Car Boots & Kitty Cats
Last night however, Ali, pictured above, started retching and coughing. Nearly an hour later she was still at it and looking quite distressed. We duly called the duty vet who said she may have something stuck, probably a blade of grass, at the back of the throat/nasal cavity. We put her in the cat basket and she was worryingly co-operative. 'She must be poorly' said Lovely Man.
So at 10.30 pm, in my truly fetching pink velor pj's, we set off to the vet's surgery. Ali wailed inconsolably ALL the way there! Her cries were odd, like she was mewing under water. Once at said vet she retched violently and deposited one long blade of grass on the floor. That done she decided she felt much better thank you and perked up. Lovely Man hung his head and apologized several times for getting the vet out of bed or wherever he was.
After lunch we went to pay the bill. Lets just say I could have flown half way to Canada on it!
