Here is a close-up of my beautiful Hope Jewel. Miss Peach and her mom are so talented!
And here is the beautiful card that Miss Peach sent along with the jewel.
So, yesterday I had to go to the vet. Yesterday, after I made stinkies in my litterbox, my mom noticed there was blood on my bum. After wiping it off, she looked in the litterbox and noticed a bit of blood on my stool too. So, it was off to the vet.
There are two very nice lady vets at my vet's office, one who is older, and one who is younger. They both looked at me, but it was the younger one who did most of the work. She stuck something cold up my bum, which I didn't like at all, and my mom and dad and the older vet held me still while she did that. I confess I was squirming a lot. Then, after it was removed, she stuck me with a sharp prick! I was a good boy, and didn't even cry out. I was weighed, and I weigh 7.8 lbs / 3.54 kg. Then the vet gave my mom some pills that I have to take for the next 6 days. My mom worked at a vet's office one summer when she was a student, so she knows how to pill a cat, but I still don't think she's looking forward to the experience.
My mom had to collect a sample of my stool, whatever that is, and I noticed her poking around in the litterbox after I made stinkies again. Humans can be very weird at times.
Anyhow, the vet doesn't think there is anything seriously wrong with me, since I'm eating normally and playing almost as much as I usually do. They'll have a better idea what's going on after they test that stool-stuff.
Unfortunately, once I'm all better from whatever is bugging my tummy at the moment, I have to have my teeth cleaned. I sadly have a lot of tartar for a cat my age. Unfortunately, bad teeth are not uncommon in Sphynx (yet another trait we share with Meezers) although they often look worse then they are, because some of the brown oil that accumulates on our skin can transfer to our teeth when we groom ourselves, giving them a brown appearance. But I also have tartar, and that's not from the grooming. So, when I'm back to normal, I have to go in to have my teeth cleaned. Yuck.
Anyhow, I would appreciate any healing purrs you can send my way. As I said, I'm eating and playing like normally, so likely it's just a bit of a bug I picked up while exploring the yard on my harness, or else it's just something that irritated my bowel. But some purrs would be appreciated. Thanks!
