Update: Cosmo

Standard

Apparently Cosmo has an abcess in his leg. He is running a bit of a fever so he’s being sent home with antibiotics. She shaved his leg to look at it but didn’t see anything that needed to be lanced so I guess what we do is just give him the meds and wait for it to go away.
I’m relieved but still extremely cautious. I have had more pets than I care to mention go completely downhill after I’d been convinced by the vet that everything was going to be fine. (Not this specific vet, though.) I don’t think I’ll be able to relax completely until the lump on his leg goes away and he’s back to acting like his old self.

About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. I’ve never met Cosmo personally, but I can tell you I like him better than about 87% of the people I am in contact with on a regular daily basis. I hope the kitty recovers and feels better soon.
    P.S. no P.S.
