My Thung ith Thut

Yep, that is what it is. And if I could speak, that is what I would have said. My thung ith thut! Translated...."My Tongue is Cut"

I wasn't eating like I normally do on Sunday and Monday, so Mom called the vet and they took me in on Tuesday morning. I wasn't throwing up or anything else, but I wasn't myself and seemed interested in food but then couldn't eat. Mom thought maybe I had a toothache.

Mom dropped me off at the vet and then called back to see what they had found. The doctor talked to Mom and said that they had given me some fluids and that she found a large laceration on my tongue and that was probably the reason I was not eating. She sent me home with meds for pain and told Mom to water down my wet food or give it to me by syringe if I won't eat it on my own.

Since taking the pain meds, I am eating on my own. No crunchies though, they are still too painful. Mom doesn't know what happened. Doc said I could have bitten my own tongue or cut it licking something sharp, like a cat food can lid or empty can. Mom is not sure how it happened. I am not usually an object chew-er so it is unlikely that I would put something strange in my mouth.

Sorry we have not been around much lately. Mom is still going a little crazy because of our Grammy. She did get to go to a nursing home/rehab center last Thursday and Mom has been going to see her and take her things that she needs. Gram has good days and bad days. Mom is wiped out from everything. So stressful.

Hope to see you guys soon. Skittles will be by to give her birthday thank yous and tell the snowball story and Skylar might be in to tell you about Aunt Anita's upcoming short stay.

Happy Thrpring!

I sure hope that your tongue heals real soon, and that you can enjoy your crunchies again. My family and I send our love to your grammy. Please keep us posted about how she is doing in the rehabilitation center.

Ow! Ow! Ow! I hate thinking about anything that would make it hard to eat. I've heard that mouth wounds heal pretty fast, though, so I hope you're chowing down normally soon, Rusty. Hang in there.

Poor you, that sure has to hurt! Mom always worries about me cutting my tongue cause I do love to lick everything that has can kitty food on it. we hope you feel better and better everyday Rusty..

We understand how your Mom is stressed my Mom went through that with her Mom for 4 years and now that her Mom passed away last month Mom doesn't have to worry so about her Mom, she just misses her. Tell your Mom to take it easy and do something for herself.

Purrs to your Mom and grandma...sending our love and hugs. We miss you all, but we know how life makes it hard sometimes to be here..we are thinking of you all...

Oh buddy--that makes me cringe! I hope it's healing up fast! We're purring for your mom, it's a huge challenge when things like this happen, so exhausting and worrisome. Give her lots of extra head-bonks to cheer her up!

Purrs for your Mom and Grammy, too.
