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.
Sending POTP to Portia for her dental to go well, without complications.ReplyDelete
Hopefully, she won't be feeling
to 'down' in the mouth..!
I guess the good thing about the quick dental appointment is you haveReplyDelete
the rest of your vacation time this week. It'll help you concentrate on Portia's recovery instead of work. We have our paws and fingers crossed that she does well and has nothing serious found or done.
Good luck miss P.ReplyDelete
My thoughts will be with her today and hope all goes well. Glad to hear she's in good health for a senior!ReplyDelete
Awww, lots of purrs to Portia that all goes well and that she recovers quickly. She might forgive you more quickly if you bribe her with her favourite food or treats after the fact. :-)ReplyDelete
I intend to.Delete
Dental work is never fun for anyone, but I trust it will all go smoothly.ReplyDelete

Purrs and prayer to that sweetie gal from all of us too.ReplyDelete
I'm sure Portia's dental work will go smoothly, and that she'll feel so much better once it's completed. Good luck, Portia!!ReplyDelete
She'll be at the vet, and perhaps even ready to come home by the time I post this. Fingers crossed all goes well and she is home and telling you off in short order. :)ReplyDelete
We think she will come through with flying colors. Our crew has more of a problem with getting to the vet in those despised carriers than the actual procedures. At our house after losing a few teeth they simply carry on as if nothing happenedReplyDelete
It made a difference in Katie.ReplyDelete
We humans suffer more than the cats who we are delivering to the vet!ReplyDelete
We can see the future; they live in the moment.
