Run Bunnies, Run!

Standard

CLEANING2

 Yep – that’s what Mom said so today is the day!

CLEANINGBANNERRUN BUNNIES ……. RUN!

You know I complain a whole lot about monster day but really I appreciate that Mom and Dad keep the house so nice and neat and clean all week.  With just the three of us living here and rarely having company, the place stays pretty nice and straight though.  The bunnies are few and far between………..Dad changes the filters in the A/C system regularly……when Mom dusts every Friday we don’t have so much dust you can write in it !!     Just a sprinkle here and there…….still, with two monster machines going on two different floors it can be a bit noisy around here for a while.   Today I get a bit of a break……..they won’t be simultaneously  monsterizing because Dad isn’t here!  He’s flying (again) as today is a carbon copy of yesterday with beautiful weather.  Mom will be doing the whole house BUT one floor at a time!   YAY!

So enough about housecleaning……………. how about I tell you about my vet’s phone call to Mom this afternoon.   Turns out my thyroid level is slightly high.  That isn’t a big surprise to my Mom because she’s the one who tries everything to get me to take my pill every day…..and I’m the one who digs his ginger heels in on some days and simply WILL NOT COOPERATE.   Yeah – I take the fall on this one.  Not Mom.   We’ve tried every flavor of yogurt (which worked for a long time), almost every flavor of baby food (which mostly works but not every single time) and you know we tried pill paste, pill pockets and sneaking it in people food including bacon and NOTHING works as well as the baby food.   SO, Mom is going to really work harder to get me to EAT my pill.     As it is, she gives me a little in my first taste of baby food in the morning……then if I’m really eating it well she’ll give me a bit more or sometimes all of it at that time.  If I don’t cooperate, she’ll give me a little then wait until afternoon to try again – AND AGAIN – AND AGAIN  so Mom is trying.   She will continue to try and I promise I will try harder too!    Doc says transdermal is the next step but he really thinks that because my level is only slightly elevated, if Mom can get me to eat more of the pills, I’ll be fine.   THE END.    I go back in 4 months for another checkup.

My Catsultant......hahahaha

My Catsultant……hahahaha

All you ever wanted to know about my health but were afraid to ask (hahahahaha)……………I tell you all everything anyway even if you don’t wanna hear it!

That’s about it for the Friday Report from Casa Kimmell.   I hope all of you are fine, furry and fluffy this morning (or at least FINE!!!!!)……………have a super Friday……………….

Hugs, Sammy

  1. I guess you will just have to learn to take your medicine, Sammy! As if that is going to happen, MOL! Seriously, I hope you and your human come to some sort of agreement.

  2. we have a great bunnie-hunt here too… my grampy is on the way with the elephant skate and therefore my momma wants to present (or to pretend?) a clinically clean crib :o) Sammy I wish I would have an idea for the pill-battle… I bet you still tried to dissolve the pills in a little water to mix it between baby food or yogurt…and that idea can backfire, in worst case you have to throw away the pill and the food when the cat/dog says No, thanks …

    • Hi Easy! I’m so glad that your Grampy is on the way back with the Skate! You need that as I’m sure your Mom is anxious to go to the store to buy you more toys – right? RIGHT????? Maybe Grampy will not only have a hedge trimmer in the car but some more toys for you to terrorize? I hope so! Yes, sometimes Mom “wastes” a pill because she’ll mix the powder up in the baby food and give it to me and I look at her like “ARE YOU KIDDING ME???” and walk away. Not often though – usually I eat a little bit first. Mom just crushes up another pill and tries again later. Happily my pills aren’t expensive or Mom would make me get a job to support my pill habit! HAHAHAHA

        • Well dear friend as I recall, your Dad didn’t do so well with his “on the street” collection did he? My Mom is hoping to avoid having to go door to door selling magazines or flowers or pencils…..we’re glad my pills are reasonably priced (because everything else in the world is NOT reasonable!!!!!).

  3. Has your mom tried cream cheese, S? I LOVE cream cheese and it’s sticky enough to hang onto the medicine. When I was new here, Mom had to give me worm and parasite medicine and cream cheese did the trick. That was before she knew that I would just eat the pills like candy because I eat anything. Eat first ask questions later – that’s my motto.

