Tail of Woe Wednesday

Kitties!

Sylvester here...FINALLY!

As you probably heard, I spent the night at the Place which Shall Not be Named.

As expected, it was awful.  They starved me, made me sleepy, scaled off all the toofy tartar I worked so hard to accumulate, performed some odd leg-shaving, and STOLE* my skin tag!  Although I will have a cool scar.  

Anyhoo, the vet (who was a tiny little girl elf) called me fiesty!  I was on my best grumbleguts behavior and I growled, hissed and spat the entire time.  The vet also said I was a bit on the hefty side...fie on that!  
When I got home I had to make the rounds.  At least I didn't have any stinky vet skank on me; nobody had any worries over who I might be.  Thank Cod.

First stop was the crunchy food tower.  I was famished.

I filled in the last empty bits with some stinky goodness.

What goes in must come out...

I finished off my homecoming with a nice cool drink.

GROSSNESS ALERT!!

Here's my incision!  It's almost two inches long...Mommy was a wee tad freaked out at how large it was.  I have internal dissolving stitches so I don't have to go back to have them removed, HURRAH!

The good news is that I don't have to wear a conical contraption.  Something about being a little too wide in the glide to be able to adequately gnaw at it--once again proving my point about how there's no such thing as too much Sylvester.
Thanks so much for all your purrs and good wishes...I could feel all the good vibes and they were terrific.

Now, I need a nap.  


Happy Wednesday!

XX  Sylvester  XX


*Grayce got to keep her bladder stones.  hmph.

  1. I'm glad your ordeal is over, Sylvester and you are (mostly) not the worse for wear! Vets are always making weight comments, aren't they?

  2. Sweet Sylvester! You look wonderful, Big Boy--just the purrfect size! Also, that gross alert is misleading--that's the tidiest little incision I ever saw! I am glad your ordeal at the stabby place is over, but you should definitely continue to milk by looking at your Humans with your biggest sad eyes till they are guilted into giving you as many treats as you want.

  3. Thank goodness you are back safely. Stran had a little lump removed and the size of the incision was shocking! His fur grew back fast and he has been eating well to make up for the sudden weightloss ever since.
    We are pleased you don't have the cone of inconvenience - that would just be a source of mockery from the Loungemates, and best avoided.

  5. Wow, that is a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be! That must have been a heck of a skin tag!
    I agree, there's no such thing as too much Sylvester! And it got you out of having a cone of shame, so whoo hoo, have another snack! MOL

  10. Oh Sylvester, I am so sorry you had to go to the v-e-t. What an ordeal! But so glad it's all over and you don't have to go back to have stitches removed. You look very mighty mancatty with scar. But I sure hope your fur grow back soon :-)

  12. Sylvester, we're glad your home and getting back to normal. That was QUITE the ordeal! We didn't realize your incision would be that large, either. "Skin tag" left us with the impression of something small, maybe one or two stitches!

    Purrs for speedy healing.

  13. We're glad you weren't too traumatised at v-e-t place to be put off your dinner when you got home Sylvester - that would just have been the pits.

  29. We're glad you're home and are okay Sylvester! That must have been a huge skin tag! We think vets are taught to say things about weight even if they aren't true.
