I would like to wish all of our Mom’s a belated Happy Mother’s Day.
I got my Mom a super cool card:
I spent Sunday being the best son a mom could hope for. Well, after I woke Mom at 7:20. What can I say, I’m not perfect.
Anywho, we woke up, ate breakfast, and headed out to the flea market to see Dad. We only stayed for a tiny bit because Mom didn’t want to be there but is really trying to get me used to being in the car. Going to the flea market is a 20 minute ride each way.
Mom was really sad yesterday. She told Dad it was the first Mother’s Day where she felt incomplete. As most of you know, Mom doesn’t have human children. She never felt inadequate as a woman before because her heart has always been full of love for Mya, Khia, Jamison, myself, and all the other animals in our house. This year, Mom felt really lonely and hurt. She said she was surprised by the hurt and loss she felt. It’s just like if it were human children that passed…she can have more dogs, but they’ll never replace the ones that are gone.
I worked REALLY hard to cheer her up. I mean REALLY hard. You will never guess what I did for her….
I WENT SWIMMING!!!!
Notice my smile fading as I get closer to the water???
I hated EVERY single second of it but boy did it make Mom happy for the 15 minutes we were in the pool. The things we do for our parents.
To make matters worse, I had to have a bath right after because of the chlorine in the pool. Ugh!
After that we were all exhausted and took a long, wonderful nap. We slept right until dinner time!
Sleeping. That brings up an interesting issue. Ever since Khia….left (I can’t say the other word), I have nightmares almost every night. Mom and Dad know it’s different than my typical dreaming because lately I cry and howl. I don’t even howl while I’m awake! Mom hung up a dream catcher but it’s not working. I don’t sleep alone – I curl up with Mom or Dad. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really appreciate your input.
Finally, you might recall Jamison’s incident from the other day. Mom did some research and one of the common causes that she came across for poop outside of the litter box was constipation. Yesterday she was in the bathroom where Jamison’s litter box is and he came in to do his business. Sure enough, it seems he is constipated. He was struggling to go and when he finally did go, it was small little pieces. Although he’s mean and untrustworthy, I hate to see him suffer. Does anyone have any suggestions for this issue?
Well, I have to go get ready for Mom to come home from work. It’s my favorite time of day! Talk to you all soon!
