Teh Mommy here.
Well, it's been an absolute maelstrom of activity here; but it's not quite done yet. The painting is complete, the baseboard ordered (installation in about a month), the electrician is coming tomorrow to change out some outlets and switches. Oh, and speaking of electricity, we are officially on SOLAR POWER and off the grid! We still have to put up or pictures and decorations...that's Scott's metier and he'll do that over the weekend while I'm at work and unavailable to offer
unhelpful poor placement suggestions, LOL.
In sad news, our The Baby is one sick kitty, and spent four days at the vet. She's back home with antibiotics and milk thistle to take for the next three weeks and then a follow-up blood test. Her white blood cell count was astronomical and some of her liver enzymes were also off the chart. The vet suspects either a tumor(s) or possibly an abscess on her liver. We're going with conservative treatment for now, but exploratory surgery may be needed for a definitive diagnosis if she doesn't respond well. This latest excursion cost us nearly $900, so if the surgery happens we may be asking for donations--it will be in the neighborhood of $2000--and as much as I hate to ask I know all of you truly understand how madly we love this little white cat and want her well, if we can. Right now she's sacked out on the catio, and the first thing she wanted to do when she got home was go on patrol (a short one) outside.
So, in the next few week if you could keep Bibbles in your thoughts we'd appreciate it very, very much.
I'll have more photos to show of the house soon...and I PROMISE to contact those of you wanting a tour of the Catio at BlogPaws next week. Sheesh. Life is Busy.
