Sunday Selfies and why I haven't been Visiting.

First of all I want to say sorry to all my friends for not visiting for a while. My humans have been gallivanting and deserted me for 16 days. They don't like to say when they are going away because it is fairly isolated where we live and they don't like people knowing there is no-one home. They schedule posts ahead for me, but they are back now so I can start visiting again.
They were worried about leaving me for so long for the first time since I was ill, but my vet told my mum there was no reason for them to cancel as he thought I was doing so much better that I would be okay. A contingency plan was worked out for my two holiday aunties and mum rang home every day to check on me.
They told mum how good I was for taking my pred every morning and night, and that I was eating all my food. I even put on 0.8 of a pound which makes me a tiny bit over 12 1/2 pounds which is the most I have weighed for 15 months.
Then mum and dad spoiled it by telling me I am booked in Monday morning to have my blood stolen to see if the Prednisalone has helped suppress my thyroid function so my T4 reading will be better.
So, on to my selfie.

Hmm, what's this?

It must be a new bed for me. It's a bit small though.


It's even got built in toys.

Okay mum, now you've gone too far. I refuse to have a selfie with that Thing on my head. You want a selfie, you can wear it!

That's better. Now you can look like the silly one.
Mum bought the cat hat in Norway and when she came home she put it on to show me and it made my tail turn into a bottle brush. I soon realised it was her though.

I don't blame you for being a little frightened of that hat when your human was wearing it - it looks some weird space alien thing! I'm glad you did so well while your humans were on their vacation! I hope your test shows good numbers!

That is great you have gained some weight! Wonderful! I hope the test go well on Monday. Bless you, Sweet Flynn.
Love,
Lily

Great news about your weight, and I hope the blood stealing will be merciful. I know you hated the abandonment, as did your mum and dad but they also needed a break - and we are delighted they headed to the fjords and saw the midnight sun. The cat hat is not exactly traditional Norwegian but we hope that you could maybe persuade them to let you have salmon ? Paws crossed for you - you have been doing amazingly well and I know there would have been a time when Mum and Dad would never have considered going away.

Glad you are doing well, and we hope your lab work will come back showing improvment.

It's tough being left by your m,um and dad for so long, Flynn, but the fact that they felt able to do that is a good sign in itself. You've been eating well and even put on a little weight. This is all very good news to your friends. Keep it up!

Ellen in Oregon said...

Love the selfie of you & mom wearing her silly Norwegian cat hat. I can see why your tail would turn into a bottle brush when you saw mom wearing the cat hat for the 1st time, but we're glad you realized it was just mom & not some strange intrudor
So glad that mom & dad were able to go on holiday & that you did so well while they were gone. Hope your labs turn out perfect and that you keep on the weight you have gained. You look marvelous Flynn!
