Sammy is Home! :)

Thank you, everybody!  Your purrs, prayers and good thoughts worked!  Our sweet senior kitty Sammy was discharged this afternoon, and is back home.  We're all relieved and overjoyed, even though Moosey's not sure why Sammy smells funny/different. :)

Sammy UTB
Sammy is understandably tired from his ordeal, and is currently sleeping in his mancat cave UTB (under the bed).  He has a bunch of meds (for nausea, upset stomach, an antibiotic, a pain med, etc.) to take for the next few days, but he's good about eating his pill pockets.  The mom and the dad will of course be watching like hawks to make sure he's still doing okay.  Generally, the vets are pleased at how his numbers improved once he got those fluids, and now we are just waiting for a few more test results.  Please purr and pray for Sammy as he continues his recovery, okay?

We are so grateful for all of you.  Your love, support and friendship have been -- and continue to be -- great sources of strength and encouragement.  Thank you!

Love and headbonks,

Dad Kevin, Mom Tracey, Sammy and Moosey

Oh, dear friends, we are so sorry we missed this Sammy episode. We haven't been around the last few days. We have been worrying about how much snow you might have gotten & whether you had electricity, not knowing the real worry was Sammy. We are relieved to read he is doing much better. Our beloved Lumpy was on home fluids, and fluids are easy to give at home if it comes to that. But we hope they can fix Sammy up without that and he will be 100% soon. We are purring for the big guy, and for you, Tracey & Kevin, cause we know how you worry and love him so. You were lucky to get him to the vet with the blizzard. Purrs, headbonks & prayers!
