Russ just called. He'll arrange to have the vet come and pick Cricket up tomorrow, just to be safe. And to keep me from going stark raving mad between now and Sunday when he gets home.
I was prepared to take her down there myself. I'd have to walk and it's quite a ways. (South Sioux is narrow and long.) He said he'd already talked to the vet before he left, because a cat almost always gets sick while he's gone. Our vet is a great guy. He comes by and picks up the animals for us.
Of course, he also says we put his daughter through college, so I guess it's a fair trade.
