Happy Monday. Or is it still Sunday?

Feels like Sunday. I haven’t been to bed yet.


Amanda called about 9:30 last night in a lot of pain. I feared she had another kidney stone or worse yet appendicitis. She was in an inordinate amount of pain by the time we got to the ER; and it took two shots of Morphine to get her pain controlled so they could do a cat scan.

I’m very happy to report it was just a nasty UTI, no surgery required; just a butt load of antibiotics ,both IV and oral. I’ve never had a UTI. I had no idea they could be that painful; but the Dr. in ER said it’s actually pretty common/

I’m going to take 2 Benadryl and pretend it’s about 10 pm last night. Hopefully Amanda is already asleep at her house.

Anyway, I was hoping to get a few more clips for today’s post; but I am really starting to get sleepy now so I guess I’ll forgo that now and just go with what I already had.

I imagine there are a lot of folks in Baltimore who are doing this today:

Finally a video of a cat actually doing something useful, other than looking cute of course.

We had a Golden Retreiver named Buddy who just loved all other animals, especially little ones; although he was extraordinarily fond of cows and horses as well. Hopefully when Dickens the Golden in this clip, finally went in this little fawn was able to get back to his mom.

Is this normal for a feline?

Now no one has to hold the phone for them anymore:

This is cool:

PS- Thanks to everyone who was so sweet to me about Giz. It really meant a lot.

Back to the funny next time.

    Cute Videos. The cats in the snow..I would think that is unusual. As my cats are strictly indoor cats, I am not sure how they would react but typically cats don’t like to be wet or cold.

  2. Poor Amanda! I’ve had a kidney stone and a bad UTI, both were miserably painful and I went to the ER for both. I hope she gets better ASAP and never has this happen again!
    I always love your animal videos :)

      A UTI can mimic a kidney stone. That seemed hard to believe. I sure hope I never have any first hand experience with one.

    Hope Amanda gets to feeling better. Thoses UTI’s are quite painful. We have had to make several emergency runs for them and it was awful. The clips are cute, especially the cats in the snow. Have a good day.
