I am writing this from the hospital, where I have captured the hearts of my wonderful vet, Dr. Perkin, and her special ladies. Did you know that one of her vet tech is named Peggy too?
Well, first the sad, since I want to end with the good: I came in to have my teeth cleaned today, and to see if I was going to get to keep my white ear or not. Mom also wanted them to re-do my bloodwork. Well..... it turns out that I am positive for FIV. I was picked on my bigger cats when I was on my own, and it must have happened when I got into a fight at some point. So Dr. Perkin said she does not want to operate on me until I have a couple weeks of heavy duty antibiotics in me first. My mom is sad, but she also knows a lot about FIV, and she knows that I can live happily with Ralph and Joe with no problem. She also has a lot of good stuff for my immune system, so all in all, I am in a good place.
...Sigh... I think mom needs a bigger hug than I do to be honest. ♥
Now for the good news: My ear is STAYING! Yes, it is normal!!! I will always have a jagged edge from the frostbite, but I get to keep it. Yaaayyyy!
And for the REALLY GOOD NEWS: You may have noticed that the ~Adoptable~ has been removed from my profile. Mom and Dad think they need to make absolutely sure I get the best nutrition and immune support possible, and although I don't love everybody 100%, I am showing them that I do love living here. They just wanted me to be as happy as I can be. But because I need extra special TLC, they asked me if I would be willing to overlook some of everybody's less than perfect qualities. I said yes, and now I am staying. So March 1 is going to be my birthday from now on.
With lots of love,
