When we picked up Widget from the Animal Hospital yesterday the vet gave us some medication for her. I love the relaxed way that the vet said you need to give her these tablets and an insulin injection. I thought fine, I’ll just borrow a tracking team to locate her and the Israeli army to wrestle her to the ground first then, shall I?
So last night at about eight o’clock Gary held a wriggling squirming cat while I managed to force three pills down her throat and then give her an insulin injection. About ten minutes later Gary found a soggy pill on the carpet so we had to grab her all over again and force the last pill down her. We’re supposed to give her the insulin about every twelve hours so I got up at about eight the next morning (early for me!) especially to give her her jab and tablets.
Nothing doing! She saw me coming and shot off like a flash of lightning on legs! I chased her downstairs when she doubled back and shot back up the stairs with me puffing behind. She then bolted under the wardrobe somewhere. I couldn’t even see her less still get her out so I had to just leave her there because we had to go out.
We got back about half past ten and she came to sniff the shopping bags and see if we’d got anything for her so we grabbed her straightaway and managed to adminster all the pills and the injection. But we still have to do it all over again this evening!
Did manage to finish the second chapter of Emily Swann though. Started on chapter three but only managed half a page before Widget came down demanding some food. Let her out in the back garden, put some washing on and changed her litter and that’s been about my day so far!
