First I want to thank all of my friends for the purrs - they helped! The nice dr at this place said that the fracture I have is very small & he did not feel that it needed to be splinted. He feels that more of my pain is from a pulled muscle or tendon that must have happened at the same time. I have to rest as much as I can & try real hard not to wratle, and see where things are in a couple weeks. If it is not better, then we will prob have an MRI. He even gave mom his email to keep him updated. This place was amazing - momma says it is bigger & prettier than some people dr offices she has been to! They have dermatology, cardiology & all sorts of specialties there. If any of you are in the Chicagoland area - keep this place in mind. We are on the south side of Chicago, and it was about 1 hr 15 min from us in Buffalo Grove. And, the consultation was nowhere near as pricey as Mom was expecting. It was $82. Which for a specialist was not bad at all & hopefully my insurance will pay for 80%. So I just have to try & be good & quiet and get better. Thanks again!

 

I just can't catch a break -news about my leg

The big snip is all done - not so bad - Doc gave me some pain meds that woooo my pupils were huge & I was a bit woozy all day.

When Dr called to tell mom that my surgery was done, she told her that I was showing pain in my foot, elbow & shoulder. She asked mom if it was ok to do xrays. (THe extra little claw was just a corn or callous - doc popped it right off). However, it seems that at some point I fractured the growth plate in my elbow & maybe my toe. Since that could affect my leg growth, I have to go see an orthopedic specialist. Dr said she felt better to have an expert opinion, since I am growing like a weed. Hopefully I won't need surgery, maybe a splint, maybe nothing at all. But I am in pain for sure, so something needs to be done. I go tomorrow morning. The place is an hour away, but mom says she will take me wherever I need to go. (Here's to hoping the insurance will cover this) She will have to use the $ she started to save for Maizy's endo. But since Maizy seems to be holding steady - it should be ok.

Boy in my short 6 months I have had a blade of grass in my nose that caused a URI, pneumonia, got frightened so bad from the men that broke in my house, had my parts removed, and now a broken leg. Dr said it could have happened when I was wrastling with Smitty, or if I jumped down off something the wrong way or even stretched wierd. So keep your paws crossed for me again. Mom will let you know the results.

This morning, The Dad picked me up & put me on the bed, and played kitty fish with me for a long time. I had so much fun! I am still too little to jump up there, and mom thinks my paw also prevents me from trying. But I was not scared of The Dad at all! He is very very nice, but to me he is big & has a deep voice, so I have been a little scared of him, especially since the break-in (mom figures it was at least 1 or 2 men that broke in & they were loud & scary) So I was kind of always slinking away when he walked in the room. But he has been trying really hard to make me not scared. He calls me Mr. Felix. Then Smitty jumped up there too, and we all played together some more! I was so pooped out I took a long nap! Happy Saturday!

mom has some new pics of me - mom says that what she has heard about pictures of black kitties are so true - it is hard to get a good pic, but she got some - now just gotta put em on here! I go for the big snip on Nov. 1. Mom also wants the vet to look at my paw. I sort of walk slow & funny and I tend to hold it up when I am sitting. She went to cut my nails, and when she held that paw I pretty much went ballistic - which is VERY unlike me. I don't really run around alot like a 5 month old kitten should do, and mom wonders if it is because my foot feels funny. There looks to be almost another nail growing under the one nail on my pawpad. Not an extra toe, but a nail. So the vet will look at it when I go in, and maybe can fix it then. I would go sooner, but the vet is gone for a week, and mom kinda has her hands full with Maizy right now. Other than that, I am doing very well. I stay upstairs most of the day now, and doze in mom's closet or one of the kitty beds. I try to meow at mom, but I still squeak. SHe says it is very cute though. oh and guess what I did? The other day, mom was at the kitchen table having her coffee & watching the morning news, and I jumped up onto her lap all by myself! she did not even call me - I just did it! I took a nap in her arms, and purred the whole time. OH yea mom says she is gonna get me a collar, cause when I lay on the dark green rug in her room, sometimes she cannot see me - & doesn't wanna squish me! Well, mom has a bunch to write in Maizy's diary, so I will sign off for now with a squeak!

