Happier note! Bina had surgery for the tumor on her head. Robust Bina came through like a champ, of course, and now I can remove the smaller ones with the Neoplasene (bloodroot-derived salve) the big one on her head had to be done surgically, as she immediately removed the salve from that one, even with the dread e-collar. Now fighting with the insurance company...first denied claim as said 'no name on invoice'...I asked them to please look again... then they added a deductible...she's been treated for this condition for what, ten years?? After this is finished, I'm canceling the policy...take that, Pets Best Insurance...I do hope they're not all that bad, but it is the nature of the beast!
Happiest News!! Friend Susan's cat was shot by a loony neighbor...pellet gun? (The family is trying to keep her in check) and could not use his back legs nor his bladder...HE IS NOW ALMOST COMPLETELY HEALED! Has only a slight limp! He's young, and we are so thrilled, as can be imagined!!! BoBo, grey and white boy...Susan had stepped right up and learned how to express his bladder. After just a few days, she noticed that it was not full!! His spine was not damaged, just the tissue around, and some nerves. How wonderful to see him running around the yard again!!
Guess what?? I now have four regular customers for my food (Plus broth & bones)! Not a big money maker, but every bit counts. Have had some wonderful donations, too, and a Tiffany lamp base I'd had for years just sold at auction for a bundle! That check goes to Bee Holistic!
