Ringo: I love it when Mom picks me up and throws me over her shoulder (Ok, she doesn't really throw me.) I purr and cuddle her. Sometimes she'll sit down at her computer chair. I learned that I can sit with her on the back of the chair! It's pretty fun.

Sadie had a four-week checkup to see how her thyroid levels were doing. I'm pleased to say that her numbers are much improved. She even gained 4 ounces! We can reduce the medication a bit. She'll get rechecked in three months.
An interesting note: I asked the vet to check her ears, because she had been scratching them a lot. She tends to get semi-regular yeast infections in her ears, so I'd started some ointment she'd been given before. Turns out, the scratching is a side effect of the medication. I'm hoping the reduced dosage, in addition to time, will help with that.
Here's a selfie I took of her on Friday night. Despite her looking grumpy, she was quite happy at the time.

Ringo: Mom bought this feather wand toy on clearance (whatever that means) after Christmas. I really like it and will play with her whenever she gets it out.
We are also sad for our friends at 15 and meowing. They had to say goodbye to their Emmy. I'm sure they'd appreciate a kind word.

I was delighted to fine two new-to-me cat pins in a thrift store recently. I really like the one that spells "cat."
I also received a belated Christmas gift from a coworker. She and I often talk about thrifting and she also loves going to antique stores. She found this Christmas 45 vinyl record and thought I would like it. Cats have been used forever to sell pretty much everything! There's no date on the album.

Every night, Ringo carries around toy and will caterwaul. It's rare that I actually see the toy in his mouth, but I caught him in mid-caterwaul with this photo.
Update on Sadie: She needed some anti-nausea medication for a few days, as the high dose of thyroid meds upset her stomach and she wasn't eating much. She seems to have leveled out a little, and has gone two days without any Cerenia, so we're hoping she's feeling a little better. She gets re-checked on the 27th.

There must be something in the air that's bothering the cats. Last week, Sadie had a weepy eye (clear) and sneezed a few times. The oth...
