It’s clear that we have quite a few elderly residents here at the club, so I feel like we could have some better medical facilities. Oh, we’re not quite an old folks’ home- people can love cats at any age, and they do!- but still, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be prepared. We need more than just a few defibrillators and first aid kits dotted around. That’s what you’d find at an ordinary apartment block. No, I’m going to raise at the council meeting that we need some more medical personnel, possibly even overlooking the cat limit on each floor so we can station people.
And then Vera is all buzzing over Melbourne’s hyperbaric medicine industry and how it cured her athlete’s foot. Everyone knows that Vera is a huge fibber, but she has seemed a bit more…springy? There’s a lightness to her that you can’t fake, so maybe hyperbaric treatments really do what they say on the tin. Or on the chamber, as it may be.
That’s the thing about cats: they need stimulation. Intellectual and physical! The elderly folks around here tend to get out of breath, however. It’s unfortunate, but that’s just how it is. However, if we could procure a couple of hyperbaric chambers for the club…well, it’s a general health improvement, isn’t it? I’m sure we could’ve justified it, even if we didn’t have cats to look after and keep happy. Just think of everyone here in the club who could benefit from a bit of oxygen therapy…maybe even the kitties if it’s good for them! And oxygen is always good. People just sit in these chambers and read books and knit and so forth, so it can’t be too bad.
Maybe I’ll ask Vera where she goes in Melbourne. Oxygen therapy for the club…really not such a bad idea, I think.
