Thank you for all the gotcha day wishes! ssshhh don't tell, but I got a tiny bite of crust from Momma's pizza Friday as a special treat. We really don't get people food, but once in a while as a super special treat. I crunched that crust up good! Momma is pretty busy with work & getting a new employee, so she will update Maizy & Smitty's pages in a while. And any free time is spent researching trying to figure out what is wrong with my big brother Tigger. Hope everyone is haveing a good end o the summer! I know I AM!! purrs from the Feefer

 

a happy place

Well, 1 year ago tomorrow, I got me a forever home of my own! Now being with a bunch of other kitties under the firewood pile was not so bad. I mean it was safe in the yard, and we did get food 2 times a day. And whenever Momma came out, I would come by her & she would talk to me & pet me. That is how she knew I was getting very sick. I never really did get to play with my kitten sibs - now momma knows why. I remember staring at the food, hanging my head down, and being so very hungry, and yet I could not eat. She tried to feed me with a spoon away from the other kitties, but I couldn't eat much & just got thinner. Once the grass was pulled out of my nose, I did feel a little better, but by then the infection was deep in my lungs & eyes, and I was a pathetic little mess of snot & bones. But Momma did not give up on me! She took me to the vet & gave me medicine & told me that I had a warm bed & lots of food, and I would never have to worry about the scary outside any more! I have been having my share of problems - one knee has been fixed, and it looks like I will most likely have another surgery on the other side, but I was such a good boy & I try to be sweet. I really do try not to hiss at The Dad - he is always nice to me, I am just a scaredy guy (and he is bigger than me) I know that most likely this little black cat would not be here today if Momma had not helped me, and every day I make sure to chirp at her & touch her with my paws to say thank you & that I love her so much. I have seen & survived much in my 1 year of life, and I am so happy that I can spend the rest of it with a full belly, a soft rug by the window, and more pets & kisses than I can count. Momma says I am just the little black cat she waited for. And ps she is just the momma I waited for!

woohoo! FUR

My furs are growing in really well. My leg is not nekkid, but little peach fuzzies. I am walking much better too. I still sway my hips bigtime, but that is from my hips having no sockets. I am holding that back leg straighter - not crouching as much when I walk. So Mom feels it was really successful! I go to see Dr. West in a week or so & she will decide what steps to take next. Momma says that if I have to have another surgery, she wants it before my year renewal so there is not another deductible. So far the insurance has paid their portion for my prelim xrays! Mom is submitting my surgery bills now. It took them a while cause it changed from PurinaCare to 24Pet Watch. As long as the premium is paid they cannot drop us, and cannot refuse a pre-existing if it was paid for before. That is why Momma was worried about my legs - that they may decide it is pre-existing. So hopefully they will process this one faster. Keeping paws crossed. THen they will offer a renewal from their company. We are kinda stuck now, cause to change companies, they won't pay anything for Smitty's teeth or my leg.
Momma has been calling me Mr Sassafrass lately, cause I am getting a bit fiesty, which is good. Now I just gotta not hiss at The Dad...working on it....
Have a good weekend all! I know I will!

 

struttin' mah stuff

I got my stitches out on Monday. Doc says things look great & I can walk around, but still must try not to go up & down stairs. I really want to go down to the landing so I can go out on the screen porch. Momma says that this weekend she will carry me out there & I can nap while she plants her flowers. No more CONE! Seriously Momma said that I went from being depressed to a happy kitty. I was strutting around the kitchen with my tail up & I vibrate the end at Momma when I am happy. Hopefully I may not need surgery on that hip. Dr. West says it is a long road, and time will tell if I need it - we will know in a few months. I came home and ate like a pony! I wasn't really eating alot with that stupid cone. So now Momma said all I have to do is rest & heal & behave. I will try my best! My incision is healed so well, you could hardly see it! & my furs are growing in some. I got a couple of bites of chicken today. Momma said that it is good for growing bones. I spent almost all day Monday after we got back grooming all the spots I could not reach with that cone on. I wore myself out! But I am as sleek as I can be for now. A couple spots are still hard for me cause my leg hurts a little bit, but not bad. I was even able to work on chewing up my NipStick that I was saving. No word from the insurance company yet, but Momma was able to get CareCredit so at least that helps anyways. Thanks you all for keeping me in your purrs & thoughts. Keep em coming, cause it aint over yet. I will probably have my other knee done and not sure about my hippybones. But right now, I am one happy kitten!

