One of the "perks" of being an unofficial cat rescue is that people seem to drop their injured animals off a lot, or the general public lets me know where injured cats ARE and I get to go play rescue. I never COULD leave one alone if I know it's in trouble somewhere, no matter what. Too compassionate toward the little beasties for my own good? Probably am.
At any rate, today was one of those riding out to play Cat Rescue games. As a result of what went down, I'm voice posting this from the E.R where I'm being given antibiodics and some pain meds through an IV. I get to go home after since they think they caught it, but I also get to take augmentin with me, and given that the bite's on my right finger, something tells me that I'm calling out tomorrow.
This is when you really, really start to think about getting a partner or at least assistant with reasonable clinical qualifications to free me up while this is going on. It won't help for tomorrow and very probably my Wednesday-Thursday surgery days (wait damn it IS Wednesday now, isn't it? I don't know, the drugs are good), and I've already made plans involving The View, Dr. Phil and the soaps in my DVR queue, but IS there anyone on this who knows another vet, perhaps a student who could assist with exams if this comes up again?
And how many sympathy kisses do all of you think I can solicit if I take my story to the pub?
