I've been crazy busy at school this week. I always seem to be on the run - but in a good way. In addition, our beloved kitty Spook has been ill. He's had the runs for a couple of weeks and he started spitting up foam. We took him to the animal hospital and had blood work done. It was close to a $300.00 visit, but you love your pets - what are you going to do? The good thing is there's nothing major going on with him in terms of feline diseases. He's on a special diet and taking medication to coat his stomach. He's got a bit of vim back and he's eating like a horse. The down side is that he's got severe gum disease and will require at least $1000.00 worth of dental work (cleaning and extractions). My advice: take your cat in for a check-up before it's too late. If your cat has bad breath, have your cat's teeth checked out.
I'm about to head out to a church rummage sale with Duncan. We've got to trek out to Scarborough. I hope it's worthwhile.
Have a great weekend. I'll be reporting back.
All creatures great and small...
Here's a recent picture of Spook. We adopted him from our local animal hospital around eight years ago. Someone had found him as a kitten wandering along a busy streetcar route. Nobody wanted him and he just got bigger and more blubbery in his adoption cage. The secretary brought him out into the waiting room to raise his profile. I was in to drop off our other cat Kiko for neutering. It was then that I found Spook (whom the staff called "Little Man") and instantly fell in love with him. He's affectionate and I couldn't imagine not having him around.