I felt pretty good yesterday. Momma took my cone off for a while, and before she realized it, I was licking my owie & pulled 2 stitches out. The wound is closed & not red or anything, I am healing very fast, and I go in Monday to get the rest out. Needless to say, the cone is back on to stay. I think I just got so excited to groom myself that I got carried away. I was even strutting for a few steps to show off. Momma says that means I must not be hurting as much- which is good because I had my last dose of pain meds this morning. Momma posted a couple pictures of my owie & nekkid leg. Does anyone know why they would shave a spot on my back near my tail? Mom is just curious. Maybe for a type of monitor or something...
I want to thank everyone for the gifties & well wishes, they helped so very much.
Back to update in a few days!

resting easy

I have been a good boy. I have been sleeping alot, but I come out during the day for a while,and I walk slow, but my leg seems straighter. Momma sets me up on the small table with a rug that is next to the cat tree (the rug is thicker & cushier than the tree) while she is sitting at the kitchen table. I doze & look at the birdies. She took my cone off for a while too, and I only licked my owie 1 time. I was more interested in grooming my fur in all the places I couldn't reach. I get the stupid cone put back on though if she is not watching & at night time. I go Monday for my stitches to be out. Mom took a few pictures but she has to go on the laptop puter to post them as they are downloaded on there - she will do that later on. I get visited when one of my family sits on the cat tree - I get a sniff or two in. Even Maizy stopped by to see me. Momma says she was looking for me when I was at the hospital. We get along good because I don't pick on her like my big brothers do. So far so good!

 

home finally & a ddp? yahoo!

I came home this afternoon. I have this stupid cone thing on my neck & it keeps getting in my way, and I ended up getting my leg caught in it - but Momma says I have to keep it on for a while. My leg is all nekkid & I have a shaved spot on my back near my tail...not sure what that is for. Mom was nervous this morning, because when she called at the hospital they told her I was running a fever, and that I had gotten upset when a tech tried to check me & I tried to jump out of the cage, and when the tech stopped me, I bit her. So Mom had to bring my rabies certificate in to show them that I had my shot & I was just upset. My fever came down - the Dr said sometimes the medicine or stress can cause it. I am glad to be home though. Everyone gathered around my carrier to sniff me, and then Momma took me into her room where it is nice & quiet. I have a soft bed & my favorite green rug, and a potty box with low sides, and my water & FOOD. I did not want to eat at the hospital, so I ate my full I can tell you. Momma held the dish for me cause I can't eat so good with this stupid cone. She said something about trying to find a soft one. Once I kind of relaxed I slept alot. I had dinner & my pain medicine, and Momma sat on the floor with me & petted me for a long time. I purred so loud because I am glad to be home. I was afraid that maybe she left me there! But she said "my Feefer I would never leave my sweet baby - I just want you all fixed" So I will do my best to be good & not try & pull my cone off, and I will sleep because Momma says that is good medicine. Now lets hope the insurance will pay some (total $2800 for one gimpy little leg) Oh the one lady said "by cuddle kitty" to me when I was leaving. I think it was the same one I bit, so she was not mad at me. THank you for all of your purrs, they helped me alot. Momma will update soon. She was trying to take a picture of my owie, but I was not cooperating, so maybe later. sleepy,owie, purrs, Felix

Dr. West just called. Felix is awake & recovering nicely & his pain is being managed well. He did good - she said they were able to stabilize his knee & there was no damage to the cruciate ligaments. He has 2 pins in his knee. She commented on how sweet & little he is, and said the techs & the anesthesiologist even remarked how sweet & cuddly he is. That's my Feefer-kitty! I will pick him up tomorrow & then try to figure out the best place for him to rest. I do not have small kids, so it is pretty quiet around here (unless the hockey game is on ahem The Dad is a big Blackhawks fan)
Thanks for your purrs & hugs - they helped so much. I will post either tomorrow or Sunday how the Feefs is doing. :)

Felix is having his knee surgery today. The vet was wonderful & explained so much. She wants to try the conservative approach & just do his worst knee, in hopes that it will help his hip bones align a bit better. She says he may or may not have to have the hip done - it is a wait & see when his knee heals. I would rather do it one at a time also - it will give him a chance to heal in between. The tech that came in to get Felix was so nice too - he says he is a cat person & was giving Felix kisses on his head. So I feel very good about them. Dr. West will call me later & I can get him tomorrow. Keep the paws crossed!
