Quick Update

I don't have much time for posting today, but I wanted to send a quick little update on Chance and his hoo-haa-ectomy. Chance did wonderful yesterday. He was a very good boy at the V-E-T and more than once I had a V-E-T tech ask me if they could take him home. All said how handsome and well behaved he was (Bendrix would be appalled by his good behavior, hehe). Once we got home and I let him out of his PTU, he ran right under the bed to hide and take a nap. He stayed under the bed till almost bedtime last night when he finally went and ate something. Then he sat next to the bed and meow'ed at me till I picked him up and put him to bed with me. By this morning he was rolling around on the floor like his usual self and only bit me once when trying to give him his pain meds. He refuses to jump up on anything (which is a good thing until he heals up) and he will not play with Imp, which of course concerns her. He seems to be handling everything without too much trouble and has shown no sign of discomfort since sleeping off the anesthesia. I will update more tomorrow. I loved taking the day off of work to spend time with my brave little boy, but now I am suffering the consequences of a cluttered desk. Back to the grind.............Check back tomorrow for some photos and updates.

We're glad Chance did well. We made a post to encourage him the other day but Buddy -- Well, let's just say it's a good thing Chance didn't read it before his surgery.

Glad everything went well. Taking away your food must have been torture. You'll have to eat extra to make up for it.

Hey Chance! I'm glad you got through everything fine! I do not understand why vets like to steal things from us too, I like every part of me just where they are! But oh well, I think it's ok, I can still have nice food and play, so I guess not having hoo-has isn't a great deal.

I'm so glad Chance is doing so well. Yes, Bendrix is appalled by his good behavior, but I, Hendrix, and extremely proud of my little brother.

He knows a happy VET is a quick VET appointment.

We will purr and pray he heals up so fast it will be a world record. Poor Little Imp, your brother will be ready to play soon.
