Just thinkin'...

Did I ever mention that the vet's wife called Savannah "pancake-face" or "pancake kitty" when Heather first brought her in? (Not in a bad way, just to be descriptive)

Not sure why I thought of that, or needed to share...

Clean Bill of Health

Savannah went for her post-surgery checkup today, and it's official: she should need no more surgery and no more follow-up appointments.

Savannah goes to the Dentist

Took her to the specialist yesterday, who did a number of (very expensive!) procedures on her, including the removal of seven teeth. Hopefully this will be it for her as far as surgeries go, although we won't find out until she goes in for her re-exam in two weeks. We've thought she was done before, so I don't want to get my hopes up too much, but...

She came home last night hopped up on pain medication and/or the lingering after-effects of the anesthetic. It was recommended that we keep her in a small room where she couldn't get up on anything that she could fall off of, so we put her in the bathroom. She wobbled around, bumping into things, looking for all the world like someone who's had about eight drinks too many but who insists on walking all around the bar - funny at first but really sad and pathetic the more you watched. Took forever to get her relaxed enough to get to sleep - mostly Heather's doing, as I had come home from work and had to be up this morning to go in to the other job - but when I got up this morning she was sleeping peacefully.

Thanks again to everyone for their thoughts and emails and donations. We'd never have been able to do this on our own - the vet's bills alone have been over $4K in the eight months since we've had her. You all really don't know how much we appreciate everything from a quick "hope she's doing okay" message to the big donations that some people have made. There's no way she'd be doing as well as she is without all of you.

Savannah in the tub

Ha! Finally figured out how to post video. My favorite video of the kitty. Watch her play in the tub, come up for a smack at the camera, and then fall in the tub at the end.
