My apartment is the apartment of disease and sickness. I have something, possibly strep throat, Venus came down with an upper respiratory infection, and now Thena appears to have caught it, but in a bit of a worse manner — she’s been coughing and today she was pretty quiet and somewhat crackly. It was hard to tell if the crackly was her breathing or her purring, but I think if she seems the same tonight, I’m going to bring her in to the vet. I’ve already talked to them, and they have time, so it should be okay. I got paid yesterday, so I can afford to spend a bit of extra money on bringing her in if I do it, and I’d rather spend the money on her than on a new DVD or something.
