This morning I succeeded in capturing Piper who has been pretty sick of late. Normally, I can get close to this beautiful tortie girl for she loves head rubs and pets. But for the last few days she has been acting off and I finally got my hands on her.
I was alarmed to hear her trying to breathe so I rushed her to the 24 hour animal clinic several hours from here. This place offers the best care around but you also pay through the nose for their services.
Piper has an acute viral respiratory infection. Because I have a quarantine room with an oxygen tent if needed, she was given two shots and she is now home with me. She is really sick and being an outside cat she is not happy about being confined. I thought she had pneumonia or bronchitis as bad as she was breathing. I would have preferred to have waited until this morning when my clinic opened up but I didn’t think I had that kind of time.
Today is clean my house day and try to make room for the wheelchair, scooter and various other items coming home with Mike. Unless we hear otherwise, he will be home June 6th.
I am going to do something right now and offer up on an auction a signed, Limoges cat ashtray with gold lining. I need to come up with the ER money and I feel like such a slob asking people for monies all the time for these cats. This way at least, someone will get something for their monies.
I don’t know how to set up a large auction on this block, but I have a ton of products here I could auction off. I am starting with this plate- please see photo. It is signed and the starting bid is $5.00. If you are interested, just leave a comment here and a way to get ahold of you. The auction will run till June 7th. Hopefully the photo will generate some interest-
