Kitty ER


Hi all. Well today was more eventfull then I thought it would be lol. My husbund went outside to mow the lawn and discovered that our kitty Felix had a large round fleshy spot below the side of his neck. Not so nice to look at so I proceeded to call my vet who told me to go somewhere else..nice huh. Anyway, after calling three places I was told I could bring him into a vet not so close to me for critical care. Now we all know they charge and arm and a leg for these places but what could I do. So we all showered and left with him wrapped in a blankie looking like a baby lol. He is a very easy going cat and he was not so happy in the car but didn't mind the vets office at all lol. The vet said it looked like a ruptured cyst. None of us seen a cyst and would of taken him in if we did. So he is inside now and on antibiotics and a wound cleaner and creme. I am not looking forward to doing this as I know I will get growled at lol. He is suppose to be on all this for a couple weeks and I need to take him into our vets office for a follow up after the two weeks. Sigh, almost two hundred dollars later we walked out and headed to Wendy's for some chicken nuggets to hide his first pill in lol. He took it happily and now he is resting in the chair next to me sleeping. There was some problems with my other cat as he was not in the mood to be bothered but we will get through it as long as he gets better. Oh ya and it is suppose to take like two months to heal completely..fun wow.

So there went the Halloween decorating etc lol. I am glad it is over and done with and we know he is alright. The picture I posted is of Felix and D. It is an old one but one of my favorites. Ok well I'm gonna go read some blogs and relax some. Take care :)

Good thinking on the chicken nuggets to hide the pill in. We had one of our cats to show up with a flesh wound like she had been punctured. We do not know how it happened. Anyway, scared us. I hate how vet expenses are high along with everything else. We deal with it b/c we have to get our fur babies all fixed up.

I love your blog page!! You did a wonderful job on it. I couldnt do all that on mine. I am sorry to hear about your cat. I had that happen once to one of my cats. I know it can be hard to put medicine on them or to give them pills. They can be quite fiesty. Good luck and i hope he gets better soon....HUgs, Christine Struggling with my life
