The Grudge is Gone!
It's safe to say that Macho no longer has a grudge against me for taking him to the vet. For a few days after he wouldn't come and sit by me on the couch since that is where I picked him up to put him in the carrier for the vet. He would hop up on the couch to sit with me, then he would stop dead in his tracks as if he suddenly remembered me picking him up and taking him. I snapped this picture of him on Friday while he was sitting with me. Guess his grudge didn't last too long.
Not much else has been going on in Macho's world. He might be upset with me in a few weeks because we are planning a week long vacation in California. My brother will be watching Macho, and when he watched Macho over Christmas, Macho pretty much ignored my brother the whole time. I am hoping that he will warm up to him since he will be there for a week. This will be the longest I've ever been away from Macho! But we are ready to get out of this Michigan cold and get into some warm weather.
Today I sent in a claim for Macho's pet insurance for his vet bill. This is the first claim I've ever made, so I am hoping it is accepted. If not, I'm starting to think this pet insurance is a bit of a waste of money. We can only use it if Macho has a first time illness, has a broken bone, gets a burn, or (I hate this one) if we have to euthanize him. This claim that I sent in was for almost $80, so hopefully it is accepted since I paid more than that for the pet insurance last year!
We hope all is well with everyone else!
