Wonderful Wednesday: My Day With Grammie

18 Jan

Jolie here: Mom took me to visit Grammie. She is in a special place that helps her; it is called ‘assisted living.’ Grammie is going to be 98 and can’t get around like she used to. Even though she really is a cat person, she enjoyed my visit with her. I think I was pretty good with the old lady. I sat on her lap and I tried to kiss her.

Mom said if I get good at this old people stuff, maybe when the triple-demic quiets down, she will take me to visit old people more often. There was only one problem though: it was a million degrees in the room and I really started to fall asleep. I jumped on Grammie’s bed and took a nap while Mom did other stuff.

When Charles was a younger man (about 6 years ago when he first came to the Zoo), he visited Grammie too. But Charles is kind of set in his ways and isn’t really a lap guy. Charles is a ‘don’t pick me up’ and ‘don’t make me stay on your lap’ kind of dog.

I could really get into this visiting stuff. Unlike Charles, I love car rides, new people, snuggles, and of course, lots of treats. But turn down the thermostat!!!!

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Elderly oftentimes are people who had pets up till they were moved into situations where pets aren’t practical or allowed. These visits by friendly dogs and cats are a happy, joyful thing, as you can discern from the expressions on grannie’s face in these photos!

      Yes. She had cats forever. We arranged a home for her cat when she moved there, but she missed her so. I absolutely agree.

        An elderly teacher here had cats all her life, too. When she had to go into a care center, she had a plush kitty that looked almost real, and she held that in her lap all the time.

          I thought about that. It might be comforting.

            This cat was amazingly realistic, which makes me think it might have been made for that purpose.

    Glad you got to see your Grammie. She doesn’t look 98, only 80 tops.

      She says she feels 98. But she does look young.

    Grammies do like it warm and cozy, but all things considered, you did great, J.

    Love and licks,

      Warm is one thing! I think Mom will need to bring me a fan next time.
