No shows for two weeks

Monday, April 19th, 2010

I took the cat back to the vet last Friday (recording day), and the news was not good. Her breathing was shallow & laboured and she’d not put on any weight (despite double-dinners for two weeks). I persuaded the vet to give her another antibiotic shot and see her in another two weeks, despite him suspecting tumours on her lungs as the reason behind the coughing / breathing difficulties / sudden weight-loss. After that, I just wasn’t in the mood to do a podcast.

Sadly, she worsened over the weekend so I had to make the decision and took her in today to let her go. It wasn’t fair to let her suffer any longer.

October was almost 19, so she’d had a long and happy life & she’ll be greatly missed by Jasna and me.

Because of how I’m feeling at the moment, I don’t think I’ll be recording a show this coming week either.

See you all when I return.
