I just got HRH back from the vet. She is still sedated, and sleeping peacefully. She has a urinary tract infection. The veterinarian gave her some fluids, an antibiotic injection, and some medicine for her to take for seven days. I was told she should be feeling much better in about two or three days. I will have to take her back next week for a check up. In all, my poor sick girl will cost me about $200, but for the love and companionship I have received from her over the last 15 years (and hopefully, many years to come), it is absolutely worth it.
The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself. Of course he wants care and shelter. You don’t buy love for nothing.

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's.

Oh Joe, I’m so happy that she will recover. UTIs aren’t all that serious, thank goodness. I’m sure this is like a late Christmas present for you.

Yes, it is Jay. I am so happy that she will be on the mend soon. Thanks for your concern. I hope that you have had a good holiday.
