Juicin’ Cherries & Hidin’ in the Closet

“Butterscotch”

“Charlie & Piper”

My dad recently bought some sweet cherries and I gave the buns each half a cherry, after removing the pit and stems. Boy were they happy! “Thank you, daddy!” I usually have a tissue to catch any cherry juice that drips from their mouths to prevent stains, but Piper slurped all of hers down. “I’m not missing a drop!”

Earlier this week, Charlie and Piper snuck into my mom’s closet and somehow got closed in there. It was only for a few minutes, but we still can’t figure out how they got in there. My mom only noticed because Piper started digging the blanket on the floor and it disappeared into the closet. They could have just pushed the door open, but they were having too much fun!

My Butterscotch has been having some paw trouble. Last week we noticed him picking his front right paw up and found that he had chewed some of the fur off. He tends to do this when he’s nervous. We think the construction on our block in addition to starting to use the noisy air conditioner again may have triggered it.

We took him to the vet to see if there’s anything we can do to help, aside from Metacam for pain and Rescue Remedy to calm him. He’s getting Gabapentin for a few days now to help with nerve pain and hope that he’ll get better quickly. He’s already growing fur back. He did not want to take the Gabapentin, and he is terrible at taking meds, but I realized I could mix some with banana, and now he gobbles it down!
