Visiting the "Little Vacuum"

"Dude... Again?! You are one lucky cat..."

"Пылесосик." (Pweel-es-os-ik). "Little Vacuum Cleaner." That's what all the people at the veterinary clinic call Lyalya...

I visited him there yesterday and held him for about an hour and half...

He was pretty scared, not as relaxed as he was while recovering from his second surgery last fall... It took him over an hour to finally start purring. They ended up finding the head of a hippo from a Kinder Egg in his kidney. The head of the elementary school gave the girls the chocolate eggs with a surprise toy inside for Easter; the toy must have been from then...

Argh! And we've done our best to keep little stuff away from him!

At the least the language nerd in me had fun helping out an Italian family while hanging out at the clinic... Now I can talk quite fluently about heartworm in both Russian and Italian... Hopefully that will never come in handy!

Ah kinder eggs...I am forever throwing away bits and pieces of those toys. At least now you have a good reason to say "no" when the girls ask for them.

I suppose laughing is okay now that he's better? Too funny!
