It’s a road trip Meow Monday for us. We spent the long weekend visiting family in Massachusetts. It was Snuffy’s first road trip and, considering he’s an 18-year-old cat, he did fantastic.
We had to take him to the urgent care vet before we left because he was having some eye issues. We were already planning on taking him with us, but the eye drops every few hours sealed the deal.
Just today I read an article about how senior cats are stressed more easily and how difficult it is for them to adapt to any changes or disruptions in the household.
Here are a few photos of a very unstressed Snuffy. My favorite is the one in the middle all curled up on our bed. Besides the eye drops, the things that stressed him out the most were not being able to sleep on our pillows night and not being able to explore the rest of the house.
Snuffy is such a special boy. He has the best personality, loves people, and is so easygoing. Now we can list road trips to the list of things Snuffy’s done.
Meet Cedar, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.
Cedar is a pretty 1-year-old female domestic medium hair who needs a new home. She is currently supervising the humans in the Administrative offices at Lollypop Farm so you’ll have to ask to meet her at the Adoption Desk.
Everyone knows vacation food is a lot different than everyday food. It’s usually not as healthy but it’s sooo good. We come back to Massachusetts to visit family but we always manage to have a few favorite meals and snacks while we’re here.
Here are a few photos of the places we ate and what we had.
We’re visiting my parents for the weekend and my mom pulled out some amazing items from Disneyland.
This Disneyland Guide is from 1968, the one and only time I ever visited. Even though I was only 3 at the time, I remember so much about that trip.
Here I am with my mom on It’s A Small World
Inside is a map of Disneyland and all the attractions from 1968.
But, my absolute favorite Disney item is this huge map of Disneyland from 1968. It’s huge, at least 3 feet by 4 feet. It’s been folded up in a dresser drawer since the day my dad brought it home. I cannot wait to frame it and hang it in my office.
This is a little peek at one corner. I’m so in love with this map!
There’s a rumor that my parents still have some of the original paper tickets to Walt Disney World. I’m going on a hunt for them tomorrow. I’m pretty certain there won’t be any E-tickets because I know my brother and I used those up.
I’ll be sure to post on Instagram if I find them!
It was a long day of travel. Traffic was bad and we had to stop a lot to wrestle with Snuffy and put in his eye drops.
Doesn’t everyone take their 18-year-old cat on a road trip?
He seemed to enjoy the ride and all the new sights. Although, he was a little miffed he didn’t get to go for a walk even though we put on his harness and leash.
The medicine seems to be working and he’s looking better already. He’s still not happy with me but that’s okay.
Snuffy has been having some eye issues and his regular vet didn’t have an appointment until next week. We ended up taking Snuffy to urgent care, that’s right, there’s urgent care for pets. The diagnosis is that he has an injury to his cornea and we came away with instructions on eye drops, eye ointment, and pain meds.
We got home and got him settled. I cleaned his eye and did the eye drops and gave him dinner. I could hear him snorting and snuffling as he ate and as soon as he stopped I went to get him to finish up his meds. I couldn’t find him anywhere. My son joined in and we looked all over. He finally found Snuffy under my bed. It’s been 2 hours and there’s no way he’s coming out. He’s pretty grumpy from all of today’s activities and isn’t in a mood to forgive me. Now I’m waiting for him to decide he’s hungry and come back out from under the bed.
He acts so much like a dog, we forget he’s a cat. He’s totally acting like a pouty and angry cat right now.
