An Awful Day

Well working in accounts month end tends to be a bad time but today was a day I want to soon forget.

Not only the fact that thanks to a random test by our IT department I couldn’t leave work until 7pm tonight when I got home I find that one of my cats, the other having gone walkabout as he does occasionally, has had to be taken to the vet by my mum and we fear the worst to be honest.

He’ll be X-rayed and scanned tomorrow but I’m preparing myself for bad news. He’s had a very good life, they both have, but as outdoor cats this is always a potential hazard. All I want now is either him back health and happy or we’ll let him go. We’re not going to let him suffer.

So yeah, bad day, and here’s to a better tomorrow.

I'm very sad about your cat. I hope that you have closure either way.

Hugs! Tori

Well there's good news on that front it seems. Having been prodded, poked and scanned they can't find much wrong with him aside from a slightly inflamed throat which they're treating with anitbiotics and steroids and they've declard him fit enough to come home, apparently much better. A couple of other things ahve earned my ire since then but I'll just be happy to have the kitty back.

Glad to hear he'll be "alley catting" around soon enough!

lol dunno about that, actually after I posted that he got worse again and we thought that this was it but he pretty much miracle recovered on Saturday and now he's close to his old self again, although he'll most likely never be 100% again and we'll have to keep him inside. At least now if something happens he'll be at home and comfortable and that at his ripe old age of 14, at least, is good enough.
