The cloudy days with much-needed showers are now a thing of the past. We are back to temperatures in the high 90's and low 100's starting on Sunday.
In anticipation of the heat, I ventured out yesterday to try to check off as many items as I could off of my To Do List. The most important being mailing off my house and flood insurance payment. I really hope we do not have another hurricane that affects Texas anytime soon.
I am in a quandary I have to take Blanca (momma cat) to get fixed and I have no idea how I am going to get her inside the Pet Taxi. While she is not afraid of me I have actually never touched or carried her. From prior experience, it is not easy to get them to go inside without sustaining a few scratches. Maybe I can use gloves? Though I have no idea where mine might be. Even Paquito put up a good fight and he is tiny!
Today she did not show up until after 10:00 a.m. and from all appearances, she seemed to have eaten and was not interested in being lured inside the Pet Taxi with her favorite canned food...but Paquito and Otis sure rushed in and gobbled it up.
That brings me to another dilemma, Blanca cannot have anything to eat for eight hours prior to her surgery, How am I going to make sure of that when she is a stray cat? I guess I could feed her the night before and keep her in the carrier. I can only imagine if Paquito squealed all the way to Mexico which only took a few minutes how a full grown cat is going to react after being in a confined space for 12 hours! Any suggestions?
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
