Health bulletin

So, I've gotten my days off, and an ointment to put on both my eyes in hopes that the conjunctivitis will clear within the week. There's only one thing I'm not too happy about and that's the fact that I won't be able to wear my contacts for as long as I've got to persist with the medication - which means my vision will be greatly impaired for the next few days. This will make my planned shopping trip for some nice new tops a little bit harder than I anticipated, but I'm sure I'll manage somehow. Keeping up with LJ is going to be a challenge, too, I wager...

The results of my bloodtest came back negative -- I'm healthy as a horse, so the weight gain must have been due entirely to my chocolate intake over the months that I was depressed. Bummer! I'm going to have to shed these pounds the hard way, looks like...

On my way back from the pharmacy, I dropped by the vet's, and made an appointment for Manasse to have the snip next Tuesday. Now that I'm home, I can't look him in the eyes, and feel terrible about what I've done. But when I come back from England in a few weeks, I don't want his minder to tell me he's been shpritzing the furniture while I was away. I want him to be on his best behaviour, and not ruin my chances of ever finding someone to take care of him when my need to travel waxes great again -- does that make me a bad mum to my moggies? I hope not.

Poor love. I'm going to have to think of some treat to make it up to him.


phendog, your Bitter End copy went in the post this morning. I was clean out of Jiffy bags earlier.

Your poor eyes! :-(

You could never be a bad mum to your kitties.

I know it's all in my head -- Manasse is totally unaware of the fate awaiting him, and since he doesn't go out, I don't think he'll miss his goolies anytime soon...but oh! they're going to cut my beautiful boy!

Awww. It's gotta be done, though--else he'll make your house smell like a boy kitty. Poor little man.

I've got him some fresh heart at the butcher's...he's going to be pampered for a while!

You're still managing to read the screen alright though. :)

Poor Manasse. My mum's old cat Pootle had his chopped, it was such a shame as they were so cute!

So it's not just me then, who thinks cats' balls are cute! ;-)

He was a silver tabby/Persian cross, and they were all sweet and furry.

Um... yes.

The results of my bloodtest came back negative --

I'm so pleased that everything is in good working order - so much better than being able to say 'I told you so!'

Our cat had the little op when he was about 3 - there are a number of younger cats in the neighbourhood whose looks make us think that he'd sown enough wild oats by then to ensure the continuation of the species. Can't say it ever seemed to bother him that much!

So am I, really, even if my GP now thinks I'm a bit of a hypochondriac!

Of my other, previous toms, only Emil lived and died fully intact; and both Beau and Aloysius were 'fixed' at a young age. Manasse is 13 months old now, and a walking hormone bomb: he sticks his bum in the air when you pet him, and goes around screaming in the night. It's time he paid a little visit to the vet...but I still feel as if I'm depriving him of something. ;-)

Good grief, Hedwig -- something always seems to prevent you from working, lol. It's like you only pop into the office at intermittent intervals, rubbing salt in poor Jobworth's wounds ;-)

I hope you're not suggesting I'm skiving -- but it does seem a bit improbable, doesn't it? Which is why I'm fully resolved that once I get back from my CoRo cross-country chase, I'm not going to take another day off until I can close that door behind me forever. And I've told all my body parts, too! ;-)
