After The Vet Visit

We saw the vet at 3 today. Despite weighing in at only 6 lbs she fought him tooth and nail. She does have a badly infected tooth and ears. I won't go into the gory detail but because of her age, heart murmur, kidney disease, and most likely thyroid issues there is no way she could be anesthetized to remove it. He did a lot of head shaking and I am not a fool, I know where we are going with all of this. So he put her on antibiotics and shot lots of medicine into her ears and wants to see her in a week.

She has hated me for about 4 hours now. She paced the house continuously after we got home and stationed herself in front of her water bowl when she was not pacing.

About an hour ago she climbed in my lap and snuggled up for a little purring time.
Right now she is nestled behind me in the computer chair (a natural heating pad).
So forgiving. So loving. I hate what's coming.


  1. Sending you love and hugs for you and your sweet kitty-baby.

  2. I can understand how you must be feeling, Kathy. We had our Shih Tzu, Gizmo, for 14 years and it was so hard to let him go. You're heart's never matter how much time you've had.

  3. We know how you feel....Kramer is on Lasix and heart pills. Bless his heart, he hardly moves around much any more!

  4. Rosey looks pitiful (sp) by her water bowl..... (Your daughter)
