Can't do selfies, had to go to the vet and my eyes look awful !
Youpie !! My selfie is done
Now give me the treat !!
Usually it's always Arthur who sits or sleeps besides the ceramic cat, but now it's Rosie's turn. I thought I should paint one of them as a tuxi, so she has a twin sister !
For the moment nothing special happened, I think they all recover from the heat wave. Rosie since I was away is always talking or sleeping besides me when I watch TV. I don't remember what she whispered or shouted in my ear on this picture !
Arthur had chosen the coolest places in the house, his preference was the top of my car in the garage !
Unfortunately he didn't support the heat very well although he tried to lay in the shade, he got a sunburn on his ears which were full of crusts and his ears looked real dirty. On top of this his eyes started to water and when it dried his eyes were surrounded by a black thick line ! He didn't let me clean it, he started to run away when he only saw me with a tissue and the special lotion I had to clean his eyes.
Finally I decided to take him to a vet. Not to the usual one, because she is too soft and didn't want to treat him and on purpose ! Therefore I went to a vet clinic in Waterloo and thought there will be one vet to treat Arthur. First we, Mr. G. and I had to put him in the carrier ! Mr. G. held the carrier and I tried to push the struggling Arthur inside. With his four paws he stemmed himself against the grids, I had to take his paws of, my arms and hands were scratched, but finally he was inside ! We were both breathless and red in our faces and I was already exhausted !
In the car he sang a bit, but then stopped because he could watch the street and in fact he loves to drive in a car but not in the carrier.
We were a bit early and I put Arthur on a bench so that he could look out of the window. Which he did. He had calmed down and behaved real good !
He didn't even care about the dogs who came in and wanted to sniff at him, the cars outside were more interesting. But then he met the vet a young woman, when she tried to approach the cage, he started to behave like a wild tiger, all teeth and claws out, the hairs up the tail doubled and he pushed out terrible screams which made me think of a Hitchcock movie ! No way to treat him, she had to sedate him and I should come back in two hours.
I went home, rather worried and two hours later I picked up Arthur. He had heard my voice and meowed loud ! I payed and he stopped meowing I put him in the car and let him out of the cage ! Was he a happy cat, he immediately went behind and looked out he was again my brave, good old Arthur. Because old he is ! 17 now !
The first thing he did when we arrived home, he stormed in the kitchen and emptied his bowl !
The vet had done a full job ! Not only had she cleaned ears and eyes, but also pulled out two teeth which were rotten and had given him an antibiotic shot.
For the moment he is very quiet, eats like horse and is still the one who makes the rules in this house at least with Mr. G. !
