We just got home from acupuncture and strength training. I am to take him in on Monday morning to do more strength training so he will get it more often.
The vet said that his tongue looks the best she’s seen it. And overall his health seems better.
There’s not much we can do with the trachea. I give him small measured doses of hydrocodone cough syrup that the other vet prescribed when he coughs too much. About all you can do, they tell me.
But we can work on his back legs, which were deteriorating rapidly.
The vet said his neck seemed much less tense today after they did that laser treatment last week. She said if he’s still doing better next week we will taper off the acupuncture a bit and focus on his back/leg strength training.
That would save me about $70 per week not to have the acupuncture. She said if we can stretch it to two weeks I can save a bit of money.
Of course when it comes to your pets, you’ll do most anything. Pay anything. To take care of them. That’s just what we do.
Ivy managed to dig a bit of dirt out of one of my plant pots, I saw this morning. Not much. I moved it farther away and it’s pretty high up already.
However Ivy is about two feet long not counting her tail, so she can stretch herself out quite a bit, the little silly.
She doesn’t seem interested in eating the plant leaves. She just wants to dig in the dirt and pull the leaves off and leave it for me to clean up. The plants that are within her range at all are not toxic.
I started stringing beads on some yarn yesterday. Boy, Ivy was all over that! She would pull at my yarn and dig in my craft box I had next to me. Once she dug something out while I wasn’t looking and dragged it off.
But surprisingly after I saw it in the bath tub, she decided to bring it back and put it back in my craft box!
Who knows what goes through this cat’s brain?
Last night I finished watching “Collateral.” There are so many wonderful shows and movies on Netflix. I feel that I’m more than getting my money’s worth at $8.95 a month. I didn’t care for anything on the cable network anyway.
I also finished the book I was reading and will be starting something new.
