PuddyTat

She has had serious eye drainage for a month or so but I couldn't catch her. When I returned from Edinburgh, the eye was obviously blind. I was able to swoop her into the carrier finally. The vet said removing it would be best. They dissected the eye and said it was a mess but they couldn't find what had caused the problem. Now PT is confined to the cathouse at the back of the garage. She learned to manipulate the cone quickly fortunately and won't get hung up on anything. The problem will be keeping her in there.

After being held for the first time for two hours at the the vet she seems to have decided that isn't all bad. She came to be scritched when I returned after giving her some time to adjust. Guess I will take antihistamines and do that occasionally. Wish I could have her in the house. She is a sweet cat. I hope she heals quickly without complications. She is to be confined with the cone for two weeks but I won't be home that long.

Ah, poor Ms. PuddyTat. Of course I want you to give Ms. PT an extra "scritch" for me, but I also wanted to see the comments feature still works. There used to be a big fat "0" when no one left a comment. Now it says "No Comments," which almost makes it seem as if none are wanted.

Wish I could do the scritching for you. She looks so sore.

Actually she doesn't seem sore. She doesn't flinch if I touch the stitches. Maybe the pain stuff hasn't worn off yet? I just wish she'd use the litterbox.

I'm so sorry that she's going through this, and I hope it will all heal soon and thoroughly. I imagine that it's a stressor for you, too. Wish I could give you a hug and give PT a gentle stroke.

How is she coping now (Sunday, but just barely)?
