I had planned to write a follow up to yesterday’s post but it seems like I won’t have time today. Or this weekend. Or maybe even next week.
At Swing Dynamite, we do all kind of cool non-dancing stuff during the summer. And this Sunday is one of them. We start the day with a Yoga class at our studio and then we all head to Calypso Water Park for a fun day of sun and water slides. I can’t wait!!! We had SO much fun last year!
Then on Monday, I have to take both kitties to the vet. That’s gonna be quite the adventure. The bear can’t come because he’s working (YAY!) but I have enrolled my daughter’s help.
Little miss Satchie needs her rabies boost shot.
And Jayzers, well he needs some blood work done in preparation for his dental surgery.
Many thanks to those of you who help us with your advice. Special shout out to Veggiewitch for suggesting I’d ask Jay’s clinic about payment plan arrangement. I did and the manager agreed to it! That’s a HUGE relief as this is the estimate for the procedure:
We have decided on tooth extraction and that’s happening on Tuesday. I have to bring Jay to the Pet Hospital at 8 am and if all goes well I will be picking him up at 4 pm.
The good thing is that they will take advantage that Jay will be out to do a dental profilaxis as well. My boy will have nice and healthy teeth after that.
So, between work, fun outings, kitty vet appointments and dental surgery, I don’t know when I’ll have time to write the follow up post.
Hope you al have a GREAT weekend!

I’m so glad you got that sorted, my friend. ♥
Jay will be right as rain soon. ♥
Hug him for me. ♥
Will do! He’s right by my side -all cuddled up as I type this.
He hasn’t left my side since my son left. Such a good kitty
I think we’ll have to spend some time pampering Jay next week…when he’s not being too grumpy.
hmmm I think we have to pamper him EVEN if he’s grumpy. He’ll have a good reason to be grumpy this time around
Satchie better not swat him on the mouth for a while. Jay won’t like that one bit.
So glad you are doing fun things this Sunday! :) Awesome!
And I’m so glad the Bear is working again for money! :) Tell the Bear I really miss him! Will be following The Bear and The Daisy now to not lose contact with him.
Empathising hugely with you about Jay’s surgery. It’s awful waiting to hear they are awake again and doing well and the procedures are all over. Give him special pats from me too. I’m glad he’ll have clean teeth after this.
I’m *so* glad you got to do a payment plan! That is a *lot* of money! Eek~! Even though Jay is worth far more than every cent of that.
Looking forward to hearing how your fun went as well as Jay’s surgery.
Rufus is doing *really* well now. He has plumped up surprisingly fast again. He’s a lot more phobic of dogs now, so I’m wondering if a dog might have scared him into that room he got locked in. Poor baby. He’s settled very well now, as long as he doesn’t see any dogs.
I love the photo of your dance group. you all look so healthy! :)
Love from Rach.
Thank you! Yeah, I’m looking forward to it. I feel myself withdrawing more and more. For me, when I want to be hidden and away from people, stay at home all the time, that’s not a good sign. It’ll be good for me to go out and do stuff outside :)
Thank you so much for caring for Jay. You totally understand how I feel! And poor Rufus. It must’ve been so terrifying for him. I am SO happy he’s back home with you :)
Fred and I keep talking about doing a vlog but after my son left but I’ve been a bit busy. We have to do it soon. I miss it
I *so* understand the withdrawing! (((hugs))) Be gentle on you, and enjoy the sunshine! You’re worth it.
Sending lots of healing vibes to Jay, starting tomorrow (It’s Sunday here now- hahaha, I accidentally wrote “Sinday” hahaha). :)
I just keep looking at Rufus (and patting him, talking with him, feeding him, etc). I can’t quite believe he came back after all that time! It’s just like, WOW! To think you’ll never see him again, then he’s back and he bounces back into fine form so quickly, it’s just mind boggling. Am I dreaming? :D
Looking forward to anything and everything you and Fred make! :)
Love from Rach.
Yay, it is quite amazing and I am happy for both you and Rufus. remind me to tell you a story about my first cat. Pretty amazing too
Oh yay! And Fred’s working — double yay!!
It’s a three month contract but still :)
Yeah, like SSG said, a 3-month contract BUT I do have a little side work on the go and if all goes well, I’ll get extended. I didn’t get the other FT job I really wanted and I was *this* close but oh well. I’m sure I’ll find something permanent sooner or later.
Rootin’ for ya Fred :)
If I had a gig for ya… you know…
Thank you. :)
Fred!!! Come back Fred! No, listen, you do what you gotta do. I hope all goes well for you!
Thanks, Sandee. Things are good. Still writing like mad but it’s not quite blog-appropriate. Hope all is well with you.
Oh Fred I think the ‘sphere could use some ‘not quite blog-appropriate’ material :) All is okay with me — only I have teeth issues like Jay — I’m going to be brave just like him! Take care Fred!
I wouldn’t be caught dead blogging again (unless it’s work-related, which I have to keep up, unfortunately), to be honest. But I do appreciate the nudge. Cheers,
(Addendum)…the exception being the D&B Blog…if we ever get around to doing another entry…hint hint, SSG….
I am glad you made this clarification. Sometimes, you should really think before you say something…
Why? I meant what I said.
I miss you Fred!! Enjoy checking out different companies while you are on your way to a permanent position. :)
Love you! From Rach.
Yeah, I’m keeping my eyes open. It’s nice to be in an office environment again. I don’t much care for working in a silo for too long.
I hear you can be crushed by grain in a silo. I don’t think I’d enjoy working in one either, quite frankly. :)
You are missed, Fred Bear.
Thinking of you.
Your friend, Rach. :)
Enjoy your day of fun!
And I am sending purrs of support to Jay and Satchie for the vet time (hissing).
Thank you Texas. Yeah, hissing is right. I’m not happy to have to take them there either but what are you gonna do, right?
Oh yes. I was just hissing at the vet, not you! I would never hiss at you!
oh I know. Not to worry, I got it! :)
Phew! Purrs to you too. Plenty!
Of course, darling Texas. If I – a mere human, could purr, I would send you purrs back. Sending you pets, instead.
I wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for an award on my blog. Here’s the link on my blog to check it out: http://strengthunbroken.wordpress.com/2012/07/27/sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-awards/
Oh. Thank you so much! I’m very touched! :)
You’re welcome :)
Godspeed to Mr. Jazz Cat during his hospitalization. I’ll tell my four to send some supportive purrs or snorts or whatever his way on Tuesday.
Thank you. I’m sure your four kitties rooting for him will make a big difference! :)
Snorts? LMAO! Hahahha!
Well, yeah – my Molly is a little grumpy sometimes, so I couldn’t gaurantee a purr…
LOL well, even snorts are welcome :)
Super news on the payment plan front and getting his teeth cleaned at the same time. Poor old Jazzy but his smile will be brilliant soon (if a little lop sided!). Have a great day out :D
Yes! I am so happy about that. Otherwise, I’d have to wait at least another six months and I wouldn’t want my Jayzers to be in pain for that long :(
*Definitely* the right decision SSG!
yeah. Can’t wait to get it done so my darling Jay won’t be in pain any more!
So glad they let us do the payment plan! The idea of poor Jayzer’s being in pain any longer makes a bear sad.
