I AM one of THOSE people that gush about my pet and bore you with the 200+ pics I have on my phone. When did this happen to me? I used to scoff at THOSE people!
Rocket has been my best friend, baby and companion for 6+ years. I have NO idea how I managed without the love of this creature in my life before he came along. HE is the reason I got out of bed during my darkest days. He is always there, excited to see me and filled with love.
He got Very Sick a couple of days ago. Sicker than I’ve ever seen him. He was losing fluids at both ends and the danger of dehydration was a real threat. I called 5 different vets offices to see if I could get someone to look at him, before I found someone with an opening. I had to sit in the waiting room for a couple of hours until they could work me in.
Rocket and I are both back home. Him, dozing on the couch next to me. I’ve got 2 different medications and some special food for him. The picky eater that he is actually ate some of the food and he’s drinking water. Both are improvements. So I’m encouraged.
I think he’s going to be ok. But a time like this really does make you think about what a HUGE part of your life these Furbabies are. He IS family.
