Yesterday was my birthday! I had a lot of friends congratulate me, which was really nice. On Monday evening this coming week we will have a birthday party for me, if my vet says it is okay. I think I am doing just fine.
I apologize for not have been Dogstering in a few weeks. The whole furmily has been caught up in various furry issues again.
For several months I have been having problems with my stinky glands. To me it felt funny and I kept licking my tuchis constantly...which drove Mama nuts. She had to take me three times to the vet to do something about that. Not a pleasant thing, let me tell you!
The last time really hurt baaaaadly, so Mama and the vet decided that it would be best for me to have those stinky glands removed, since they acted up constantly.
So I had surgery. I had no clue what they were going to do. Mama dropped me off and walked me to the "pre-surgery waiting cage", gave me one of my blankies and then left.
Before I knew it,I got some medication and wooooozed off into the Land of Milkbones and Hotdogs. When I woke up my tush hurt but soon Mama was back to take me home.
I have been recovering for two weeks now. Mama keeps me wrapped up like a diaper dog, so I cannot pull all the stitches out. They are supposed to be removed on Monday. I am wearing my special satellite dish, but have learned to snap it off by brushing against furniture. Yeah, I am SMART!
After three days, I managed to get the stitches out on one of the surgery wounds. Mama said it looked A-w-f-u-l, because it left a deep, gaping hole. Jeez, I couldn't see that!
All the meds, great strong painkiller, etc. certainly helped me to feel okay, but the healing slowed down.
So, on Monday, when the stitches come out on the other side, we will go home and then have a birthday party for me. YAY! I do not want to party looking like the diaper dog on all photos!!!
Mama has been worried to pieces the whole time. Besides me recovering, Dudel returning to his old self after having been shot with a tiny bullet, the other kittehs having something weird going on...
Mama never gets a break.
Now she is planning my b-day party. I love my Mama!
