Subject: RE: July-2010-DeClutter & Exercise Accountability
In case you are squeamish, I will just call it "aspirating" - a syringe and a half full of proof that Tigger's white blood cells have been doing their job. She said that was about the equivalent of a half pint or so in humans. He's had a couple of shots, and they want to see him again on Monday, before I go away. She said it was an old (couple of weeks or so) wound (looked like a bite) that had become infected, and that he had probably licked and pulled the fur off himself to get at it. He had licked so hard that he had abraided the skin, which is now dead. The vet said the best thing is for it to crack open and drain even more.

It's about time that stupid cat of mine realised that he can't take on all comers now that he's 12! And I thought he's be cheaper than the dog! At least he's eating a bit now, and the bill at 38 could have been worse, I suppose.

Consequently not a lot has been done, although I have organised keys for the plumber and Peter so that they can hopefully get all the floorage stuff sorted while I am away.

I suppose I could get on with some ironing.....
