The update on Dusty
The vet took a look at his ear and decided that surgery is the best way to help him and clean out the ear itself, so they offered me 2 options where I could bring him home today or pick him up tomorrow. If I brought him home today I'd have to look after him so with the awards being on tonight I opted to leave him in their capable hands just for the night. He's probably going to be a cone head short term until he's all healed.
They're willing to let me make payments since I explained I'm on fixed income so I don't have to worry as much about paying it all at once. I'll make the first payment when I go get him tomorrow.
I'm sure he's looking forward to getting home and after so much time with him it feels odd not having him with me at home. I miss him and can't wait 'til he's back. I'm sure he misses home and his mommy. I left a T-shirt with my smell with him for a little home comfort.
I've left his food & water in his normal dishes untouched so he can pig out when he comes home and I scooped his litter box since I know how important it is for cleanliness after surgery.
Before the vet took him to their kennel I sat on a chair & placed him on my lap. He now weighs almost 13 lbs!
