Oh, my. That's nowhere close to the injection site of the shots is it? My vet says he always gives the shots in the same location to make it easier to recognize a bad reaction. Good luck with this one. Lacey's my buddy.

P.S. Don't trust front desk to deliver the messege. Call in again in the morning.

Poor Lacey. Any news yet, Rae?

BTW, remember we said our cats have the same cat condo as Lacey and Paddy? Well, that's 'had' now. They completely wrecked it the other night. They were chasing each other and one of the pillars broke and the whole thing came down with a loud crash - at five thirty in the morning! Now I will buy a new and sturdy one at ebay.

Sturdy!

I am trying to take the top storey off mine, and the wood is so solid and the screws so deep that I cannot do it!

I have spent HOURS on it.

Yeah, my multipost, multilevel cat tree from petsmart is pretty shakey too.

These pillar things were just hollow cardboard rolls with a thicker piece of cardboard or plywood put in the bottom for the screws. No wonder that thing broke when big Nisse was jumping up and down on it. You can never tighten the screws enough so it's always a bit wobbly. Well, I hope to find a better one.

Well, Miss Lacey got to go to work with me today ~ her vet isn't too far from my office and we couldn't get an appointment until 3:45 this afternoon.

All is well!! The rash is just that ~ a rash. We have ointment that should clear it up in a few days. All of her shots are up to date, too.

Have to tell ya'll ~ Lacey did great in the car! After the first few minutes, she decided my lap was the best place for her. Even though she talked the whole trip, she stayed in one spot. Same for the trip to the vet and on the way home.

She also did very well in the waiting room. There were three BIG dogs there, but I didn't have to have a death grip on Lacey to keep her on my lap. She was quite content. Every once in a while I got a look that said 'I love you and I know you won't let those dogs eat me, but I'm still gonna wake you up every morning at 3:45 for a few weeks for payback.'

Don't have Nikki any more but she was an amazing animal. She was a seal point Siamese and had been kept in a cellar for over a year. Conflict with the other cats. So when we got her (it was that or the grim reaper) she was traumatized. She came around nicely though and when I got home from work and flopped, she'd curl up on my tummy. Then the purr would start followed by the slow closing of her eyes and one black paw would come up and just touch the end of my nose. How to melt a guy.

Rae, that's good news! I am very happy for Lacey and you.

You did not put her in a carrying box? I would never try that with our two babies. I bet they would be all over the place in the car. They behave very well in the boxes. In the waiting room at the vet's they Mysan just lies in her box watching everything around her. Nisse needs to feel my hand from time to time just to know that he is not alone.

So Lacey had a day at work. I would have loved to see her.

Good news, Rae.

My cats always travel in a carrier too, Urs. Years ago, I had to extract a cat from the bottom side of the front seat, and she had worked her way up into the springs. I still worry about one of them getting under the brake pedal just when I need it most. Tough decision.

Once they are in there, it's no problem at all. And yes, Roger, I would also be afraid that they would get in the way when driving.

How do you get yours in the carrier? I always end up with nice scratches.

Yeah, I just got a new cat tree at ebay for the wild bunch. It is as tall as I am! But it has more platforms to sit on...

They will have such a good time sitting up there.

It's a nice technique, urs. Whether the carrier opens from the top or at the end, set it on the floor with the open end up. Now, grab little lucifer by the scruff of the neck and ease her into it. Partially close the door before releasing kitty.

When you pick them up like this, it more or less paralizes them, and they just kind of dangle from your hand.

I should mention; they won't like it, but it does work.

I think I am just too reluctant, Roger. You are right. The next time I'll just grab them like you said. Thanks!

I find skinning them AFTER grilling helps keep the flavor in.
