But Ming, does your vet sign with their first name and put a kiss on the bottom ?
That took me back a bit, apart from receiving the card. It's not exactly what I expected from a professional person who isn't really a mate - I saw her for the first time about 6 weeks.
Still, I'm not complaining - she's a right little darling and apparently recently divorced. I was just taken aback by it a bit and was wondering if it was normal protocol.
BTW thanks trailmonkey. Ernie was indeed a great pet/mate/comforter. Unfortunately the little bugger choose to get quite seriously ill the day before my mother died - just when I needed his comforting and reassuring purring/face rubbing the most ! He hung on for another 16 days before I and the vets could see that there was no hope and I was forced to do one last favour for my old mate. I was particularly proud of the fact that I was there with him at the end, I've never had the courage to do that before, but I owed it to him. And I'm glad I did too, it wasn't that bad and I would do again in the future now.
