Update On Mr Toes

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'
Tiger has started Toddler Gymnastics
Checking out the musical choices
Playing Drums...has kept Tiger a busy boy! 
I hope to visit him this weekend!

Wishing You JOY,
Linda

Oh my gosh, this just makes me sick. People are evil. I'm so upset. I will certainly pray for Mr. Toes. Pooh will pray too. Please keep us posted.

Linda, I am so sorry about Mr. Toes...it amazes me how cruel people can be, especially to defenseless animals. Hope he makes a full recovery.
So...you have a little drummer...cute!

20 North Ora said...

That is just unconceivable to me that anyone would do something like that. So glad he's doing well and hope he's home soon.

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Oh poor kitty. I hope he feels better soon. We have a cat that could be his twin.

Nellie said...

Oh dear, Linda! I must have missed a post! That is disturbing news about Mr. Toes!:-( I am certainly sending along my best for a good recovery for him. I just cannot understand why anyone would want to do something like that! Hugs, Nellie

Positive thoughts going your way Linda...

Deb said...

Oh my goodness, Linda, you know I am going to pray and send out good thoughts for your Mr. Toes. I hope that they were able to do all that needs to be done and now he can heal. The poor little thing. Damn those people who do awful things to animals. What is wrong with them? Sending hugs, Deb.

Barbara F. said...

Oh Linda, this has turned into a nightmare. I'd report it to local authorities. This was an act of animal cruelty. They need to at least pay your vet bills. Tiger is growing in leaps and bounds. xo

AllyJo said...

Dear Miss Linda...I am praying for Mr. Toes. Love, Pooh in Tampa.

Julie said...

Dear Linda - I am praying for your baby's recovery. J

Shelia said...

Oh, Linda, your poor little kitty! I'm praying for little Mr. Toes and praying he'll pull through and be just fine. Take care and I love seeing little Tiger.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sarah Lillian said...

I have two of my own and cannot imagine the stress and pain you are going through. So sorry to hear that happened to him. People like that make me sick and I can only hope that karma will catch up that asshole soon. I'll keep him in my thoughts. Please keep us updated!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Poor little guy...did you catch the perps who shot him? I hope he gets better soon. Tiger is a busy young lad!

xo,
RJ

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Poor baby! In your last post I thought for sure he was on his way to recovery, I hope he is now Linda. I get so angry thinking about this, it just makes no sense.

Susan said...

Awwwww, Linda. That's NOT GOOD. I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. Toes. I hope he can recover. But oh, God, I think of the MONEY for the vet. That's what kills me every time I have to bring Honey Cat. (Just did last week, too. Bladder infection.)

Oh, good luck, dear Linda. I'll bet Mr. Toes will rally and be as good as new. Susan

Katnip Lounge said...

I'm sending positive vibes for Mr. Toes...thank goodness you caught the infection early. The kitties will purr their best. Give him some love from me when you see him next.

Susan said...

I'm so sorry that he took a turn...now I'm really mad at the inconsiderate jerk that shot him. Sending love and prayers he will be home soon in your loving arms.
BTW--Tiger is too cute!! XOXO

Pooh is sitting in my lap and we are both so upset for you all. I'm terrified to let him out of the house now.

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Oh Linda,
I'm so sorry to read about Mr. Toes... some people are just evil..
I'll pray that he will mend quickly and be home sooner than expected...
Take care.
Warmly,
deb

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

So very sorry to hear about Mr. Toes. I do know what a difficult time you are going through and know that empty feeling you have with him at the vets. ANY idea who would do such a thing?
On the flip - your little tiger is adorable and active!! Have fun keeping up with him.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this, who would hurt a cat? These are very sick people. Oh, my best to your baby...Keep us posted!

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Oh No! I am so sorry! I will keep poor Mr.Toes in my prayers. Bless his heart, he should not have to be going through this. I am so glad he has you and your family!

Jacquelineand.... said...

Poor Mr. Toes, and poor you! Sending warm and healing thoughts his way.

People can be just plain nasty...I'm sorry it's hit so close to home.

joanne said...

Oh Linda, I've been out of touch and didn't know about Mr. Toes. That is just horrible, who would do such a thing to a poor little kitty? I hope he will be better soon, like you said he's a fighter, thank Goodness for that!

sissie said...

Oh Linda this just makes me sick to my stomach that anyone could harm such a sweet little animal.

I pray that Mr. Toes will be okay.
Hang in there Sweetie.

hugs
Sissie

Mary Clark said...

Poor Mr. Toes, that should not have happened! Love him bunches and hope he is fine really soon. Mary

The White Pear Tree said...

Poor Mr. Toes! Whoever did this to him is so cruel!! I hope you find them and send them the bill! He's such a cute kitty. Big hugs to you and Mr. Toes. Keep us posted.

Hartwood Roses said...

I'm so sorry about this, Linda. (I totally missed your original mention.) I know how much you love your kitties, and I am praying for both of you as sweet Mr. Toes recovers. Sending healing hugs.

Elaine said...

Get well soon, Mr Toes. Sending healing thoughts and prayers his way. Your Tiger is a sweetie!

Claudia said...

Oh no! I'm just reading about this terrible injury to your sweet cat. My goodness, who could do that to an innocent animal?

I'm sending prayers and healing thoughts to your beloved Mr. Toes.

Chatty Crone said...

Oh my goodness Linda I am so sorry about Mr. Toes. I hope that the vet is giving you a good deal. Surgery and all that must be very expensive. I sure hope he pulls through it. That is a lot for any little kitten to handle. I still don't understand how anyone can hurt a cat, dog, or child. I'll be saying a little prayer for him. Tiger is adorable as usual.

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! I hope today has brought some good news about Mr. Toes!
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Viki said...

So sad - Hope he gets better soon.

Ann said...

prayers and hugs for Mr Toes. Hope he's better soon. Poor guy.

Melanie said...

Oh, poor Mr. Toes! I am such a cat lover and this just breaks my heart. I will keep Mr. Toes in my prayers that he heals just fine and is back home soon.

Tiger is your grandson, right? Is that his real name?

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

How awful that somebody shot your Mr. Toes! I hope he makes a full recovery and is back in your home soon.

Tiger is growing up so fast! It's so much fun to be part of their lives, even if they pass the stomach flu to their grannies. :@

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Oh, I know you're hurting right now!!! Mr. Toes will be back at home with you soon...I'm praying for his recovery!!! Our pets have such a special place in our hearts!

Old Fashioned Gal said...

Oh no! I am just now seeing this! Poor Mr. Toes! What a beautiful little tuxedo kitty! How horrible for someone to do that to a pet. It makes me sad for people that they have nothing better to do then harm a kitty. I hope he is on a road to a speedy recovery! I'm sure you're looking forward to many cuddles and kisses from him! Take care Linda!
P.S. No luck on the cardinal front so far. I will definitely keep a lookin'!
