Thursday the 13th

I had Fiona, one of the Scottish folds, back at the vet yesterday. This poor little thing. She has a foot infection between two toes on a back paw that has returned, and I have her back on antibiotics now. She's also been struggling with an ongoing eye issue. First the doctors thought it was an infection, then an allergy, then a herpes virus infection (which she had as a kitten, and therefore will always have in her system).

She's on eye drops four times a day now (YOU try to catch a shy little cat four times a day and put drops in her eyes!) and antibiotics twice a day, and, as perhaps the largest indignity, she has had to tolerate my soaking her back paw in an antibiotic solution for five minutes a day, three days in a row.

Is is any wonder that she runs whenever she sees me now?
