Due to the matter of logistics, it was decided to take Portia for her dental procedure this week, rather than at some more distant date. My calico guest will be going to the veterinarian once more tomorrow, Monday. I will be on holidays still for another week, thus facilitating her delivery to the hospital, and her collection later in the day, and I will be able to watch her most of my waking hours over the following days, in case of any adverse reaction.
Portia won’t be happy with me, but this appointment will obviate the need for her to go in later, unless something unforeseen comes up. She has to fast tonight – never fun for a cat, who has no idea why she is being starved – but she will be isolated in the library until departure time, making the evening easier on all concerned.
She is in good health, other than her teeth; a senior blood panel will be performed on her, just in case. I expect no problems. Come tomorrow afternoon, then, her second visit to the hospital will be a bad, and mildly sore, memory to her, and she can relax and recover.
