#MicroblogMondays 42: My Fur Baby
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.
Truman got a cold. I was sitting down to a very stressful plate of work when I heard him sneeze several times. I turned around and snot was coming out of his nose. He politely wiped it away with his paw.
I decided to clean his cage before I started working. Midway through cleaning the cage, he started wheezing. He wasn’t wheezing so hard that he couldn’t go after a cookie I hid at the top of the stairs in his playpen. But wheezing nonetheless.
I called the vet feeling a little foolish because… you know… it was a cold, right? But the vet told me to bring him in. When I got in there, I started sobbing because I was so scared that it was going to be like Cozy. Out of context, I’m sure I looked like a lunatic, crying over the fact that my guinea pig was sneezing. But… what if?
I went home with medication for his upper respiratory infection. He’s totally himself personalitywise, just with a runny nose.
I said it with Cozy and I’ll say it again: “It doesn’t matter how small you are; you can still be deeply loved.”
Do you have a pet you fret over and love intensely?
