So, Friday we took our Boris to the V.E.T, as he's been a little odd,and his tummy seems to be swollen and quite firm to touch, plus he hasn't been eating much. He had been very bright eyed, shiny and quite chipper though.
Bad news: he has renal failure. One kidney is stuffed. The vet, Margaret is such a lovely lady. We've been going there for 18 years,first with Esmeralda, out previous cat, and Boris has been going there for the 5 years that we've had him. She gave him a shot that should have sparked him up a bit in 48 hours,but he hasn't improved, so I spent most of last night crying. I'm scared to ring the vet, but will have to soon......she said we might get a couple of years...or not. I'm guessing we won't.
I'm ridiculously in love with my Boris.
We had a gig Friday night, which went really well.
We roped our mate Jeff in to take a couple of posy band pix:
I'm wearing a vintage frock I bought off Trade Me.
Remind me not to stand next to tiny Nix in future!!
I'm not that big, but I look huge next to her!
I spent some time trying to get pix of a guy who was doing great mungo dancing, but I just couldn't capture he spectacular moves.
Saturday we drove up to Kaikoura to spend the night with our friends Dave & Jana.
It was very relaxing and they are great company.
We drank a lot of red wine, admired their 5 month old baby daughter and I played silly buggers with a headlight.......
