Caesar is doing somewhat better. The pathology lab has, however, manage to lose his blood tests. I’ve been waiting for the results since Monday, and now the vet has gone on holiday until after the new year. 😦
There is another vet at the practice, but this is the same one that saw Caesar a week before all the trouble, and said he was fine… These problems have been a long time coming, and he sure as !@#$ wasn’t fine.
Caesar did get a check-up on Thursday before the vet went on holiday, and she was satisfied with his progress, which has to count for something. However, I will be happier once they sort out the blood tests.
In other news, Sparky the Jack Russell has had the world’s worst upset stomach (just finished ten days of antibiotics), and the other cat, Titch, may have tick-bite fever. I have just come back from the vet with her. (A different veterinary practice – things are getting complicated.) Here are a couple of photos – from a while ago. I haven’t been doing much of the happy snaps lately.
Now we cross all our fingers and toes, and hold thumbs that nothing drastic happens over Christmas and New Year. Because during the festive season no-one wants to know your troubles, even if you are human, never mind an elderly cat or dog. Ho, ho, ho…
Tatting has been happening, but at a very slow pace, what with one thing and another. As if I don’t have enough on my plate, I am trying my hand at needle lace. Pictures to follow, if I manage to produce anything worthwhile.
I don’t know about anyone else, but for me 2016 has been hell on wheels. We’ve all been sick, humans and animals, often in batches. They say that all good things come to an end, hopefully all bad things do as well.
Thanks again to everyone who came past with positive messages and good wishes. 😀
All the best over the festive season, and may the best of 2016 be the worst of 2017.
