We are not thankful for this cat that has been hanging out and getting fed on our deck.
We hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving. Our humans will be home on Saturday and they promised leftovers. I will share my tail photos when they get back as a warning why not to escape the house when they get back.

Feeling better, no thanks to my mrowing people. They let that bhaby thing grab mii all the tyme. Well I'm here to let them know who's boss, I peed on the floor until they got my preferred litter back. I rub my krusty tail skin on them every chance I get. Patchacat is still boss of this house. If that bhaby is going to keep grabbing me we're going to have to see some changes around here. I can dodge him if I want, but it's my house, I was here first. My brother is less smart. He lays right on his toys! The bhaby lays on him then. Dumby brother cat.

Patches is at home now and resting. The vet believes there is adequate blood flow to the tip that there will not be any amputation needed. Patches was sedated and they shaved the hair to get to the cut. She has a pretty big gash in her tail where skin ripped right off the tail. They put some surgical glue on it, gave her antibiotic shot and pain meds. When we picked her up she was not a happy camper but she has been ok since getting home. She wanted to eat right away as she hadn't eaten all day but then she threw up. She has to wear an e-collar for 2 weeks if we can keep it on her. She is having a hard time with the collar and knowing where she can fit and how she can get places. Right now she wants to jump up on things but lacks the ability to see well. We tried gating her off in her own area but she jumped over the gate. We are just trying to keep her comfortable and keep Owen away now that she can't run fast enough. Anyone with tail injuries want to share how it went. I will post pics soon of her gash and her in the e-collar. The poor thing is having a hard time finding a way to be comfortable to sleep. I'm sure each day will get better. We have 3 days of pain meds so hopefully that helps.
Just wanted to give an update and the story of Patches' tail problem. I was doing trash last night and saw her heading for the door so I went to close it, but she was already out the door. Her tail got shut and her first reaction was to try to pull it. I opened the door and she went running to eat grass, which is what she usually wants to do when she gets outside. I could see that it was bleeding and that it was kind of limp on the end. I got her inside and called the ER vet. They said to control the bleeding and then bring her in in the morning. They said if it was broken they might need to amputate part of the tail. She ate and acted pretty normal last night and moved her tail around which would make it bleed more. I could tell she was having a hard time getting and staying comfortable but otherwise she acted normal. We took her to the vet this morning. The vet said that it looked like the blood flow was still going to the tail and that it looked like she ripped the skin off. The plan is to shave part of her tail and clean it up and give her some antibiotics. They took her back and they decided they need to sedate her to do this. They will sedate her and shave the tail and clean it up and see what needs to be done and will call us with any other problems but that is the plan. She may have a kink but they are going to try to save the tail. I am going to call at noon to check on her to see what they did if we don't hear from them. Thanks for all the purrs and keep them coming. We will keep you updated.

Mom update: Nemo had to have 2 teeth removed. One was a bag molar and the other one of the small front teeth. It seems to take Nemo forever to completely be out of the anesthesia. He was of course hungry when he got home and very loopy and jumpy. This morning he is back to normal. He does have pain meds for 3 days and antibiotics for 10. He has gingivitis so it should help take care of some of that. They said he might not eat for 2 days but they obviously don't know Nemo. He came home and devoured his wet food. I don't think he is bothered by it at all. He also got his nails trimmed while under.

Here we both are. Nemo is depressed because he continues to have his bloods stolen every few weeks. Here I am, trying to see if I can pee on this chair no doubt. This is about as close as we get to one another. If I would have known he was there, I would have bopped him.

Rrrrrrrrr, we don't get on the interwebz vurrry much any moar because this baby is always chasing us around! I got a whiff of fresh air the other day and I've been purrrrring as loud as I can but mom and dad won't take me outside. Noaw they saz it's the white stuf out again..... Betus Brother got to go out in the sun but I didn't. That makes me mrowing mad. Mom and Dad are real stressed out because of something about closings getting moved because of underpants. They say as soom as the bank finishes the loan through underpants we can close the door and move into our new house. Dad promised to concoct some patchacat grazing enclosure for me. Time to go bup Betus cat in the face for getting to go out in teh sum.

This is Patches and Nemo's mom. I just wanted everyone to know that we are still alive and haven't froze our tails off in Iowa. The cats are being pains in the butt tonight so I told them I was going to do a quick blog post. They have their secret paws photos to show off soon. We are still working on getting Nemo's diabetes regulated but I will let him tell you about that in a few days. We will try to get here more regularly. Patches is getting grumpy that she hasn't blogged in forever. We will return when mom has energy to organize photos. Hopefully this week or weekend.
