THE CAT AGAIN :( : will her beautiful eye heal ?
Just when I thought that June has stopped being a curse as it was officially over last night, something terrible happened. Just as I was taking a deep breath after burying three members of my family, and after the cat was saved , something tragic happened . At 11.55 pm exactly the I heard a chilling scream and ran to the garden to find the cat locked into a fight with a stray, I managed to separate them but the damage was done :( .. My baby has a double eye injury and this time blood is coming out . There are no vets at midnight here, I called the one I knew but he said he was far and could not come over - well why would he it is midnight anyway. Adib in Tunis must hate me by now and is probably considering changing his cell phone number. What I needed were words of comfort and re-assurance, so thank you Adib for your patience again. I cannot diagnose the problem myself regardless of my great love for animals . We need to make a website which has all the vet clinics in Tripoli for such an emergency. Someone has to be availabe 24h/7. People care about their pets not just cows and camels. I am so angry and frustrated but mostly of my impotence. Any Libyan vets out there please ?
I have to thank my best friend for staying up with me and who is reading this right now. You made it possible for me to calm down and feel better.
PS I'm still replying to this thread about Haditha , I never had that much comments on the blog thanks.... It has turned into a lot of interesting discussions but I just needed to vent a little bit my frustration and sadness about the cat.
PPS those are her real eyes by the way.
