Just got back from the vets, and Rosie is clean as a whistle and we estimated her age to be four years old. She is now up to date on her shots, her frontline, and her heartworm, I got her her tags from the county, and we are good to go.
Also, a reader writes in:
I’m a long time reader of your blog. I enjoy the politics but just as much I enjoy your accounts of life with Lily, Rosie and Tunch. It occurred to me
that you could do a public service by reminding pet owners about the dangers
of heat stroke and heat exhaustion. I think that cats start to have problems
when the temperature is in the 90’s and so the last few days have been
brutal. A panting cat is a cat in serious distress and needs to be cooled
down immediately.I’m not a dog owner so I’m not sure what the best advice is
for them — but probably you know.
Anyway, just thought I’d mention it — most of us aren’t used to
temperatures this awful and neither are our pets.
