You know the saying “When it rains, it pours”? That’s the way 2008 has been…expensive car repair bills, expensive vet bills, Hubby gets the flu….then I get the flu…..then yesterday right when I am feeling like sh@#, Hubby says after getting a glass of water from the frig “My water is warm” WHAT?
I open the frig…..sure enough, it is warm….open the freezer and everything is thawed! How can this be” We just moved in 3 years ago…everything was brand new. Remember, we’re sick and all we’ve been eating is soup and hot tea so I just hadn’t noticed. Well, everything had to be pitched…yes, it was that warm.
After dumping everything….cleaning it out real good…..it really needed it (and I couldn’t let the repair man see it this way), we pulled it out from the wall unplugged it vacuumed, cleaned and stood there trying to figure out what happened. A little later, I plugged it back in just for the heck of it…..you guessed it, it started running….making ice….everything it was supposed to do!
My vet bills are over this fellow….Spot….
We have been doctoring him for a while now. He is 10 years old. The smartest of all my cats and will purr anytime, all the time. All you have to do is talk to him and the purr machine starts going.
He has severe arthritis in his back legs that is affecting his ability to eliminate. Nothing has worked to ease his pain on a daily basis so we have to really dope him up in order for him to feel better at all. He’s had 5, 3 day regimens of a morphine type drug over the past 2 months. I have decided this is the last weekend I will do that. After this prescription is finished, He will usually get a couple days of grace before his pain gets evident so we will see what a new week brings.
I have so many things to be thankful for….I will not forget that……eventhough today I whine. xoxo Rosie
