Don’t expect a lot of posts about cats, dogs and children in this space. But just now, coinciding with my starting up this blog, I have a worry about one of my cats, Charlotte. When we noticed her losing weight we took her to the vet and she has been diagnosed with a hyperthyroid condition.
Sunday she goes to a specialty clinic for radioactive iodine injection. Then she stays there for a week, glowing in the dark and creating clumps of cat pee, in a lead-lined box, which (the lumps, not the box) will no doubt later be used to power submarines. Or something.
When she comes home in a week or so, she’ll go into limited isolation and we will only be allowed to pet her for 15 minutes at a time, 3 or 4 times a day.
More on this later as it seems appropriate.
