Woke up this morning to the sound of Dancer cat throwing up! Apparently, he ate some of the asparagus fern in my roses flower arrangement that I had placed on the mantel. He had climbed onto the mantel and pulled one frond out of the vase. I hadn't realized that asparagus fern is toxic to cats! He threw up a few times and was rather subdued all day, but seems OK now. He has stopped throwing up, ate a little dry food, drank a little water and used his litter box. He's sitting on the floor next to my chair, as I write this.
I spent the morning tending to the cat and then, picked up a friend of mine who came to lunch. We had originally planned to get together for lunch on Mother's Day, but decided to postpone it because I hadn't felt well enough. We spent a little time, after lunch, video chatting with my daughter. Later, after tea, we did a little shopping. I bought two hanging planters, some rubber gloves, air fresheners, wax paper, two packs of coffee filters for daughter, a pack of four individual apple sauce cups ($1) and a bottle of soda ($1.09 with deposit). Then, I dropped my friend off at her home and came back.
Later, I collected my cat carrier from a cousin who had borrowed it; just in case I needed to take Dancer to the vet (but he seems OK now, and I probably won't need to take him in, after all). Then, did a load of laundry. It's hanging up to dry overnight.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The cat seems to have recovered from eating the fern.
- A pleasant afternoon visiting with my friend.
- Managing to keep the house tidy during the week.
- Pleasant weather (not too hot, not too cold).
- A fun shopping trip.
The weekend has come to an end and it felt like a very short weekend. It's back to work, tomorrow.
How was your weekend? Hope you enjoyed a relaxed weekend.
Poor kitty :-( I'm sure he'll be fine.ReplyDelete
Jess, yes, he's OK and back to normal, now. He loves eating greens (spinach, broccoli and cauliflower leaves, lettuce, etc.), so I have to be very careful what I put in vases. This was the first time I used asparagus fern and believe me, it will be the last!Delete
