Purr loud for our dad.


Nemo here. I made it back from the vet today and it wasn't that bad. The worst part was that they waited to give me my fancy feast until after the vet so it seemed like a really long wait for breakfast. It was raining and cold out though. We usually walk on our leashes to the vet and I'm always with my sister when we go but this time it was just me. There were no other animals there yet but my tail got big and puffy and my paws got all sweaty. My sister is usually the brave one to walk in and check out the situation while I slowly try to sneak in undetected. I don't like going there without her. The vet looked at my eye and gave me more drops. I hate the drops but I also am sick of squinting so my humans say that it will make me better. Mom said she wishes she could go to the vet because their prices are much more reasonable there. I have to tell you about something very important about my dad. He has to have surgery tomorrow and have a biopsy for a lump on his larynx. He is pretty young and doesn't smoke so it is likely that it isn't serious but he has to be under general anesthesia. Since I had to have a surgery on my neck once I know how he feels. I will share my story of that sometime, it is still a little embarrassing really. Lets just say sewing needles don't make tasty snacks. What is worse is that he couldn't eat anything after lunch and can't drink anything after midnight. Can you imagine how terrible that would be. He has to wait until 12:30 for the surgery. Mom says she will bring dad home afterwards and we have to take good care of him. That means lots of napping with dad, we like that. We just ask that you think of him tomorrow and purr for him and his larynx.

I will send some extra strong, rumbly purrs for your Dad (and your Mom) that his surgery goes smoothly and nothing serious is found. You enjoy some snuggling with him when he comes home.

I think you are both so brave to walk to the vet on your leashes. I don't know any cats that do that! I hope your eye is improving with the drops.

Thanks for visiting us!

We had to take care of our Dad when he had surgery 2-months ago.
It was HARD work cause he was very cranky sometimes.
But he was also cranky to our Mom, so we understood (maybe).
We hope it will be EASY work for you and your Dad will recover quickly.
