Dearest Furr Friends on Internets,
Lil Bear: Earlier Saturday Afternoon about 4pm, Mom waz getting ready to do a lates Good Friday/Easter Post when Uncle Mike burst into the room.
Mom: Uncle Mike had been working on the kitchen sink and going back and forth to the garage thru the back door. Since Uncle Mike's house sits on a corner, the back door is actually on the left side of the house and opens onto the covered patio that connects the garage to the house. Uncle Mike had let Toby out thru the front door to get daily exercise. Uncle Mike and I always let Toby out the front door for a good run, cause he always jumps out the door onto the concrete porch, scurries around the side of house thru the covered patio and over to the same spot to eat grass in the backyard. But I didn't know Toby had been out until Mike came into the computer room.
Lil Bear: I saw what happened...Uncle Mike was coming back in house and Cousin Toby runned in wif out saying nuffin. Him usually meows so Mom or Uncle Mikes know to keep screen door open. Screen am got spring dat make door close real fast! Mom got her foot hurted one time cause door slam shut so quick.
Uncle Mike didn't see Toby coming in til screen door closed real loud and Toby runned behind couch. Uncle Mike tried to get Toby to come out but he ran under the recliner. Den Uncle Mike moved the recliner and Toby ranned into da kitchen and jumped onto the window sill above the sink.
Mom: So Uncle Mike said, please come help me check Toby. He was outside and the door slammed on him. He's hiding in the kitchen window. I left the computer room and went into the kitchen. But Toby wouldn't let me check him. He growled and refused to leave the window. Mike called our vet who was still open. Since I couldn't get Toby to leave the window, I brought the carrier to him. Surprisingly, Toby crawled out of the window on his own and into the carrier. I caught a glimpse of the end of his tail and the tip was bloody. Mike drove while I held the carrier. Upon examination, Dr. Johnson moved the long hair away and showed us how the skin was gone from Toby's tail tip. Unfortunately, that meant in order for Toby's tail to heal, the tip will have to be amputated. He could do the surgery, but being so late in the day he suggested that we take Toby to the Emergency Clinic so the staff there would be able to monitor him during the night.
We left Willowbend Animal Hospital and took Toby to the Emergency Vet. It is now midnight here in Kansas, and due to a few other emergencies, Toby has not had the surgery yet.
Since most of you won't see this until morning... will add a post about his surgery as soon as we have that info.
Lil Bear: Please purr fur Toby as him gets well frum surgery... Toby and hims siblings will be 4 years old in May. Mom am wondering if any bloggers has a cell phone dat we could text during an emergency so we can lets our innernets frinds know sooner to purrz and pray. Am anyone doing a purr list likes dats or puts ups a post during mergencies??? If you knows, please leave commints and send us an email wif purrsonal stuffs to laugh_safely ats yahoo.com.
Mom: Please keep Uncle Mike in your purrs too. Toby is his first "cat," and Mike is feeling really sick over hurting Toby. Mike is also losing his job in June due to company takeover by a larger corporation who is moving the whole assembly plant to Warsaw, Indiana.
