I am now assigned to work from home. It’s great to get to be here with Rumpy and the kitties more, even if I’m working. Especially now. Rumpy has taken a turn for the worse. He still eats well and never says no when I offer to take him outside, but his breathing continues to … Continue reading
We’ve just come back from our follow-up with the vet. The initial exam was unremarkable. Normal temp. Breathing sounded better. His lymph nodes felt OK. Next more X-rays to have another look at that lymph node. I also asked if they’d aspirate the tumor on his leg to see if it could be a lypoma. It’s … Continue reading

The therapy has … Continue reading

We received this card in the mail today. It’s from Sage’s vet. We were so touched! Past vets have sent cards, but we’ve never received one where the staff wrote personal messages. I think they’re keepers!
