He's HOME!!

We got in to the vet, and he was sitting up properly. When we went over, he gave a very demanding MEW! (he hasn't done that in SO long!!) He kept trying to get out of his cage (which is also good progress!)

We put him on the floor, and he walked right into his cage and went MEW! like he was saying 'take me home!'

He's had some noms (thank God) and drank some water from his fountain... I don't want to feel too happy, but...

And excellent timing - my package from Nip and Bones arrived!! It had a special heated bed in it for Inigo (I'd ordered it before he got sick) and some toys for Rumbles. It had a Yeowwww nip toy that Rumbles is absolutely MAD about!!! I've never seen him react so strongly to nip! It's very strongly scented, it arrived at my work and another cat lady wandered by and commented that she could smell it - so it must be strong! I had to put it in a tupperware container in a drawer to hide it - we don't want to over stimulate Inigo.

And also - Perry the Birman's mummy had sent us some Greenies Pill Pockets!!! How perfect is that!! She sent Rumbles some nommy Party Mix so he wouldn't feel left out. He is having an excellent day overall *hee hee* and he's being very sweet to his big bro - not a single hiss out of him!

My friends... I feel very blessed today, not just for having my boy home, but also for all the kind support from you all.

We're feeling very happy for you!! So nice that Rumbles isn't put off like last time he came back.

I am overjoyed with all the good news! I am not surprised that Inigo was SO ready to come home! And the timing of the Nip and Bones package and Pill Pockets and treats from Perry the Birman's human couldn't be better - everything was ready for Inigo when he got home. Give Inigo lots of purrs and headbutts from me!

All paws, fingers, toes, eyes, legs, and arms crossed that Inigo continues to improve! (We do look a bit silly contorted like this, but it'll be worth it for our furry friend to recover!)

How wonderful it was to get on the computer this morning and see that Inigo was home and things were going well. Keeping my paws crossed and continued purrs.

Daisy said...

Hooray for having Inigo home at last! I am purring my best that Inigo will stabilize on the medications and he will be feeling all better soon.

We used a small piece of American cheese to give Pixie her medicines. She had 4 pills to take, and the cheese kept them all stuck together. Our mom just poked the cheeseball down her throat!

Of course we are still sending him tons of purrs and prayers so he STAYS better - we hope that he will be better for a very long time (and keep improving too). That bed sounds great, and boy, it is nice that Rumbles is getting some treats out of it too - that nip toy looks fun (the Yeoww stuff is always popular at our house too).

We think of Inigo all the time and will continue to send lots of purrs and crossing paws until he is 100% well and continues to be!

Hugs and purrs to all of you and especially Inigo and Thwack!

We think the Yeowwww catnip is the bestest in the world, so we can unnerstand why Rumbles is having such a good time!!
