With Georgia crossing to the Bridge I figured my little trip to the VET wasn't all that urgent to report. But mum took me in Wednesday night for my annual checkup. I got two shots in the bum, one a three year rabies and one distemper. I don't have a temper, why do I need that shot?
Now I am a good kittie, I go right into the carrier and I talked to mum all the way there. Mum timed it so she got there just before our appointment time. However, they were running behind and I had to wait in my carrier, surrounded by woofies. Mum sat with me as far away from those beasts as we could, but one woofie kept trying to get close. His bean said he had kitties at home to play with so wanted to play with me. I didn't want to play with him! I did lots of growling and hissing while I was there, even after I was back out in the car on for the trip home. The woofie Dad was parked next to our metal monster, he said he had never heard a kittie growl like me.Nothing wrong, just the rooster shots and home. Mum gave me some stinky goodness to cheer me up, then I just curled up on my nice bed to rest and pretty much stayed there all night. When mum got up she was worried that I hadn't come into the sleepy room to watch birdies first thing. I am fine, just keeping to myself. I have joined her this past evening on the couch, to mooch treats and get my scritches.
Flowers, our lilacs are in full bloom. Since I would eat them, mum goes out and does great big sniffs of the flowers. She loves lilacs and this dark purple one is one that mum got a start from Grampie's old house.
The crabby apple tree is just about done flowering too, we have pink confetti all over the groundMum saw and heard Mr Oriole singing the other night way up in our tree. We still can tell they are eating the fresh orange halves mum puts out. So we are hoping they stay around and bring babies.
The BlueBird of Happyness is here too. Mum says it is an indigo bunting. Victor said he has seen these guys too at his house. Mum has seen them before, but like once and then not again. We saw one the day we first saw the Orioles, then again twice this week at different feeders.
Here you can see Mr Bunting feeding with Mr Goldfinch. Mum is happy to see these guys around too. Must mean they like our yard and our foods. They entertain me too!
