Gimp Update!

The Gimp had a vet appointment on Friday to have his stitches out. YAY!

That also meant that his cone could come off and I have never seen a happier cat than when we came home.
More details and a bigger blog post later, I promise. But I've GOT to get jewelry made and listed and work done to offset the vet bills!

Here's the happy Gimpy when we got home from the the check-up/stitches removal:

Quick Pic of the Gimp

i will post more of an update when i have time, but i just wanted to share a picture of Gimpy for those of you who have been sending love and following his story.

his poor little leg was removed yesterday and he had a rough evening.

this was taken today (day 1 post-op) after he had some lunch and i'd spent a good half hour scratching his head and rubbing his cheeks. he HATES the cone of shame but he has to wear it. and his purr motor works just fine!

i'm having a really hard day today

i dropped the gimp off this morning and that was hard. i was in tears and still am, off and on. i know he'll be fine but he's wormed his way into my heart in such a short time and it was so hard leaving him there. they should call me in a couple hours and hopefully he can come home tonight.

i've been home for a few hours just waiting to hear something from the vet. i'm too distracted to do anything productive, which sucks, cause i have a LOT to do.

so i figured i'd double check my paypal account and make sure i have enough in there to pay for his surgery.
what do i find when i log in? unauthorized charges on my PP credit card to the tune of hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

The Gimp Goes Under the Knife

first thing tomorrow.

at my last update, i told you all how i'd asked the doctor for more time to try and save his leg, right?
well today his poor overly swollen foot started oozing. the next step after that is gangrene so we have to act fast. i drop him off first thing in the morning and i'm hoping and hoping he'll be able to come home tomorrow night!

thanks so much for all your help and prayers and love. it means the world to me AND to him!

here he is taking a nap in the window. i just wanted you to see his adorable little face.
