MOOSE HAS CAUGHT on that applying his medications is, for us, a team effort. He heads in another direction only when San Geraldo and I are in the same room. We’ve gotten skilled at the application. He’s gotten skilled at the avoidance. Only 4-1/2 more days of this. Oh, yeah, he’s healing well and obviously feeling fine. When he’s not watching us, he and Dudo are still avid birdwatchers, although not necessarily conservationists.
MOOSE SE HA dado cuenta de que aplicar sus medicamentos es, para nosotros, un esfuerzo de equipo. Se dirige en otra dirección solo cuando San Geraldo y yo estamos en el mismo cuarto. Nos hemos capacitado en la aplicación. Se ha capacitado en la evitación. Sólo 4-1/2 días más de esto. Ah sí, se está curando bien y obviamente se siente bien. Cuando no nos está mirando, él y Dudo siguen siendo ávidos observadores de aves, aunque no necesariamente conservacionistas.

Moose…..keep your eyes WIDE OPEN!!
He’s been relatively good… for a cat… but I wish he’d just relax!
If you could only disguise his medication as a bird.
Even then… he’s stubborn.
if looks could kill…
Oh yeah, I’d be a goner.
Tell him the birds love the ointment and will flock to him.
I’ll try that today… but he doesn’t even respond to his name, so don’t hold out much hope.
Very clever comments !
Moose is so beautiful and too smart,
Yes, clever comments. I should get everyone else to write my blog!
I love a good battle of wits!
It’s a losing battle. I only win with brute force.
Moose, like most cats, is savvy, sneaky and smart.
When we try to give MaxGoldberg a hairball concoction, he starts to run just as Carlos and u begin to move toward him.
Moose catches on very slowly. What he finally gets is it’s more dangerous when we’re both looking at him.
Moose is a good name for him. He is a bit of a chub isn’t he. Built moose tough.
He and Dudo are built so differently. They were named by the shelter, but Moose turned out to be the perfect name for him.
Cats don’t take kindly to medications it seems.
Thank god it’s topical! What he hates is the cold wet of the drop of antiseptic. But oh to try and give him a pill or liquid!
Our two see the red booties that we put on them sometimes and quietly disappear into another room. And even hiding them behind our backs doesn’t seem to work.
Our California cata would hear a traveling cage door rattle and they’d both be under beds. And we had an Amazon parrot, too. We had to sneak the suitcases down to the car during the night while he was covered and asleep or he’d have a huge temper tantrum.
Vary your technique, you can outsmart him.
That’s what we’ve been doing, but he gets more wary every day. Four days to go!
Cats never look in the wrong direction
not asked in the survey: roadkill
There’s no sneaking up on Moose. I have to make him believe m intentions are innocent.
