I had to laugh when I heard myself saying, "I have to leave work on time today because my cat has an appointment for acupuncture."
That seems like such a Homer thing to say.
Our little community is rife with New Age whimsy but I have complete confidence in our vet and if she wants to try acupuncture as an adjunct treatment for Cissy's mouth infection, I am willing to go along for the ride.
Believe it or not, our little girl was purring the whole time the pins were in her. It is still early in the course of treatments but Cissy is holding her own without antibiotics now.
