You missed me right!? If you didn't just lie and tell me you did.

It's been a long time, I know. I'd tell you why but I'm no longer going to blog about my health. If you have an opinion on that feel free to tell me.

I have a lot to blog about but I have to pull from the pictures that are already on my laptop because my camera's battery is charging so I have to wait to upload other pictures. So here is the first of many posts in the next few days.

We shaved Donut. She was becoming increasingly matted and I didn't want to pay a groomer to pay her but my first attempt at removing her hair did not go so well. Then I had an epiphany. Let's drug her. Genious right? I  know. So I called my vet.

Me: Hi, I was wondering if I could come pick up some sedatives so I can shave my cat.

Vet Tech: Ummm... I don't think we can just give you sedatives to groom your cat.

Me: Will you ask the vet anyways. I know you give sedative for when animals fly and I've been seeing your vet for like 7 years now. Just ask him.

VT: Okay, but don't get your hopes up.

Me:Thanks

VT: Okay, the vet says you can come pick them up in about an hour.

Me: Sweet!


So, I pick up the sedatives and the lady tells me to test them on my cat first because for about 1 out of every 100 the sedative has the oposite affect. So I crushed the pill put it in some milk, sucked it into medicine giver thingy and gave it to Donut. Seriously wish I had video taped her because she was hiliarious drugged.



Her furr looks like a whole nother cat. So you know that inner eyelid that cats have?, well when donut is drugged it closes like halfway and she looks cross eyed. She also can't walk. Her feet criss cross. It's crazy funny.

Drugged, it seemed like she almost enjoyed being shaved. Zoom in on this picture and check out her eyes.

She loved having half the furr. She'd sprall out on her newly bare belly on the cold floor. You know me and Bargains. Well, I have to tell you that this cost us a grand total of $7. And I got 4 sedatives. So technically $7 for 4 grooms. That's crazy cheap and so worth it.

Unfortunately and sadly,(mostly sad for Bryce),(I'm not heartless, I just don't like getting animals in my bedroom and cat piss in my house), our Donut has gone missing. She is an inside and outside cat. She has a collar and we haven't seen her for about a week now. Bryce love love loves Donut. She's the greatest cat he's ever had. His words. So, this is goodbye to Donut. I hope some family decided she was super awesome and decided to steal her from us. That's what I tell myself. Check back for more posts.

Don't give up on Donut yet. Our Bonsai went missing for five full weeks before he came back. He's just a wanderer. Unfortunately, it's very hard on Brie when he disappears for 2-4 weeks at a time. This most recent one is the longest, so we know how you feel.

I came home yesterday to a bird wing on our driveway and I thought maybe she had come back and brought a gift with her but still no
Donut. We do still hope she comes back.
