One thing I have figured out over the past 5 days is how to have a lot of viewers and comments on a blog. Have a sick kitty. I would not recommend this way to “stardom” and “fame” but I have had so many heart felt comments in the past few days because of my sick Buddy. Thank you to all. I mean it. From the bottom of my heart.
Just a quick update—took Buddy to see Dr. Tracy at Metz Petz Veterinary Clinic this morning and his breathing is still rapid. His heart sounds good and he is eating and drinking and doing all the normal things so that is a good sign but we are not sure if the Rutin that we are giving him will help or not. Go back for xrays on Friday and will know more then so until then I hover and watch and try to keep Hissy Holly away from him. Geez. As if I needed anything else stressful going on.
What I have learned is that Metz Petz is awesome. A huge thank you to Dr. Tracy, Dr. Melissa and Dr. Nathan for their care and concern for Buddy. I could not have found a better place to take him. I know they will be honest with me and do right by Buddy and that is all that I can ask for at this point.
My world has gotten pretty small since Thursday—vets and home and that is about it. We are winding down the house cleaning and straightening out here and this weekend made huge headway on getting ready to put the house here up for sale. It looks like an orange dot sale here because Chris and I put stickers on the items that we are going to be taking with us back to Iowa someday. The auctioneers will hopefully come this week and give us an idea of what we have and what we can expect from the May sale. My Lima “vacation” is nearing an end. I must admit I am having some emotions with that. I have gotten used to being closer to family….it will be difficult to leave that behind.
I am hoping that my next post won’t be so Buddy centered! :-) I need to find something non catty to blog about now, don’t I? But if you have followed me for any length of time you know that I blog about what is on my heart so there you have it!
If you want to see something that will make you say “ahhhh”, check out this video that Christine of Random Thoughts of Midlife posted the other day.
Teapot Tuesday returns tomorrow—stay tuned. And thanks for the love and purrs!
