Yes it is a hard life being a cat, I mean my owner has had me to the vets 3 times in the last week. I’m now suffering the indignity of having lost some teeth, I’ve a bald neck where the vampires took the blood and now a bare belly after a scan!
Apparently having reached the not so old age of 14, I’m now ill! Have I been poisoned or is it just old age. I don’t care either way as I’m getting spoilt rotten with as much food as I can bother to eat and lots of fish.
What is upsetting is my owner, she’s such a different girl to the one I used to know. She used to drive me to the vets, it’s only a short distance and one I often cover when prowling at night but now she can’t drive. Something to do with too much information that her head feels like it will explode. She moans about things happening too quickly and not being able to react as quick as she should. I know it’s a problem as last time she drove she got beeped by other drivers for braking too fast and too late – not quite a smash thankfully. She doesn’t like the colours and noise either so no more radio in the car as we drive along.
So instead she decided to put me in a basket and walk with me there. As I said, ‘I prowl this area of a night’ I don’t need this hand holding. Then her arms started to ache, she kept having to change arms, then rest. Then I was in the basket between her two arms. We got there and she sank into a chair before the call of the vet. In the room she had to lean on a wall whilst the vet checked me over, she could hardly stand up. She has just lost all her energy and I hope she gets it back. Hmmm, I thought I was the ill one.
I got the ‘he’s off the critical list and down to serious now’ verdict. Just hope that doesn’t mean I’m coming off fish rations. I thought that would cheer her up but she just keeps crying and getting to over emotional, she used to have a grip on life, now everything is just too much.
Maybe she should have some blood tests and a scan and get working on all these symptoms.
I can recommend a good vet, but apparently a good Doctor is hard to find!
