Thankful Thursday

 It's been a rough week for me.  My back legs haven't been treating me very well.  But today I have two reasons to be thankful.

Mom got me a new cushy bed to see if I would like it.  Here I am trying it out before it gets put in a spot I like.  I like it a lot, but I am having to compete with Misty and Timber - they like it a lot too.  I think Mom may need to get a couple more:)

I got to make a visit to my V.E.T. to see if he could help make me more comfortable.  He thinks I may have overexerted myself when I decided to chase a squirrel across the yard.  He kindly added some tramadol to my daily routine to see if that will help.  Things are feeling a bit better this afternoon.  So thanks, Dr. B.

Let's hop along on Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and find everyone else's reasons for giving thanks.

  13. Dear Lightning, us "oldies but goodies" can't quite do the runabouts we used to do ... take it slow and easy friend ... PS, when this oldie got a new hip bone in her one leg the dogter also gave her the same medicine, it helped some. Didn't know us humans and dogs would take the same pills, how 'bout that!

  19. Lightning we hope your back legs are all better soon. Yeah those naughty squirrels get us into all sorts of trouble. BOL boy did our backyard squirrel get a shock when Yin and Yang came to live with us. Unlike me and Tuiren those two can climb trees and they followed the squirrel right up the tree, even though they are cats they can run pretty fast and they ran with me and Tui after the squirrel. ~Your pal, Fenris

  20. Zappa here: Know what you mean Lightning. My back legs don't work so great, and I have a rabbit I've been trying to catch! He's too quick for me, but I keep trying when I can. Hope you feel better soon!

  28. Lightening! We are glad that the new bed is working for you! We feel for you! One of the befores had arthritis in her back legs and had to take medications to be comfortable. We will add you to our purrayers! (We also hope that your siblings get their own beds).
