Happy Easter!

Vante is celebrating Easter not with bunnies but with some of life's little pleasures: naps, sunny spots and string (even if all she can find is the string from our blinds).  Don't worry, I'll find some painter's tape here shortly and get that string out of her reach and find her something safer to play with.

Like Mother Like Daughter

My husband caught Vante and I in bed this morning with the exact same body language. 
-Arms crossed
-Squinty eyes

April Showers

I wasn't able to post a photo every day in March.  Please accept my apologies.

Last week Vante was having litterbox issues.  She was scooting, trying unsuccessfully to defecate and licking her bottom.  She was obviously very uncomfortable and her bottom was red and inflamed.  So, I took her to the vet and after x-rays and an exam it was deemed that she had to have her anal glands expressed. 

Needless to say Vante didn't appreciate or enjoy the experience.  She expressed her opinions extremely loudly during the entire process.  But afterwards she was back to her old self.

I'll just have to keep an eye on it and she'll need to have her glands expressed every once in a while.  It depends on the animal but it could be as often as once a month or every 3-4 months.

But other than that slight hick-up Vante is doing great!
