My cat is having surgery today. You non-animal lovers are probably confused and/or laughing at me, but I’m really worried about him. It’s just minor surgery, but surgery is surgery is surgery and it still involves some level of risk.
Thankfully, my boss is understanding about the situation. I have to drop the cat off this morning and can pick him up before 6:30, but the vet recommends that if you can, to pick up your pet as soon as they’re ready to go home, because the fear can make the healing process a bit more tough. If he goes home immediately, he will be happier. And I will be happier because I will know he’s okay and be able to watch him and sit with him. So my boss is letting me do some combination of telework and leave to cover the day. Considering that I’m out for 10 days over the next month for various training sessions, she’s being very generous.
So, pet lover or not, send your kind thoughts to my furry black friend today.
