Reggie goes to the vet...and comes home...


Today Reggie went to the Vet for his yearly teeth cleaning.  I get to take him before work, and pick him up afterwards, which works out well.  However, that means Marley has to stay at home, by himself, without his best friend (Marley gets his teeth cleaned in a couple of weeks).

I decided to record Reggie's home coming.  From the moment I walked in the house I heard the strangest "meow" coming out of Marley - definitely not one I am accustomed too.  You can see how upset he is and is telling me all about his day without Reggie to share it with.  He wouldn't even go up and sniff Reggie like he usually does after Reggie comes home from the Vet.  In fact, right now as I write this, he is still giving me strange meows thirty minutes later and is on top of the stove and has refused to come and say "hi" to his brother...

Reggie on the other hand is happy to be home and is bird watching - almost like nothing happened today!!....Marley is the more "sensitive" kitty, so he hasn't quite forgiven me for taking his best friend today.

You know sometimes it takes some time. I recommend extra treats. Treats are always good... Yes. Lots and lots and lots of treats.

What a great video. They are adorable.
We're getting ready to celebrate Marley's birthday tomorrow, aren't we?

Yes, when one cat leaves home and comes back, sometimes it helps to take something that smells like home (cat blankie, your pj's or a bath towel)and rub them all over the cat who smells different now to get the 'familiar' scent back on them. Sometimes it can take as long as 48 hours for them to be friends again...but I think it probably didn't take that long with 2 Sphynx cuz they are so gregarious! Glad he did ok with his dental, too.
