Mother Theresa is quoted as saying something along the lines of, “God never gives us more than we can handle, I just wish he didn’t trust me so much.”
I wish the same thing.
I just had to take Sid the cat to the vet with another urinary blockage. I feel guilty about it because I noticed him acting oddly this morning, but my back hurt, so I went back to bed after calling work. I woke again at ten, and he just started throwing up. That’s when I knew that he had to go. I’m just glad that I stayed home today, because both of us pretty much wrote off his earlier behaviour as being really old and cranky.
The new vet is very nice though. We just started switching the animals over to Dessau Vetrinary Clinic in Austin and away from Wells Branch Pet and Bird (also in Austin). The folks at WBV&B were very rude, and I don’t think they treated the animals very well. This vet has a doctor named Kellee Cambell (DVM) who is good with both the animals and the people, and was very understanding on money issues. The important thing is that she had Sid tested and on a kitty catheter in under 30 minutes, and he should do fine with such exemplary care.
Of course that didn’t stop him from puking on me. I’m going to have to do laundry now. Yuck.
