Thank you all so much

The vet has let us take Inigo home early. He was looking so much better when we went in to visit, and he perked up when he saw us. The vet thought it would be more healing for him to be at home where he felt safe and would eat (he hadn't eaten at the vet)

We've just gotten home, I'm not letting Inigo out of my sight. Rumbles is afraid of him because he smells like vet. I suppose that's a good thing, it'll keep him from trying to chase Inigo or play with him. And he didn't try to steal Inigo's food (he ate a lot! *happy dance*)

We've got to take him back in on Monday for a checkup, and we have all kinds of med's he'll need to take. We've also got a specialist appointment with the heart doctor.

I know he's heard all your purrs and well wishes, and I bet you could hear his purrs, he's been purring so loud!! Thank you all.

Humans! Can you believe my Human is getting all leaky just thinking about Inigo home from the v-e-t and back with his loving people again? Gee, I thought it was HAPPY DANCE kind of news, not leaky news! But then the Human 'splained that sometimes the happy news causes the leaking too. I will never understand the Humans.

I am just purring and purring and purring with happiness for Inigo, thinking how happy he must be to be feeling good again and to be home. Oh, and food, too. Lotsa food.

Au and Target said...

That's all good news. Glad he's home with you; you have a very nice and thoughtful vet.

We're purring for Monday and hope all the good news keeps flooding in. Meows to all of you!

Eric and Flynn said...

That is great news. There is nothing like having your boy home with you. Much better for both of you. We are keeping our mega purrs going non stop.

Cat said...

OMG I'm very sorry to hear that Inigo is not well, I am currently out of town so I have not been able to visit much. It must have been very scary for you to see him in distress like that. I hope the medication will help and of course being home is the best medicine of all .

My kitties at home are sending purrs and prayers that Inigo will be better soon!!!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

We are so relieved that Inigo is feeling a bit better and we are gonna keep up the BIG rumbly healing purrs until he is really well.
We are so glad he's home wiv his fambly for the weekend ~ 'cos that's where he needs to be, surrounded by love.
Smoochies to yoo all.

Sparkle said...

I'm sure Inigo is WAY better off recuperating at home. Of course that does not mean any of us are going to stop purring for him, not even for a SECOND...

Simba said...

That is really good news that Inigo was well enough to come home. Be a good fella and take your meds nicely, Mr Flufflebum, and eat lots of good home foodies. Purrs continue for you here and all over the world.

Darwin said...

Aww Inigo! It sounds like you have something similar to my grandad hooman. Grandad hooman is doing just fine with medication now.

Take it easy brofur. I'll be sending healing purrs out to you.

Whskr & Dash Kitten said...

Forever Foster said...

It sounds like you've got a real smart vet, Inigo. Snuggles on tap from the lovely ones who love you sounds like a much better place to be for you than at the vet.

DailyGs said...

Hooray for being HOME! Everybuddy knows you feel much better when your home with your Momma! Purrs, Inigo!

Daisy said...

I am so glad to hear that Inigo is home and eating and starting to feel better! When Pixie started her heart medicines, it was amazing, within a few days her cough stopped and we could tell she was feeling better.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

This is fab news for a Frootbat Friday! Inigo will settle back in and start eating today, we are sure purrin for him! Mewmie remembers with her first heart cat how scared and anxious she was, watching him like a hawk and listening all the time with her stethescope every time she thought he was breathing different...but he was just purring most of the time, not breathing heavy after all! Then she relaxed bit by bit, but also knew every extra day with him was a treasure. He was diagnosed at 4 years old, too (HCM is most commonly diagnosed between 3-5 years of age and boys are more commonly affected than girls) and he lived til he was 15, as did his brother and his sister til she was 19. They all had HCM!

We await news of Inigo's diagnosis but here are some good links to info on hearts and HCM, so when you go into the cardiologists, at least you will have read over the info and it will sound familiar to you. Our mewmie always says the best cat owner is an educated one...
