The eagle has landed!

I called this morning for an update on Deuce and still no diarrhoea (yay), but no action either.

I called again around 4:00 this afternoon and success! The eagle has landed, he had a normal poop (yes you need to know that), I got more details on it, but I don't think you really want to hear about it in depth.

We decided to go to the clinic and ended up spending half an hour with him. He was in a large cage which is placed in an area where the vets and techs can keep an eye on him, and he has enough room where he can move around and stretch, so that's a bonus.

When we went to see him, I opened the cage door and he came trotting over. I picked him up and he started cooing and purring and I just wanted to scoop him up and run for it. He kept rubbing his head against my arms and hands, but he didn't give me a kiss this time. I think he was really happy, or at least what I perceive as really happy, to see us.

All the techs crowded around and said "what a handsome boy he is!" and Josh jokingly said "oh thank you, and what about the cat?"...but none of them got it. :P

Thank you everyone for your concern and well wishes for our little furbaby. It looks like he's well on his way to a full recovery. :)

I would be beside myself as well if it were one of my babies. That totally sucks - poor Deucey Boy. I think it's a good idea thathe's at the vet for the weekend too, because you knwo that as soona s you get themm home, that's when they start acting funny again and you just want to take them right back! lol... Have a great time with Nicole - I'm jealous that you guys are hooking up this weekend!!! Can't wait to hear about your trip!

I tried the delete and re-add to Bloglines and it didn't show you with any updates...I don't know what the problem is.

I'm glad to hear Deuce is doing better. Hopefully he'll be home soon and everything will be back to normal.

I've been readin all your posts about your poor kitty. I hope that he is feeling better by the minute so that you and he can rest easily. We are going through something similar with our kitty at this moment as well. We think that she may be in congestive heart failure as her chest cavity and lungs are filling with fluid. She is home with us for the momen (only because I refused to leave her at the vet) but it looks like we may head into Toronto with her either tonight or tomorrow. We were referred to the clinic on Yonge (the big one?). Sigh...I'm so sad.
