Afternoon off.  
Had to knock off early today in order to take Flossie to the vet; her left rear foot was swollen and she wasn't putting any weight on it at all. Turned out to be an abcess, the result of a bite from another cat (my money is on Fatty Kitten) and after draining and antibiotics she is expected to be fine in no time. Already tonight she's using the foot, albeit reluctantly, and she wanted her dinner so I'm not too worried about her now.

Felt like I was playing truant, though, slipping out mid-afternoon. There's something deliciously wicked about being out and about when you really should be desk-bound, even though I'd cleared it with my boss.

It's a whole different world when you are out and about at a different time. Less people maybe because it is not the morning/home rush. You see things you miss.

Glad Flossie is on the mend. Wanting food is the best sign she is OK.

You see things in DAYLIGHT which is a whole different experience. But it's not like being on holidays, and deep-down it still felt like I was cheating on my job.

I understand about the guilt feeling as technically you were absent during normal working hours. HOWEVER, the kids come first ;)

I trust your little patient continues to improve.

Poor Flossie, I hope she gets well soon. Please give her a big hug from Merlin and me.

I hope Flossie is feeling a lot better.

I love that feeling too, of skivving off, even when you're not. :D

Skivving off is exactly what it felt like! Like I was putting one over my employer, even though my absence was sanctioned.

Oooh! That is definitely deliciously wicked,Dhaarling. *g* It is so diferent to get out while it is still light in the Winter.

Poor little Flossy. Bet she's getting lots of cuddles now and hope you gave Fatty Kitten a smacked bum.

I think you must be a bad influence on me! *g*

I can't really blame Fatty Kitten, she's just doing what she does. I have told her to please keep her teeth to herself, though.
