Arrival Story:
My husband was standing in a busy intersection working a major traffic accident when this little kitten ran right up to him, crossing two lanes of traffic and almost getting run over. Hence, his name, Major. Mike placed Major in the back of the patrol car and brought him home. Major was estimated to be approximately 10 weeks old when found. Although we originally named him "Major" he does not answer to that name because since he was kitten everytime he got into areas he shouldn't have, I would yell out, "Get down you little monkey!" So, he only answers to "Monkey" now, even though his name is SUPPOSED to be "Major".

We got the results back on the "mass" in my mouth that was surgically removed last week. It was NON-CANCEROUS!!!! :-)

I'm healing up very nicely and am eating well and back to my old self. I have a post surgery checkup scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

Thank you all for your purrs. They were greatly appreciated.

"The Monkey"

No rosies please....but comments are welcomed :-)


All about me

I was rescued about 4 months ago. I acquired my name because "deputy dad" was working a "major" accident when I suddenly ran from nowhere right up to him, crossing three lanes of traffic and almost getting run over.

I have my own room with everything I need. I can't mingle with my sibs (Maytag, Kassy & Kayleigh) because I like to fight with them nonstop....especially my new brother Maytag! He outweighs me by almost 10 pounds but I love how little ol' me can make him run and cry like a little girl! Mommy and Daddy call me "Monkey" because I climb and jump on everything and I am never quiet. Daddy tells mommy that she needs to stop calling me "Monkey" because I will never learn my real name.

In other news....I'm 7 months old now. Mommy took me to the vet two weeks ago because she "thought" I had tapeworms. Turns out it was a false alarm, but during the examination, the vet found a 'mass' about the size of a marble growing in my mouth from under my tongue. He didn't know if it was an abcess or a tumor, so he put me on antibiotics. Day before yesterday, mommy and daddy took me back in to be re-checked and there was NO change in the 'mass', so mommy opted to have it surgically removed.

I went into surgery yesterday morning. Just prior to mommy picking me up yesterday afternoon, I bit my tongue and had blood on my paws and face. The vet wasn't able to clean me up before mommy's arrival because I wouldn't let him or any of his staff touch me again! I growled like a big mean lion and threatened to bite any of them if they so much as put a hand near me! I even growled at mommy when she came to pick me up.
Anyway, the vet doesn't know if the 'thing' is cancerous or not so it is being sent to a lab and we should know something next week.

I have to take antibiotcs (again) and also some pain medication every 12 hours. I do something weird since I've returned home from surgery....... I keep trying to flip my water bowl over. Mommy doesn't understand why I just started doing this. She has to keep a big bath towel under my bowl because I keep making a mess with the water.

Anyway.....thats what's going on in my life at the moment. Please don't send your rosies to me, but all comments, purrs and friendship requests are welcomed :-)
