Lazy Sunday for Cottage Pets

Webster is on the mend and enjoying his dog bed in a new location. I brought the one down from the attic because it has an egg-crate foam mattress and a rectangular shape so he can stretch out. I put it in his favorite spot so he can see me in the kitchen and look down the hall into my bedroom. He's such a good patient. I'm still at a loss about what was wrong with him but I'm pretty sure he was stung by yellow jackets. I have to remember to replenish my supply of antihistamine capsules that helped his rapid breathing get back to normal. He had the same reaction once before when I witnessed the evil insects stinging him. 

Tabitha insisted on spending the night outdoors last night and she promptly crashed on the nearest chair this morning after she ate and she hasn't moved a muscle in hours. We are all enjoying the air conditioning. Hope you are too.

Awwwww Webster,

I am so sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Those nasty yellow jackets!!! I hope you feel better soon. It sounds like mom is taking good care of you.

So good to hear Webster is doing better. Yellow jackets are the worse, and so many are allergic to them. Take care sweet boy.

I'm relieved to hear you were able to administer first aid to dear, sweet Webster. Tabitha is a brave kitty to spend the night out of doors.
