Farm Manager Sabatical

The Farm Manager, Savannah, is on a sabbatical.
Over the past week, we've noticed she seems a tad more lazy than usual. I chalked it up to the ungodly heat we've been having. I sure don't want to work in it, why would she?!

But hubby persisted and said when he held her, she cried and he felt a bump. Then, the next day, I noticed the said bump as she was licking it. We tried to get a closer look, which with Savannah, is easier said than done. Hubby thought it might be a tick. I disagreed, but I knew she needed to see the vet.

So off she went. And the verdict - an abscess. The cause of this abscess - a bite.
My guess, all the cat choirs I have been hearing in the middle of the night might have been where said bite was received. *sigh*

So, she is back on the farm now. After the vet drained her abscess and cleaned her all up.
And I must say, she seems rather happy [and comfy] to be back; resting on the blue prints [written on cardboard!] for the mini's pasture ;)

Get Well Soon Farm Manager! The mice are getting too comfy!
