Woo hooo!!! Maxx is HOME!!!!!!!

I was out putting up flyers on each and every door when I found a woman who said, "Oh! I took him to the emergency clinic last night!"

Fuckers. I called them today and the receptionist said he wasn't there. The woman pre-paid $900.00 to take care of his expenses, which I promptly paid for. (It wasn't $900, but I don't know what the damage is.)

Maxx already wants to go outside. He's never going out AGAIN.

Whew. Thanks again for everyone's good thoughts. I'm just so relieved that he was somewhere safe.

PS. I'd post a pitcher, but it would probably scare everybody. :-)

The genorosity of that woman who paid the 900$ is absolutly amazing. She deserves a huge flower bouquet, plushynurse. And chocolate too!

I'm sooooo releived. I hope MAx is staying IN FOREVER now!

I KNEW IT!!! Maxxie, love, you are so never ever going out again. Lookit how many people you bent outa shape! Thank you, 4LG, for update. You poor thing, you must've been frantic, posting at all hours of the AM. Your neighbour is a good person. Though I can't help wondering why she took him to the clinic and not straight home to you. His little mouf must've been bleeding again, poor baby. Now I can sleep. You two get some sleep too.

Huzzah! I'm so sorry you had to go through that, but I'm awfully glad he's back again.

ThePoliticalCat said...

Please post a picture. Maxx is always beautiful, no matter how he looks on the outside. I'm just so glad he's home.

...go ahead. Post a picture. Reality can't live up to our fears.

I'm glad Maxx found an advocate.

I'm glad you have Maxx.

GLORY HALLELULAH...I WAS TOO AFRAID TO HOPE...NOW I CAN SAY IT,WANTED TO TELL YOU LAST YEAR...PLEAZEEEEEE dont let him out anymore...treats and toys ....EEEE..I WAS SICK ALL DAY WITH WORRY .......sittenhappy

ThePoliticalCat said...

Or if he must go out, let it be on a no-slip leash and harness, or carried in arms. With leash and harness at the same time. Sort of a belt-and-suspenders deal. Gads, I'm so happy, I just pinched Gojira. Now she's all mad at me.

Thanks everyone!!

ThePoliticalCat said...

PS: I forgot to say - only post a Maxx pitcher if it's OK with him. Otherwise, I can live on Maxx memories. Oh, and the fambly here demands to know exactly what happened (rude buggers that they are), and how Maxx ended up in emergency and how you got him back. I guess I annoyed everyone with my whining. Sorry 'bout dat.

jenny from the blog said...

I sorta hope he can still go out, but definitely supervised. Being in the fresh air makes him happy and he needs his spirits high to get well again. hmm...my cat goes out into the garden with me. She just sits there. Pretty amazing. Maybe maxie will be happy just taking little walks with the centaur.

Well, all in good time. I'm so thrilled!

Oh, thank God, Allah & Buddha! Whew. Poor baby.

I'm so glad he's back.

Many hugs to you and to Maxx, and blessings to the lovely lady who took him in to get more care than she could give.

That's wonderful news! :) Your neighbour is a really nice person, to put up $900 just like that.

It turned out to be $592, and I had the clinic credit her credit card back- I covered the tab. Ouch.

Are donations accepted?

Fourlegs,

I just made a donation. All the best to you and Maxx.

Hurray! Hurray! A great New Year gift for us all.... Be sure to tell your neighbor how much your friends appreciate her...

Oh, Maxxie! You scared us -- no more of that now, we love you and need you home and safe!

Prayers do help, they surely do!

Well, I did tell you originally that he was using up one of his lives.

So happy he's home, and what a nice neighbor you have!!

Does Maxx have a ID collar or is that not a good idea because of the tumor?

four legs good said...

Pie, he has a collar, but his name tag had fallen off, and I hadn't replaced it because it would bounce against his chin.

I'm getting him a new one for sure now.

done.

Been there, more than once.

Years ago my landlord in NYC, who was not a dog lover kind of guy,once took my dog to the vet after an awful emergency in my absence. acts like that are the work of angels or at the very least, a benevolent universe, and we have to keep paying it forward.

best of luck.

4LG, he doesn't need a new name tag now that he's home and safe and never ever allowed outside without you by his side!
