Last week was a very sad week for me as my best buddy and brofur, Chico, fell really ill. Mom thought it best that we didn't mention it on here as we really haven't been around too much to keep up with all of our other furr-friends.
Chico made it through surgery, however the outcome wasn't as great as what had been expected by the vets. The infection was very close to his brain and they were unable to get it to drain. They explained to mom that his condition was very serious, but they released him to her and he was able to come home. Even while on two different antibiotics and pain meds, Chico's condition was going down hill. He didn't want me near him, and finally found a spot to hide in Saturday morning that not even mom could reach him. He remained in there for the next 32 hours. We were all extremely worried that he might not make it through this. It was the weekend, no vets available, but if mom could have gotten to him she would have rushed him into Las Vegas as they have 24 hour emergency clinics.
Then yesterday afternoon, Chico came out, and for the first time in 5 days, drank something!! (A liquid supplement) By yesterday evening Chico still did not care for me to be near him, but was cuddling in mom's lap!! :) Then today, although he still is not interested in food, he took a short walk with mom outback. He plopped down, rolled around on his back and purred! We all cheered.... Chico is obviously feeling better, and on MY birthday! What a most special gift!! Hurray! I can't wait until he feels well enough to resume our daily wrestling matches! I've missed him so much!
I want to thank all of those who knew about my brofur's condition and purred and prayed for him. (On FB) The POP worked miracles again.
I also want to say a big thanks for my birthday wishes from my pawsome Catster pals. (grateful hugs) Mom and I tried to get all of our thanks out tonight, but it's late and she said I could finish up tomorrow. I really appreciate all of you for thinking of me! I'm now 11 years old and still the King around here! *hears a faint giggle from Chico in the background* :)
Happy Spring and Easter,
Headbonks & Love,

Sending love and purrs to Chico. We are purring that he continues to feel better.
Love, Luke and Family
Great news that Chico is improving even just a little bit - slow and steady wins the race! We're sending purrs and purrs to him, and belated happy birthday wishes to you.
And one more thing - don't think that you ever can't tell us about what is going on just because you haven't been around much to keep up with friends! A quick note in a diary that lets us know you need purrs, and then you'll have many more purrs and purrs sometimes pull us through the bad times!
Take care and keep us updated on Chico!
Wow! That is a cool story. Peekie and I are purring for Chico to get well, and Missy Mups is sprinkling angel dust.
Purring for Chico! You're a good brother!
We are purring for Chico too and we will continue to purr for him...we believe in the POTP!!! My sisfur QT is watching over him as other catster kitties are doing...she sends angel dust to help him heal
Glad Chico is doing better - I'll send him purrs.
Yaay! It sounds like Chico is feeling better. We're purring very hard for Chico to make a full recovery! *sprinkles angel healing dust on Chico*
Like Gleek said, please don't think you can't tell us when one of you needs purrs!
Oh, Congratulations on being a DDP today!
Love & hugs & PURRRRSSSSSS!
