little roo has been acting funny.
she wasnt sleeping in her bed anymore.
and she was walking around listless and sad.
i couldnt figure out what it was.
i moved her bed.
i washed it.
so i held her on my lap
and asked her heart
what was wrong?
i went to check her teeth.
she had pink gums before
and im supposed to be
brushing them every day
but i havent because we were
on tour and gone for a month.
what i found shocked and terrified me.
she had a black spring about the size of a
pencil top eraser STUCK IN HER TOOTH!
she must have been playing with it
and it got stuck in her mouth.. :(
it had been there for a long time!
her gums were starting to grow around it!!!!!!!!
it was all mucked up and terrible!!!!!!
i took a deep breath.. because i was shaking
and called the vet.. and got in my car
(which i hate to drive because im not used to
driving on the wrong side of the road yet)
and sped to the dr. as fast as i could.
he took it out and she didnt fuss one bit.
i felt horrible for not noticing it before!!!
the minute it was out
her eyes brightened up
and she felt loads better.
poor poor roo!
he gave us a plug-in for the house
that emits pheromones into the air
that are supposed to simulate a mother cat.
they calm stress and elevate cat happiness.
i plugged it in when we got home and ill
be damned if all of us didnt just start to
purrrrr and roll over to take naps!
i know its not supposed to work on humans
but i must have some cat blood in me
cause ive never felt better in my whole life.
my fairy bag came and
it lives up to the dream!
