They wish. I got home in plenty of time to help TBG take the boys in to see the vet. They both did well, although someone wet themselves - we won't name names. Patachou is doing okay so far. He's cleaning and pretending that it was no big deal. We will keep an eye on him, but the vet did due diligence, giving him a shot of cortisone and keeping him there for a half hour to make sure there were no immediate adverse reactions.
Talked to him about Bête Noir and he said it is not unusual for cats to have back-to-back-to-back heat cycles. We are hoping we can catch this one on Tuesday.
So far, so good.
