I bathed chance when I got home...he had been rolling around in poop again. it was a nice bath...I filled it up to his shoulders, held him steady and let him just soak in a nice deep warm tub..bet that felt good right down deep to his bones. he is currently on the karunda bed on a thick blanket in front of the fire while he finishes drying off so he doesn't get chilled. he is rolling a bit and chatting at me a bit, looking around and interested.
so I am thinking..this is as good as it gets for my little Mongolian monster friend. there is not much more that we can do to give him some comfort and joy in this world. his spine is twisting, his immobility is increasing..he is a powerless victim fully dependent on us for every single positive or negative moment of his current life.
I get it....it is not really fair....time to do something about chance.
squirt is home from the vet...he went yesterday for his shave down and checkup, and came home today minus 20 of his teeth.
that's a pretty brutal dental, but he needed it and better to get all of the utter terror for him done in one single shot instead of drawing it out by making him come home and then go back in. he will feel much better in a couple of days. poor little boy...it was so hard for him not to be in his kitchen with people he trusts but he is once again safe at home.
well...chance has gone back to bed and is contentedly sleeping now. I will call the vets in the morning to book an appointment on my next day off. until then I promise warm, deep soaks in a tub and lounging in front of the fire every night as soon as I get home.
