Smokey - Home

Got Smokey home and settled - he is a big boy weighing in at 15 pounds of solid steel grey fur baby. His tongue sometimes hangs out because both of his botton canines were gone - the tooth that was broken and infected was an upped canine it was removed the gum treated and dissolving stitches were used - he was given a pain injection and a long acting (2 week) antibotic injection. They gave me liquid pain meds to give him if he will allow it twice a day for 3 days starting tomorrow. He was neutered, nothing exciting there. Given his rabies and 4-way distemper shot. He was tested and came back negative for FIV. Dr Smith estimates him to be on the older side of 5 to 8 years old. His eyes have some issues, one is cloudy and could have some damage from ulcers or something - she gave me a perscription for eye cream but before I have it filled I want to see how he does with the pain meds - if he lets me give him pain meds then Ill try for the eye cream. They sent home crushed worm medicine for his food - Ill try that tomorrow night or the next once he has an appetite. They also found that his ear drum is swollen, red and irritated which is most likely causing the head tilt, could be infection (the antibotic should take care of that) or it could be a pollop or tumor all of which can cause the deafness. They dont seem to think if it is a pollop or tumor that it is painfull - more like having vertigo sometimes. They are hoping its just some infection.

Currently he is in the room, in the dog crate - he has a clean towel, litterbox, wet and dry food and water. I did pet him which he wasnt sure about but didnt try anything. I kinds felt like he liked it. So for now he is warm, and mostly comfortable - I will take some pictures of him in his "house" to post in the morning. I think tonight will be an early night for me since I was up at 3am :)


  1. Hey, Smokey, just kick back and relax for a few days. You'll feel a lot better after that.

    Smokey sounds like a good looking kittie, who's had a rough go of things recently.

  2. Kudos to You ! I'm so glad to hear Smokey is home and settled : )
    And he is a kind of cute to let you pet him. He might wait for long time for love. That's why he feel comfortable with you.
    Now I think it's the time for me to purrs for him to get better so soon. And purrs for you as well. This one is kind of purrs I normally do, and then mom can go to sleep.
    Take Care

  3. Smokey we are sending healing purrs for you. It sounds as if you are doing well.
