My little girl cat, Tola, is at the vet today for a dental cleaning. Apparently her little heart beat is racing though, and they're doing a thyroid test before continuing to put her under for the cleaning. She was so scared to go this morning, huddled as small as can be and yowling her head off. Hard to believe a six pound cat can be so loud! So now I'm just worried at work! Hope my baby girl is okay.

Cheez_Wit: Happy Caturday, everyone!

Target went to the vet for her first visit on Monday. She definitely had something going on in her eye, but some antibiotic ointment took care of it in short order. The vet also thinks that she's maybe 5-6 weeks old, not 6-8 weeks. Either way, she's doing just fine. She has, however, chewed through the cord of my earbuds. I'm thinking that the best way to get rich is to invent cat-proof earbuds. :D

And now, it's time to play Spot the Cat![i81.photobucket.com image 200x266]


I'm glad to hear that Target is doing well (even with the naughty earbud chewing).

Riktor had his teeth cleaned last year...after all the stuff I've read here (and I THANK YOU for sharing it!), I figured we could head a LOT of health issues off at the pass by doing so.
They did blood work beforehand, just to make certain he could tolerate the sedation (he was 10 at the time)...he came through with flying colors. Forgave me the minute we got home, too.
You're doing a Good Thing for Tola...even if she has her doubts about it...

She's had to have several teeth removed, so its a once a year thing now. She's been much happier since some of those bad, painful teeth are gone. Haven't heard any news, but I'm assuming no news is good news and she's getting her teeth cleaned now with no thyroid problems! Tasty gooshy food when she gets home for sure (since she's not a snuggler).

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Bathia_Mapes: I'm so glad to hear Puki is home safe & unharmed. Wish I had some way to get you first aid supplies. Just remember to clean every scratch, gouge, etc. well with soap and water and make certain to get some neosporin when you pick up first aid supplies. We don't want you getting an infection.

Thank you so much. :)

/I did have some slightly out of date neosporin, and I slathered that on the more nasty scratches. It's better than nothing until I can get to the store tomorrow, anyway
//rotten little bastard.... I'm not sure if I want to hug him or strangle him right now
///ok... hug... I guess



Also make sure that you are current with your Tetanus shots.  They supposedly last 10 years, but if it has been 7 or 8 years or more since your last one it might be an excellent idea to get another one!  I heard about  a fellow who came down with Tetanus even though his last immunization was 8 or 9 years earlier.  (This was from a credible source -- a Veterinarian friend)

Tried to comment on Mollie's good looks earlier but it didn't work as intended. Wonder if blue eyes are due to youth, still, or if that's are permanent?  Grey accents "interesting". Reckon the micromedics'll see --
Except for a space number in Dayton HamVentionR flea market, which is several acres, have finnished the local radio club rag.  Now on to the women's radio rag, for which some copy's come in.

Advice please.  It's 22:12 here so too late to call the vet, but my boy Henry has a lump on his back, right between his shoulder blades.  I've just noticed it while giving scritches.  It's about 1.5" round, about 0.5" high, right under the surface of the skin but doesn't seem to be attached to anything underneath.  He's not concerned by it and not in pain. Anyone else seen this on their furbuddy?  Insect bite of some kind?

Sounds like it could be a cyst. I wouldn't worry to much about it for now but it would be good idea to make a vet appt. tomorrow to get it checked out if it's still bothering you.

Thanks for that. Would a cyst be painful?  I'm going to get him an appointment asap anyway, he's not the sort of cat to get random ailments, he's usually incredibly healthy.

Not to be scary, but where does Henry usually get his vaccinations?  It could be a cyst, but you also want to be sure that it isn't VAS (vaccine associated sarcoma)  It is very important to be sure that when your cat receives a vaccination it is given in the leg, not the scruff of the neck.  It has be the accepted protocol for vets for over 15 years, but not everyone follows the protocol because it is so much easier to give the injection in the scruff.

