Olivia - living life on her own terms

This past Saturday, I had to take Tanner in to see Dr. C. for his follow-up appointment.  (He is doing well and will be going to visit our holistic vet, Dr. L., very soon.  Then, as I think two heads are better than one, I'll be conversing via conference call with both vets to see if we can agree on a course of action going forward so that hopefully we never have a similar incident, as neither my nerves nor my checking account balance can readily withstand it!) 


Anyway, as Dr. C. and I were chatting at the end of the appointment, he asked me whether Olivia and Finn had given Tanner a hard time when he came home from the hospital.  I said that in fact they had, but that Finn had gotten over it in about five minutes while for Olivia it took more like five days.  

Then again, I said, she is a calico.  Dr. C. chuckled, and said, "Yes, well, they do live life on their own terms."  Gee, Doc.  Tell me something I DON'T know.  The last eight years with Olivia have been a lesson in exactly that.  There is Olivia's way, or the proverbial highway, and something that a normal cat would not even blink at sends Her Royal Caliconess into a tailspin. 



But look at that face .. I guess it's worth it!

Oh what a face! But what happened to Tanner? I have been away from the blogosphere, taking a break. Sounds like I have some catching up to do. Whatever happened, I'm glad things are better.

And that "Anonymous" spammer who commented before me - that spammer is such a nuisance!! I've gotten one a day from Anonymous for months now it seems, sometimes 3 or 4 a day. Wish blogger could block it!
