After getting Butterscotch's wound stitched, and keeping her in the house overnight, we've been keeping an eye on her to make sure she is doing okay. As much as possible, anyhow. She is not making it easy! I had to zoom in, just to get a picture of her NOT letting me come close, this … Continue reading Stubborn Kitty!
We ended up keeping Butterscotch indoors, overnight. After 2 hours in the carrier, she was certainly more active and alert after the anesthetic wore off, but she was totally cracked out! We did not feel it would be safe for her to be outside, yet. She got the basement all to herself for the night. … Continue reading Back outside: Butterscotch recovery update
Well, Butterscotch is home! Just look at those pupils!!! She is still recovering from the anesthetic, so we've been told to keep her in the carrier for a couple of hours. She is on a 24 hour painkiller, the sutures will dissolve on their own in 3 weeks, and she has the 14 day antibiotic. … Continue reading Groggy Kittie
I spotted movement in an unexpected place while doing my rounds this morning, and just had to try for some photos! Yes, that is a cat butt. This old shed's roof is falling apart, and it looked like she was trying to decide if she could jump down through one of the holes. Wise kitty … Continue reading Cat on a … cold, snowy roof! Plus a trip to the vet
This afternoon, one of my daughters and I brought our inside mama cat to the vet for a check up. She has been acting very ornery and out of sorts, and my daughter, sweetheart that she is, wanted to get her checked out. They did some blood tests and even a quick ultrasound to make … Continue reading Babies, bills and pills
Today, I was able to get the van in and finally get the front brakes done. We've got quite a bit of driving to do at the end of the month, so I'm glad to be able to do it now, instead of in the middle of all that. It has been a few days … Continue reading Brakes are done!
Well, the deed is done. Little Susan had an appointment with the vet, yesterday, and she is now recovering from surgery! Since we had to make sure to 1) have her available to take to the vet in the first place and 2) make sure she didn't eat anything after 8pm the night before, we … Continue reading One down, more to go!
Today was the day. Dah Boys gave up dah boys. Not these guys, though. Morning visitors. Nope; it was time for Cheddar and David to head back to the vet. When we had to reschedule David and Cheddar's trip to the vet, today was an open day. That didn't last long. I got a call … Continue reading Certified Nut Free!
I will start with the good news, first. Mild Cheddar went through surgery very well! As we wrote previously, what we thought was a dislocated rib, turned out not to be. The vet made an incision at the top, but also found the entry wound in his armpit area and opened that up a bit, … Continue reading What happened, and what didn’t happen