 

growing up!

I went to the vet today & got my rabies shot. I am official! I am now 5lb! so the vt said to mom that I can have my "boy parts" removed. I will get a microchip then too. Mom is waiting for my insurance to be approved, so that it can count towards the deductible, but I should be going this month. I am doing better - I howled the whole way to the vet's office! Thank you so much to everyone for the balloons, and the Cat o the Day wishes. Mom wants to thank everyone individually, but it has been a bit crazy round here, so we at least wanted to say THANKS! Monday, she takes the last feral kitten Jett, to her foster momma. This lady is taking the other 2 - she is awesome! squeaks to all for an excellent weekend!

wow...Mom was really surprised when she went online real quick yesterday! I cannot thank everyone enough! Yesterday was a beautiful day, and mom had to return most of the traps she borrowed, and did some more outside stuff. I lounged on the screened porch & watched Tigger watching mom. We will be on to thank everyone & look at all the goodies prob tomorrow, but I wanted to do this quick silent meow-out to everyone!
Some awesome news, yesterday in celebration of my day, I played & RAN AROUND upstairs! I was upstairs almost the whole day! Mom ran downstairs to throw in a load of laundry & she heard this awwwroooooo awwwrooo noise from outside. It was me by the door wanting IN TO MY HOUSE! I had an awesome day. More tomorrow & many thanks again to all!

Mom says each day I get a little better. I keep coming upstairs alot more, and when I do go downstairs, I am not hiding in the back of the fridge anynmore. I like to nap in the big carrier in the laundry room like my own little cave. I don't seem to jump and startle quite as much. Everyone is still being very quiet & talking to me alot when I come upstairs. I even got some nip & wow did I like it! Mom did not think I would get the kittybuzz on it yet, but I did. She thinks that will help too cuz it is a feel-good thing. I got some Calming Treats too, and they are yummy. They have vitamin B, L-theanine & colostum in them meant to relax, so yesterday & today I ate one. It's not like mom wants to drug me up or anything, but she is just trying to help me feel better. I even laid on the bed for a while (she set me on it cuz I can't jump up there yet) but I stayed for a while! I also think that I was probably picking up everyone here being upset with everything too. So mom says once the safe doors get put in, she will feel better & safer and Nana too - so that should even help more. Thank you everyone for the gifts! talk to you soon! silent meows, Felix the Brave

 

Blimey!

still so scared

I keep trying real hard to be a brave boy, but it is not so easy. Every time I hear a loud noise, it really scares me. The ice cube dispenser on the fridge, the snap of the cat food can opening, car doors. I even jumped when the mail slot opened. And zoom down stairs I go. Mom found my super secret hidey place though, and I cannot get hurt there. Actually Smitty showed her where I was. I also crawled into one of the cat carriers that was open in the laundry room. I have been coming upstairs to eat, and mom tries to play with me while I am up here to make it a positive place again, and gives me food & I got some freeze dried chicken treats! I am not the same kitten I was a week ago, and it has made mom so angry at them. She says that here she offered me a home to be happy & safe in, and they took that away from me. I really hope that I will not stay this frightened - I hate to see Mom worrying like this.
mom here:
I am doing everything I can think of. We all move very quiet, I try not to make any loud noise. I hold him & pet him. He did fall asleep on me Sunday night, but he would not sleep upstairs in his favorite little box. Along with the noise, I am pretty sure that Felix was in the bed in the kitchen, as he loved to nap there. When I looked at the blanket in the box, there was glass kind of in a semi-circle, which tells me that he was probably in it, and they threw the candleholder so hard, I mean the glass was everywhere, some must have landed on him. So putting all that together for a 4 month old baby to go through- ohh I could just scream. The other kits are a bit spookish, but not too bad. I put the Feliway in the basement, but I thought about a calming collar - I don't know if they can be used for a kitten though. If anyone has any ideas to help my poor little boy, PLEASE let me know. He was just starting to feel relaxed & comfortable too, and it is even worse than when he was first here. We lost all that progress & then some. I just want him back to the happy go lucky kitten he was.
