I’m not that good, but I’m not that bad

I had a long weekend, starting on Thursday night with an emergency trip to the vet for Chloe cat. Long story short, she got in a fight with some bigger animal and her wounds became infected and turned into abscesses. The wounds are on her lower back so her little butt is shaved and she’s on antibiotics. She’s already looking better, but I felt horrible about not checking her earlier for cuts other than the small one I saw on her foot initially. I always assumed if she was in a fight, she’d look like it, but no. So warning to all the pet owners/lovers out there: if your pet has a little scratch from being outside, give yourself the peace of mind of checking them all over for cuts. Hopefully you can avoid the guilt and vet bills I’m dealing with!

On to more fashionable things. I wore this about two weeks ago for my friend’s bridal shower. Her wedding is coming up in just two short weeks and I’m looking forward to wearing a pretty bridesmaid dress, drinking with some Irish folks, and bowling after the wedding! I got this dress on clearance at Madewell and was saving it for a hot date. Sadly, none of those have come my way, but the ladies at the shower appreciated it!

    Wow you look stunning! I love this dress and the shoes are so cute. I’m sorry for Chloe cat’s scuffle and vet needs. You are a good pet mama so try not to feel too much guilt.

    I had a similar experience with my cat growing up. He was gnawing on something he undoubtedly caught and killed out there on the Boston streets and got a bone stuck in his teeth, and it also caused a very painful absess in his mouth which we found out about when we took him in, almost a week after he started acting funny. Po thing. We definitely wished we had brought him in earlier! Like you, we learned a good lesson though.
    Oh… and your shoes make me weak.

    I can’t believe the steal you got with that dress – and how amazing it looks on you. It is perfect for a date, or a shower, which means it’s versatile. I am so glad you picked it up!
