Paperwork!

Now that we have several different veterinarians (Chuck's heart vet, our regular vet, the holistic vet, and then services needed for The 'O' Cats)...I decided that I needed to get all our cat health paperwork collated and organized.

Easier said than done!

Piles and piles of paperwork!

I went through stacks of paperwork, and I found a lot of receipts and detailed information, which I then organized.  But, there was some stuff I was still missing:  where were my receipts from my first days trapping The 'O' cats: Hobo, Sweetie, and Honey?  I searched high and low.

There you are!
Turns out, I had neatly stashed that paperwork in a envelope years ago...and then tucked it away!  No wonder I couldn't find it.
Yay!
Took over an hour, but I now have everything stacked up by cat.  Think I may buy some three-ring binders, and file every page from oldest to newest.  Seeing the paperwork from Sammy's euthanasia and the missing Honey gave me a touch of sadness, but now I am organized.  This means I can look up dates of last vaccinations, or when Patty O'Malley and Sweetie had their rabies shots.

On the other hand, losing an hour definitely bothered us more than the cats. Angel did her usual early morning yowl: here is the photo I took of that!

Notice the white blob on the floor
outside the bedroom door
And Chucky was so happy to have both of his humans dancing attendance on him, that he ran up the cat climb in the dining room, and hung out there, watching us from on high!

"Silly humans!  I am above you!"

Love the tail tip

  2. That is a lot of paperwork. But you sure do need a system to keep track of it all.

  3. I have a file folder for each cat, it takes up almost half a file cabinet drawer. That tail tip is cute :)

  4. Good for you!

    My mom finally decided last year the best way to tame cat paperwork was to scan everything. About the only paper we have now is our licenses, but they're kept in our emergency kit (along with Mom's important papers, too...and a backup of the scanned stuff :-O).

  7. I need to do the same thing! I have a folder for each cat, but what's in the folders is out of order. I'm thinking 3 ring notebooks might help too.
