The Ginger bug is learning to enjoy us humans! After we gave him his morning medications, my daughter held him while I checked the incisions. While giving him his medications last night, one of my daughters noticed a discoloration, but he would not let her take a closer look. He was more cooperative, this morning. … Continue reading Ginger update: morning cuddles
I visited Ginger this morning, while starting my morning rounds and before my daughter came over with his medications and the new surgical shirt. He enjoyed the visiting part, at least! I even managed to get several usable pictures. Doesn't he look completely malevolent? 😀 He's actually really enjoying the scritches. Then he started rolling … Continue reading Ginger bug update: not a happy camper! 😀
I think Ginger is doing just fine... We can check on him, without disturbing him, through the bathroom window at any time. This morning, we forgot to unplug the heater bulb, and my husband found him basking under it! As the sun room warmed up during the day, however, he moved to follow the sun … Continue reading Ginger update: livin’ the life!
This morning, I went ahead of my daughter to visit with Ginger, so I could first give the outside cats some warm water. There was a slight delay on that. Since we took the extension cord that was providing power to the cat house, so it wouldn't be in Ginger's way, the heated water bowl … Continue reading Ginger update and… that was weird!
The Ginger bug is home again!! With his silver, space age bandage, too! 🙂 He seemed very happy to be out of the carrier and in familiar territory. He is quite active - a little too active! and moving around better, now that he doesn't have that leg dangling off his shoulder. Did I mention … Continue reading Baby’s Back!
This post falls into the full disclosure and transparency zone. I just got a call from the vet clinic, this time about the bill. They were able to give us two estimates, depending on how long the surgery took and how complicated it might get. Those estimates included the examination and x-rays we'd brought him … Continue reading Ginger update; more good news
We have good news! Image source We just got a call from the surgeon at the vet clinic. The surgery went very well. His heart rate was steady the whole time, and there was minimal bleeding. When she called, he was starting to try and lift his head. And yes, he got snipped too, so … Continue reading Ginger, sliced and snipped!

This morning, while doing my morning rounds, the kitties all came out to say hello. Then I saw Ginger. Walking on three legs. His right front leg was dangling and swinging in a most unfortunate way. I tried to go to him, but he "ran" away. I didn't want to risk losing track of him … Continue reading Broken Baby
I did some unexpected running around yesterday and didn't have a chance to post. Now that I am, I'm seeing that the title font in my editor has changed. I did not change the default font. I'm not even sure how I would do that! Well, we'll see if anything is different after I hit … Continue reading This and that, and… why have my fonts changed?
