Who’s a sweet boy? Gus is! Just one reason to actually like going to the vet.

After this past week, I have even more respect for working and/or therapy animals. Sure, Gus wasn’t able to calm Luke down when we had to go to the vet’s office, but he does an awful lot of good in the waiting room at the clinic. Whether it’s keeping kids entertained and occupied or soothing nervous animals, Gus is a hardworking cat. (And yep, the furry one is much better now, and still has a few days of antibiotics left for his kidney infection. If I’m lucky he’ll forgive me in a week or so.)
Audi is the calmest of the Martin girls, so is perfect for therapy.

My co-worker and friend Karen got one of her three dogs, Audi (her sisters are Paris and Dublin), certified as a therapy dog and often spends time on weekends taking Audi wherever she’s needed to bring comfort to whoever needs it. What better way to feel better is there than fuzzy-belly therapy? Nothing as far as I’m concerned.
Luke isn’t calm enough around strangers to be a therapy cat, but this sweetie is.

You know that saying, “Everything’s better with bacon”? Maybe that should be “bunnies.”

Of course, for me, there’s nothing more therapeutic than this guy. 🙂
