Fireball had a surgery consult on Tuesday and surgery was scheduled for Wednesday. I was sad to say goodbye to his tail, but would rather have him with us without a tail.
I picked him up this morning and was surprised at how frisky he was once we got home. The look on his face when I picked up at the vet hospital…not so much. The e-collar (also known as the cone of shame) was just sad to see on him. It is what it is….he has to heal.
The pain meds we gave him this afternoon definitely sedated him. He has to stay inside to heal. I have a stickie note on the front door to remind everyone (even folks with a key) to ring the bell so Fireball does not slip out….sigh. Keeping an outdoor cat inside while wearing an e-collar. Feels like big job right now.
Happy that my Fire Edward Ball is home with us tonight. We will figure all the rest out!
