max kitty surgery update
He came through it like a champ, but apparently he's become a Packers fan:



My poor baby! He's swathed in vet wrap to keep his wound sites clean. The vet did a punch biopsy to see what is going on with him. I think that maybe he's had these issues for a while, and that's why he licked and worried at himself till he was raw. She cleaned up the crusty scabs on his tummy, because caught in the hair as they were, they were never going to heal. As long as he was out cold, she took a look at his teeth, and they were in great shape, no plaque. At least something went right.

I have to take him back Monday for a bandage change, Friday if he bites at them. In the meantime, three pills a day. Yay.

i feel: relieved relieved

I picked him up and he just laid his head on my shoulder and started purring. Poor woobie.

Poor guy! I don't think he likes his new outfit much. Glad he's all fixed up though, and hope he heals quickly. ::snuzzles the widdle puddy tat::

He's sleeping (fitfully) on my lap right now. He *really* doesn't like the wrap around his leg.

Poor baby kitty, but I'm glad he's all right.

So far, so good. He's FIV-positive, so it's hard for him to fight off infection, and since he was like this before I came home, goodness knows how long he's had this infection.

I am so glad he is okay and that you found the problem.

We have and we haven't. We still don't know why he got the abscesses, but hopefully the biopsy will be illuminating.

Poor little fuzz-dude! He doesn't look as annoyed as he might, which is good.

Poor kitty, he does not look happy. I hope he'll heal quickly.
Do you know the results of the biopsy yet? I hope it's nothing serious.

No, I won't get that till next week.
