For the past couple of days, Banana has had no appetite, labored breathing, and her eyes were tearing more than usual. I tried calling her usual vet numerous times, however, no doctor would call me back. We finally decided to just walk-in last night, because we didn't know what else to do, and couldn't afford to wait an extra day to find out. Upon them assessing her, they said she needed to be hospitalized immediately, but they didn't have the staff to do so. We had to then find a different ER/hospital, and I'm so glad we did. VCA ASG was highly recommended by a close friend (thanks @djgenevieve) , and I can see why.
Upon arrival at VCA Animal Specialty Group ER in Kearny Mesa, we were taken care of. The front staff (Francisco and Jasmine) were able to calm my nerves (which needed a lot of calming by this point), and both the tech and doctor said that it's most likely just congestion (which can cause the labored breathing, poor appetite, and teary eyes), nothing serious... NOTHING that needed immediate hospitalization. We are taking her in for a follow-up (new) vet appointment today to conduct X-rays, but otherwise, we think she's going to be just fine. Did I mention the total cost was less than a regular vet visit to her usual doctor? Thank you Dr. Ray, Rae and VCA staff
In honor of International Cat Day, Bowie's progression- Today to back when he was "Temp Cat". I can forgive the fur monster for waking me up around 2a after he curled up at my feet, kept contact and slept for an hour. And waking me up early on Fridays when I don't have to be.
Guys! This is my mom’s new favorite torture device (erm, grooming tool). It’s a Safari Long Tooth Undercoat Dog Rake by Coastal Pet. You can find it on Amazon. It doesn’t pull or damage my fur. It glides through my coat and pulls out gobs of the undercoat. Her other torture device is being retired! #furmonster#sheddingseason

I had my cat Lolo’s BD Party last month. I’m not sure if I should call it “a day to appreciate my cat” or “BD party”, because I don’t know his actual date of birth.
I adopted him from a kill shelter in Manhattan, NY. Lolo had a badly injured tail, and was suffering from a terrible fever, without my knowledge. Long story short, through the kindness of many people, and the help of an excellent doctor, he ended up with an amputated tail, but feeling much better.
Because I have no idea about his age or date of birth, I feel I was a bit late to do this birthday party.
I have been living with him now for two years and six months, during which time I ended up asking a few vets about his age. The general consensus is that he is between 2 and 5 years old.
This is a cake made to order from the wonderful @burr0w in Dumbo Brooklyn. I should mention that the cake is for human consumption 🤣
To be clear, Lolo received many gifts plus a big tuna dinner, the evidence of which I will post tomorrow!
He also received a subscription to a monthly cat box full of toys and treats👍✨✨
これは @burr0w さんでオーダーした人間用のケーキです😆
