Penny pooped! For the first time since this entire dental and jaw problem started, this morning I saw her poop! That means that she is eating well and her system is working normally. If the X-rays look good tomorrow, this episode should be over.
I’m so happy!
Penny ate more kibble today so, after feeding her wet food (and she ate almost all of that), I set out the regular bowl of her kibble in the customary place. If it’s gone when I get home, that doesn’t necessarily mean her brother and sister didn’t eat it, but she’s been eating theirs, so I suppose that’s fair. Anyhow, when left to her own…[Read more]
This is turning out to be a very good day for Penny. She is TDK for April 3, and this morning (April 4), she tried to eat a little of her brother’s and sister’s kibble. This is the first interest she’s shown in kibble since this whole thing started.
Penny came home from the hospital on Saturday. I asked her doctor if I should keep her in the bedroom, away from the Tornado Twins, and he said yes. Well, Pen was having none of that. The first time I opened the bedroom door with her in there, she ran out. I called the doctor to see if it was okay for her to be at large, and he said it was, as…[Read more]
Thank you, Kale and MS.
The facilities are superb, MS. This used to be an all-feline practice, but some of the clients are guardians of both cats and dogs, and they wanted to be able to take everyone to the same vet. They still only board and groom cats, though. That’s not a hardship because there are plenty of facilities that do those things for dogs.
It happened as a result of the tooth extraction. The doctor said he thinks he must have drilled a little too deeply. With this weird tooth resorption stuff, the roots stay intact, and I suppose with cats they drill them out instead of pulling them out.
It didn’t happen during the procedure, because the doctor checked carefully to be sure…[Read more]
Pen is back in the hospital overnight. She’d quit eating again, so she went back to the vet on Saturday. He removed what was left of her sutures but, when she got home, she didn’t eat, didn’t drink, and only wet the litter once overnight Saturday/Sunday. (I haven’t seen a stool from her since before her teeth were extracted.) She went back in…[Read more]

Here in Athens, GA, USA, it stormed like mad night before last; was cool today; we get spring back tomorrow.
I submitted Penny’s picture for TDK.
The Sweet Young Man has given her back to me. Penny is at home now, staying in the bedroom with some special wet food, her usual kibble, water, and a litter box. I need to keep track of her eating, drinking, and litter box use. When she first got home, she drank, and drank, and drank, like she’d been in a desert. We also had some very good…[Read more]
The doctor couldn’t come this evening. I didn’t get a call.
But I’ve placed Penny in the scarred hands of the Sweet Young Man who watches over the Rainbow Bridge. He may give her back to me. Or, he may set her down in the rich green grass that grows in the meadow at the foot of the Bridge. When she was a kitten, she used to dart out the door to…[Read more]
Someone from the vet’s just called. Pen still isn’t eating and is hiding in a box in her “condo.” The doctor who saw her last night had suggested she might feel more at ease at home and might start eating again. Those are too many “mights” for a 12-year-old cat who’s just lost a pound from going 4 days without eating and could go into renal…[Read more]
