Last week I stayed close to home (except for two trips to the store) to take care of my ... cat ... Elizabeth. We raised Elizabeth from a kitten and for eight years she would stay close to us when anyone in the family was sick. We let her out one night and she came back with her back legs hurt. I won't describe any more ... just to state that after a week of carrying her food to her and $220 veterinary services, she is doing well.
She didn't cry once! But boy did she ever growl!
Things are slowly getting back to normal!
