Sorry for the lack of blog posts in July … life offline has been a challenge. Here’s a tip: it’s never a good thing to find out your cat is diabetic, but it’s a bad thing to find out after an attack of both acute pancreatitis and ketoacidosis requiring several days of hospitalization. And the subsequent (fortunately temporary) renal failure from either the drugs the first vet gave him.
Then there was the cat biting me (or more correctly, me getting my fingers in the way of his teeth while trying to force antibiotics down his throat). And having to decide whether to go with the subsequent antibiotics for me and the potential c-diff from that vs the very scary potential infection from cat bite. Oh, and the subsequent quarantine of the cat because his rabies vaccine was out of date.
Finally, there was the death of my not-two-year-old Kenmore fridge and the subsequent tossing of $$$ worth of food. Sigh.
I’m hoping to get back to more regular posts in August! In the meantime, the cat is better, my hand never got infected (whew!), and the new fridge should last at least 5 years since that’s how long my new extended warranty is.
