part two

what I really did all day was spend hours at the spca while they took xrays of jackson's chest to make an educated guess as to what is making him cough and it doesn't seem to be his heart so that is good. chances are he has some sort of respiratory infection and/or asthma and so I'm to give him antibiotics and theophylline, of which any older asthmatics among you probably recognize the name. it's a bronchodilator, for those out of the know. I'm supposed to give it to him at night for reasons I'm not certain of.

santiago has been hissing at poor jackson all evening as I guess he must really smell different after his long walk to the vet and back. I keep trying to get him to really take a good sniff of the guy but he won't get close enough yet. jackson is actually fairly unconcerned with the snit--it's santiago who is all whacked out.

silly cats. vision doesn't count for much with them as far as recognition goes. I hope they get things straightened out by bedtime so we can all sleep together peacefully.

I walked with jackson to the spca as it is about a mile away. I rigged up the plastic carrier to accept my briefcase strap so most of his weight was on my shoulders and back rather than just hanging off the end of my arm. it turns out that at 11lbs he weighs less than do my laptop and books and papers on an average work day. the walk was strangely pleasant as he was very quiet and not at all heavy.

now then I am going to sit and then I will go to bed. I must get up early and start grading papers as soon as I can so that I can then quit early in the day and work on those things more dear to my heart like my website for instance.
