It's just like having children, I swear.
On Thursday last week I took DJ to the vet to treat what seemed to be an infested cat-scratch on his nose. Upon examination, the vet warned me it could be, and more likely is a tumor. I'd noticed seeping from both eyes, and on further examination we found a bulge above the bridge of his nose. He was hospitalized for drainage and came home sporting a head cone and some antibiotics.
Sunday afternoon I noticed Bob making his way around the house on 3 legs, not 4. Although he did extremely well for himself, this was not normal. I discovered his rear left paw was punctured and puffy. So... off to the vet Monday afternoon. It's an abscess. So, surgery booked for cat #2 today. Dropped him off this morning and now he's back - definitely not happy about the situation because he too is now sporting a cone.
To top all this off, Turtle Dad has been on antibiotics since Wednesday of last week for a full-blown ear infection. Better now, but not 100%.
Is this what the Universe considers "balance"?
