TODAY WAS "TAKE the cats to get shots day." We loaded Josie into the Jeep, and she promptly hid under the back seat. Then we grabbed Fast Eddie from the store, and he meowed loudly all the way from Fifth and Maine to the Quincy Humane Society. Their immunization clinic is fast and cost effective.
Both cats were actually well behaved. Sheryl held Josie while I held Eddie. I had a lot more cat to hold onto, but both decided they'd just stare at the other dogs in the waiting room, and they both were very good when the vet gave them their shots.
Since Eddie never leaves the store, except to get shots, I think he was just soaking it all in and figured trying to make a break for it would only get him in more trouble.
On the way back I started sneezing, and I looked at my jacket. It was coated in cat hair. Coated In Cat Hair would make a great name for a band. Anyway, I shed the jacket and took some benadryl. Sheryl got Josie home, and now we are updated on shots and both cats are happy and healthy.
This comes on the heals of a rather productive Sunday. I played in church in the morning and jammed with the Matt Roberts Blues band at night. Sheryl got the garden planted, did laundry, cleaned the carpets and got the solar powered garage door opener installed. It works! I also got more rocks put down in the low spot by the garage and tilled part of the backyard, then put grass seed down. We'll see how much it grows, especially with dogs and Josie walking through it all the time.
So we are both sore today. Maybe we should get a shot to feel better. I think a new shoulder for Sheryl might be essential if we are going to do this every weekend.
We have done enough today just getting the cats their shots.
