living in today (and a little bit of yesterday)

the vet came to see edith today..i called them this morning because late yesterday afternoon, she fell in the pond. nicole heard the splash and went running and there was edith going under and struggling til she got the hang of swimming. nicole could not see any reason for her to have fallen in the pond, there were no other animals in sight. but i suspect edith is quite elderly and a bit confused so no telling why she fell in.
anyway..i was worried that if she sucked some water into her lungs, she could be in trouble in a couple of days. so the vet came out, checked her out and gave her a long acting antibiotic injection propholactically so she doesn't develop an aspiration pneumonia.
apparently edith was none too happy with the poking precaution.
just a quick update on the new guys in..angie, the 17 yr old cat is doing ok..but she does not want to come out of her intro. cage.
archie is a sweet hoot..he is no longer a nasty biting guy..he is a very nice 17 yr old dog.
felix will NOT eat any kind of dog food...and we have tried it all. he was forever fed on human food and he will have nothing to do with anything else. today he had chef boyardie and eggs. laura is going to cook up my special "i don't eat dog food" casserole and we will see if he eats it (cuz there is puppy food kibble hidden in it)
prudence is lovely..."dear prudence..la la la la da" (can't remember the words.) but she is a dear so if any of you know them, please post so i can sing them to her.
apollo is home..his blood sugars are back up in the high 20's. we are starting him at just once a week on the cushings med and will see if his blood sugars go down without him crapping out.
bobbie brown is doing ok post surgery..but he is still so very shy. it's sad to see a cat who views the world thru such frightened eyes...he has no confidence in himself.
ok..laura and i are going out for supper (cuz lana is somewhere in hippy beach, bon fire, music world) and i am going to fill her in on the world upside down changes that we are implementing here. it is repayment for helping me around here tonight.
