In exciting in a not-so-good way news, we're a little worried about Page, because there's been blood in her stool. It happened a little while ago, and then it went away, so we were hoping it was over, but then it started again. We're really hoping we don't have to take her to the vet, because as stressful as it was to take Oreo and Mimsy to the vet, it's even worse with Page. She's our little jumpy girl. With a nervous bladder.
So in an effort to avoid going to the vet, we called our friend and went to PetSmart to get some food for sensitive systems. We'll keep an eye on her, and if it doesn't get better, that's when we'll start making arrangements to take Page to a doctor.
In the meantime, we also bought a fancy new cat carrier! It's one of the soft-sided ones, with hearts and pink carrying straps! We've left it out for Page to see and get accustomed to, but it's looking like it will be a while before we get any use out of it. Page has found it and explored all around it, but she refuses to go inside. Athena even put catnip on the bottom of it...which got Page to explore all around it again, but she still won't go inside. She did rest a little on the door thingie, though. We think she's just extremely wary of going inside things, which would explain why we couldn't get her interested in the fancy cat bed we bought for her to help her stay warm during the winter. Anyway, this is going to be a long process.
Today I'm thankful for friends who are quick to come help, having a fancy new carrier for Page (which we might be able to use someday), our order from CD Japan being on its way (they actually shipped it Monday morning, which was Sunday night here, but I kept forgetting that I'm thankful for that), having a normal workday today, and getting to watch Undercover Boss Australia last night (even if it made us really, really want pizza).