So it looks like Tola may have hyper thyroidism. We're sending her blood work out to get a definitive answer. I see pills are an option, but both of my cats hate their mouths being touched, and she's a bit skittish already. Has anyone done the surgery or radioactive iodine treatment, or know about them? I know its early yet, but more information never hurts from first hand experiences.

Cysts may or may not be painful. Is he an only cat? Occasionally my two have fought where a tooth or claw broke the skin of the other and an abscess formed. A couple were sore but some were not, especially if it was almost healed by the time I felt it.

Didn't someone here say that you can get compounding pharmacies to make a gel you just apply to the inside of the ear?

Is that where they give his shots? Could be reaction to it. Might also be a fat deposit but is sounds almost too big for that. Not emergency but would call vet office when they're open and find out where they give shots.

Sherpa is a big help with hyperthyroidism.

My cat is hyperthyroid (Dx 2 months ago). She is on methiamazole and I actually dilute it in a tad bit of water and mix it in with her canned food. No issues :)

Should be dissolve (brain fried). Doesn't take a whole lot. I have a 3 cc oral syringe, usually put about 1/2 cc in and put the pill in :)

I think we have a winner. He got his shots last week. He's never had a reaction before so maybe the vet used a different manufacturer or something. I'm going to get him an appointment anyway just to be on the safe side.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: UPDATE: CAT WARS: RETURN OF THE PUKI
Round 1
Unable to sit still, I kept going out and walking around calling my little lost pal about every 10 minutes. Around 8:30, I spotted a movement in the brush across the road, and Puk trotted out into the road. Fortunately, there was a rare break in the traffic.
So I coaxed him across the rest of the way, and he decided to be an idiot an run around every direction but towards me. But at least I knew the little sh*tbird was still alive.
After about 5 minutes of calling and pleading, I got him to come within reach and grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and gathered him into my arms. Just then, 4 cars in a row came screaming down the hillbilly highway at about 60 MPH (this is 10 feet away from me) and sent him into full cat-sh*t panic. I tried to endure the pain of my ripped flesh, but I failed. Torn from elbow to fingertip, and wearing a newly shredded t-shirt, I had to let go, and he was gone again in an instant.
End of round 1.
Round 2.
I knew the little bastard was still close by, so I kept going out and walking around calling. Once again, I heard his familiar plaintive mew, and spotted him at the neighbors door looking at me and crying. Now, why that dumbass cat goes to the wrong door and then cries to me next door is a complete other mystery, but I digress...
After another 10 minutes of coaxing, cajoling, and generally making myself sound like a complete idiot to anyone listening, I managed to get hold of him again, and before anything else sent him into hysterics, get him back in the house.
End of round 2.

So... to recap...

Puki is safe at home again for the nonce.
I'm having a drink and trying to staunch the bleeding. Right hand got the worst of it, but both hands and arms sustained serious damage.
I discovered that I need to pick up some bandaids tomorrow.

/thank you all for your good wishes and thoughts; I have to admit I was pretty upset over that dumbass cat
//now... anyone want to donate blood?


That is good to hear! Remember to get some neosporin, too!

A couple of days ago I was squeezing some lemons, Suzy was right there to help (as she always is when I'm in the kitchen).

I lowered my hand so she could get a good sniff and she decided to give the lemon a little try. After a few seconds of smacking her lips and thinking it was not too bad, she gave my hand a big ol slurp.

I wish I was able to get her reaction on video. She was clearly shocked and not amused. I however, was highly amused.

Cysts, rampant hyperthyroid & mistaken linkie to another cat thread.  This one's about 5 down from top on main pg at moment: "911, what's your emergency?" "The neighbor's kittens are doing it in my yard." Just in time for Caturday?  37 comments there, ought not to have been the one.  Was another yesterday before I was able to find real  Caturday, that's no longer there.  Don't even recall now what the point of it was.
Had hoped Those In Charge of the local amateur radio club'd give me that number I wish to drop in. But it's Fri eve so they're out enjoying themselves, or working some exotic foreign contact it'll take 3 years to get the QSL card back from --
