Jake and Bathsheba

Jake Therapy

A few weeks ago I mentioned that Grandma was in the hospital. Well, she's now in a health and rehab center to build up her strength so she can return to her assisted living apartment. I read that Grr, Midnight, and Cocoa helped their lady recover from the flu, so Mom and I thought that some "Jake Therapy" might help Grandma. Unfortunately, that meant I had to get into the prisoner transport unit and ride in the car for nearly half an hour. I didn't protest too much about getting in because Mom put some catnip on the towel on the bottom of the unit. It made me mellow and I didn't yowl.

Well, here I am outside the center:

My unit looks very small next to the sign for the center. It's a new place, so the trees are just sticks in the ground right around the building.

Here I am on Grandma's bed next to Judy, her little stuffed cat:

When you pet Judy, she will meow, open her eyes, and move her head. If you pet her long enough she makes a sound like a purr. At least I didn't have to share Grandma's roast beef scraps with Judy.

Grandma was very glad that I visited. I hope she gets better soon.
