Year after year I have had to telephone Vadim, the LA vet, when first Lexi, then Pereg, and now Tikva needed the mandatory yearly rabies shots. And year after year, after a few calls or messages left on his voicemail, he would eventually turn up without any warning. Tikki is due for the shot on the 12th of this month and I had set my reminders to pop up daily from the 1st, until I got through to him, and this morning he actually answered instead of his mobile going straight to voicemail. So - he said he will come here on Thursday. No time, just Thursday. Or he will or he will not, but as always I will be a lot happier when Tikki is legal again. I am not holding my breath waiting though, as knowing Vadim he will turn up when he turns up, whenever that will be!
