Re: Free Rants

That's unfortunate. I can only how frustrating that must feel.

Re: Free Rants

Just remembered something I wanted to let off steam about...
A bit cross with work today.
We all got told which classes we will be with in school next year.
Now I am really happy, because I am getting just what I wanted: I am staying with the Nurture group...we take small groups of kids who need a bit of extra attention.
But it's for one of the teachers, I am really upset.
She's one I consider a pal.
She has an awful history of chronic depression.
This is her first week back working full time, after a lead in process, following several months off sick...I know for a fact she was very affected by my husband's suicide.
But it is a very difficult class she has and they were certainly a large factor in her going off sick.
So guess what?
They have given her the same class next year.
And this isn't because she asked for them, she told me that she had said she would be happy with any class but!

Re: Free Rants

This isn't really a rant, but I guess I am kind of frustrated by the current situation. It also makes me a little sad. We took my cat to the vet on Friday and she has an infection, so we had to give her antibiotics. We've had trouble giving her pills in the past, and until we get the results of the test they did on her we couldn't give her the antibiotic that comes in injection form (which has worked for her in the past). So we took the liquid medication option. It's been difficult giving it to her, but we thought she was getting some of the dosage for the past couple of days.
This morning things went really badly. It took us a few tries to get her the medicine and she was really upset with us, squirming and making a lot of very unhappy noises. We're not sure she even swallowed any of the medicine in the end. My mum thinks the cat is especially mad at her because she looks away when she smells her and doesn't purr when my mum pets her. She hasn't really been purring when I've pet her since then either. We're a little afraid we hurt her in some way. She's just wanted to sleep most of the day. But basically we're a little worried she won't trust us anymore. I'm still a little hopeful that she will feel better later, but I'm not sure. 
I've been reading about how other people give cats liquid medicine, but I don't know if those tips will work. She's never liked being held, but I don't know how to give her the medicine without holding her, or else we'd have to put her on a table, and even then I don't know how it would work. 
We've put her through enough distress already and I'm worried about putting her through more trauma.

Re: Free Rants

Update: the vet called saying she can have an injected antibiotic for her infect, so we don't have to wrestle with her anymore.

Re: Free Rants

This is good news. All our cats hated medicine, no chance of giving them something orally. I hope your cat gets well soon.
