This cat’s expression says it all. What the hell happened today? Are we having a “scare Debra” day? Did I miss the announcement? Honestly, if I’d known I would just have stayed in bed this morning.
One client with a dog that has a probable urinary tract infection. The poor thing squatted about 15 times in 20 minutes. Walked into another client home early this morning to visit with a group of three cats, and there is blood all over the place. Looks like a health issue for one of the cats, rather than a cat fight. And I am trying to get one of the feral kitties, who was spayed on Friday, to eat or pee. I’d be happy with either at this point. Luckily she let me force feed her a slurry of turkey baby food and water a bit ago, and I’ll give her some more this evening, so at least she is getting something in her system. But she gets to go to the vet tomorrow am if she hasn’t eaten and peed by then.
If all of this keeps me out of the vet’s offices over the Thanksgiving weekend, then I’m good with it. Holiday weekends are just notorious times for pets to decide to have medical issues, so if we’re doing holiday sick pets early and we can get through Thanksgiving with everyone healthy, I could live with that. But what a crazy day. If this was a test, I hope I passed.
