My Vet visit

Well my friends I finally got my stitches taken out on Tuesday. I am all healed now, but now I have peach fuzz on my belly...I just want to know when will my pretty long fur grow back in...

Dr. Kathy told Mom I look good and I am doing good too....the specialists doesn't feel there is any need for further treatment...hooray!!! but Mom needs to check my lymph node on the inside of my back left leg, she showed Mom how to check me...MOL they had me on my side and feeling me all over..I was not happy.

Then Mom questions her about the changes of this coming back and she said that it could come back that is why she has to keep checking me, but more than likely the my prognoses is good....

Mom also wanted to know why the fur above my eyes is very thin and I am getting bald now...Dr. Kathy said that it could be from me being stressed, reaction to something she isn't sure, so she told Mom to watch and see if it gets worse, if it does she has to take me back to see Dr. Kathy and she will take a scrapping of my skin and see what is going on....what is next Mom and I ask!!!

Well next is since Mom took me to the Vet I have been hiding under Moms Grandmas hutch all day, she has to get me out for dinner, in the morning I eat and then ask to go outside, stay out till Mom has to leave, she lets me in and then I go right back under the hutch....I am not hanging out in my bed at the front window like I normally do, and I am not sleeping in Moms room either...If it continues Mom is going to call Dr. Kathy...this is not normal for me, yes I like hanging out by myself, but hiding is not like me.

Mom thinks there is something going on with my skin and she needs to get me on medication, so maybe she will have to take me back in next week....MOL

Thank you all of my friends for all of the comments, gifts and encouraging words these last few weeks, Mom hasn't felt like being on the computer much and we are behind so we apologize to you all...she hopes she will get to them now...if we miss anyone know that we love you all, thank you for your support and love....

Xena; goodness, it could be the meds you were taking caused a skin reaction, purrhaps even the fashion senseless collar you were forced to wear could have caused a reaction...and being stressed, you may have over groomed your face, even a family member could have over groomer you face if you allow them to do so.....we hope you dont have to go back to the vet and are happy your prognosis was good !! hugs from dai$y and the boys !

Maybe it's just stress that is making yous hide. I's know when I's stressed I's hide & have lost some furrrs before. I's so glad yous doing well & your stitchies are out. It will take a few months for your tummy hair to fully grow back. We's will keep purrring & praying for yous & hopefully now that your stitchies are out maybe yous can relax a wittle & not stress as much.

I'm voting on stress. I lose fuzz when I get stressed. I have this one spot on my back... mommy always knows when I'm stressed cause I start over licking it and the fur gets really thin. Stress is hard on a lady. Take a day or two off, lay in the sun, warm up the peach fuzz on your bell, and eat LOTS Of nom noms your mommy wouldn't normally let you have! That's my advice! Nom noms solve everything!

Come on out from under the hutch, Xena, and let your mom know you're okay - and that you don't need to go back to the vet place.

The hair over my eyes (usually it's just one eye) gets very thin - almost bald - after I've been stressed. It happened after our move to our new home last year and has happened once or twice since then. It always grows back pretty quickly. I hope yours does, too, Xena.
