Well, the cat is now in the hospital on a round-the-clock IV. She seemed okay initially, under the circumstances, and the vet looked at her Monday morning. But later that day she became very lethargic, so now she's in the hospital for more serious care (her kidney values are high right now, poor thing). It was nice that my boyfriend came straight from work today to meet me at the vet's to visit the cat, and when he cuddled her up, she just closed her eyes and purred. We all know who she loves!
So I'm trying not to worry much, although my health anxiety extends to my cats and not just myself, as you see! I guess we do tend to treat our pets like they were our children.
I've also been pretty run-down and head-achy today, I guess from a little relapse of whatever flu-like thing I had last week, on top of trying to catch up with some reports that were due at work while I was sick.
