Whilst I was going through last year’s photos, looking for all of the pictures of my finger, I found some photos and some videos of Logan going to the vet in the middle of all of it. Full disclosure, I have used some of these photos of Logan in a previous post, but the videos are all new.
My Facebook post from 15 September: Logan was a little listless and had no appetite (to the point where he wouldn’t even eat treats!) the past couple of days, so, paranoid overprotective mom that I am, I managed to get a vet appointment this morning. Feel a bit silly now. This weekend is claw clipping, which also includes ear cleaning for the LunaTicks, and bum checks and teeth cleaning for the boys. So this morning I figured, start with Logan, so he’ll have nice short claws at the vet, right?
So I get to the tooth cleaning bit in the routine, and… yeah, super loose premolar and slightly bleedy gums. Teething! 45 minute (each way) bus ride to Skultorp… well, at least they didn’t charge me, and it’s better to have him checked out, especially before a show!
Anyway, here’s Logan in the exam room, showing off his grumpy old man voice. I think he sounds like Walter Matthau.
Watching these videos and looking at these photos, I can see how different Logan and Izaak are. They look alike…but they are still so different.<
For this video, I posted: Logan is getting pretty good at leashing…and he knows where he lives!
Compare Logan walking home to Izaak walking the same route. He has to be under my feet!!!
(Okay, it wasn’t after midnight. It was about 22:30. But still.)
After we said good-bye to Logan, Alfred and I took the 20:03 train home to Skövde. On the way from the bus stop to our apartment block, I like to let whichever cat is with me to walk home. Jacoby loves doing that. So I let Freddy out of the carrier, and we walked together.
They are a little blurry, of course, because we were both moving, but I like them anyway.
Hey! That’s the wrong way!
I am also happy to report that after he explored the sandpit at the foot of the slide near our building, Freddy did not “use” it.
Here’s a short movie of Freddy walking. I am very pleased with it because, for the first time ever, I edited a movie in Photoshop! It was very dark before, so I lightened it and tweaked the contrast and colour a little. Just click the image to watch.
Yeah, you read that title correctly. Apparently today is “Walking the Dog Day.” Well, screw that.
According to Jacoby, Angel and Summer the Somali, today is “Walking the CAT Day!”
On Monday I took Jake and Angel out in the snow for a little winter experience.
This was Angel’s first time in snow.
I had some boots for her, but considering the struggle I had to put her coat on, I didn’t try to put them on her feet.
Jake wore his boots but he didn’t like them.
Well, he liked them in that his feet were warm and dry, but he doesn’t like things on his feet, especially the one back foot that was injured in the escalator incident.
These photos are actually from after we went out in the snow. I’ll post the other photos of our outing later this week.
After our trip to Grafton on Sunday, Jake wanted to walk home, and since we don’t have all that many more nice warm days left, I indulged him.
When he feels like walking, he just hops out and trots along next to the stroller.
He didn’t walk for very long, though. We were both pretty tired.
It was a long day. When we got home, we both took a nap together.
Hard to believe that soon it’ll be too cold to take walks like this.
