Oja's Vet Visit
Karen Jo: I'm sorry Spyro. I sat down to read for just a little bit, then I was going to take you out, but I fell asleep. When I woke up, it was raining, then it got to be too late. I don't want to take you out while the noisy men are working. If it isn't raining when they finally stop today, I will take you out.
Spyro: The noisy men won't bother me. Just take me out to the back yard.
Karen Jo: I will take that under consideration.
Karen Jo: You needed to go in for your booster. When you were dumped at the shelter, they had no way of knowing if you ever got your kitten shots, so they started the series and didn't quite finish. I was late getting you in, but they said I could still get you your booster. You will be happy to know that you are very healthy. You have gained 2 1/2 pounds. The vet said you were getting fat, but weren't too fat yet.
Oja: I didn't have much to do in my room but eat and sleep.
Karen Jo: And play with your toys. I saw you playing with your turbo track last night.
Oja: Those mancats are getting mean. Herman took a swipe at me and Spyro chased me today.
Karen Jo: I think they are getting tired of your hissing and growling and charging them. I am their Mom, as well as yours and you need to learn to share.
Oja: What is "share"? Guess what? I found out that there is food in the kitchen, as well as in my room. I ate some of it, but Mom seemed to get unhappy about that.
Karen Jo: The boys don't go into your room and eat your food, so I don't think you should eat theirs.
Oja: I won't let them eat my food. I didn't see anycat objecting when I was eating theirs.
Karen Jo: Spyro didn't look to happy about it, but he was still leery of you. I was actually glad to see him chasing you today. I knew he wouldn't hurt you, as you ran straight into Emma's old hidey-hole in my room, between the TV stand and my dresser. He can't fit in there and if you get much fatter, you won't fit, either.
Oja: Now you're being mean. I am not eating as much now that I am out of my room. I have more to do and I'm doing it.
