Frankie news: he’s going to the vet today to have the rest of his teeth pulled. Right after I posted a couple of weeks ago that he was doing great, he started yelping when trying to yawn and sometimes while eating. A visit to the vet showed that his mouth is getting worse again, and our wonderful vet worked Frankie in for today.

It’s going to be a big surgery, but I expect that Frankie will come through it just fine. I really hope that it fixes the problem – from what I’ve heard, it almost always does.

I know that some of you are wondering how he’ll manage to eat. Right now, he gets blended canned food every morning and night, and he also gets some Babycat in addition to the regular kibble the cats eat. If he has any problem with eating, we’ll make sure to remedy that. I mean, you guys know Fred – I wouldn’t be surprised if he decided to hand-feed Frankie 75 times a day.

I will, of course, keep y’all updated.


“Hallo!” Chip in the Ripple Rug. Have I perhaps mentioned that they love that thing?

Ressler with all the toys. That boy cracks me up!

Gaston in mid-leap. I love the wide-eyed “What is going ONNN?!” look on Ressler’s face.

Chip’s all “I’VE GOT IT!!!”

So close!

“No, I’ve got it!” said Gaston. (He didn’t either.)


Video! Chip is hangin’ with Uncle Frankie (and by “hanging with” I mean “watching Uncle Frankie play.”)
