Tuffy’s Terrible Tragedy

Thursday I brought Tuffy the Cat to a new vet for a haircut. His old vet charged about $500 for an examination, sedation, and a shave. I thought the new vet would be less expensive.

Unfortunately Tuffy freaked out, bit one of the assistants, and scratched the vet and another assistant. To calm him down, they gave him TWO heavy shots of sedation.

By the time I picked him up, he was an unconscious, ball of crumbled fur in the bottom of his carrier.

Although now, 24-hours later, he’s conscious but can’t walk nor barely stand. He’s eaten very little and only drank a tiny bit of water.

He doesn’t seem to be suffering and responds to pets. Mostly, he just sleeps. Heart-breakingly, last night he crawled across the bed and sprawled onto my lap.

All I do now is pet him every few minutes and watch him sleep. And wait.
