My Orange Baby

It’s been a challenging day. I’m glad it’s over, and everyone is home, safe and warm.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsCharlie had been walking from litterbox to litterbox, squatting, and depositing nothing. Every few minutes he’d try again. He looked uncomfortable. Usually, he would have been asleep. Something was very wrong.

Through the day, I waited for the vet to call. At 2:00 pm I finally did, after several Facebook, Twitter, and in-person friends asked me for an update.

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsI was beside myself for much of the day. The other cats offered moral support as they knew how.

Finally some news:

I was shown today have to give Charlie subcutaneous fluids. This will keep him healthier longer. I want to keep him around for as long as possible.

Suffice it to say, I am delighted to have him home as well.

Snug and comfy at home.
