Karen Jo: It amused me so much that I bought it for my Mom for Easter a few years ago. Mom liked seasonal stuffies very much.
I might be feeling just a little better today. After Mom ate her lunch I complained to her that I didn't like what I had on offer to eat. I sniffed at my Medley, then my Friskies, then my Stinky Goodness, then my I/D dry, but didn't eat any of them. I looked at Mom and made my complain meow. Mom got my extra food bowl and gave me some Purina Complete and I ate some of that. I was just being picky. By the time Mom got home I had eaten most of my Stinky Goodness and all of my Medley with my pro-biotic in it. I also made a big deal out of starving to death so she would feed me again right away. I didn't even want to wait for her to take her coat off. I haven't been so insistent about being fed right away for a few days.
Karen Jo: As odd as it seems, I was glad to see your picky behavior. You haven't seemed to care as much about your food lately. You haven't been waking me up for breakfast like you used to. It's as if you don't much care when you get breakfast these days.
Are you telling me that you miss being woken up before dawn to feed me?
Karen Jo: Yes, Herman. I never minded getting up to feed you. The only thing I minded was that when I did get up and fed you and you kept waking me up every hour afterward because you didn't like what I gave you.
I still meow at you to hurry up and get into the kitchen when you do get up.
Karen Jo: Yes, but you don't show much hustle going down the hall.
Not always, but I do hustle on some days. I sense that you might be planning on taking me back to the vet.
Karen Jo: You are almost out of your prednisol and I don't know if the vet wants to see you before deciding to prescribe you more or not. You also have a very bad mat on your right flank. It hurts you when I try to brush it out. I'll call the vet Monday morning and find out if you need to go in again.
I don't want any more fur stolen. I'm cold enough as it is with an almost bare chest.
Karen Jo: I'm sorry, Herman. I don't know how I missed this mat forming and I have been brushing you twice a day. I'll have to feel your fur more carefully and not just brush you and assume that it's taking care of preventing mat formation.
