Belle Vet Visit Part 2

At the beginning of the month, we noticed Belle was doing her mouth gagging thing again. It was exactly two months, just as the vet predicted, since we last brought her in the day after New Year's. We weren't so worried this time since we knew what the problem was, but nonetheless, it's sad to know she has to go through that painful and unpleasant procedure of teeth trimming and anesthesia again. Here she is in her carrier on the way to the vet. I made sure she was nice and comfy for the ordeal with her bed and lots of treats.

She's a plucky little one and recovered quickly but to have to go through this every two months? I feel so bad for the little one! There's gotta be another way...

Here she is giving Bert a kiss. Or rather, "Whatcha eating over here? I want some!"

Happy St. Patrick's Day! The Wheekers will be celebrating with lots of hay as usual! :-)

Recent Kitchen Creations

Hallo my dears! How are you all? Here are some of the things I'm been trying out in the kitchen in the last month:

Samosa with phyllo pastry dough

Curry stir fry noodles

Hubby tried his hand at making roti prata. This one had daiya cheese folded in the middle. Yum!

My first time making a sweet & sour dish: pineapple, bell pepper, onion, seitan.

I bought the "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" book and tried their two most basic recipes, the top being chocolate and the bottom being vanilla. It was easier than I thought!
I couldn't get the frosting right though (hence no picture of that). It just kept melting away off the cupcake! Need to find out where I went wrong! Any tips?

SFACC Shiloh & Pepper

Say hallo to these cuddly cuties! Shiloh and Pepper are sisters, 1.5 years old.
"Shiloh is the tricolored girl, Pepper the brown girl with red markings- are a bonded pair who must be adopted together. They are sweet and social girls who are looking for a new home and a new life!"

Shiloh markings are quite similar to Belle's! I hope these girls find a loving home soon.
