This is the Human Slave.
I dashed to the vet after work and went to visit Baby. In his 'cell', with a bandaged arm attached to a drip, he cut quite the pathetic figure! He saw me, stared at me with his big blue eyes and then HISSSSSSED pure venom at me! I was devastated!
I opened the door and luckily he soon returned to his usual affectionate self - the vet said that he has been extremely vocal and has voiced his displeasure exceptionally well! Apparently he had diarrhea all night last night but today has settled down and is recovering nicely.
The vet says she thinks it was a really bad case of feline food poisoning - at this point I felt obliged to explain about Baby Mao's night time trips to next door's rubbish bins and how he regularly returns with KFC, naan bread, curried chicken etc etc - a skill taught to him by Yao-Lin!
The vet chuckled and agreed that this was the most likely cause of his illness. Whatever he ate, it made him very ill but thankfully he is on the mend now.
I can pick him up tomorrow evening after work but he has to stay indoors for three days.
I'll be off to the shops tomorrow to buy some lamb chops and steak for a special welcome home dinner for him. I miss my baby!
Thank you SO MUCH for your positive purrs! I really do believe in the power of positive purring - I've seen it work wonders across the cat blogosphere and I can't thank you enough for your loving comments!
I'll be sure to get Baby Mao to blog as soon as he is home, I imagine he will have quite a tail to tell!
Many thanks and much love to all
