Momma’s still wiped out, so I’m taking over as reporter again today. Earl Grey came home last night. The V-E-T said he was a really good patient. He has three different kinds of pills (antibiotic, pepcid, and a pain medicine), plus eye drops. He has to be a cone head until he gets his stitches taken out. He has special kibble to eat and he gets 5-7 pieces of kibble every two hours for the next day or so. Then he can work up to eating more after that. Momma can slowly start adding his regular kibble back in later in the week. The V-E-T tech said they were laffin’ and laffin’ (thanks, Jeter!) at him because when they first let him have food they gave him a few pieces of kibble and some stinky goodness because they didn’t know which one he would eat. They said that he took his paw and swiped the stinky goodness into his water bowl and chowed down on the kibble. I think I probably would've gone for the stinky goodness. We don't get that at home.
He has to stay in Titus’ old prison box. Momma was planning on keeping him in the bathroom, but the V-E-T said that it would be too tempting for him to jump on stuff and he can’t jump around just yet. Momma got the crate all sterile and put a litter box in there and a blankie and a water bowl. I checked it out and it seems pretty comfy. I might move in for a few days after he’s done living there. Momma also got him some disposable litter boxes and she put the extras in the laundry room. They make a really comfy bed. I took a nap in them last night.
EG's got a good appetite and he’s drinking his water. He did have the squirts last night a couple of times. The V-E-T said that a couple of times is ok, but if he still has them today he needs to get looked at again. He was naughty and jumped up on the piano two times last night even though he wasn’t supposed to. Momma couldn’t stop him because she was up to her elbows in his stinky poo. Hee hee
Somehow this morning before Momma got up, he untied his e-collar and took it off. Momma and Daddy had to chase him down and get it back on him. Then while they had a hold of him, they put in his eye drops. Momma said she shouldn’t have to do that kind of stuff before she has her morning coffee. She also said she’s going to call the V-E-T and see if her and EG can camp out in the waiting room for the next week so they can help her with EG’s medicines.
EG smells real funny, but I haven’t growled at him or even hissed. Momma said she was proud of me for being such a good girl. But what she doesn’t know is that I’d be a-hissin’ and a-growlin’ at him if he wasn’t in that giant prison box. Heh heh
That’s about it for now. Momma thinks that EG is going to have to go to work with her at the end of the week. She thinks he’ll be feeling better by then and need lots of supervision. Her boss said that he’s got a prison box EG can borrow so she doesn’t have to haul T’s prison box back and forth.
PS – T is doing much better. He’s had some huuuuuge poops, but other than that he’s back to normal. He’ll be back to blogging soon. Man, being the only healthy furry kid in the house is a huge responsibility. I think I’m going to take a snooze now.
PS2 - I told Momma we should've waited to post EG's pics til today, so we could participate in Tummy Tuesday.
