Wonderful Wednesday Toby Tail Mewz!

Toby's Tail packed in gauze, syringe tube and blue tape
Last Week in Purrview:

Funny Worm! After Bandage Came Off Thursday AM
April 22nd Tuesday am: Toby's tail felt warm thru the bandage. Worried that he might be running a small temp.  Uncle Mike and I took Toby to the vet late afternoon. 

Thankfully no fever! And his tail was no longer warm. Dr. Johnson changed his meds to Zeniquin, since Amoxicillin (from Emergency Clinic) seemed to be making his stools a bit loose.  The Doc said should be able to remove Toby's bandage on Friday. Made Apt for Fri 4:30pm.

April 24th Thursday 6:00 am: When Uncle Mike awoke to go work, The bandage had come off on its own! Mike called the emergency vet who said as long as not red or swelling, just coat it in triple antibiotic to keep it moist.  I looked after Toby's tail while Mike went to work. Toby's Tail looked like a funny little worm sticking out of his fur.  No redness or swelling!  Healing really well, only dry and itchy. ITCHY TAIL!!! Toby wanted to get at his tail!  Poor kitty... The collar kept hims tail safe.  Toby licked the collar instead. 

Toby at Vets last Saturday

Early Friday 1AM:  Just getting ready to update the blog and let y'all know how good Toby was doing.   

Nana Mom calls (that's My Mom.. to kitties her am Nana), She is really sick from bad foods. She couldn't tell food was too old in fridge.  I rush to the Walmart (only store open), buy supplies like Pepto Bismol tablets, Gatorade, 7-Up, Imodium.  When I get there, she's throwing up and all that other yucky stuff. In and out of the bathroom all night... Very weak. I had to nurse Nana Mom all Friday.  Called Dr. Johnson and changed Toby's Appt to Saturday at 1pm... 

Stayed with Nana Mom Friday night and fed her chicken broth and Gatorade.
Saturday Morning: did errands for Mom while she slept.

Saturday Afternoon 1 PM: Dr. Johnson checked Toby. He thought his tail was healing really well! Sutures might take 7 to 10 days to dissolve.  Toby was going to have to wear that collar for a least another week or so...

The rest of Saturday and Sunday to Monday.... Looked after Nana Mom and made sure she had something easy to eat and drink.  Her computer doesn't get on the internet very well.. (getting a new pc ready for her hopefully next weekend).

Thankfully Nana Mom has nearly recovered from bad foods with the help of Pepto Bismol tablets, Gatorade, chicken noodle soup broth and a lot of rest. (And no trip to Emergency Room!!)

And Toby am being a furry good boy!!
What a trooper! Toby hasn't tried to get the collar off... he just lays around in Uncle Mike's bedroom.  He's figured out how to eat and drink with the collar on.

So What happened this week on Tuesday and Wednesday???? 
Katie Mom Took a furry long nap!!!  

Purrz til next Mewz,

Katie Kat the Mom.
