Happy Valentine's Day!

This message is a little bit late because it was a busy weekend, but Louie and Fuzzy would like to share the love with all their friends. (Meanwhile, Sylvie is nursing another injury to her tail, courtesty of Gingy. I would post a picture to show you but Sylvie is barely letting me touch it to rinse it with chlorhexidine.)

  2. Two that love each other and two that hate each other, eh? What an irony!

  5. Hi Cliff and Olivia, Liz, Siena and Chili, Nan, and Judy--thanks for stopping by. Poor Sylvie...this is the third injury to her tail! At first i thought maybe Gingy backed her into an exposed nail under my workbench or something, but there aren't any nails sticking out. Saturday morning i heard Sylvie screaming and yelling (she is the most talkative member of the family at the best of times, and spends much of her day growling at Gingy) in the basement, as well as some thumping noises. I ran downstairs, to find Sylvie crouched on the rug in a very defensive position, her ears back, yelling...and Gingy nowhere to be seen (she slipped past me and ran upstairs). Sylvie was bleeding rather profusely from what looked like a claw strike...to the underside of the base of her tail. I've been rinsing it off (and getting yelled at and accidentally clawed daily) but i may have to throw in the towel and take her to the vet for some antibiotics...since she often keeps her tail fairly tight to her tush, the wound isn't having a lot of chance to dry in the air.
