Just a week ago Tara the cat appeared to be a death's door. Now I am £900 worse off but she seems fit as a fiddle.
She semed delighted to see me on Friday morning when I picked her up from the vets, though I was still reeling at the bill. She has a big bald patch on her tummy from the scan and is now on medication six times a day. But that ends in a day or so. She does not appear treatment and has bitten and scratched her impoverished owner several times as I have given her drugs to drink or pills to swallow.
But she is now eating normally, in fact for the first time in ages she is not demanding food at all times but just eats three times a day. She is not vomitng and last night she again supplemented her diet with a moth she caught in our bedroom. So all is well.
Meanwhile my membership of the Labour party appears to have been approved and so enthusiastically I suggest another policy initiative for our future leader, the man who wishes to reopen all the coal mines but not produce any coal as it is environmentally unfriendly, comrade Jeremy Corbyn.
Comrade: when you have finished renationalising the railways might you also nationalise all vets. They are simply a way of extracting vast amounts of cash from the proletariat to benefit the bourgeois, Vets simply live of the sweat of the working man and woman and it is time to end this exploitation. Vets may not be he commanding heights of the economy but they should be in public hands.
