Tuomo Tuesday

Today we are still using up some of the four squillion photos Äiti took over summer, and we thought a shot of Tuomo-veli was overdue.  
Tuomo continues to be the grumpy old man of perheeni. In truth, he wants Äiti all for himself, and doesn't like other cats much. This of course means he gets teased and chased a bit, and this makes him more grumpy. His thyroid seems fine at the moment, and he gets tablets twice a day, crushed up in creme fraiche and hand delivered -wherever he is in the house - on a spoon. This fatty, yummy treat is making him have a bit of a 'sag bag'. However he is impossible to get pills down in any other way, and his weight is not a problem at the moment, so Äiti is willing to pamper to his fussy needs and do the spoon routine. She is verily under the paw. And of course Äiti is making sure he gets a good share of cuddles and attention. We are trying to make sure he gets a fair share.

Tuomo has a pretty good deal, getting his pills in creme fraiche. I bet the rest of you are a teeny bit jealous of him!

Sadly, our Mommy has mastered the technique of pill popping so we don't it (when needed) infused in treats. BUT she does give us a treat afterwards for being good. :)
You've got a pretty good deal, Tuomo!

Aww I think Tuomo is gorgeous and I know all about looking grumpy because thats my look too. I get my tablets crushed up and in a syringe because no ammount of creme fraishe would get me to take them otherwise.. Hugs GJ xx

We happen to think that old photos are GOOD photos. Mainly cuz we are still using June an July on some days. MOL!

Especially when they tell a real story of TODAY better than the TODAY photos (or absence of TODAY photos) do.

We think Tuomo is absolutely beautiful. Quite the dapper boy as all tuxies are.
There was a kitty at the shelter where we used to live that was sort of cranky when other cats were around. The staff called her crabby cakes until one very special volunteer had her seen by another vet and found she was severely arthritic.

Mum can't get pills down me either, and several vets have tried to without success. Maybe she should be offering me creme fraiche too.
