Couple things I'd like to discuss today on this here blog of mine. A couple of VERY IMPORTANT things, for sure.
First of all, yesterday was a big day for ol' Saffy Saffron Saffers Sassafras. Yesterday was his big adventure. Yesterday was his...
Well yesterday was the day Saffron got to meet my favourite doctor in the whole wide world: Dr T.
No relation to Mr T, of course, on account of DR T bein' female.
Yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinkin'. You're thinkin', ol' Sassafras was supposed to meet Dr T last week, and you know somethin'? You're right!
Yup, Peepers went and put the wrong date on the calendar so Saffron, Peepers, and I all thought the appointment was for last Thursday. But as it turned out, last Thursday was St. Patrick's Day and not Saffron's doctor's appointment day, at all. Leave it to the peep to screw things up.
But anyway, once the calendar stuff was all sorted out, Saffron was all set for his appointment.
Truth is, he didn't know what was happenin' WHICH I KNOW to be a fact on account of Peepers bein' able to pick him up and stuff him in the crate without so much as a meow. I'm gonna have to have a chat with that brother of mine. He's gonna need to learn that when Peepers tries to crate us, IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY to give her as hard a time as we can give. Runnin' downstairs, hidin' under beds, kickin' up a fuss, that sorta thing... His bein' so cooperative yesterday makes me look bad and we can't have that now, can we.
But back to Saffy's appointment. From what I heard, all went well. Saffron got poked and prodded and all the usual stuff. Had his temperature taken - bleh - and his heart listened to as it raced a mile a minute on account of his nerves; but he's as fit as a fiddle, I'm told. Yup, all 4.7kg of him. One little toofie is a little screwy so that'll be comin' out when he goes in for his neuterin'. No big deal, they say. And he got all three of his vaccines so he's safe from diseases and stuff.
Oh, there was something 'bout half of his exam bein' done down on the floor, under the examination table. He was hidin' under there and didn't wanna come out so Dr T got down on her paws and paws, and examined him there. Dr T is good 'bout stuff like that. Why, once she even crawled right into a crate with me! True story. Fact.
But back to Saffy's appoin...
No, wait. I'm all done talkin' about that. Now I wanna tell you 'bout the OTHER bit of news I have.
Yesterday, after the doctor's appointment, Saffy and I enjoyed...
THE FIRST CATNIP LEAVES OF THE SEASON!!!
That's right, my friends, Peepers discovered one of my special nip plants growin' out front was comin' back to life after the winter. It was sproutin' out there and there were leaves unfurlin' and the beautiful aroma of catnip was permeatin' the air....
So Peepers picked a few leaves, and...
THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY, SCRUMPTIOUSLY DELICIOUS.
Better than that fairy I ate last Thursday, for sure.
It was all grizzle.
Remember to mask up, too.
