Dr. Doolittle - Cat Wisperer
I took this little "female" Siamese to the vet this afternoon. What a mess. She did not like being handled by the vet, so she flew off the table and the vet said I will not be able to help her. She said that I would not be able to administer the eye drops that she needed. I said, sure I will, just give them to me. I got her back into the carrier by cornering her, so she had to go in. Luckily, I used the cat career that has the top opening as well. While she sat in there, I dropped the fluid into each eye, with no major problems. When I got her home, I kept her into he carrier and looked at her neck. I was able to cut away most of the hard crusty skin that was dangling to find a little gash about a quarter of an inch. I whipped it with some water and a q-tip. I hope it will be okay. The vet did not give me anything for her sneezing, but said it should run its coarse (or get worse) HUH? Oh for crying out load! So, this little one has been letting me touch her a little and I think it is because she is sick. But, I am wandering when she gets better will she remember that I was nice to her or will she revert to being a meanie?
Like this little one! Hissing and freaking out. I got bit by the other Siamese. My fault...they wanted out of the pen. I let them, but then realized..how the heck am I gonna get them back in there. That was a night mare. They were trying to climb the walls. I doubt they will get to come out of there for weeks now. I have a lot of work on them.
