Well, we won the battle...

Hello everyone! *Tasha smiles with her sparkly new teeth* Thank you all for your support, I had my surgery yesterday and it went very well. I got spoiled rotten because I'm a very special girl and the VET took embarrassing pictures of me while I was under the influence, grrr... Mommy was a mess, she missed me so much that after my surgery was over she came and sat with me for 2 hours until I could go home! I was verrrry sore last night, I couldn't take pain medication (the main one can't be given to cats with kidney disease and I got terrible bloating with the medication they gave me side swelled up so much Mommy thought I had a hernia and freaked out again, she's so neurotic.)

A bit of bad news is that my lab results showed that I'm anaemic, that means that I don't have enough hemoglobins in my blood to carry oxygen to different parts of my body. Mommy is going to give me special vitamins every day to see if that helps, otherwise there are injections that will give me the missing hemoglobin.

Oh well, you can't win 'em all...

A big job!

Wow, I've done 2 poops in 2 days, this is a personal record! I don't have much to say tonight, my mommy is getting pretty stressed about my surgery and she keeps trying to smother me with her love... Only 7 days to go, I can't wait until it's all over and I can hit the "all you can eat" at Buffet Royale!!

Have I mentioned how much I love all my friends? I never knew so many people cared about me, it fills my mommy's heart with happiness. Whatever happens next I love you all!!

An exciting weekend!

Yesterday Mommy took me to the VET. Yuck!! It was snowing so hard that by the time I got there I was covered in white flakes (right through my carrier, can you believe it?) and I had to convince everyone that I did not indeed have dandruff. After everyone petted, kissed and fussed over me the yucky medical part started. We found out that I haven't gained anymore weight so mommy was bit upset about that, I also have higher blood pressure than I did a few months ago but it's still considered normal. The vet recommended going through with the surgery so in two weeks time I will have sparkly new teef. Yay.

Today was a great day, I got to eat some pineapple, I napped on my blanket and mommy took some more toupee pictures...I have the Shirley Temple, the Mr. T and the sultry Marilyn Monroe look... I am of course the returning star of and for you today I will model the Shirley Temple because I'm in that kind of mood!

Oh, the Horror!

I had a bath last night. No, it was not voluntary. Mommy said I smelled like pee and tuna and she didn't want to cuddle me until the situation changed. So she dumped me in the bathtub and washed me like an incontinent infant. CAN YOU IMAGINE?? My tail didn't dry properly, it has lost its mojo and just drags behind me...Pippin thinks it's a toy and keeps trying to bite my bum. I will get her for this, I really will-I just have to have a little nap first. And I better wait until after supper to get my revenge...stay tuned!
