mr broken-jaw arrives tonight...his surgery went well and to help save on the $1500/day hospitalization fee, nicole is bringing him around 10 pm tonight. he has had his first tube feeds and is wearing a patch which is good for 3 days of pain control. he might as well recover here, we can manage fresh post ops, been there, done that, it just means a little less sleep. but frankly the fundraiser did NOT make quite enough to clear all the vet bills plus his surgery and 3 days of hospitalization (ooops, i added wrong.)
i think nicole said she is naming him "ralphie" so welcome St. Ralph and i hope we find you a great home really soon!!!
ellie is so sore tonight and she is in a bad mood. poor pig. i told her the nice weather is coming back by the weekend and she told me to get the "F" out of her way.
nicole was here this afternoon while i was at work so she got to watch clyde being a dork...he was walking on the counters and knocking the cat boxes over and generally being a royal mess making pain.
sunrise was looking crappy earlier in the week, but i think he looks much better tonight so i hope it lasts. he is such a sweet cat. the other americats are doing quite well, of course it is probably bad luck to actually say that. nothing like being surrounded and mobbed by a bunch of happy to see you cats...sunrise waits for you to go and say hello to him but the others just bring it all to you.
dixie has decided that i am to feed her at least four times a day. she stands on my bed and caterwauls at me til i go and get her more canned food. i get it for her but she still hates my guts, she thinks i am evil and stupid even if i do give her whatever she asks for. sigh, she will never like me, she doesn't like me any more today than she did 6 years ago...oh well...i quite like her and i hope it irritates her that i don't hate her back.
tiger lily is staring at me as we speak and i know what she is thinking too...do i look like a freaking waitress?
she is so old, i guess i better go feed her again too.
