It has been a really rough few days!
If you missed my last post, I shared that our sweet cat Mr. Toes was shot with a pellet gun by someone. We thought he was doing okay and didn't have any internal injuries. Monday he went back to the Vet and they said he was running a fever. They kept him and gave him iv fluids and pain meds. Today they were able to give him an ultrasound and thought there was some damage so called us and discussed surgery. We agreed and they went in. They found the pellet had pierced the small intestine in two places, had bruised his stomach and he had peritonitis. They removed the damaged intestine and cleaned out the infection. He will be in the clinic for several more days while they give him antibiotics and continue to monitor his condition.
Mr Toes is such a sweet cat and has a wonderful fun personality.
We are praying for the best!
He is not out of the woods yet, but he is young and strong and we believe he has a strong will to survive! After all he made it home after being shot.
So Mr ALC, Charlie Kitty and myself all thank you for your prayers and good healing thoughts.
It's amazing how much we love our furry babies!
Our home feels different without him here.
I'll try to get back to my regular blogging soon, my head and heart have not been up to it. Those who I'm mailing things to, I promise I'll get them out soon.
And to make us all smile....here are some photos of a different kind of 'cat'
