Bob’s Doing Well!!!

Published by Meghan under Babble,Bob

I got to pick up Bob yesterday. The vet had called in the morning and said she was amazed at his recovery, and she had no doubts about sending him home. So saturday afternoon I went to pick him up. after hugging about every vet person i ran into, and hugging his vet about 10 times and crying a little at how thankful i am (she was hugging me and crying too), i got to see bob.

he has a cone on his head and his rear end looks absolutely horrible, but other then that? he’s actually acting like nothing is wrong! they showed me how to clean him up since he’ll be in a cone for 2 weeks until the stitches come out. on the way home, he peed all over himself, so the first half hour home was spent with me crying (i felt SO bad) and trying to clean all the pee off of his fur.  :( after we got through that, and i called the vet a couple times to double check things, we were fine. he’s been using his litter box and peeing (a LOT more then he had been!), he’s eating like a champ, and he’s purring and snuggly. he looks so pathetic with his cone on, and he smells horrible (i’m going to clean him up some more today), but besides that? he’s acting totally fine!!!

we were concerned about little man’s response to bob wearing a cone. when he first saw bob, he walked up to him, gently pet him, said “Bob!” and then left him alone. good good little man!!!

we had set up a “recovery room” for bob to stay in for the first few nights in our laundry room. litterbox, food, and a snuggly bed all in one place. i got him set up in there, and stacked two baby gates in the door, and went to bed. ry got home from his show at 3am, and bob met him at the door. he had scaled the gate with his cone on and everything.  so ry just left the gates down and let him out around the house. he figured he was acting fine, and it’s better to just let him out then have him scaling a gate over and over.

this morning, he’s acting even better! he met me at the stairs when i came down and led me to the kitchen for his breakfast. he gobbled that down, went downstairs, used the litter box, and then came upstairs and rolled around on the floor begging for some snuggles.

Hello, Ladies!!!  MeOWWW!!!!!

mmmmmm…..breakfast….

thank you all so much for the warm wishes. i think our sweet little bob is being a super trooper, and will heal up just fine. i think he’s just super excited that he can PEEE instead of dribble. hahaha

Nurse, it’s time for my sponge bath!!!
