Iggy Update

Oh...right.  Iggy.  That's me!


This Iggy name is still new to me but it looks like it's sticking so I better get used to it.

Please forgive my disheveled appearance.  The gunk Mommy is putting in my eye is very greasy and it makes the whole left side of my face look wet.

I am doing much better and eating like I haven't had food in awhile.  The other day Mommy got all leaky-eyed and told me to PLEASE eat.  She looked so sad and frustrated that I immediately hopped down off the bed and ate...and I ate a LOT.  I figured I had put her through too much and that crying just had to stop.  The problem was, she kept crying.  She was smiling while she cried though so I guess it was different.

I was supposed to go to the vet today, but because of my new found love of food, Mommy postponed the appointment until Monday.  She is REALLY worried about my eye, but she wants the antibiotic cream to be finished by the time she brings me to see the doctor.

I don't know if you can see this, but if you look at my left eye, the pupil is very cloudy.



I don't cringe as much when she puts in the antibiotic cream, so maybe that means my eye is improving.  We'll find out on Monday.  Also, we're hoping that I have gained a little bit of weight since last Sunday.  I was a very low 3.36 kilos (7.41 pounds), and since I have a big frame, the doctor said I was very underweight.  

Thank you all for your purrs in the last few days!

Iggy
xoxo

Yay, you ate! Keep it up, Iggy. Better your new mom should cry from happiness and relief than worry and stress.

Yes, we see that your left eye is cloudy and we're sending lots of purrs for your v-e-t visit on Monday. Maybe you could get a B12 shot, as a boost? Your mom could ask about it.

Smooches from us!

We can fully understand why your Mommy cried...first from worry then from relief. And we like that order. :)
Keep eating, Iggy. You need to put on quite a bit of weight!
As for your cloudy eye, we think it may have been a wound caused by a scratch, perhaps? Hopefully the meds will help it heal. :)

Good job Iggy.....keep eating buddy. And tell your mom not to worry too much about the cloudiness - our Mo has a scar on his one eye from an infection that doesn't bother him at all. :)
