Latest on Maxi

Updated: 4:15 p.m. Monday, April 13, 2009
Maxi’s temperature is still very high. 106.2 Our vet has started the IV line back up, and will be giving Maxi fluids overnight. They have cleaned and dressed the wound from where the toenail was dug in. They have started him on a broad spectrum antibiotic. Unfortunately, he is going to have to spend another night away from home, and the vet says he is very “down.”

I am going to try and make it to their office before they close tonight (it’s 30 miles from where I work) to see him and give him a pep talk. As the vet told me, “We’re not out of the woods yet.”

I won’t post until tomorrow when I have more news. I think both “da dadee” and I, and the rest of the kitties who miss their “King” will try and get some rest. Thank you all for kindnesses and purrs.

30 miles? Maxi is one loved kitty! We're sure a visit from da mommee will lift his spirits and help him get through another night at the vet.

Cheer up and get well, Maxi! Mommee's coming.

Oh no! We just read about Max. I posted to the cat blogosphere news page so many many healing purrs and prayers will be heading Max's way ASAP.

Bendrix and I are turning our purr buttons up to 11 for Max. We are also sending comforting purrs to your mommy. She shouldn't feel guilty. We kitties are very very good about hiding our pain and she did what she could the minute she knew.

Your mommy loves Max very much and he knows it so let that comfort her. purrrrrrrs

Wow we missed all of that due to the stupid mom bean not being around to comment much. We're so glad that Maxi is doing alright and made it through all he did.

As our vet says- Cats are tough, and i'm sure maxi will pull through just fine. Even though it's incredibly scary... i'm praying that he'll be ok.

And now at least you know what's going on right? and sometimes when you look back and think how obvious things were with signs... honestly- if you didn't pick up before- they weren't that obvious! animals are good at hiding things from us. Some better than others. Don't get yourself down ok?

We all love you, and will be thinking of you today.
