We had a fun 4th of July. We didn’t want any real fireworks this year so opted for a bunch of things that made smoke and some of the ash snakes. We had a grand time lighting them off in the driveway. When dark rolled around the bugs were biting fierce. We loaded in Dad’s car and parked down the street and watched the booms and flashes from all the neighborhood. I guess since the public displays were all canceled due to COVID-19 people spent tons of money on their private shows. We watched for about 45 minutes and all had enough. We went inside and called it a night.
Grandma Jo and Grandpa Howie came up over the weekend and we made ice cream, and killed the ice cream maker in the process. Thunder was acting strange and not his usual LOVE ME LOVE ME self. Mom checked him over and found a huge bite mark on his tail, presumably caused by another cat that was afraid of all the fireworks the night before.
Thunder went to the emergency vet to be checked out and get some antibiotics. He is hiding out in Mom and Dad’s bathroom and wont leave. I am sure he will come around eventually.
He did venture out one time to roll in the clean warm laundry. UGH!
