Just when things start to calm down around here, the stuff always hits the fan. As soon as the sun came up yesterday I as off on the long drive to the emergency vet-again.
No, not Pup this time. It was this guy. I was up all night with the poor fella watching him struggling to breathe. He is one of the indoor/outdoor kitties and he's been sleeping outside since the weather has warmed up and in all the hubbub with Pup and her leg I didn't notice he was in trouble. Thankfully the vet thinks it's just a really bad sinus infection. He got a shot and some pills and I've got my fingers crossed he will be on the mend soon. My house looks like an animal hospital. Pup still penned up in the living room and now a sick kitty in the kitchen. It never ends.
But that's not all......The Mister got called up for jury duty this week so I am having all this fun all by myself. This was going to be the week that Pup came out of her pen and we put the house back together and started living a normal life again but that's not happening now.
And.......since there is NO WAY we can both get Covid at the same time with all this pet drama going on, so in an abundance of caution he's going to be quarantined downstairs when he comes home. It's a particularly horrific trial with over a hundred potential jurors all being shoved in little conference rooms. The Covid numbers here are surging and no one is wearing masks anymore and the friends I have that have picked up the new variant have been very sick. I can't imagine dealing with all these broken critters while being sick myself so I made him up a little kitchen downstairs where he can just shut himself away until we get a few days of negative tests behind us to be on the safe side.
Trying to settle my brain with all this is impossible. I have the Tour on in the background but I am running around taking care of business instead of spinning or knitting. I did manage to clear off the dining room table and set up a sewing area so maybe.....just maybe I can still work a little on the baby quilt. As I've said many, many times before...it's always something and I'm so very, very tired of it.
