Test Drive

We took the animals to the vet today to get their records, clean bills of health, and ahem, sedatives for Calamity.

Don't judge. One car, two adults, two kids, a dog, a cat (that meows non-stop in the car) and 2331 miles!

Anyhoo, on this test drive I learned:

That Calamity still senses when she has to go somewhere and will hide. Under a bed. No amount of coaxing will get her out. Craig had to resort to gently nudging her with a foam nerf sword and then risked major lacerations while shoving her in the crate.

That the cat still meows while driving.

The boys will fight non-stop.

That the dog rides in the car really well, but still acts like a banshee with no home training once we get to the destination.

That the boys will fight non-stop.

That both animals got a clean bill of health, and sedatives for the cat. Though, she was calm at the vet. The dog hyper. The vet must have thought we had our animals confused.

That the boys will have the "You're not the boss of me!" discussion. A lot!

That they gave us pills and part of Chuck's retribution for being gone this past year will be to give the cat those pills. After he chases her out from under the bed.

That the boys will fight non-stop.

That maybe we should pack the foam sword!

That the boys will fight non-stop.

And if Chuck can't get the cat to take her pills, I'LL borrow them!
