God bless ya. I woke up and carried Simon to the vet today. It was all I could do not to cry when he was wimpering in his little carry cage thing. That broke my heart. I couldn't imagine having a child and hearing them cry out of pain.
But on a lighter note.....when I walked in there with him, both of the receptionist chicks went..."MY GOD THAT CAT IS HUGE!!". I said..."what do you expect when you're a cat and ya eat chicken breasts, salmon, and shrimp?".
