Hi Everycat! This is Hope and I got permission from Shilgiah to blog today. It's been a week now since the big ordeal and I'm much better. In checking out the pictures, I decided to leave out the really gross ones. This first picture was taken when I first got home from the vet last weekend and had the awful torture cone around my neck! I was not happy...not one bit.
The stupid plastic head cone was heavier than it looked because I couldn't hold my head up right when I tried to walk. So, I had to back up everywhere in order not to scare myself silly.
Below is a picture of the study that mom converted into a recuperation room. If you look carefully, you can see me with the torture head dress on. In all fairness, mom took it off for short periods of time that first night in order for me to eat a little and do my business in my litter box. But if I begin to lick at the abscess she put it right back on. But, I only had to wear the awful plastic cone for two days. Then, she put it back on me when she had give me a pill because I would spit it out and run! Then she would stick the plastic cone on and stuff the pill down my throat!
I was able to scratch her hands up pretty good during pill time for most of the week. Finally, on Friday mom came home with something Shilgiah told me was "not kosher" but that mom said might prevent her hands from being assaulted further.
So, anyway mom cut my evening pill into quarters and opened the little jar and put a little of the contents on a spoon and stuck a pill chip in the squishy-heavenly-smelling-stuff-on-the-spoon! It is the Yummiest Stuff I ever tasted and in no time flat, the four pill chips magically were gone and I even got an extra spoonful or three! I have to continue the pills until Tuesday evening. Mom, you'd better buy some more jars of that yummy stuff. I don't want to run out. Can you guess what that stuff is, my friends?
It's HAM! Baby Food HAM! Mom remembered reading that many of the blogging kitties liked HAM but since we're Jewish she had never thought to get any for Tommy or Shilgiah. It took my hand shredding for her to get the stuff. Mom even let Tommy and Shilgiah have a taste. Forget the kosher bit mom we all want HAM in the morning, HAM in the evening and HAM for snacks all the time!!!
