We're back! Actually, Mommy and I are back. Deli never left.
I figured Mommy wasn't stressed enough so on Wednesday, when she had to go to a doctor's appointment to confirm she was okay for surgery, I strained to pee and just squirted out a small amount when I was in the litter box. Of course she brought me to the Vet right away and he said I had an irritated bladder lining and he was going to try to get a urine sample. Unfortunately, the irritated bladder meant that whenever I had to pee, it was so uncomfortable that I had to get it out as quickly as possible so they put me in a cage without a litter box so my bladder would fill up! I wouldn't put up with that and just peed in the cage! They tried all day. They said my belly was too 'fat' to palpate and my bladder wasn't filling up so they had to go in with a needle. Anyway, Mommy was a wreck but she trusts this vet to take care of me so she went to the hospital for her surgery and had the Ball Guy pick me up on Thursday. They shaved my belly so you can see my pink tummy!
I'm fine now (after Prednisone) and Auntie Stephie bought us a cool water fountain so I'd drink more. I'm also supposed to have more wet food which is not so bad (although I've gone through a few I refuse to eat) but I should be fine.
Mommy's home! It is good news for Deli and I (although Deli hardly noticed she was gone - she was all over the Ball Guy). Mommy's very sore and she doesn't move as much as she used to. She was sleeping and I jumped up on her belly and she screamed! I don't know why she's so sensitive. She keeps saying the operation was successful but I don't see how. She just lies around and asks The Ball Guy for stuff (like he doesn't have enough to do?!). When Deli got back from getting fixed, she was running around within an hour.
We are so heartbroken to hear about our good buddy Cal. He was a really special dude. As short as his time was, we think his family was lucky he was in their lives. Cal was the coolest in the land and we will miss him and hope his family is okay.
I'm happy to be back and Mommy's got a few weeks off to catch up on stuff so hopefully she can get her lazy butt off the sofa and help us blog!
