Miffed ManCat Monday

Well Kitties...I have something TERRIBLE to tell you all today. My Mommy is a FIBBER! That's right, as in NOT telling the truth.

Here's what happened. I was supposed to go see the Kind & Gentle Dr. St. John on the 10th, but I got a reprieve...she was stuck in England by volcanic ash. (whatever that is!) Then I was going to have to go on the 14th, but she wasn't back yet! So I hoped that Mommy would forget all about it. Hey, I'm barely limping and I run around like my tail's on fire...a guy can hope.

Well, I'm looking around the Cat Blogosphere yesterday and I see Mommy posted thet I'd be going to the v-e-t on Tuesday, the 27th. OK, that gives me plenty of time to hide, right?


Mommy got home from work Sunday, and I'm bebopping around, tail in the air, all happy to see her when suddenly I see the PTU! Oh no! You know the PTU, stuff victim in, listen to prisoner sing the entire five hours to the vet. (Felix, it was only 15 minutes!) It was pretty busy at the v-e-t so Daddy took me out of the PTU and I sat on his lap like a good if I was going to move!

We finally went into the private torture room where I snooped around and whiffed all the strange smells. Nothing too interesting, so I hopped up behind Daddy on the chair and curled up to wait. And then Dr. St. John was there! I remembered her so I didn't growl or hiss. She felt my knee and watched me walk and gave me some GREAT pettings. According to her my knee is doing great! I'm healing a little slower than she expected, but my patella feels firmly in place. My weight was perfect and my heart sounds were good. So unless something happens, like the limp getting worse (which it won't--you should see me run around like a wild thing) I'm a free ManCat! Mommy is going to start me on Cosequin for Cats this week, we'll see how that goes.

So thanks to all of your purrs and the fabulous Dr. St. John, I'm well on the road to my regular Ornery Ornj self!

Love and Headbutts, Felix

    We only go about a mile to our v-e-t but we complain all the way too!

  11. THEY are so incredibly devious when it comes to those vet visit!!!! I got stuffed into my carrier and carted off this morning, and you bet I sang the entire 45 minutes each way! You have to make a statement!

    So glad your knee is healing well, buddy!


  12. The beans can be very sneaky when it comes to getting us into the PTU and taking us to the vet.

  13. Felix this is great news about your knee.
    I do not like going in the car and I do not like the vetplace either. You were brave


  14. Yay!!!! The fabulous Dr St John came over in time to see you and give you the best news about your knee.

    Me and Charlie are so so pleased that you are healing better than ok and that you are now on the road to being your ornery self!!


    Take care

  15. Hip Hip Horray!!!! Woohoo!!!! Just take it easy because we don't want you to rehurt the poor knee!

  16. *yahoo*
    Felix that was wonderful noos!


  17. Yay fur getting a good vet report, boo fur da mom fibbing and taking yoo der against yoor will. Sometimes we think moms is da sneekiest beens on earth...den daddy will grab us and stuff us in da PTU!

  18. We are glad to hear you are doing so well. ~AFSS

  19. Glad you're better. You're right though, your mum is a sneak!!! But hey, she does care :-)

  20. Hi Felix! I'm sorry you have a hurty knee and had to go to the VET. That stinks. Especially when you have no warning and your mommy FIBBED to you. Not cool at all. We are glad to hear you are well enough to beebop around!

    Last Weds., the stinky baby was at my grandparents so I am chillin and nappin on the couch with mommy when she notices my "dew claw" was way out of hand. She jerked me out of a nice sunbeam slumber, shoved me in the PTU and took me to the VET to get clipped (my beans do mine once a month but this was crazy big). My evil alter ego always raises his ugly head there so it was entertaining to all.

    I'm glad you have your own bloggy now! I can't wait to hear all about all of your adventures. My goodness 12 kitties! My mommy and daddy would have 12 too, but my daddy is allergic. Even to me! But he loves and snuggles on me anyway, then takes his allergy meds.

    I hope you'll visit again! We are waaaaaaaay behind in commenting and updating our links, but we promise we visit everyone who comments. It sometimes takes a week or so tho

  21. Hurrah for your fixed patella Felix! We are so glad it is doing okay and you are performing all your normal duties.
    But I know exactly what you mean about the shock and betrayal of being put in the box of doom. I also sing the whole way to the vet - during the long drive through the Finnish forest and past the lakes I let my feelings be known. I am a silent Suomalainen mies (Finnish man) at all other times though.
    I love my cosequin treats but Aila-sisko doesn't like them. Her naughty kneecap seems very strong though and the vet is pleased with us both. We could still do with a higher protein diet with lots of fish, but Äiti seems to think expensive cat food is sufficient....
    Take care of yourself and don't run around too much!

  22. Phew we are glad to hear that your knee is on the mend! Our brother Kenji hates being stuffed in the carrier and he puts out his all-4s to block the opening. haha! It takes 2 humans to put him in. He has the most pitiful meow reserved specially for when he's in that box!
    Purrs, Keiko Kenji & Pricilla

  23. It's very humiliating, that PTU thing.

    So glad that your knee is better!

  24. It sounds like it was quite an ordeal for you! But we are glad that it resulted in a good report! We had to biggify your picture, because we thought you had two tails for a moment :P

  25. That last photo is BRILLIANT!!! You look so cute my friend!

  26. Great to see that you are doing better Felix. Love the photo of you looking out of the box - I love boxes too.

  27. Such good news ond your knee healing well, Felix. But your poor Mom being stuck because of the vulcanic ash! We hope she could make the most of her prolonged stay though.
    Purrs, Siena & Chilli

  28. Your healing well!! Is that someone else's tail behind you, cause that can't be your leg, can it?

  29. We are glad to hear your leg is doing well and most of all GLAD to hear that your lungs and MEOW box were working at 200% on the trip to the VET.
    It is important that the two leggers know we are not happy.
    Madi and Mom

  30. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde all go "Hurray!!" and then Thomas says, "I'm sorry you had to see the vet, but at least it was good news! Does your vet give you greenies treats? Our vet give us greenies treats so it's not tooooo bad going to see them. But don't do anything to make you hafta go see a vet again!!"

  31. Fank goodness for that Felix! We are so relieved!

  32. Good news on the vet report!
    Beware the PTU.

  33. Felix the treachery of humans knows no bounds. You can't drop your guard for even one minute.

    We are really happy that your patella is doing well and you are full of energy and not limping. Just don't overdo things mate.

Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
