It’s the worst feeling in the world when you’re non-speaking buddy is sick + you have no idea why.
What to do???? My sweet little kitty Megumi hasn’t been eating for a couple of days + has been moderately lethargic. All the veterinary clinics were closed on Sunday so I had to drive her 45 minutes into “town” to an emergency clinic.
Thank god it wasn’t something REALLY serious or that 45 minute drive would have been excruciating for her! I can’t imagine what it was like in the old days when folks had to send for a country doctor + then wait hours for his arrival!!!
I took her to Fish Creek 24 Hour Pet Hospital. It was first come first serve – the waiting room was packed full, but I didn’t have to wait too long. They weren’t sure what was causing her to not eat but gave her some shots for dehydration + appetite stimulants. Boy were they nice + INEXPENSIVE!!! I knew Canadian healthcare was cheap, but I didn’t realize the same went for animal healthcare!!!
It’s said that cat owners are less lonely + have higher morale than those who don’t have a cat – kitty cuddling releases oxytocin, the body’s “love” hormone!!! Being a transplant to a new country, it’s hard to meet new friends – especially more difficult since I’m not allowed a work permit! She’s my little pal!!! Megu is still not eating very much, so I made her an appointment at a local doctor tomorrow – when cats don’t eat it becomes really hard on their kidneys, which could cause some mejor problemas. Wish us luck!!!
Other than that, ain’t nothing much is happening here in the country!!! Except for cattle drives!!! I was driving on errands + I saw homemade signs reading, “Caution Cattle Up Ahead”. I was like, “huh?”. Durrrrrr!!!!
What a tourist!!! Anyway, there hasn’t been much adventuring around these parts because the weather’s been wet + soggy. Here’s some pictures from Jeff at his job on “Hell on Wheels”.
Yeah I took the picture on the road!!!! Don’t worry, it’s the country!!! Ain’t nothing but straight lines for miles!!!!
Well y’all that’s the word from this part of the world! Hope you’re week has been off to a smashing start!
