the vet felt that there was alot going on for him besides his chronic mouth problems now. he was 18 almost 19 yrs old. both of us were quite surprised that pops managed to do as well as he had for the last 3 years, colleen remembered when i called her about these guys and she first met "the plague cats"...just boo left and she is 15 now too. pops always looked like crap, but looks means little about life enjoyment and gosh that cat loved all of us to bits. as i sat with him in my arms waiting for the sedation to take hold, i noticed that this was one of the few times he actually had a full coat of fur again. colleen said, "you must have given him a bath recently, this is the cleanest i have ever seen him"...nooo...he gave himself a bath earlier in the week when he fell in the tub with me. i told him time and time again that de-clawed cats should not hang out on the side of wet and slippery full bathtubs...he never did listen to me all that well.
i love you pops, drooling face and everything, the kitchen counters and my bath times will never be the same.
panda came home from the vets, he had another steriod injection, his mouth is not too bad right now. thank god from small favors.
trish is still not great but i didn't want to panic and rush her. colleen said she will be available all week on her lunch breaks if i decide that trish is ready to go.
new incoming, don't know his name. will update on him after he arrives. this has been a brutal last few days.
