing that with Zeus needing daily medication, and then Mom will be in PEI and maybe visiting here in August. Somewhere in the middle of all of that is a trip home for my cousin Tina’s wedding.

Full summer ahead!
