Penny and I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
Penny is stuffed and she spent most of the day hanging out in
the kitchen waiting for something to fall on the floor. She can't
see what falls on the floor, so I've devised a new way to give her
snacks so she will know they are in front of her. I place the
snack on a paper plate, and tap it on the floor twice.
It works, and she eats it right up! This might be
feeding into her Obsessive Compulsive
Disorder (yes she has OCD), but
My mom and dad are also here for Thanksgiving. Penny had to
adjust to having everyone around, and they had to adjust
to her not being able to see. So far, everyone seems
to be right, it's harder for the humans to adapt
to the animal being blind than it is for the
animal. It's funny how that works.
Penny is doing remarkably well. She still bangs into a lot,
but she seems more comfortable and at ease with this
whole situation. I will be bringing her back to the
vet in about a month for more blood work. Her
doctor is concerned she may also have
Cushing's disease. We have to wait
for her to finish up the steroid
medication she is on before
they can test for this.
For now, Penny and
I are focusing
Since Penny won't be comfortable this year taking
photos with Santa, we decided to take our
own Holiday photos!
"You smell like beef and cheese. You don't smell
like Santa at all."
