Triple Bah

Today was going really well. The Annoying One was dragged to the V-E-T. His eye got all swollen like mine did but the doc just said he had an eye infection. I think that's the universe's way of telling him to leave me the heck alone. Anywho, what really made my day was that he got not just one but two shots! That should make it a perfect day, right?

Well, while the Mom was there, she started talking to one of the other V-E-Ts. This one is a little younger than Dr. Country Bob (my new nickname for him) and while isn't as friendly, seems to know his stuff. The Mom got the impression that Dr. Countrybob thought that she should just let "nature run its course" since I'm "older than dirt." Bah. Thankfully, the Mom is a bit more proactive than that. She told me that she wants to know what's going on with me. Well, I do too.

Anyways, Dr. Blue Eyes (as the Mom calls him) said that she should bring me in and they'll check me out. OK...what does that mean? Basically, if I'm healthy enough, I'm going under anesthesia and they are going to find out if it's really an abscessed tooth or if it's something worse. "Exploratory surgery" is how she put it. Part of me really wants to poop on the Mom's pillow for doing this to me, but another part of me realizes that it's better to know. Bah. No matter what happens, at least they'll know what's wrong with me.

So, tomorrow I'm going in. The Mom asks that you send lots of prayers my way in the hopes that it's nothing serious.

Oh gosh, sugery isn't fun, but sometimes you've gotta do it. We're glad your Mom is more proactive and got Dr. Blue Eyes to look at you. I added a note to the Pet Prayer and Praise blog and to the Cat Blogosphere blog for you so you'll get lots of purrs coming your way. We'll be sending lots of purrs from us too.

There's nothing wrong with being grumpy or older than dirt. Good for your Mom to arch her back and get a second opinion. Mom's been to vets that treat us like livestock and vets that treat only cats and charge too much. My purrfured vet is somewhere in the middle. So, my grumpy, grumbly purrs and purrayers are all yours. Be well!

Emma's Kat said...

We will be thinking of you and saying a purrayer tomorrow that they find out what is causing your little face to be swollen! Take care Ayla!

Max said...

Wowie. I got paws crossed that it doesn't hurt too much and all they find is something like a cavity or a piece of Stinky Goodness that got wedge under a tooth funny or a bug that you were saving in your cheek to eat later that maybe bit you cause it was ticked off.

Best wishes, Ayla!

Riley & Tiki said...

Ayla, I hope everything is OK!

Radcliff, Allie, Luna & Ozzie said...

Ayla, if you ever get the chance, put a nice chomp on Dr Country Bob, OK? At least, pee on his shoe or something. Not nice at all for him to say that.

Sending healing purrss from all of us.
