Morning all - welcome to a very damp Wednesday! We are waiting for a tree surgeon to arrive to sort out out pot plant. Yes, I did say pot plant. Well, that is what is started life as. Now it's a 20 foot monster and needs some attention so Tom is coming over to reduce it in size and, hopefully, it will be good for another five or so years. It's not going to be much fun for him out there in this cold and damp.
My mobile has rung twice this morning, and twice I have nearly jumped out of my skin. Unfortunately neither call was from the vet so we are still waiting waiting waiting. (result are in - see below)
And I am blaming the waiting for me being distracted when I made this card. It wasn't until I put it together that I realised I had missed something out. Oh well.
The image is a Penny Black/Mo Manning stamp called In The Manger
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are Forever Friends
Madeira corner die from Memory Box
Sentiment from Hero Arts (I think)
I had meant to put a thin gold border around the image panel but fluff-for-brains managed to miss that out entirely.
Hugs, Squirrel xx
12,15pm I have just put down the phone to the vet. It's still a bit of a puzzle as the blood tests were inconclusive, although the lab parameters for kidney function show a slight elevation in enzymes, but nothing that the vet is concerned about as the surgery parameters are wider for the same test and if they had done it he would have come back as normal. Apparently the lab parameters are much tighter.
His thyroid function is absolutely fine so this seems to narrow things down towards his teeth, but of course they need to rule out anything else before they will think about knocking him out for a full dental. They may well do a tummy scan while he is out cold just to be on the safe side.
He is really eating so little, it breaks my heart - this is a cat who lives for food. And he is turning his nose up now at best quality organic free range chicken and poached cod fillets!
Next task is to collect a wee sample .... this could be entertaining. Off to vet to collect a kit. I'll keep you posted!
