I spent this morning sorting out the rubbish from the recycling after last night’s Archaeological Group party. The Powerpoint presentation that I’d put together was well received, which was very gratifying! We had to take Bubbles to the vet because part of her fur has become discoloured in a patch about 1½ times the size of a 2p piece, and I didn’t know whether that was a sign of infection from some hidden bite or scratch or whether it might be more sinister, like skin cancer. As she is mostly white she is more at risk.
However, the vet assured us that it was just due to her age, and only to worry if it gets bigger or if she starts worrying at it and licking it a lot.
The consultation was £22, their tooth medicine was a tenner and their flea/tick etc. jollop was over £20 for the next 4 months (and that was buy two get one free), plus 8 quid VAT so it came to over £60! Still at least it set our minds at rest and they’re set up for some time now; the tooth medicine lasts a year between them.
Came home, had lunch and put our decorations up this afternoon, so am now recovering!
