Caturday: Can you blame Cosmo for looking crabby?

My patient, Cosmo, starts his day with four pills. One of the pills has a tendency to get stuck on the roof of his mouth. Then a half hour after that, I stick a needle in the scruff of his neck to deliver fluids.

He's not eating by himself yet, so I force feed him all day long. Down the hatch!

One more thing ... I have to keep him in the bathroom so that I can monitor his input and output. Poor thing. He does get visitors all day long ... 2-legged and 4-legged variety. I feel so sorry for him today that I think I'll let him roam about for a while. I feel satisfied that his elimination systems are working.

So, no wonder he's looking grouchy in the photo above ... just took moments ago.

On the bright side, he's got a little more energy ... wish he had more. And he's looking less jaundiced.

Maybe I'm projecting about the nasty stuff and the caretaker needs *her* spirits lifted?


Stumble It!
