Yesterday was quite a day at the Townhouse. You know me, ordinarily I'd LEAP at a chance to poke fun at Waffles. I mean, it IS sort of my job and all.
But I have to cut the orange guy a little slack. And Glogirly too. Yesterday, Glogirly was getting ready to go to a wedding. She was in the bathroom, attending to her toenails with polish remover. She didn't even notice that Waffles was right underneath her stool. All of a sudden a tiny drip of polish remover fell from the cotton ball right smack into Waff's eye.
She wanted to freak. But she grabbed him and raced for the kitchen where Gloman was brewing up his coffee.
She wrapped Waffles up in a blanket with just his head peeking out and held him tight while Gloman flushed his eye with water. Although Waffles squirmed like worm on crack, he never cried and eventually let Gloman hold his eye open while he gently poured water over it.
Then came the tears. Glogirly's. She called up the vet and told them she was on her way.
Waffles is doing just fine and thankfully there's no damage to his eye. Glogirly just needs to keep it moist for a couple of days with a little bit of gel they gave her. The vet said that Glogirly & Gloman's fast actions saved him from what could have been a serious abscess. In fact, had they not flushed his eye, he'd would have likely already developed an abscess by the time they got to the vet. And that was in less than 60 minutes.
Don't tell, but when Waffles came home I walked right up to him and we calmly touched noses. I looked at his eye real close and then we just sat there for a couple of minutes. Of course there's no photographic evidence of this exchange, Glogirly just stood there watching us. Shock and awe, friends. Shock and awe.
Needless to say, we BOTH scored some treats after this episode.
Pee Ess - Glogirly missed the wedding but did make it to the reception...though she left before the cake. Waff and I are pretty impressed that she gave up cake so she could come home early.
