Sweetie's new hangout, since she is avoiding the bedroom
She enjoys looking out the windows; I stuffed my phone in front of her to take this!
I love seeing her so relaxed.

Sweetie continues to be a sweetheart!

Her trip to the veterinarian on Monday had some bumps and some positive things:

1. We arrived 30 minutes early
2. I was so flustered that I forgot to ask several important questions, like is she deaf, and how old is she?
3. Blood tests need to be redone
4. Sweetie is avoiding the bedroom (and The Hubby) where she was caught, manhandled, and stuffed into the carrier! 
5. She has a bad canine tooth that needs attention
6. Probably has an upper respiratory infection

1. The vet was able to take her in despite us being early
2. She tested negative for FIV
3. The staff said she was a real lady, allowing nail trims and pets!
4. Heart and lung sounds are good
5. For at least one day, I was able to give her the antibiotic capsule
6. Sweetie enjoys my morning conference calls, as she rubs against my ankles and meows loud enough for my co-workers to hear!


More information is forthcoming, as she will need to get to the vet again.
We await the blood and urine tests that they can run.

A shout out to the veterinarians and staff at Cats Veterinary Hospital!

I really want to be the human whom you look forward to seeing, not a stressed out, crazypants freak!


P.S. According to the Governor of Michigan, all elective veterinary surgeries are to be suspended at this time, including spay & neuter, dentals, etc. unless the animal's life is in danger.

We will do nothing that counters this important mandate.

I am happy to hear that Sweetie is doing well. ♥

Marg said...

So glad that Sweetie is doing well. I know just how you feel catching the ones that don't want to caught. You have a great day.

Rene said...

We're glad for the (mostly) good news. Can you mix the capsule in with some chicken baby food? That's a trick we've used many times here.

Sandee said...

I hope you can get what she needs done soon. It seems life is on hold all over the place.

Have a fabulous day. Scritches to Sweetie. ♥

Total sweetness, much appreciated
Zach is going to a pet hospital to get Bo's series of shots that he can give them over the next few weeks. He needs his series in case he gets to come home with him and he needs them to be a healthy kitty!!

She is such a sweetheart. So glad to see her settling in with you.

Sweetie is in the best of hands! I made no bones about my frown when my neighbors , over 10 feet away, gleefully told m me their cat is pregnant. UGH. Ugh. Ugh. The whole we want the kids to see birth crap

She looks like she's enjoying the inside life...though maybe not the vet. ;)

Sweetie...forgive your daddy. He had to do it.

The Whiskeratti said...

Sweetie is definitely settling into her new life very well. Smart cat! I'm glad that there is a an exception for critical care.

I am glad you got some good news and hopefully Sweetie can get that tooth dealt with soon. XO

Cathy Keisha said...

She is so pretty. If she's in pain from the tooth, that doesn't sound elective.

She looks beautiful. We are happy for the good news and sending prayers that they bad news is healed.

Tamago said...

I just love seeing Sweetie enjoying indoor life! Some bumps but lots of good news. I hope she will come back to bedroom and forgive your husband some time soon :-)

Darla M Sands said...

I'm sad that spay/neuter and dental procedures are on hold. Hurray for Sweetie's resilience! You're good people and she's very lucky. :) Stay safe.

Olka said...

She's amazing <3 I understand that all the surgeries have to wait right now. Anyway, stay safe and I hope everything will return to normalcy soon...

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Hi Sweetie! *big paw wave* Glad you're doing well.

John Bellen said...

Well, at least Sweetie was able to be seen by a doctor; it's too bad that she'll need to go back. I have heard that spaying and neutering everywhere are being postponed. I would think those are urgent cases, as they are for the good of the cats and dogs, and in some cases can very much help adoptions.

Glad you were able to get Sweetie into the vet. I hope she comes back to the bedroom soon.

Sweetie looks like a real lovebug! It is good that you could get her to vet.
