One of the duties I had to take over since Mitch broke his leg is giving one of the cats subcutaneous fluids twice a day, due to kidney disease. It's a geriatric cat problem. We already had one cat die from the same condition last year. The things they can treat animals for these days!
Luckily, Mitch has her trained with treats to submit to this. I'm sure it bothers her more than it does me. I have to pull her skin out, jab the needle under, turn the IV bag on and hand her treats. And she wants her treats!
First real outing since Mitch's leg break was on Sunday. I'm still recovering from a virus so it was a little too much for me, but we got a change of scenery.
I was ok at the first stop, the Pickin' Circle that he is in, and some friends met us there.
Then I took him to Barbershop Choir rehearsal. He missed out on the group back rub since he sat in a front pew, but later the guys got him a chair in the choir box. I left him there and went for the first real grocery shop since he broke his leg (because I've been sick over 2 weeks).
Mitch is healing well, I think I can finally calm down. Hopefully I will be at full energy soon, too.
