Remembering the Queen

On September 28, 2011 we lost Libby.  She was 15 years old.  We knew it was coming - she hadn't been eating and was barely drinking water for a couple of weeks.
When she was sick in August the VET told us that we had done so much for Libby over the years and that Libby was lucky.  We realize that she was preparing us to let Libby go.  
When we took Libby in on September 28th the VET told us there was nothing more to be done.  Libby was starving herself and she was ready to go.  All of this happened at the same time Pedro was being diagnosed with the bladder stone.  I didn't want to just throw a post out there about Libby's passing.  Libby was a WONDERFUL cat.  She looked you in the eyes when you talked to her.  She seemed to know, to understand what you were saying.  
She was resiliant. She survived the dog attack and lived 5 years with only 3 legs but never lost her sweetness.  When a new animal joined our family, she was the welcome wagon.  
She treated Natty and then Kitty Kitty as if they were her own kittens.  
She loved Ziggy and Pedro and Marley even though a large dog almost took her life.  
She never became fearful and always seemed to have a smile on her fluffy little face.
We will miss Libby.  She was our Queen...

I Can Pee!!

Being plugged up was no fun!  Peeing drip by drip took forever.  I didn't complain but when I had to go to work with my mom because we were getting new wallpaper (and she didn't want me to bite the paper hangers), she noticed.  She got me to the VET immediately and before I knew it I got sliced and diced and de-stoned.
The problem is they took TWO TOO MANY STONES FROM ME!  I am six FIVE years old and have managed to keep my BIG stones all this time.  The doctor told my mom that if they remove those stones too it COULD keep my prostate smaller and thus restrict my plumbing less.  So, even though removing my nuts, I mean big stones, won't keep my body from forming future bladder stones, it COULD help my ability to pass them.  To me that is an awful lot of COULDS.  I tried to use my psychic powers to tell my mom NO!  Don't do it!  Evidently she has no psychic powers and, sadly, I am de-stoned and neutered...

In Recovery - Doing Well

Just heard from the hospital that Pedro is out of surgery and recovering nicely.  I don't have any more information but the doctor will call later after he's done with his other surgeries.  SIGH OF RELIEF!

Pedro Update

Pedro is in the hospital and will have surgery today to remove the stone.  I will post more after the surgery is over.  The doctor is very positive and reassuring.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.  He is my boy...
