Grey is home with his Mom & Dad. They had to get a baby bean playpen for him to stay in because it's softer than a cage or a kennel. He still doesn't have the use of his back legs. His Mom & Dad have to set him in his litter box so he can use it, then they have to clean him up. The V-E-T said that dissolving the clot would take 7-10 days, and this is the 7th day so efurrybody, PLEASE KEEP SENDING PURRS & PRAYERS TO GREY!!!!!
He has to take 8 pills and luckily, his Mom is able to hide them in his food and he is eating them just fine, so they must not be gross tasting. He is eating and drinking. His Mom is very worried about having to give him an enema if he doesn't poo, so let's hope that he feels the urge to do that on his own....
In other noos, Sally hissed and growled at the V-E-T and tried to be her most furrocious self. I was totally UNHAPPY to hear that she also has FORLs. Feline Odontoclastic Resorptive Lesions. I SO did not need to hear that. If any of you haven't read about Dorfington Fish Stanley's ordeal with FORLs yet, it's quite the story. Luckily, Sally's jaws didn't chatter while she was under anesthesia, so they aren't the excruciatingly painful ones, yet. We'll see how her bloodwork looks tomorrow, and decide how we want to proceed. This may explain her howling and also rubbing her face against anything and everything. I always thought she was just marking the wall corners and the furniture, but maybe she is trying to soothe her painful teeth. Don't you wish they could speak to us?????
As for Smokey, his x-ray shows a teeny bit of honeycombing in his lungs, which might be asthma, but his heart looks abnormal. And since both V-E-Ts heard his heart murmur loud and clear, the heart worries me. Apparently a murmur isn't too big a deal, but an abnormal shaped heart is. We might opt for a sonogram to see what's up with it. We're going to see what his bloodwork shows also.
So, yes, the saga of the special needs kitties here at the Forty Paws continues. Just another day in the life...
We're going to need to raffle off a kitty Ham-mick for the Forty Paws.
