Happiness is - waking up to the wet kisses our Sweeto Bandito! Yes! Our Sweet Baboo came home last night! Of course he needs much careful monitoring, but he seems more alert and, dare I say, healthy. When not up and about and kissing us, he does look sort of "out of it" - but then again, he is a senior fellow, and has been through a lot these past few days. Cat Wrangler was thrilled to report, that his morning routine with Bandito was resumed after many weeks of absence: into the bathroom, and rolly-polly's on the tile floor, whilst getting many belly rubs. A sure sign of improvement. The blood test, I am happy to report, revealed no deadly disease, so, it is the diabetes that needs to be watched. But you see, we are English in a French province. Our regular vet is on holiday and knows a fair bit of English, alas, his colleague speaks almost none - luckily Cat Wrangler knows the language far better than I. But still - we always fear that something has been "lost in translation", so to speak. As I always say, ask several times just to make sure we got it right.
A big, BIG thank you to all you wonderful bloggers that sent so many "good vibrations" our way - so many warm and hopeful thoughts that I think some snow actually melted :) We all slept well last night.
