Monday Morning Stuff--Update

I never did hear back from the vet the other day.  However, when I got home from work last night about 9:30, I saw Oscar was leaving a trail of blood  :(   I e-mailed the vet and she told me to bring him in before I came into work today.  She saw him right away this morning and thinks he may have a ruptured abscess in his anal glands.  My poor little guy.  The vet says she will give him antibiotics and keep me posted.  She also thinks I should be able to bring him home today after my work shift.  Keep my orange boy in your thoughts! 
 
 Hello felines and their human servants,  'Tis me.  The Oscar kitty here to quickly relate what has been going on in our corner of the world.  I have been napping lots.  Mom is still worried about me and frets a fair bit.  She called the vet again today and is waiting for a phone call back.
We have had a lot of rain.  Mom took this photo when she had to throw out the trash in the evening.  She turned the flash on--the rain looks like little stars!
Mom had her umbrella with her on her walk to work but she still got soaked through!   Her top was still damp more than three hours later!  
 Hello--it's Winston and Emily here.  This photo of us demonstrates Emily showing us her special kitty kung-fu move called the paws of doom!  Are you folks and felines scarified of Emily yet?  Tee hee.  Neither was Winston!  Anyway, more stuff that happened in the last bit.  Mom and some of her family came had a nice visit not too long ago.  They went to one of their favorite breakfast spots and enjoyed some food and conversation!

 Mom has been trying to do a bit of shopping for Christmas since late August.  She came across this pottery mug and was going to put it in her gift drawer.  Guess what?  Somehow that mug ended up on her counter next to her tea tin.  Oh Mom, what are we going to do with you?   That mug was for Christmas NOT your tea time!

We will close with this photo of Emily supervising Mom and the kitchen sink!  We boys are trying to make sure Emily's supervisory skills fit exacting feline standards.  Don't let Mom get away with any slacking off,  Emily!
Take good care all!

  1. Hi everyone, it's good to see you all. We've been somewhat (or a lot) out of touch. Continued purrs to your Oscar. Our human would have kept that pottery mug, too. :-)

    1. Thank you for your purrs, Fuzzy Tales. We haven't heard back from the vet yet. Hopefully, that means whatever it is, it's nothing serious! Our mom loves that mug. If she keeps this up, though, she will have to buy more Christmas type presents!

  4. Oscar, we hope the vet has good news for both you and your Mama! Keep us posted sweetie. Emily, you are a doll...and Winston, well you know our Mama thinks you can do no wrong!

    P.S. LP doesn't enjoy shopping so the only time she shops throughout the year is to find a few treasures here and there as Christmas gifts...but then she ends up buying all kinds of things for herself as well... that she never even knew she needed!! :p

  6. Oscar, we hope the vet calls with good news, my friend. And don't underestimate that Emily; she's just toying with you now, but she'll bring out her big clobber if you're not careful!

    1. Winston thinks because he is the boy that Emily doesn't have any "big clobbers" in her! Poor little guy is in for a surprise :)

    1. Thank you, Eileen, for your purrs. I could see a happy difference in Oscar when I brought him home last night.
      Little Miss Emily is a handful, for sure, but she has some sweetness to her, too.
      Sending purrs to you and yours as well =)

    1. Hello mewomewomans,
      I was able to pick up Oscar after work on Tuesday. They cleaned him up. Gave him some cerenia (for nausea) and an antibiotic. He goes in for another shot of the antibioitc next week. He seemed so much happier and and energetic than he has been the past week. We thought the lethargy etc was from the thyroid issues....that hasn't gone away but it was the ruptured abscess that was making my poor boy feel so poorly. He thanks you for your kind concern. It does my heart good to see him back to his old self!
