Last weekend, Henry even wanted to get out and get some of his holiday shopping done. We made a trip to Petsmart so that he could pick out something nice for Cupid. After careful consideration, he decided to get Cupid a pack of mice (the kind that Benny loved to eat), some cat grass (something else that Benny liked to eat) and a few cans of special cat food (something that Henry himself would like to eat). Pretty thoughtful gifts if you ask me!

Christmas is really sneaking up on us this year. Luckily, Henry was feeling better this weekend and could supervise the tree trimming. For the most part, he kept us on track. Although, after a bit of work, he did insist on taking a snack break!

Cupid has always eaten at her own special spot in a little bar area in the kitchen. This has kept her food safe from the pugs and allows her to graze all day. However, as she has aged, getting up to her special little eating area has proven more challenging. We moved a chair over to assist her, but recently that has become too much for her. So, we bought her a small table and gave her a new setup in the kitchen. We even got her a step stool to assist in getting on the table.
And wouldn't you know that Cupid's new table is getting quite a bit of attention for hungry Henry. At first he would just stand next to the table and smell. But, now he is getting a tad braver and is using the step stool to get a better view. How long do you think it will be until he uses the step stool to get on the table and help himself to some kitty food?

I'm not sure what it is about the pillows around here, but it seems everyone loves a big pile of pillows to lounge on. The weather the last few days has been a bit chilly and whenever the temps dip you can usually find Cupid seeking out some extra warmth on pillows or blankets. I think Benny would be proud!

The day after Henry's big day at the neurologist, Cupid had an appointment with our local vet for some follow up blood work as related to her thyroid issues. We are still waiting on those results. But this is not about her results. This is about Cupid being a cheap date at the vet.
Let's just say that Henry is 5 star pug at the vet and in comparison, Cupid likes to camp. Cupid reminds us why we are cat lovers in addition to dog lovers. Cats typically require so much less from your pocketbook. LOL
And look how well Cupid does in the car. She is just sitting there like a good little meowzer. She travels well and is the belle of lobby ball at the vet's office. She says she doesn't need no stinking box. She goes like a pug (in a harness and leash) and does a superb job. #CupidISaPug!

For the curious, here are snapshots from Henry's MRI. The area I circled in red is the spot of the hemorrhage. In the picture of the scan you can also see two other, much smaller black areas. Those are also small hemorrhage areas.
The area highlighted in red, also has some inflammation around it. You can see the inflammation in a different view. The white area is a bit of swelling which indicates that the hemorrhage is fairly recent. With time, the inflammation should subside.
Despite these scary images, Henry seems to be doing OK. So far, Henry has not had any more seizures since Thursday. Which is so relieving, but we are still a bit on edge and are watching him ever so closely. His vision does seem to have taken a turn for the worst, but we are working with him on that. We are so very lucky that Henry has weathered yet another storm!
