N flew to SG today. He and a mate are going to go and watch the F1 over the next few days. The drawcard is really the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but the races are pretty fun to watch too 😊 I’m not a Chili Peppers fan, so I decided not to go this year and just let the boys have a long weekend away.
It was a good thing that I didn’t go too, because Kitty did not have a good day today. She threw up and was losing her balance, and then also peed in the corner in the bedroom, which she’s never done before. The losing balance and the peeing in the wrong spot just wasn’t right, so I called the vet to see if I could get an appointment today. Luckily they could accommodate me, and I made my way over soon after I made the call.
Kitty was being her usual feisty self when we got there, so I felt a bit like I was crying wolf! It was as if there was nothing wrong with her, and she was making a point to prove it to the vet herself then and there. The vet couldn’t find anything physically wrong with her, and suggested that we do a blood test to rule out a few other things as well. But that involves sedating Little Miss, since she won’t let anyone get even near her, let alone draw blood.
The vet was hesitant to sedate her so late in the afternoon, in case there are complications with her waking up, and the clinic won’t be open in the evening to help with any issues. But I said to go ahead anyway, because I don’t want to have to put her through the stress again tomorrow of heading back to the vet. Plus she’s so strong anyway, chances are she’ll be ok.
And she was. The vet said she might be groggy for a while when we get home, but she was up and alert before we’d even left the clinic! Well that was an unnecessary stress on me! 😂
Her test results weren’t too different from her last test in January, so that was promising. They have to do a few more tests in the next few days, and they’ll call me with the results, but in the meantime, there’s not much else I can do but monitor her.
And so far, she’s doing better than I expected her to be! When I thought she was losing her balance and was unsteady on her feet, she still managed to jump into – and out of – the bathtub with no issues! 😲
She’s also started to eat again. Not with the same gusto as she usually does, but it seems like her appetite is slowly coming back. She always manages to surprise me, this little one 😊
I was so emotionally exhausted when we got back from the vet that I fell asleep on the couch, and never got to the gym tonight. Hopefully tomorrow she’ll show signs of further improvement, and maybe I can head out then 💪
