My feelings on this in PowerPoint format:
- WORRIED (very worried) about Beowulf, though he hasn't seemed lethargic or acted sick
- ANGRY at Bideawee, the place we adopted from b/c we took them to their clinic on Tuesday and they said it wasn't serious and gave us meds that didn't do the job
- CONCERNED about the price of the vet bill should x-rays and other expensive treatments be needed
- IMPRESSED with the quality of care at the private vet we took them to. The place is a little grungy but the people were really nice and spent a lot of time with us. They also said they use the best quality vaccines so we'll be going to them again for the boys' vaccinations.
Most of all, I'm just worried about my boys and want them to get well and stay healthy. Even if I had known that they were sick when I adopted them (the shelter didn't tell us about the colds), I still would have gotten them, b/c after all the searching and all the doubt, I know we made the right decision. They are definitely "our cats."
I just hope we have the 15 to 20 years with them that I described in this post.
