Tama's Tommy Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Yes, today is normally my day to blog, but I know that many of you will want to know how things went for our Tommy at the vet's yesterday, so I wanted to give you an update. It turns out that Tommy does indeed have an abscess. He is now on antibiotics for at least one week and we are crossing our paws that this will clear things up completeley. If it doesn't, then Dr. C will have to go in there and get it out. There is a follow-up appointment booked for next Tuesday morning. #1 is concerned because she is abandoning us and going off to Canada on Thursday of next week and she would really like Tommy to be all better by then. So, we could use some help in the purrs and crossed paws category.

Here he is at Dr. C's office, with Genji in the carrier (Genji is perfect and utterly fabulous according to Dr. C and he did well after his shots):


Dr. C was adamant that Tommy must NOT lick his wound, so he will be wearing the dreaded collar at night. To give him relief when he is within eyesight of #1 during the day, she is bandaging up his midriff, like so:


We will of course all be supervising him too!

I am also still supervising #1's work (oops that looks more like blogging and FB...):


And generally looking regal:


But I do manage to find a moment here and there to relax...

  1. I have got my front and back paws crossed for Tommy, and sending lots of purrs for the antibiotics to work so he is all better by the time #1 goes to Canada.
    That is a lovely photo of you looking regal, but of course it is good that you have time to relax too.

  13. I had a feeling, Tommy, but was hoping I was wrong. Bugger.

    Oh, and that would be the week that I WAS to meet #1 in PEI... but those plans were changed. Bugger again. I do hope #1 has a magnificent time and of course, that you heal up nicely before her scheduled departure.

  17. We sure hope those antibiotics will take care of that abscess. We know that #1 would never leave Tommy unless she felt very confident that she was leaving Tommy in good hands. All paws crossed for things to go well.

  20. Hee, hee! Blogging and FB ARE work too! And Tommy, I really feel your pain. I was almost out of my collar when the mom took it off. Then I couldn't help myself and now I'm starting all over again. I hope your abscess clears up before #1 leaves, for everyone's peace of mind.

    Purrs,
    MMM

  23. Thank you for the updates, dear Tama.
    Tell Tommy we are praying for him and sending all of our love his way. It is upsetting that our dearest dog is not well.
    We are glad to hear from Dr. C. that Genji is perfect and utterly fabulous. But we knew that since he was a bitty kitty! We are thrilled to know he did well with his shots.
    All of our love to all of you.
