Truffle Tuesday

Hi Everyone!

I scared my mom Sunday night.  I woke her up around 2:00 am gagging and wheezing.  She checked my mouth and throat and couldn't find anything, but I did this all night.  Mom Paula called the vet as soon as they opened Monday morning and they said to come in around 9:10 am.  Mom Paula decided to give me a treat to see if I could eat and swallow.  I chewed 2 treats and I've been fine since then!!!  The vet lady said that my temperature was slightly elevated (+0.1 degrees) and that either I had the beginnings of an URI (although there are no symptoms) or that I had some hard food stuck the wrong way in my throat and chewing the treats dislodged it.  See, treats are great for our health!!!  Would make a great advertisement, wouldn't it?

Mom stayed home with me all day to watch over me.  I liked having her home, but I don't recommend this particular method.


I don't think I like this red thing, though.  Every time I get in it, someone in a white coat pokes and prods me!  I go back to the vet on Friday for my final kitten vaccination.

Pee ess - Mom Paula had a biopsy last week for a skin lesion on her stomach.  It came back as cancerous (Squamous Cell Carcinoma) and she goes back to the dermatologist Wednesday afternoon to have more tissue removed.  Please keep her in your purrs and purrayers.

We will purray for your Mom, Truffle! We hope the removal goes without a hitch.

You look kinda sad in prison like that, MOL! But I bet if you bat your baby blues, somehuman will let you out PDQ.

You know, those really sharp little things at the very edges of your sweet paws? Well, those can be really useful when somehuman tries to put you in a PTU or drag you out of one to give you a ::whisper:: shot.

Just sayin'.

Mark's Mews said...

Oh! We are purrin ya are OK!

Simba said...

We hope that is the end of the wheezing and gagging, Truffle. Are you allergic to sleeping with Mom? Kindof kidding.

We will purr for your Mom and her skin cancer. Hopefully it will be routine and no further troubles. Is she having it removed by Mohs surgery? When they do that, they check to be sure everything is removed right at the time, and it can be done in the office. But it takes a specialist.

Sparkle said...

I am purring lots for your human. I hope that once the dermatologist gets more tissue, that is the rest of it!

BTW, yeah, those carriers... no fun. I do like the idea of treats being good for you, though!

Poor Truffle -- and poor you! I'm so glad she's okay -- you've been through enough kitty tragedy recently.

And purrs for you that this situation can be easily resolved. I know they can laser the affected area and that usually takes care of it. We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Mom calls my hairballs dramatic. I'm usually perched on the back of the chair and start coughing and turning my head from side to side. Then… I stop!
Give Mom Paula lots of purrs and kisses. Our grandpaw had one of those things removed from his cheek and he's ok. Purrs!

The Whiskeratti said...
