Oh, I am so annoyed with myself right now. I just realized that I completely forgot to take closeup pictures of Hoyt, Bill and Lafayette’s eyes, so I won’t have really good “before” pictures of them!
Ah well. I’m sure with all the pictures I’ve taken of these kittens, I can find some that will work as “before” pictures.
So yes, Hoyt, Bill and Lafayette are all currently sitting at the vet’s right now. Hopefully she’ll get a chance to get all three of them done – it will depend on what else she’s got scheduled for today, and how long the first surgery takes. Since Hoyt does have one “good” eye, he should be a quick one.
When I go pick them up this evening, I’m going to take Sam with me so she can take a look at him. I think he looks good and everything’s healing fine, but on the other hand I’ve never been through this before, so what do I know, right? I could use a little reassurance just to set my mind at ease, being the worrywart that I am.
(I actually was at the vet’s last night as well, taking one of my own cats to the vet. We started talking about the eye surgery, and I told her that my husband had coined the term “eyelips”, and she said that someone who works in the vet’s office had been calling them “liplids.” In fact, that’s what they wrote on Hoyt, Bill, and Lafayette’s cage cards when I took them in this morning!)
It’s certainly quiet upstairs today with only three kittens racing around.
Finally got a decent small pet scale for weighing the kittens (off eBay! I love eBay.), and when I took it upstairs to make sure Lafayette’s over 2 pounds, Hoyt decided he needed to be weighed as well. (Lafayette was at 2 pounds 6 ounces yesterday)
2008: Laundress Kitteh despairs at the task before her.
2007: No entry.
2006: No entry.
2005: I guess they haven’t spent enough time in carriers to know that they’re supposed to be scared of them.
