Thank you, everyone.
I'm going to be headed to Massachusetts in the States. I come from Martha's Vineyard and that's where my family is. I do have a family Chi back home too! My dad has put so much weight on her since I left...
I had been working hard to shed the weight off her that she put on while she lived at my mom's for a year before I moved away, but now she's back to where she was, if not worse. So I'm going to be spending a lot of time exercising her butt and keeping her away from the cat food! Also going to be giving my dad a major lecture and advice on feeding her and what he can do to prevent her from getting the cat food. One of the cats also climbs into the trash and steals food out of the bin and Kina (our Chi) always gets some of what she brings out, so I'll be buying him a sturdy trash bin with a LID for Christmas!
I am Gemma's "favorite," so I was really worried about her at first. She's with me all the time and always wants to be by my side or in my lap. But I've realized she will be just fine and probably thrilled to see me when I get back. I just hope I'm still the favorite when I return, lol!
I will take pics of Gemma soon and post them. Definitely before I leave. I can't say she has grown any, lol. She's still just a little munchkin! But she's happy and healthy!
