"Neurologically Appropriate"

BHU:  According to mai Patient Discharge Instructions, the vet said I "seemed neurologically appropriate."  Don't know what that means, but he also said that my mouth is healing well from the dental procedure, so THAT sounds good, huh?  However, he adds "No further physical exam was performed due to his aggressiveness."  Hey, I was just purrotectin' mai territory, if ya know what I means!

PATTY:  They are just trying to help you and I wish you would coopurrate.  If you had not been so mean, we wouldn't have to take you back in a couple of weeks. 

BHU:  Well, I'm not goin' back.

PATTY:  Sorry, Mister, but you are!  They even sold us a bottle of Feli-way spray to put inside your carrier before we take you there.  Apparently, that will make you more docile.

BHU:  Pffffst!  Doubtful!

PATTY:  So, everyone, just wanted to let you know Bhu is actually doing great after having ten extractions.  Afterward it was very painful for him, as you can imagine, and his fur was just a totally icky mess.  If you have ever had an extraction that required novacaine, you can sympathize.  Suddenly your lips don't work anymore and everything you're aiming at your mouth falls on your chest!  His muff really took a beating!  Anyway, thanks for sticking with us through this.  It was VERY expensive and we would not have done it except that the "Mewniversity" has board-certified anesthesiologists on staff.  That made us more confident that it would be safely and carefully done.  They did good!  Mai Bhu is running around the house like a kitten and his pain is gone! 

xxoo Happy Summer!

I'm glad the surgery went well. We just had surgery done on one of our cats.

I buy a purple calming collar .. don't know the exact name, it seems to help my purr gang when they go to the vet. You might want to look them up .. I got it at PetSmart.

We're happy to hear the surgery went well. When Sweet Praline was taken to her first vet visit, they put a red flag on her chart because she didn't like having her blood taken and tried to bite the vet. We don't know what he was thinking - after all, Sweet Praline was only a baby.

We know he was in pain and are so happy that that is gone!

Our boy is Handsomely Appropriate, too! I am so glad that he is "in recovery"! (Not that kind of recovery!)
