Allergies and Missing Keys

As all of you know, I’m not fond of dogs but Vanessa, my next door neighbours love them. She has two dogs, a pug named Boo and a toy poodle name Pooh. One time, she visited my home and she brought Boo and it really startled all my cats. I told her it’s not a good idea to let them inside a same room. We just rushed to go out and decided to just hang outside on the porch. Boo jumped on my lap and lied down as if wanting to pet him. I noticed some kind of a skin lesion and pointed it to Vanessa. She immediately took notice of it and told me that it is maybe the dog’s yeast allergy acting up again, find more about that at www.lifewithallergies.net.

Fortunately, I know a very good veterinarian who is just close by. I told Vanessa of Dr. Wilson and asked me to come along with her. We knocked the doctor’s door for minutes but no one was answering. I told her that I could call him as maybe he was in his clinic but I left my phone in my house. We went back to my home to get my phone. So now, I was reaching down my pocket to get my keys but it wasn’t there. I tried finding it on all my pockets but there was none. We tried going back to trace our footsteps that maybe I accidentally haven’t noticed it falling from my pockets but it was nowhere to be found.  I carefully tried remembering if I really brought my keys and thought that I didn’t because we immediately got out earlier because my cat was hostile to her dog.

I asked her if she has tools that I can use to open my door and luckily she did. After almost an hour of breaking in, I was successful and got my phone. I called Dr. Wilson and asked if he can check out our neighbor’s pet. He told me that he’s now on his way to his home and we can come by. We waited for the doctor to pull over and waited until a few minutes until he was settled in his home. We knocked and told him about Boo’s condition. He examined his skin and told Vanessa that it was indeed an allergy. She told him that it is a recurring condition and told her of the allergy medicine for dogs that another veterinarian prescribed 6 months ago. He asked about the dosage that the doctor prescribe and just told her to just keep it giving it to the dog but to a longer period of time to be sure that the allergy is gone. He also reminded her to always bathe her dog and don’t allow Boo to come near dogs who she suspects has the same condition. She asked how much is the fee but the dog begged off and told her it’s nothing. We thanked the doctor and we got Boo home. She fed her first before giving her the medicines. We are so fortunate that we have a very reliable and generous veterinarian around. I just told Vanessa to just give him food to say thanks.

My Other Hobby

Aside from being a Volkswagen enthusiast, I also love cats as pets. I have a number of cats in my home. I like cats better than dogs because they are independent, smart, intelligent and has character. I have three of them. First one is Loki, he is an American short hair or ASH. He’s a tri color of grey, cream and black. I got his name after the villain half brother of Thor because I used to real comic books when I was young. I still have some of the books because I treasure them because it was from my favourite grandma. Second is a Himalayan Persian cat named Loops as he was named by my nephew whose favourite cereal is Fruit Loops. A friend of mine gave him to me as a birthday gift two years ago. He is very calm and affectionate. And lastly, my recent addition is Sally. She is also an American shorthair as I’m planning to breed her and Loki. She has a sterling silver coat with black markings. She really look elegant and sophisticated as she wanders off and leaping around my home. I wonder what Sally and Loki’s offspring will look like because I’m really excited.

I’m really fond of them as I even often share a ride with them in my Volkswagen. It’s nice that they’re not like dogs that put their head outside the windows and hang their tongues the whole ride. Loki and Loops just sat on the car seat and then Sally just slumped on the dashboard. She looks like a stuffed toy.

It’s nice that a veterinarian lives next door my home so it’s easy to have my cats get checked up. I don’t even have to go into his clinic as he told me. I was just in my backyard playing and feeding my cats as he approached me. He was lean and tall. He also has a long beard to go with his mustache. He told me that he is a veterinarian and I can always come to his home if something came up about my pets. He is Dr. Wilson and he also loves cats. He is very generous as he often offers my pets free check ups from time to time and I return the favour by referring him to my cat loving friends. My friends also love stopping by his clinic because he really knows that he was doing. I brought my new cat Sally to his home to see if she’s healthy. He told me that she’s perfectly fine but as always, we needed to take precautions about roundworms in cats as they are most common lately. He also reminded me about the symptoms in pancreatitis in cats, like the article here, as my other cats might develop them in time. I also asked him on how to breed American Shorthairs as I am planning to breed Loki and Sally. He told me that he would gladly help me through it, step by step.
