We're back!

Mom ran her CDs and now the computer works good as new. The only purrblem now is she needs to reset several forgotten passwords, like the one we used here on catster that she just had to reset.

I just got the stitches taken out of my ear at the vet so hopefully I won't have to go back there until my booster shot in March.

Mom has plans to be out in town this evening so she's gonna cone me to make sure my ear keeps healing properly, they told us to keep it. She'll be home tonight after the Christmas parade & high school play. She's an adult but has a cousin still attending and is in the play. They're doing Footloose.


Computer purrblems

Mom has noticed that every now and then the blue screen of death pops up and then the computer automatically restarts. This is starting to happen more frequently than she wishes so she put everything on ext hard drive and will be resetting computer after dinner tonight. She can't have this purrblem right now because she has lots of computer based stuff to do.

I go back to the vet Thursday afternoon to get the stitches out of my ear before mom has to get around town for stuff. She's also going to the Christmas light parade and school play that night but otherwise is staying home.


1 more week

I only have to wear the cone for 1 more week. My stitches come out just before next weekend and then hopefully I won't have to wear the cone. Mom might let me have a little break from wearing it today when I eat my wet food since I haven't groomed myself as much.

She's not completely sure what Brutus is gonna do with our area of west MN (we're not far from the Dakota borders) so she ran out to the stores last night to get more food for us and additional litter. She thinks of it like being a squirrel, better to get a little more than usual this time of year instead of being stuck out in a storm.


Mom is so excited for 2013

Wow, diary pick again huh?

There are 2 big reasons mom is looking forward to 2013. She's going to enjoy seeing Kenny Chesney and Taylor Swift return with their entertaining shows.

She's also glad the vet took payments on my treatment since she's already gotta get the Kenny tickets when Dec begins. She also messed up her mom's car door/window (oops) so she's gotta get the tricky business plan outlines complete so she can get to work from home & start making a little extra spending $.

1 more week of wearing this e-collar. We're both looking forward to my not needing to wear it anymore. She keeps a check on the ear and it seems like its healing properly but not taking any chances of taking the cone off me just yet.


This darn e-collar I just wanna scratch my ear!

I'd love nothing more than to be able to scratch the ear that was just surgically corrected at the vet a few days ago but mom isn't allowing me to do that. She's not gonna take it off me 'til the stitches come out at the vet next week, and I'll have to wear the Thundershirt as well when I return. I like the Thundershirt and mom loves what it does for me in times of stress. I'll have to wear it on Weds for the storm siren & fire alarm. Mom is gonna take me into the bedroom & shut all the doors, maybe that'll help reduce the noise for the fire alarm.

They used a laser to help reduce my pain and they did the biopsy punch incisions. Mom still has a scar on her left index finger as well as on her chin from when she fell off the horse, so I guess we'll be a matching pair with minor scars.


Recovering at home

I'm eating, drinking and cuddling with mama just like nothing happened. I'm just wearing the cone so I won't mess up the ear the vet just fixed for me. I just want to scratch it! Mom is keeping a close eye on me for the weekend as my recovery is still just beginning. I can jump up to the window & the top of my cat tower but she helps me back down to the ground. She's also making fast & easy meals for herself so she can make sure I don't get into any trouble. The bill was a little over $200 and mom wrote a few postdated checks and left them there so she's not going broke on the fixed income we rely on. She feels a little odd spending so much time offline and not on the computer but she just wants to be sure I'm safe and the only reason we have to return is to get the stitches out. She's only offline when I'm not sleeping so she can keep a watchful eye on me. She helped me with my grooming after my Fancy Feast this morning.


Honey I'm home!

I'm super happy to be home. When mom set me down and opened my carrier door I zoomed out as fast as I could! I had some food and mom tossed treats around for me. I'm still not happy that she left me at the vet so no lovies so far. I have to go back in 2 weeks to get the stitches out but I feel pretty darn good now, better than before.

Mom pulled out some treats so I warmed up to her faster. We're rebonded now. The fur on the ear and part of my neck might be shaved but it'll grow back, and she loves me just the same.


Update on Dusty

I haven't heard anything so I just called up the vet and they said he's doing just fine. They had to open the ear and drain the stuff that made it puffy & swollen so he has stitches that have to be removed in a couple weeks and he had a minor fever that doesn't exist anymore so I'm going to get him in a couple hours. I know he'll be happy to be home and I'll be happy to have him home with me again. I'll be very careful about petting him near that ear for the next couple weeks.


Vet check update

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!


Puffed ear update

Mom called the vet and they insist on her bringing me in so they can take a look at me, so we're going on Thursday afternoon. Other than the ear thing I'm eating pretty normally n stuff so mom is still concerned but not too worried. They don't want her to do anything until they see me so she's taking me in asap when partial pay day happens. I will be wearing my Thundershirt as going out stresses me pretty badly, and she'll be right there with me.

I added a photo of the ear on my page under the Halloween pics. I'm going in tomorrow afternoon.
