Re: [feline-heart] For Krista Re: Bailey is gone
- Good point. When Pretty Girl was at the vet's on Friday for the diarreah
(and weakness) she made a fool of me when the vet put some tumi-k on the
roof of her mouth and she had plenty of energy then to turn her nose up at
him, then turn her back on him and walk into her carrier. We both laughed.
I thought she would be ok. Within two and a half hours I was rushing her to
er. Do not second guess what you did.
