Saturday update

Young lion kitty Maxx is doing fine tonight. He's out for a prowl and seems to be putting a little flesh back on.

Friday Kitty-cat blogging

Retro plushy!!

The vet is saying the bartonella test won't be back for another week (grrrr). In the meantime, the receptionist said it's fine that he's out of antibiotics, he can wait another week. (double grrrrr) "No, go back and speak to the doctor again. We do not want Mr. Plushy to have a relapse since his mouth isn't healed yet, now do we?" No call-back yet.

In the meantime, Mr. Plushy felt well enough to go out for a prowl last night and to play with his particle accelerator. If he'd just start killing his carrot again I'd feel we were really getting somewhere.

The vet called back and said antibiotics should continue for the time being. I'm sure lion kitty Maxx will be annoyed, but I'm relieved.

The plushy report

Lion kitty Maxx is doing just fine today, still on the mend. He sends purrrrrs out to all of his plushy thralls.

Mr. Plushy!!

For his fan club.

Busy Day

A very, very busy day for me, but rest assured, Mr. Plushy seems to be on the mend. In the meantime, go read Billmon, he has all the scoop on the Israel/Lebanon clusterfuck.

It appears to me that the Israelis have simply lost their minds. My suggestion to them is that they quit listening to Cowboy George and Biggus Dickus. They don't know what the fuck they'e doing. And now, it appears the Israelis don't either. And the entire arab world knows it.

Get a grip.

Plushy update

Lion kitty Maxx was sleeping peacefully in my desk chair when I left for work this morning, so all seems well for now. His abcess is still draining, but he seems comfortable enough. (Once I held him down and squirted his antibiotics in his mouth)

Thanks for all the good vibes everyone has been sending.

So far so good

The first round of tests came back and so far it looks like it's just an infection. We won't know for sure without a biopsy, but with his history we're going to wait and see how he responds to the antibiotics. No bartonella results until the end of the week.

Many thanks to all of you who sent Mr. Plushy good juju today.

Send good juju now, please

Mr. Plushy isn't feeling so brave today. And neither am I, for that matter. I'm worried sick that his tests are going to come back showing that he has a malignancy.

Any positive spells, prayers or other alternate dimension interventions would be appreciated.
