Ralph went In for his eye maintenance today. I took him to school again until the vet opened, and I just have to say that he is the best cat ever. The kids were mauling him with love and he just took it in stride. (Go to facebook.com/stjohncdc for a couple of photos.)
I zipped him to the vet right at 8:30, and since the preschoolers are talking about pets, I snapped a couple of photos with the iPad to share with the children. They loved it!
When I picked him up at 4:30, they said that it took him a long time to wake up from the anesthesia, so I should watch him at home. He would probably be quite lethargic, and when he was ready to eat, I should just start with a little.
Well, he again crashed around like a drunkard. He kept trying to jump up on the counter, and I didn’t have the heart to yell at him, since he fell in a crumple every time he jumped down. He walked listing to one side, and knocked over the humidifier in the living room, soaking the rug. I just followed him around, cleaning up his messes and showering him with pity.
As I write this, he has finally crashed beside me on the sofa, his back soaked with water from when I squirted him for being on the counter again. (He didn’t even flinch when i did it. He just lay there and took it, clinging to the recently-moved humidifier like it was a prize bottle of rum.)
Lethargic at last.
