The Back of Disrespect

SO, I finally seem to be really getting better. The Human says she was sooooo worried about me--Phfft. What did she expect after I was all miserable and manhandled?

But for a couple of days now, I have been eating a bit of my regular foods on my own (rather than having her rudely stick The Gerbers in my mouth so I had to swallow it), drinking some water mixed with half-n-half, and following her around again after days and days of barely moving. For the last couple days, I have actually played a bit (like a minute at a time, maybe) with a dangly toy. She was practically weeping with relief.

This whole abscessed anal gland dealio that has now happened three times is a problem. Because I will not allow touching at the vet's without being anesthetized, we can't go the rout of preventive "expressing" every month or so, so we are considering an operation to remove the glands. The vet says that will eliminate the problem altogether

It is quite 'spensive, but that's not *my* problem, now is it? Ha ha meow. But it can't be done till all the current problem is completely cleared up and I am tippy-top, 100%. All the precious bodily fluids they stole (my bloods! my precious pee!) came back purrfect, so we will bide our time and see what's what later in the summer.

We want to thank everyone for visiting so often and purring for me. You are all the best and I'll be back in visiting action soon.

  2. Poor darling Spitty! Hopefully they'll remove the glands, and you'll be done with all this! We still think it might go away on its own though.

  4. Oh no! You don’t want surgery! Maybe 3 times is a charm and it’s all better for good! We can only hope. Sending you all kinds of healing purrz and smooches.

  5. Spitty - I'm hoping that you won't need the surgery. Your Human is being good about looking after your health, even when the short term consequences are unpleasant, so perhaps you might reward her with a big hug?

  7. That sounds really unpleasant, Spitty - maybe you WOULD be better off without those glands. I'm sending purrs.

  12. Ouch! We've heard of a few cats, over the years, who've had their anal glands removed. That's better than the alternative of abscesses, Spitty. Maybe we're lucky that Nicki's a pretty good boy--he meowed in pain when the vet did it, of course, but at least it's doable. :-/

    Lots of purrs to you for healing now, and for whatever is to happen later.

    Have a serene Sunday and let us all enjoy some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  14. Spitty, there is no way that you won't feel better with those cussed things removed. But I hate for you to go through it, darling. Once you do however, it will be over forever and you won't ever have to worry about that again. I am so glad you feel well enough to allow the human some mercy and let her feel better. She was terribly worried. Are you up sleeping with her again at her side? If not, please do. It makes them feel miles better. They smile the rest of the day when they wake up with us. XXXOOO

  15. By the way, except you look totally and fully mancatly and I am a ladycat...we look so much alike at that angle, talio and all. xxoooxx

  16. We're glad you're feeling more like yourself, Spitty. It would of course be better if you didn't have to get surgery, but if you have to be anesthetized every time you have this recurring issue, maybe surgery isn't that much more stressful than what you keep going through anyhow. We're purring for you to feel better very soon!

  17. Stay well now Spitty.
    Those durn anal glands. #%$&^*@# to them!

  18. We all would love nothing better than a healthy and happy Spitty!

  19. Spitty we are praying they can find a solution! xoxo

  20. We hopes you are feeling all better furry soon, so you human doesn't need to worry. Well, except about the price of the operation!

  21. I'm glad they couldn't find gremlins in your blood or in your yellow ink. I send you a bucket full of Weim-Power, for a speedy recovery:o) Have a good sunday

  22. Oh my precious pal Spitty...your butt problem must be so uncomfortable. But thank Ceiling Cat your body fluids are healthy. And your human will make the best decision for your long term health...and we are all gonna be right here to support both of you

  23. Gee, bud, that sounds quite terrible all the way around. I'm glad you're feeling better, though. And you know your human really was worried--they get like that.

  24. We are so so so glad to hear you are so much better Spitty. WE know your human is very worried over you.

  25. Oh my dearest, swe...well, okay, dearest KS! I find it totally scary to think you may have to endure the knife again! But if it's for the best and you'd be done with this, err... sticky situation then I suppose it must be the right decision. Your mom must be beside herself with worry to have to cram fudz down ya. We can TOTALLY relate to that and when you eat again on your own we do weep tears of joy and relief. That Woman was a babbling idiot over the Ornj Mutant when he needed to eat.

    We send love, purrs, hugs & I even send a tiny bitey just so you'll know what you need to bounce back for.

    O, an dPEeesss; even if the surgery takes many green papers you totally know that a auction is always a welcome way for us to help our furrriends! I will order That Woman to start makin stuff right away so we'll keep checkin back.

    purrrrup!

  29. Oh Spitty, your recovery, playing with toy makes your human very happy for sure.
    Glad your blood and urine tests came back with good result. Take care and feel better. Purrs.

  32. Poor Spitty - what a rotten time you have been having! We are so glad you are on the mend now and send strong healing purrs - our paws are crossed for a full and speedy recovery.

  33. Spitty, we don't want you man (or woman) handled like that any more. If it takes an operation, then so be it. And we could have an auction to raise some green papers for you.

    Oh, we've known other kitties that have had this operation and they've done really well.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Spitty so glad to hear you are better. We would happily pitch in green papers to help permanently fix this problem. Anesthetizing you every time isn't safe either so a forever fix would be better.
    luv ya brother

  35. We are so glad to hear that the problem is clearing up and that there is a solution to it. We will continue purring!

  36. Spitty you have your pride re your bum. Good for you holding out. The humans are totally out of control aren't they. I go missing today for just a few hours and SHE is screaming and shouting and frightening the neighbours!! Think we need respite for sure!!

  37. Oh Spitty...we're so sorry you've had to go through all of this. We're very happy though to hear there's a possible long term solution for you. We're sending you some extra special purrs for your nether regions.

  38. Spitty...no human or kitty likes to be touched "there." Mommy says that they had a dog once with the same problem and the only way to go was surgery. This does sound pawful, but if it means never having to go through this again, that would probably be a good thing. Sorry we haven't been around much. Our mom is still dealing with this damn scorpion sting (though she doesn't type with her feet), which is her excuse. We will keep up the purrs.

Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
