Thanks a Tonne

I made this card for our vet and the nurses after our cat, Kitty was injured a while back. She got in a fight and was scratched in the eye and needed a special drop in it HOURLY! All day, all waking hours, for two and a half weeks!

Luckily for us, we didn't have to do it if we slept through but if we woke up during the night we had to go catch her. The nurses had such a tough job, anytime they went near Kitty, she would growl or attack them. She bit Matt so badly he had to go to the doctor to make sure it wouldn't get infected. She wasn't too bad after that initial vet visit after Matt had to shake her off is hand to get her to let go but that was only for us that she was nice. She HATED the vet nurses to the point where every day when we picked her up we had to go out the back and put her in her cage for them. I can't really blame her, imaging being bashed up and trying to rest a sore body and having someone come and wake you up every hour and put a freezing cold drop in your eye for two and a half weeks! Just a day of that would wear me thin!

Her eye is all better now, her sight was only compromised just a little and you can see a cloudy patch on it but at the beginning half of her cornea had collapsed and they were worried she would lose the eye.

She was sick the other day and we took her to a new vet because we were worried they would scream and run out of the surgery when they saw us coming (they know her as 'The Kitty' now). She had to stay overnight for tests and the next day they called me to say she could come home, she needed some medicine but they weren't going to give it to her until we arrived because "she has turned into a lion.... and we can't catch her"! Oh, the joy of being a vet!

Oh...poor Kitty!!! I had a cat once who wasn't nice. I actually thought she was possessed! Once minute she was a beautiful playful cat, the next moment, she would hiss and slap you! I took her to the vet once...when they gave her back to me, the nurse said "here is your evil cat"!! Then I had a roommate try to help me give her a pill once, she actually said "no"!! Scared the you-know-what out of my roommate!! She died...don't know what happened to her, but I found her in the back yard! Very strange cat! Anyway, I love this card!!
