Ginger had his trip to the vet to have the sutures removed. My daughter ended up holding him in her arms so the vet could do it, as he did NOT want to get out of the carrier! He didn't want to get out at home, either. 😀 It was not easy to get pictures … Continue reading Ginger update: stitches are out!
After a very frustrating morning (which I will write about later) I was cheered by the wonderful and kind gift for Ginger that arrived in the mail today, from a very awesome friend. It was a Ginger warmer! It's "Great for you provides safe warming comfort zone!" Love it! And it's cover is soooo soft! … Continue reading A Ginger warmer!
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! 😀
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.

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!

Finally! We got Potato Beetle to the vet today. When I did my rounds this morning, I did let him out of the sun room. I figured it would be good for him to stretch his legs and ... do things. (The litter we had for him looked unused, but that plant pot was knocked … Continue reading The Potato is done!
First things first: the status of Potato Beetle. I have no idea. We never took him to the vet, because we couldn't find him! I did see him this morning, and should have locked him up in the sun room, but I didn't want him have him locked up like that for almost 6 hours. … Continue reading Oy, what a day!
Oh, my goodness! It is so incredibly warm out there right now! The Weather Network app on my desktop has not been working well with our intermittent internet connection, and often will not update at all, but the weather app that came with my computer seems to get through better. (Even while writing a post, … Continue reading We’re melting! Plus, vet trip arranged
