Silly Caturday!

Firstly, we aren't quite done giving out awards and posting last week's contestants yet, we are working on it, sorry for the delay, mommy is a busy secretary for me today. By the way, be sure to vote on how often we should do funny picture Friday.

So today's post is about medicine, but more funny than yesterday's medisin post.

Mommy thinks it's funny that daddy refuses to learn my medisun names. Of course, he knows to look at the lables in an emergensy, but if mommy says to him for instance, "Did you give Texas the Zofran?" He will give her a blank stare. Mommy doesn't understand this, because the labels are right on the medisuns, and he obviously looks at them before giving them to me. She doesn't understand how if she says "give Texas the steroid" he knows which bottle to pick up, but if she says "give Texas the prednisolone" he stares at her like she's nuts, even though the bottle is labeled "prednisolone" not "steroid". But this is what daddy does. And mommy can't give me medisins, cept my pepcid that they can sneak in a pill pocket, cuz I'm just so incredibly wiggly and then mommy gets jumpy and dad gets huffy, so daddy always does my medishins.

But mom is the one that usually takes me to the vet, so sometimes mom will ask dad if i am out of such and such medisin so she can tell the vet if I need more. But she has to use the "code words" with daddy. So the point of this post is to tell you the "code words" for each medisin I take, they are kinda funny..

Liqui-Tinic= Meaty Goodness (see note at bottom on this)
Zofran= stabby nausea medisin
Reglan= liquid nausea medisin
Pepcid = pill nausea medisin
Prednisolone= steroid medisin
Lysine= antisneeze medisin

Liqui-tinic is my iron supplement, because I have chronic mild anemia (vets not sure why, perhaps the chemo ,perhaps the cancer, but as it is stable and mild they aren't worried enough to do more tests right now). The website for Pet-Tinic, the brand name of this drug, said something along the lines of it having a palatable meaty flavor, eliminating the fuss needed to get your cat to take medicine. Well, maybe the brand name is "meaty goodness" but this version sure isn't. And it smells bad, at least to daddy, so I like to get it all over him so he can scream EWWW GROSS really loud, it's quite fun.

Well, hope you enjoyed the humor. I think it's medisin time now actually, so I can fling more medisin at Daddy now! Yay!

Ah the Woman is the only one to work with me. She knows how to work with me and not make it too stressful. Else I would never get pills... sigh.

It's amazin' that 'beans can be so oblivious. When Grandad's around, he's only good for pets, laps, an' naps.

Male Beans seem to need to do it their way sometimes, and as long as it works out and everyone knows what they are doing it's just fine and dandy :)

Hi, Texas, We dropped by to catch up. You've had a busy week.

Jan spent 4 days trying to figure out how to fit all 9 of us - with our names - into our header. So our week was intense but boring. Today, we'll go back to setting up our blogroll.

Ah, we feel like a nap. Care to join us?
