I brought home 2 live pets and a very large credit card bill today. Fritti is wearing a blue satellite dish that sets off his ginger fur nicely. Dozer's mystery lump is probably Very Bad News, but I don't have the $180 to get the lab tests done. The vet did not seem sanguine about our options, however.
It was a day fraught with alternating worry & guilt but for tonight I am happy to have them both home & in one piece. The pressure bandage gets removed in 4 minutes and then I can go do laundry, buy cat food and give him some dinner and a pain injection at 8pm.
I just wish I was off work tomorrow to play kitty nursemaid.
