The Life of Ka - zar

I'm home from the vet

Happy to say I am home from the vet after my two day stay. As most of you know I had my infected toe removed and fluids for dehydration. Mum didn't realise that I was dehydrated until she took me to the vet on Wednesday. After the fluids I feel a lot better.

I didn't like being caged up for two days but most of yesterday I was too bombed out on pain meds after the surgery to care much. Everyone at the vets were so nice to me and I was good to them.

One of the first things I did after go home and ate a full can of fancy feast was give mum a long cuddle with lots of purrs. I wanted to let her know that there's no hard feelings. I love her and know she only does what's in my best interests at heart.

My foot still hurts a bit but it's getting better. Now that this toe is gone the vet is confident that the infection won't come back. If it does mum has the toe they removed in a cupboard somewhere. So they can test it. Have to say I'll be happy if I never see it again.

Here is a cat fact we learnt at the vet the other day. cats are born with three legs and a spare. I didn't know that. I'm happy to get rid of this toe but I don't want to try the three leg theory out any time soon.

I want to thank everyone that purred for me, sent rosettes and made comments on my diary. They mean a lot to mum and me that there are so many kitties out in catsterland that care about me.

Every message was read and really appreciated.

I hope this diary find my mates and their families happy and healthy and I send my purrs to those doing it tough.

Purrs and lots of hugs your Aussie mate

Very good news, Ka-Zar! Yeah, even when the humans deliver you to the vet, you have to forgive them. They really do have your best interests at heart.

Hope the dehydration was just from the infection, my friend, but if you need more fluids, tell your Mom from mine that it's not that hard to give them, once you've had a bit of practice.
