Favorite Nap Spot: Any pillow, soft blankie or kittycube
Favorite Food: ANYTHING!!
Skills: he is a very good climber, despite the CH
Arrival Story: Flurry was removed from a home based on failure to care for the animals. He came into the shelter pretty sick and was in isolation for a bit. The COO of the shelter asked if we would be interested in having him in our home. They didn't think he would be a good adoption to someone unfamiliar.
Bio: Flurry has cerebellar hypoplasia, a neuro disorder. He eats, drinks and uses the litterbox, but does so in a slightly different manner.
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a flurry : "a brief period of commotion or excitement ". We thought this suited him nicely! He is smart, attentive, playful...everything you'd want in a cat. He just moves differently. He comes when he is called, loves up his humans, LOVES Millie, toys and anything edible! He is a kneader and seems to be partial to soft microfleece blankets.
Well, first of all, thank you, Catster, for choosing my diary as a pick!
It is, super cool!
I was in Mommy's office, waiting to be seen by the doc to have my bandages changed when she told me I was a DDP!
My first thought was "OMC! I hope the latest entries are at least somewhat fun to read."
Then, I collected myself and hobbled over to the canned food and ate like a champ!
I don't want to appear TOO excited!
I have to say that this is a thrill for me . Finding my true family made me feel like a lottery winner, having so many friends on Catster feels like a million bucks, being named a DDP is the cherry on top of this wonderful sundae!!!
Paws up to my sister (and best groomer), Millie! She's COTD!!
It looks like we're having salmon tonight!! Woo Hoo!
Well, ONE of my brothers was a bit too aggressive and they bit me, according to the docs.
I had 2 puncture wounds on my leg, which they cleaned very nicely and wrapped, so I have a bandaged leg that looks like its broken.
I go back on Thursday for a bandage change and they will teach Mommy how to care for it so I don't have to keep going back. That's good because I HATE being there. I get scared and don't like the noise.
I was given pain medicine, started on an antibiotic and will finish the last of my anti-inflammatory.
If I could blush, I would have because one of the vet techs said I was WAY TOO CUTE and much nicer and better behaved than her CH kitty!
Mommy opened the cage and I wrapped my paws around her neck and held tight! I am home, had my meds, ate my dinner very well and am now relaxing.
I was walking fine on late Saturday night/Sunday morning. Mommy and Daddy came home Sunday evening from M's work and she noticed I was favoring my left hind leg. She tried touching it and I cried. Mom says it was swollen. So she called the ER doc and brought me back to work where they took my temp, examined me and I got x-rays taken. I HATED that! It was terrible being upside down, even though Mommy was holding me. I don't like meing turned around or even held sideways, so lying on my back was not good for me at all.
The side x-rays were okay to do since I was getting fussed over during.
The x-rays were 'perfect' as the 2 docs said. They gave me a needle of metacam and sub-q fluids because my temp spiked after the x-rays. The docs said it was probably from the stress of it all.
I rested yesterday, which was good because Mommy says some kitties don't know when to take it easy. I ate and drank, just taking it easy. Its been REALLY hot here (in the 90's) and most of us have been going light on the food intake anyway.
Last night, after Mommy got home from the Phillies game, she came in to see me (the docs had asked M to keep me confined to a small area for better resting) and thought my leg looked more swollen. So, she called the ICU at midnight and told them I had a fever of 104.9 and that my leg seemed bigger.
I laid on a cool gel pack last night, after M gave me fluids with a syringe (because she and the vet techs/nurses thought I would do better NOT getting stressed out completely by going back there last night). I ate a can of food and about 1/2 cup dry food, drank and was and still am using the litterbox like a champ.
I a going back to the doctors this morning where one of our favorite docs will take care of me. Yah! They suspect that it is a soft tissue injury since nothing is showing up on the x-ray and since I move so differently, I could have hurt it 'running' through the house or even jumping/sliding off the sofa or loveseat.
Mommy says she is worried about me because I cry when she touches my paw.
I am going to do everything the doctor tells so I can feel better really fast!
