We did not get the predicted thunderstorms last night, though we did get rain. While I was out doing my morning rounds, I could hear thunder around us, and it was even starting to rain a bit by the time I was done. So, no work was done on the garden bed I'd started on … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: the weather was not willing
Before I get into my topic, here's a Ginger picture for you to enjoy! I interrupted his nap! 😀 Such a sweet baby boy he is! 🙂 Now, onto less fun stuff. I mentioned in my last post about our garden progress, that I'd showed photos of the pea beds to my mother. As expected, … Continue reading Never quite good enough, and bigger concerns
The outside cats were, as usual, very excited about that whole "food" thing. 😉 The super shy one was even down to "shy" instead of "super shy". 😀 Usually, she'll peek in between the shelters, see me and run off. Not this morning! She actually joined the buffet while I was still there! Then she … Continue reading Getting brave, and why do I hurt?
The Ginger bug is learning to enjoy us humans! After we gave him his morning medications, my daughter held him while I checked the incisions. While giving him his medications last night, one of my daughters noticed a discoloration, but he would not let her take a closer look. He was more cooperative, this morning. … Continue reading Ginger update: morning cuddles
I visited Ginger this morning, while starting my morning rounds and before my daughter came over with his medications and the new surgical shirt. He enjoyed the visiting part, at least! I even managed to get several usable pictures. Doesn't he look completely malevolent? 😀 He's actually really enjoying the scritches. Then he started rolling … Continue reading Ginger bug update: not a happy camper! 😀
I think Ginger is doing just fine... We can check on him, without disturbing him, through the bathroom window at any time. This morning, we forgot to unplug the heater bulb, and my husband found him basking under it! As the sun room warmed up during the day, however, he moved to follow the sun … Continue reading Ginger update: livin’ the life!
This morning, I went ahead of my daughter to visit with Ginger, so I could first give the outside cats some warm water. There was a slight delay on that. Since we took the extension cord that was providing power to the cat house, so it wouldn't be in Ginger's way, the heated water bowl … Continue reading Ginger update and… that was weird!
The Ginger bug is home again!! With his silver, space age bandage, too! 🙂 He seemed very happy to be out of the carrier and in familiar territory. He is quite active - a little too active! and moving around better, now that he doesn't have that leg dangling off his shoulder. Did I mention … Continue reading Baby’s Back!
This post falls into the full disclosure and transparency zone. I just got a call from the vet clinic, this time about the bill. They were able to give us two estimates, depending on how long the surgery took and how complicated it might get. Those estimates included the examination and x-rays we'd brought him … Continue reading Ginger update; more good news
We have good news! Image source We just got a call from the surgeon at the vet clinic. The surgery went very well. His heart rate was steady the whole time, and there was minimal bleeding. When she called, he was starting to try and lift his head. And yes, he got snipped too, so … Continue reading Ginger, sliced and snipped!
