“Fall Back!!” More Sleep for All!!

When a House is NOT a “HOME”

Trying to concentrate on some things I have to get done, but I am having a hard time doing so. It’s quiet here, WAY too quiet!

Dakota’s Dad dropped him off at the Vet this morning to get his teeth cleaned. He has had the procedure before, his blood work was 100% normal,  but I still worry.

I thought I would use the quiet time here to get some work done, but I can’t. I can’t concentrate. Nothing feels right.

I look to my side while typing at the computer  and the giant ball of fur that is usually sleeping peacefully next to me isn’t here.

I hear doors open in our hallway that “Security Dog Dakota” would be on top off,  but  there is no barking.

I get up to get something to eat and I have no one stalking me to see what I am eating.

Sure, our cat, Cody, is somewhere in our home sleeping. As is often the case with cats, he hasn’t a care in the world that his brother isn’t home.

I guess I am less cat-like than I originally thought. Until that smiling bundle of fur comes through our door later today, our house just won’t feel like a HOME.

Hurry home Dakota!

Your Mama (and Dad), and yes, even Cody too,

ARE MISSING YOU!!!!!

xoxoxo

UPDATE! Vet called at around 1pm. Said they took Dakota earlier than they expected to. All went well!!! Said he has been out of anesthesia for some time and will be ready to go around dinnertime!  Vet said his teeth cleaned up great!!!! Excited to see my crazy boy!!!  (Remind me I said that tomorrow when he is on my nerves again lol)

Hi everyone!

Well, if I  were living with Mom and Dad first, then I might have acted like this when they brought Cody home. But….Cody was living with them first!

Will you help my kitty brother? Vote for AmazeCats Next Top Cat!

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota, and today I am gonna do something super brotherly (but don’t you dare tell that I did this!) You see, my brother, Cody is participating in a contest, and since he is NOWHERE near as adorable as I am, (BOL!), he NEEDS VOTES!

Look at this face:

cody please vote

Pretty pitiful isn’t it? Can’t SOMEONE teach this guy how to SMILE?  He has an expression like “Uh, duh…did you call me?” BOL!

The contest is being held by AmazeCats

Who is AmazeCats? Glad you asked! AmazeCats makes:

Every purchase is a donation! All of the proceeds from this deck will be donated to Stray Cat Alliance, a great non-profit organization aimed specifically at caring for and finding homes for stray cats.

Vote for AmazeCats Next Top Cat

Because there are many special needs cats with way more votes than my brother, (and in all honesty they are more deserving, I am not kidding when I say that, I mean that with all of my heart) he won’t win the contest.  That’s ok! He just wants to finish in the Top 32!
Here is the video that my Mom submitted for Cody (the intro was done by AmazeCats)

Isn’t that the most EMBARRASSING THING EVER?

Do you feel sorry enough to vote for my slightly rotund feline family member?

If so, you can vote once a day UNTIL MARCH 29th! Cody has a few blogging buddies who are also in the contest and they would love to make it into the top 32 as well! The cool thing is you can VOTE FOR MULTIPLE CATS IN ONE DAY! So when you vote for Cody you can vote for them too!

Sorry to ruin your day with a kitty on the blog, but sometimes with family you just gotta do what you gotta do!

Thanks for your support!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
