Whenever Bob seems to be having a streak of bad luck he likes to say, "When it rains, it pours." I never understood that until this week. For the past few days, I've had a bit of a stomach bug. Don't get me wrong. I would never let a little thing like an achy stomach keep me from eating, but my tummy has been hurting. Vinnie suggested I try eating less, but when has less food ever cured anyone? On Saturday, Miss R. took me to a place that wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be. That's right, boys and girls. She took me to the see a vet and I discovered that the people at the Sunset Pet Hospital really did want me to feel better. I won't tell you where the veterinarian stuck the thermometer,but that was less than pleasant. You would think that after enduring the aches of a tummy bug, and the indignity of having my temperature taken, that I would be left alone to pout in peace, but no. After all this, I heard Miss R using a four letter word.....that's right, she said, "DIET!" As in Miss R and the doctor want to put me on a diet! Apparently 26 pounds is too much cat for some people to handle, but I say there is just more of me to hug. Who wouldn't appreciate a big, furry Ollie hug now and then? Oh, the indecency of it all. Like Bob says, "When it rains, it pours." It is definitely pouring now. Stay tuned, children. I go back to the vet on Tuesday. In the meantime, maybe it wouldn't hurt to try eating a little healthier and maybe exercising a teeny, tiny bit. Boys and girls, do you have any healthy eating tips for me? What about exercise? Do you have any ideas on fun ways I can get my body moving a bit more? I need to hear from you and soon....before that horrible four letter word is spoken again.
