Blues going to the Dr. in the morning.

Blue has been fighting this ear problem for a while and it gets better then it goes away some and then it's back. This is about the 6 or 7th time the scab has dropped off and then it comes back. Now it is much bigger and nasty looking. So he is without food tonight in case surgery is needed. The Dr. said that may be the next option. Blue was tested for cancer and it does not seem to be the problem. Since he has aids it could be the beginning of something bigger. I also saw a small area on his neck that looks the same.
Many years ago we had a cat who had a skin disorder and it so bad and several long weeks at the vet and many painful months later we had to let her go. We had decided to do it and the Dr. went in to give her the shot and she had already passed in her sleep. They determined later that she had a flesh eating bacteria.
We have already decided that we will not want that for Blue. We have been concerned about him since his cage mate died of kidney problems last year and he is alone. We give him a lot of extra attention and brushing and treats but he still has not been himself.
We do not look at this as a sad time as he has been with us so long. We will give him what ever the Dr. thinks best. He is such an easy going sweet guy. He is one of the few we have who does not curse at the Vet. He doesn't even cry when he rides there.
So we will know more Sat or Monday.
You guys have a good weekend. Remember don't have to much catnip and fence climb. Not safe you know. So you and your Humans be careful and enjoy this beautiful weekend.
