It seems that, as aging tomcats are wont to do, Watson has developed struvite crystalluria. The vet says I caught it early enough that it can be treated with a special diet that is, of course, not cheap.

No kidney stones, which tend to be fatal in cats, and no infection. Grateful for small mercies, me. The vet’s bill was not small, but neither was it as bad as I feared it might be.

I hoofed over to my fiddler friend’s house this morning and we played tunes for an hour and a half in her garden. Later in the afternoon, once Watson was resettled at home, I took a trot around the neighbourhood, checking out the annual explosion of lilac blossom. According to my Fitbit, I logged more than five miles today, and my wonky foot DOES NOT HURT!

So, all in all, a good day.
