Once again... the cool thing about taking not-so-great photos is getting to do the WHOLE THING OVER!! The Baby Beau cat took a nick out of my middle finger the first time around, and I somewhat successfully attempted to photoshop it out. I absolutely love the OPI Ballet collection and at this point, I'm thinking I should get backups of at least two of them, one of which is You Callin' Me a Lyre?. (I'm seriously NOT a fan of the names. lol.) Also... thank you gals so very much for the prayers and good thoughts for my Sal Pal yesterday. More on that (and cat spam) after the polish. :)
I've got nothing new to add to what I've already said. I love it. Sheer, shiny, peachy pink perfection in three coats. And it's so smooth! My DH kept rubbing my nails as he was holding my hand after this dried. :)
Anyway, you know that yesterday evening I took Sally to the vet, which was an experience in itself. Getting her there was fine, but once in the exam room, it took me holding her by her scruff and the vet tech basically dumping her out of the carrier to get her onto the exam table. Sal is a very high strung cat and does not like new people at all; so when the vet came in to look at her she became very aggressive, backing away, hissing and growling, big eyes, ears back, the whole nine yards. The vet had to call another tech in, this one clad in those elbow length heavy duty reinforced gloves and bearing a towel to throw over my naughty little cat so she could be examined without hurting someone. Even so, the vet would not go near Sal's head or face and refused to take a blood sample without sedating her first, and could barely get an accurate heart sound because of her nonstop growling. "At this point," the vet said to me, "this will be a short visit." Fair enough. She did gather that everything sounded and felt normal inside, and sent us home with some antibiotics and some advice for lessening stressors around the house. She also appears to have had an allergic reaction to a flea treatment and might need to go on steroids, but we'll deal with that after we resolve her tummy issues. So now I get to collect a poo sample (YAY!) before we can rule out anything major, and take her back after the antibiotics are finished.
Baby cat. The next couple weeks will be filled with lots of monitoring and documentation, but I feel better just knowing we're on the road to helping her feel better, one way or the other. <3 Thanks for reading and thanks again for all your kindnesses. <3
