We basically had our own private mini movie theater where they showed “The secret life of pets 2” in Danish.
We were filming some scenes with Monty and Molly watching the movie. That might sounds easy but let me tell you with a crazy happy kitten girl like Molly and a grown up man like Monty that knows exactly what he wants and does not want, it takes a long time! 😉 We don’t want to force either Monty or Molly to do anything they dont want to, so it just takes some times with a whole lot of toys and playtime.
The awesome team of United International Pictures Danmark had prepared the day with a lot of candy for us and toys for Monty and Molly.
Days like these are magical and so much fun and makes it all worth it to be social influencers!
You can watch the finished result at Monty and Molly’s instagram and facebook pages.
We hope it makes you smile! 🙂
Igår var vi på en virkelig fed location til filming med Monty og Molly!
Vi havde praktisk talt vores egen private hyggelige biograf, hvor der blev vist Kæledyrenes hemmelige liv 2.
Vi skulle filme nogen scener med Monty og Molly som sad på biograf sæderne og så filmen. Det lyder jo ret nemt, men med en fjollet katte pige som Molly og en bestemt og voksen herre som Monty, tog det altså et par timer. Vi hverken kan, eller vil tvinge dem til noget som helst, så det blev i deres eget tempo og via leg.
Resultatet blev rigtig godt og virkelig sjovt.
Skønne United International Pictures Danmark havde linet op med alt muligt lækkert til os og legetøj til Monty og Molly.
Dage som disse, gør det bare ekstra fedt at lave det vi laver! 😀
Det endelige resultat kan ses på Monty og Mollys Instagram og Facebook, hvor vi netop har startet en giveaway med intet mindre end 24 biograf billetter til filmen fordelt til 12 heldige følgere.
Du kan deltage på alle 4 kanaler.
Iøvrigt er der stadig få billetter tilbage til forpremieren nu på Søndag. Vi holder en fest af en meet-and-greet i Lyngby biograf Kinopalæet, hvor du kan møde os og Molly. Vi åbner filmen med en Q&A om hvad vi laver og de mest spurgte spørgsmål om Monty og Molly.
We had a vet appointment with an eye doctor for both Monty and Molly.
We wanted to know if Molly would need eye surgery due to inverted eyelashes.
Monty has had runny eyes for weeks now and a week on eyedrops didn’t make any difference. So we wanted to get a thorough check-up just to be sure it wasn’t something like cataracts or something!
They both did so well, even though the sweet vet did all kinds of tests on them and the results were not what we were expecting!
Molly does not need a surgery at least not now (maybe when she gets old and wrinkly)! Monty has mild conjunctivitis and it’s easily treated with eyedrops 3 times a day for a week!
A lot of people have been asking how we introduced Monty and Molly to each other, how they became friends so fast and if we used a special method.
The short answer is yes! We used a special method when we introduced them to each other because we wanted to make it right the first time. We wanted to do everything we could so we would increase the chances on them getting friends and not enemies because making two cats become friends after them having a bad first meeting, can definitely be a challenge!
After hours of searching all over the internet on “the best way to introduce two cats to each other”, reading articles from vets and watching youtube videos, we found that the best way for Monty and Molly would probably be the method Jackson Galaxy is using and teaching. Find the article and video with him here!
Watch the video of me trying my best to explain how we did it. I will say that this is my first “how to” video and after editing it, I realised that I talk A LOT and not always in correct English! 😉 So bear with me okay..
In short steps of what we did:
Made Molly her own room with everything she needed.
After a few weeks when she was flee free and also had gotten used to her new room, we made a “safe wall” between her room and the hallway where Monty had access to.
We placed Monty in another room while we sat up the fenced barrier between Monty and Molly and placed a blanket on the fence, so they couldn’t see each other at all.
Then we fet them their favorite food on each side of the blanket.
They could hear and smell each other but they couldn’t see each other. This step is really important to maintain at least 3 days or until the cats doesn’t care anymore about the sounds on the other side.
After 3 days of feeding them on each side of the blanket twice a day, we started to lift the blanket a tiny bit.
They could now see a little bit of each other, while having their favorite food.
We continued this method around 14 days where we lifted the blanket a little more every other day. (Important to note that if you do this and one of your cats starts to show sings of aggression, you need to take a step back. Put the blanket all the way down if you need to. You have to have patience.)
Then we scent swapped by placing Molly in the bathroom.
