In the Sick Bay

Wounded eye of the tiger. Lately, Mr. Bowie has had bad luck, health-wise. I took Mr. Bowie last week two times to Venhei, a Veterinary Hospital. An injury of his lower eyelid got infected and Mr. Bowie became very, very sick. The vet disinfected the wound and Mr. Bowie received acute treatment and proper medication. I need to put a thin line of ointment in his eye, 3 times a day. Thank goodness he is feeling much better right now. Get well soon, my furry friend! Don’t worry, I will look after your catnip plants…

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.
