Update on The Gang

So, here we go again. This time with no resolution or promise to write more often.

What has been going on with us? Aside from Worf passing away… 😦

img_20180517_165538Data has teeth issues. Finally our new vet pointed out some lack of vitamine C. Now he is on a daily dose of vitamine C, some homeopathic pills for joints to help with his jaw and lot of cuddles.

He also had bumble foot, but Traumeel did the trick. No laser therapy needed this time. And he now spends his days on a VetBed.

Spock is his usual crazy self. Chasing Data around. His (presumably) seborrheic cyst grew larger and our new vet said she would like to take a look, but later as it is no emergency.

Both of them are so zen with the two toddlers in the house that even when Bubble jumps form the back of the couch right near them, they don’t even blink.

img_20180519_190640Kirk is on diet. Apparently he is a little bit too heavy. And, as he has too a lack of vitamine C, his joints should be spared of the burden of carrying 1.3 kg. So no more dried food for him because it has too much sweeteners.

He also has a lump on his belly. More exactly it is a breast tumor of an unknown nature, but the X-ray didn’t show any metastasis, so far so good. It will be removed on Wednesday.

img_20180523_161610Archy is the new boy in the gang. We brought him home on the 5th May and he comes from a family that thought a pet is a nice present for a kid. When the kid got bored, the family had an issue.

For the moment he is in quarantine in our hall way. This position allows him to participate to the family life and get used with the little biped brats. He is more at ease with us now, not running anymore for his life when we get close to him. And he is the loudest wheeker ever! First thing in the morning he wheeks for food.

Hopefully we will get our big fat assess back on this blog. 😀 If not, we are on Facebook.

Kirk's tales

Late Happy birthday! for Data

kirk_profile_2We’ve been busy with the book… We are sorry for letting this blog empty, but we hope of coming back. Some day. No more promises. 😦

But today I would like to wish a late happy birthday to Data, who turned 3 on 15th of October.

From a psychotherapist point of view, I may say he overcome pretty well the trauma of the 4 months spent in the pet shop in a very small cage along with some bunnies.

From a normal, jealous guinea pig point of view I really don’t understand why the human female insists on saying that he is the sweetest piggy. But let’s keep it positive, after all it was his birthday…

He received a very nice box as a gift. A box with two exits. A little bit unpleasant for him as he had now reason to chew a second exit. But he still enjoyed the box.

And Spock was very attentive and protective and went inside the first to check the safety of that box.

Well, next birthday is the one of Worf. I look forward to see what he will receive. I might want to check it first.

We wrote a book!

data_profile_2Imagine that! We wrote a book! We finally did it!

We have no idea if it will be published or not, for the moment we are just asking opinions about the first draft of the manuscript (Aaron, our human sent you a PM via Facebook!) .

But so far so good.

Next step would be proofreading, finding an illustrator and (self-)publishing the book.

We are even planning translations into Romanian, French and German. I mean, for sure it will get out in English and Romanian. For the rest, depends on the demands.

If you are curious about what it is, we can only say it is meant to be educative for kids and parents. And it was written in cooperation with the little human brat, Bubble.

Sorry, my brain is numb now. So not very creative for the blog. I just wrote this to let you know that we are fine, we still write, but we are super busy with this project. Hopefully we will have more concrete and good news soon.

Bear with us!
