The $500 haircut

I am home from the vet and feeling furtastic. I came out of the sedation very quickly and I am quite alert.

I only have one bald spot but the rest of my furs are all combed out now. I got my fur all wiped down with a baby wipe and my nails trimmed. It feels so great to be able to move without my fur pulling my skin. I can already notice a big improvement in how I feel!

The doctors found that both of my ears were severely blocked with ear goop. They cleaned it all out and that is the other reason I feel better now. I have more drops to take and they also gave me a shot of vitamin B12. I think I am going to start getting that at home twice a month now.

I lost almost a pound, but the vet is not worried. She felt my manly mancat muscles and decided I was very solid and not losing muscle mass. In fact, for a kitty that is almost 16, they said I am nearly purrrrrfect.

My pee-pee values have not changed. I still have some abnormal values but only trace amounts of protein being shed in my urine, so chances are that my kidneys, while mildly insufficient, are hanging in there for now.

Blood work will be back Monday, but all in all, all good news. Because of the sedation, blood work, urine analysis, etc. the bill was well over $500. I don't know why Mommy keeps giving the vet all our money, but she says I am worth every penny and more.

Dang, that is one expensive haircut, Mouse! At least we don't have to yell at you any more since you got the goop out! Rest up, and yep, you are worth every penny spent. We all are!

We're so glad to hear your vet visit went well and that you're all spiffy and clean (as well as being able to hear better).

Have a great weekend!

Can you hear me now?!? MOL! Such good news, Mouse! Those cat spas aren't cheap, but my mom agrees--they're money well spent.