    Love and licks,

    • Oh Cupcake I did try cream cheese once and thought it was pretty tasty stuff – then the next day Mom tried it again and I looked at her like “ARE YOU KIDDING????!!!!” – so she tried sour cream and THAT worked for a few days. I love your motto – I may give that a try…..I do know that I need to be more COOPERATIVE with the whole pill thing. Mom worries too much!

  4. Oh, Sammy, I do think you’re the one who’s a bit “trying”…!!! Trying your poor Mom’s patience!! Just kidding, but hopefully, you’ll be in the mood to take your meds a bit more regularly.
    You know we just want you to be the healthiest that you can be!!
    Glad for the good report from your vet.

    • I need to do a better job so Mom will not be worried about me all the time. I know she wants to help me feel the best that I can – I promised her this morning that I would try to be better about taking it. In fact I had MOST of it this morning already!

    • Oh Charles what a SWEET and kind thing to say. I have promised my Mom that I will do better about taking my pill – sometimes I’m just a real stinker about it but it makes her unhappy so I will try HARDER to take it. Thank you for being concerned about “this OLD Scout” – I have so much fun in Scouts and with my blog that I want to be around for a long time…..that alone should make me TAKE MY MEDS! HAHA

  6. Sammy I sure wish we had more ideas to help your poor Mama. Maybe Mom should just give it to you all at once? I think your Mom tried wrapping it in a tiny piece of cheese too, right? My Mom is stretching her brain to try and think of more things (but you know how empty my Mom’s brain is!!) C’mon pal, take that pill, it’s not so bad! Love, Cody

    • I was very good this morning and had almost ALL of it in some beef with beef gravy baby food. There’s just a bit left for Mom to give me later………I’m going to try harder to cooperate – really I am. Mom has tried EVERYTHING except forcing me to take it. That truly is at the bottom of her list though (thankfully!).

  7. Sammy- you need to take your medicine. I can’t believe you won’t take it with bacon. You are lucky your Mom doesn’t toss it down your throat and blow on your nose like I do to Millie. My other 2 boys take it in food, but he won’t so he leaves me no choice.

    • HA! My Mom threatens me with the pill pushing DEVICE, and forcing my mouth open to take it, etc. but she just can’t bring herself to do that SOOOOOOOOOOO she smashes the pill into smithereens and puts it in something delish like baby food……..usually it works but sometimes I’m just not IN THE MOOD for the pill….she thinks I can’t taste it in there but of course I can. Even my doc says it tastes disgusting! HAHAHAHA

  8. Mom and Dad are waiting to hear back from our vet to find out if I am hyperthyroid. They hope not, because the pilling thing will be awful with me – I am so finicky about food, I bet I would even reject baby food. Glad you are doing pretty well.

    • I hope you won’t have to take pills Simba because I am VERY VERY picky about food too BUT Mom did find (even though she told everyone it WOULD NOT WORK) that I will take it if it’s smashed up and “hidden” in either ham, beef, or chicken BABY FOOD! Good old Gerber Baby Food! Can you believe it? Mom was sure I wouldn’t eat it but it’s too yummy to resist!

      Good luck SImba……..

  9. Oh cousin. I hate to say it but you might want to give in just a little bit more on those pills. You don’t want things getting worse. We all have to show our streaks of being pig headed at times… trust me on that. I can be bad at being pig headed – snorts. Have a great day and weekend! XOXO – Bacon

  12. Mom says since they were gone for 2 days she won’t get the sucky monster out until maybe tomorrow. Too much else to do this afternoon. I’d rather her suck the dust bunnies than take me in for my annual check up!!
    Sammy darlin’ speaking of sucking things…you need to step up and be more cooperative with the pill deal. Sounds like your mom is spending the day getting you to ‘suck it up’!!

  14. Sounds like your mom is really nice… I assume you are aware that some peeps use the pill on the finger down the throat routine. If I were you I would take the pill however it comes; especially once she reads this and starts considering this method seriously.

    • Oh Mom says she would never be able to do the finger/throat thing. No way…….I’ve told her that I will TRY to be more cooperative – I’ll do anything if it means no finger/throat or that evil “piller” tube!

  17. I am glad your thyroid level is only slightly elevated Sammy. You have to try harder for your mum though and get that pill down so your levels can be spot on.
