was on chemo). Or when I would leave him for the day for testing. As a
matter of fact, if I had ever had to board another cat, I would purposly
bring Frisky as he was so good there, and ask that they be caged together.
But when he was in for IV treatment a couple weeks ago it was a disaster.
He was miserable, and I was going to see him every day too. By day 4 he was
growling at me! The vet said he went nuts when they put the bandage around
the IV (this is my good calm cat who they would give chemo injections
practically hands-off). I'm hoping he was just furious with the catheter
and not the boarding per se. I will see what his numbers are next week and
keep an eye on his attitude before deciding whether to go or not. Even if I
do go, I can come home if he is miserable. If nothing else, I will have had
a nice drive and a night away. Sigh.....