A good idea is to take a small space at a time so the cat don’t get overwhelmed and scared.
While Molly was in the bathroom we let the door to her room be open so Monty could go in if he wanted to by himself. (Do not force your cat.)
They both did so well that we continued the scent swapping and feeding on each side of the blanket a few more weeks until we finally let Molly out of her room to explore on her own while Monty was being pampered and brushed in the sofa. When he saw her walking on the floor he emidiatly knew who it was because we had been taking it so slow and he didn’t even seem to care, but instead stayed on Michael’s lap.
Molly had access to the entire house supervised a few hours every, until we felt safe enough to let them be together without us watching them.
Have you ever checked your cat’s teeth? You definitely should, since dental problems are the most common disease in cats. Cats are secretive by nature, and it can be difficult to tell if a cat is in pain.
Today we had a vet appointment for Molly because we suspected something might be wrong with some of her front teeth.
When we adopted her about four months ago, she had the most perfect set of front teeth, but recently we noticed her gums looked red, swollen, and irritated. We called the vet and made an appointment.
We are using Monty’s vet for Molly since we love the team and it’s a part of the shelter from where we adopted Monty, so whenever we visit the vet, we are supporting the shelter cats!
The vet, Katrine (Kat), examined Molly and said that they needed to get some x-rays to see what was going on with those front teeth.
We had to leave Molly as she was going under anaesthesia, and saying goodbye to her even though it was only for four hours was difficult!
When it comes to Monty and Molly, we are so soft and Michael even asked me in the car if we could just stay in the parking lot and wait for her so we could be close to her. But we pulled ourselves together and drove home to keep Monty company while we waited.
Four hours later we picked up our little girl. She was very tired and still drunk from the anaesthesia (and still is).
It felt so good to kiss her and she was clearly very happy to see us!
Kat told us that the x-rays showed that one of the front teeth needed to be taken out, and they were able to do that while she was under the anaesthesia. Everything went perfectly and Molly also got a teeth cleaning.
When we got home, Monty greeted her with headbonks and a lot of sniffing. She obviously smells weird to him but he isn’t hissing or anything.
Right now Molly is sleeping in her basket and Monty is laying next to her, like he is watching over her. He is the best big brother!
I dag havde vi Molly en tur til dyrlægen, for hendes fortænder i under -og overmund ser altså bare mærkelige ud!
Da vi adopterede lille Molly for ca 4 måneder siden, sad hendes tænder snor lige, som en Colgate reklame, men her kort tid efter, er hendes helt små fortænder på mærkeligt vis rykket sig! Det lyder mærkeligt og det ser underligt ud, så nu var det altså tid til dyrlægen.
Vi bruger altid katteklinikken på Kattens Værn i Brøndby (https://kattens-vaern.dk/katteklinik), hvor vi i 2013 også adopterede Monty fra. Kattens Værn er jo absolut ikke nogen rig forening og de har da også underskud på alle adoptionskattene og vildkattene de redder, så hver eneste gang du vælger at bruge Kattens Værns katteklinik, støtter du deres kæmpe arbejde for alle Danmarks katte og du kan være velvidende om, at du ikke støtter en privat dyrlæges fede bil, men til gengæld katte i nød. Det kan vi godt lide at tænke på, men uanset hvilken dyrlæge du vælger, er det bare vigtigt at du stoler på personen.
Nå men vi afleverede Molly i morges og efter at dyrlæge Katrine (Kat), havde kigget på hende, vurderede hun, at der skulle røngent billeder til, for at kunne se om der var nogen af tænderne, der skulle opereres ud. Så lille Molly skulle i narkose.
Det var jo absolut ikke sjovt, at køre fra vores lille pige og vi skulle da også lige tage os sammen, til rent faktisk at starte bilen ude på parkeringspladsen, hvor Michael forsøgte at overtale mig til at vi da sagtens kunne sidde og vente i de 4 timers tid. 😉
Da vi hentede lille Molly igen, havde hun fået opereret 2 tænder ud og det bekræftede os i, at det var den rigtige beslutning vi havde taget, ved at tage hende til dyrlægen.
Operationen var gået godt og hun havde også fået tandrens.
Monty blev rigtig glad for at se sin lillesøster igen, også selvom hun tydeligvis lugter af dyrlæge og er halvfuld, den lille stakkel.
Lige nu ligger de ved siden af hinanden. Molly i sin kurv og Monty ved siden af kurven, hvor det ligner han ligger og passer på hende.
