This week’s WordPress photo challenge is regret. That is a tough one – most regrets I have in life do not have photographs, which is actually a portion of the regret! Not bringing my camera and missing the incredible full moon this past week would be one of them! But alas, there are no photos….only the snapshot in my mind!
This picture is of my darling Sammie. I have had her for 7 years – she is like my little baby. I am using this picture for the sentiment of regret because last summer she got really sick. (Not to worry – this is regret with a happy ending!) You can see her pink bandages over the IV port – like I said, my poor little girl was really sick.
Sammie has always been, and is back to being a hyper little cat. She puts us all to shame with her energy. Last summer, I noticed her slow down, and sleep a lot more. She lost a lot of weight – I chalked it up to her escaping on more than a few nights and no doubt spending the entire night on the prowl! I was wrong – she went into acute renal failure and we nearly lost her! I regret not following my instincts and getting to the vet ASAP.
You can see from the picture below, that she is back to her normal self! Mischievious as ever! The eyes are brighter and she has regained that bounce in her step. With spring just around the corner, I am sure she will be out there terrorizing mice and birds again!
From reading a few other posts in the weekly photo challenge, it appears I am not alone in finding regret a difficult challenge. Here are a few links to other posts that I thought were good. (Again, sorry if I have missed something spectacular out there, I regret I didn’t have time to look at them all!!!) Please feel free to add in the comments section.
