Well, I drove my folks to the airport to go on their annual trip to
Well, I am managing to get Yoshi to take her antibiotics without too much drama. And they are totally working! I actually sought out her yawns for a sniff test and they totally passed. Her breath smells like angel farts.
She is not absolutely free from future vet intervention, however. The SPCA called this morning and a couple levels on her blood test came in a little low. They want to check her kidney function with a urine test and they need a sample. I asked how the flipping hell I am supposed to catch cat pee. I had visions of trying to slip a plastic container under her butt when she was taking a slash. It wasn’t a pretty visual. Basically I have two choices. I can leave her overnight so they can put a needle into her bladder and get pee pee that way. Um…NO!!!! Or I can get plastic, non-absorbent litter and then clean and sterilize her cat box and then collect a sample and run it to the SPCA ASAP. Guess what I will be doing this week?
I doubt there is anything wrong with the little shit as she is happy and full of beans. Her coat shines and her appetite is good. She is the picture of health and is full of purrs. But the vet just wants to do this simple pee test to make sure there is nothing wrong and after neglecting this bad breath issue for so long (BAD MOM!!!) I feel like I should go a little farther with the testing just to make double sure she is TOTALLY healthy and fit. I just hope this whole bad breath thing wasn’t some painful or uncomfortable condition as I would feel terrible that she might have suffered because I didn’t fix it right away. I don’t think so but you just never know. Is this the kind of doubt and guilt moms feel with their kids? Torture!
