Surgery Complete!

Wow, fank you all for your caring words and purrs, Miss Cake was truly touched to hear she has so many wunnerful furriends.  Her ladygardenectomy went fine, but she is apparently not good wif anasthesia.  She was still asleep for teh first two hours we was home, and when she wake'd up she was in a verreh bad mood indeed.  She started running around like a crazypants, just careening headfirst into everyfing.  She loudly demanded waters and foods, which we was told not to gives her til morning, but she would not stop screaming so my mommeh gave'd in and she got just a lot of waters and just a little dry Instinct crunchies.  Wait til you sees her trying to get teh foods wif teh cone on her head - sad, but HILARIOUS.  Since she was having such a hard time, my mommeh make'd teh mistake of trying to halps her by feeding her teh kibbles one by one, and talk about biting teh hand that feeds you, woo, Audrey put teh bitey on my mommeh like I has never see'd before.  One top toof and one bottom toof all teh way through a finger.  We thoughted we was gonna needs eben more stitches in this house last night, sheesh, but it finally stopped bleeding and now my mommeh says it is just realleh hurty.  My sis-ter says she is sorreh about it now.  She says she did not know what she was doing.  Coming out of teh sleepies she just felt realleh wild and insane and could not controls herself, and since she had been deprived of foods and waters for 24 hours she thoughted she was starving to death and just violently tried to get any piece of foods she could.  Now she is definitely more collected.  She spent teh night trying to sleep sitting up in teh corner of teh heatie bed.  (It is too hard for her to lie down wif that thing on her head.)  She was verreh quiet and subdued this morning, extremely unusual for her, and she letted my mommeh take teh bandage off her leg from teh IV.  And then she did somefing miraculous.  She purred, and made biscuits!!!  Now, making biscuits is a normal happeh fing I does all teh time, and most of you too, but Miss Cake has neber once make'd biscuits.  Eber.  Not a single time.  So my mommeh almost cried at what must have been Audrey's heartfelt "fank you, mommeh" for removing teh uncomfortable bandage.  My mommeh lefted her all set and snuggled in teh heatie bed today before she left for teh Work Place.  It is my job to watch over her til she comes home.  I do not minds keeping an eye on teh baby, howeber, I will admit I is completely afraid of that thingie on her head.  When she gets near me wif it I growls and backs away.  I fink it is hurting her feelings, but I can not halps it, I does not means to.  So I will keeps a eyes on her from a distance today.  We has pikshers and video but no chance to load onto teh computer yet so those will be coming soon, just wanted to post this update for all our furrends who left such wunnerful wishes for her!

  1. Poor Audrey, what an ordeal! We're glad she's home and recovering now. We're very surprised the vet let her come home before she was fully awake, though--neither of the two clinics the mom has used here would do that, but maybe it's a new protocol? We're just glad she's okay!

    Purrs for a speedy recovery!

  2. Well, because of what happened to me wif my own ladygardenectomy, my mommeh wanted her home as soon as possible so we could observes her ourselfs. Overnight stays are now a no-no in my mommeh's book. I will write up mine ladygardenectomy story soon too.

  4. Sweet Audrey, it does sound like she was very dicombobulated from the anesthesia and maybe the pain from the surgery. Mommy, cat bites can give bad infections, so any sign of redness in that hand, you take yourself to your own VET pronto.

  5. Wow, Minnie was cripping around all sore after her lady gardenectomy--no way would she run around crazypants! Of course, she was probably older than Miss Audrey at the time, since she was a stray before she came to live with me.

  6. Poor Audrey Cake, and poor mommy for the bitey (she might need antibiotics as cat puncture bites can be serious especially near a bone) and poor you for being scared of the cone thingy. Sometimes cats react to the pain medication paradoxically, that is by becoming hyper instead of quiet. It would be good to tell your vet of her behavior in case they can use something different if she ever needs to have anesthesia again.

  7. Wow that is quite a tale. And #1 says she can imagine how much your Mommy's finger hurt.

    Our vet does not let us go home until we are properly awake and we did not get cones at al, but maybe all vets are not the same. We are purring that BA will continue to make biscuits forever!

    Purrs,
    Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan

  9. I'm glad Audrey is feeling better now! We are a bit worried about your mom's bite. Make sure she watches it closely, okay?

  10. We are glad Audrey is home and recovering from her Ladygardenectomy. When we were little and had our hoohaa-ectomies, we were the same and were running off the walls all night. The Beans turned the lights right down thinking it might calm us down but we kept on running right across them as if they weren't there.
    We hope your mum's finger is okay.

  12. I am glad Audrey came through the operation okay, but wow, I've never heard a reaction to anesthesia like that! Your human should mention it to the vet in case she ever needs to be put under again.

  16. We'z glad Audrey got thru da ladygardenectomy okay. We would tell da vet about da reaction when she waked up, tho mom sez dat sometimes pain will make yoo really cranky and crazy. Did yoor mom clean da bite right away? Our mom makes up a pan of water wif bleach in it to soak bited hands in, even when she is out in da "field". Really, she haf a big tupperware container she puts water and bleach in "just in case" when she goes out to catch feral kitties! Would yoo beleeve she haf gotten bited right thru her "bite safe" gloves.

  18. Please tell your mommie to be very careful with her bitey finger.

    I once sunk a tooth into my mom's finger...it was a love bitey...but my mom had to go to the urgent care human vet to get a shot and some antibiotics...and was told that kitty bites to the finger can turn serious if not treated.

  19. We're so glad all went well, except for the finger incident anyway!
    We hope she can get out of that cone soon!

  20. Oh, your poor mom! Her finger must be so painful. We hope she takes good care of it so it doesn't get infected.

    And Audrey, it doesn't sound like a good experience for her.
