Lucky for us, someone had cancelled their 10:45 appointment. The clinic’s curbside service was excellent, by the way.
My assessment accurate, the conjunctivitis is mild and she suffered zero corneal damage. Whew!
In addition, following poor Tilly’s passing last September I kept her unexpired prescription feline eardrops. Intuition led me to dose Jezebel’s right ear last night, which was fortunate as the swelling ostensibly resulted as a byproduct from intense digging at her itchy ear. Jezzy’s doctor condoned administering tresaderm in both ears along with corticosteroid drops in her puffed eye.
On a comical note, I wrote a message from Jezebel’s imagined viewpoint regarding the whole thing. As well as providing additional information, I hoped to give beleaguered staffers a much needed giggle.
Hi, My name is Jezebel and I don't want to be here again, though it's been a while. I feel fine.
But Mom thinks my right eyelid looks puffy because my gray fur appears thin. I also have very itchy ears. Whatever...
I may be old but don't normally act like it. All my activities and habits are healthy. I use the litterbox, drink my water, even run around sometimes when I want attention.
My diet consists mainly of Sheba pate. Sorry, but I refuse to eat that Hill's prescription K/D kidney care, no matter what, despite enjoying it for a long time. Mom and Dad worry some, for sure. At least I have a healthy appetite!
Can I go home now?

Do you have any upcoming appointments? Are folks in your area adapting well to this new reality?
