Best Laid Plans

Sometimes your day doesn’t go quite as you planned.

I knew I had to pick this guy up from the vet.

What I didn’t plan for, was letting the rascal out of his cage, and him immediately scratching at his wound.

“He’s been really good,” the nurse said.

Past experience should have forewarned me, but obviously, I hadn’t learned from my previous lesson.

A new appointment was booked and…

And of course, it was never in the plans that yesterday we would find him, huddled and shivering in the garden with a large wound on the back of his head. I thought he’d been in a fight with another cat, or maybe even a car, but it turns out it was an abscess.

He has been so miserable, banging into things, and trying to shake the bandage off. Hopefully he’ll get used to it quickly.

Tell me what you think!
