Petcretary stuffed us unwilling felines into our PTU's and she bundled us off to that place she cals the 'spa'. Sheesh, its no spa we can assure you. Its a huge cage in the vet office building. He lets his mascot kitties roam the premises, and he has a shelter in another building (Froggie's Pond)...but we don't get those privileges...we did get poked and prodded and well, at least we did not need to have our pearlies cleaned at this time, Hooray. That vet spent a lot of time with Minko, because it is he or is wife assistant who feed him...thanks!
Finally after forever she, the petcretary came and rescued us out of there...and now we are home again...ahhh nothing like Home Sweet Home!
So of course she grumbled something about not having the time to help us make selfies, but she did have some to show you of her Aunt, who was the reason for the trip she made into Canada. Yes she was there on election day...and no she did not vote...she is a 'resident alien' here with one of those so called green cards...why?? Its white! Anypaws, she was there because on Nov7th it was her Aunt's 97th birthday. Hip Hip Hooray!! She would not want to miss it, its always a great time and she gets to join up with her sister and some if her cousins, too.
The weather was great and not at all what one would expect at this time of year, temps in the 60's and pretty sunshine too! The leaves were mostly still showing off their beauty, and it was altogether a wonderful time, with fresh memories made!
Then she came back into the USA. Which, well, it still seemed the same even after the election with what some peeps call earth shattering or things to that effect. She didn't see anything shattered except the cars in a bad accident when she was almost back home...she did pawyer that hopefully no peeps were too badly hurt.
And the sun has risen and set and risen as it always has...and the residents at her work are all still there, with some new ones to pamper too.
Petcretary had to be at her work this Sunday Selfie day...and well a funny thing happened there.
Nov 13 is her birthday...so she was actually working on her own special day. No matter, she didn't mind too much.
Anypaws she was at the nurses desk discussing things with another staff member when out of nowhere a big pink helium balloon came floating by...slowly and at shoulder height, so she could see it was a pink birthday balloon with a butterfly design. Hey! Where did that come from? No clue, not from the other nurse either. Wow! So petcretary plucked it out of the air and made a decoration for herself out of it...and then all her residents had fun telling her Happy Birthday!
Another thing that gave goosebumps to petcretary: She shared the same birthday as her mom, our Oma...who was born on Nov 13 1923. Well, there was a resident in her facility that has the exact same birthday as our Oma! OMC! OMD! That gave petcretary a moments pause, because even after 10 years she still misses sharing the double birthday with her mom.
The lady at her work is not able to communicate due to severe dementia and other health issues...so sad:(
Petcretary doesn't look after that lady so she didn't even know it was her B'Day until after she had gone to bed for the night...
OK, Enough blathering about stuff, here are the selfies you were waiting to see... and next time there might also be some more guest selfies:)
(Pee Ess: We let petcretary hog our blog for non furry selfies this week...)
