Water, come out, come out, wherever you are!

                                 Okay, water: Come out, come out, wherever you are!

There you are! Now if I can just get my tongue in the right spot.


There---I did it!

Ahhhh---it tastes so good!

I'm happy to report that George has been taking his insulin shots well and I have not stuck myself once.
I took him to the vet for the one month check up and  he's at 412, down from 500.  The norm is somewhere around the 250 mark (as usual I forget), so he has a ways to go.  But he gained a pound.  I upped his dose from 1 ml to 2 ml on the syringe last Thursday. On Sunday for the first time in 5 weeks, he ran into my bedroom, wholeheartedly jumped on the bed, and meowed (demanded) I pet him ( this has been the morning ritual for several years, but he hasn't felt like doing it.)  I laughed with joy!
His sis likes when I get the syringe out because it means  they both get some canned food, her brother gets stuck with a needle, and then they both get TREATS! She gets the Yummy! But not the needle--yea!


  1. Cute photos! So glad he didn't turn the water on and soak himself!

  2. Ahh, they are such good friends, our pets. Great photo of that little pink tongue. My sister had a cat who loved to drink from the tub faucet, too. So happy George is feeling better! You are a brave girl to learn to inject your cat!

  3. Sounds (and looks) like you have your hands full!

  4. cute cat and good shots...i mean camera shots, but, glad the other shots are doing him some good.

  5. What a scream! His sis sounds just like what my g-kids might do to each other. IN FACT, when Jack had to have certain treatments and certain drugs and the Twins were little, they LOVED going to the dr with him b/c the office always gave them toys or candy b/c they were his family. Amazing how similar cats and kids can be...


I welcome your thoughts. Please let me know you stopped by.
