“NEGATIVE FOR RABIES!” I was so glad to hear that result over the phone tonight! There had been enough matter to test- so now there is a big sigh of relief that I can get my animals their rabies shots but on my time-frame and not someone else’s!
There will be a period of a few days when the necropsy will be finished and perhaps the mystery of what caused sweet Panic to go ballistic will be revealed.
There was concern that the infection in Mike’s foot had traveled to the bone, but the MRI shows otherwise. They are still not releasing him and when I went to see him this morning, he was not a happy camper. I had no idea he could complain so much! I know he is scared and bored- but good heavens- one hour of complaints was all I could handle so I got out of there.
Indiana’s fever has gone down and now that they know my clowder isn’t rabid they have taken him out of isolation and put him in the general room. Some of the girls have fallen in love with him- but he still has to stay there because his temperature is 104 so it isn’t over yet.
