Puffy Update: He's home.

After Mom an' Grandma dropped Puffy off at the v-e-t, he was prepped for surgery. The v-e-t put in a drain to help the remainder of the infection to leave through the evacuated abcesses an' while he was under general anesthesia, she even cleaned his teeth. He was proclaimed to have barely elevated kidney levels, an' Mom thinks that an' the slight dehydration might be due to the fact that he wasn't able to climb to his usual drinkin' spot on the side table.

The v-e-t gave Puffy some medication to take for pain/inflammation an' some pills (with Pill Pockets) to take as antibiotics to heal the infection. He purred the whole time that he was awake an' didn't resume the "Meezer YOWL" until Mom loaded him into Grandma's SUV for the ride home. Puffy said "Weee-owwwmmmmhhh" the whole way home an' frustrated Mom an' Grandma so much that they joined him in his siren song for home.

Mom took a couple of kinda gross photos of Puffy's injuries in case you're curious ... (Biggify if you dare).





The Feline Americans an' I (as well as Mom, of course) wanna thank efurryone for the pawsitive healing energy that was flowin' toward us today. Mom is sure that this story wouldn't be havin' such a happy outcome without all of you! Thank you, Cat Blogosphere!

Poor Cocoa Puff! The firstest cat used to get abscesesses frum fightin wif da mean kitty next door. He had dat kinda surgery at least twice.

Gotta question, tho. How do you KNOW it was Charmee what bited Puff? Wif so many feline americats, it's not good to jump to conclusions.

Nina an I play bite eachofur but nobody actyoually gets hurted, efun when she cries out.
Purrs to alla yous,
Victor
PS we'd still like yur mom to come teach our boy's English class.
