Dr Glaze just phoned. Maxi’s fever has broken and is down to 102.98!!! If he stays like that through the day, he gets to come home tonight. He is still depressed in the cage, but he actually gave Dr Glaze head-butts this morning… and he has not done that since he got sick.
I want to celebrate, but Dr Glaze is cautious too, and does not want to “jinx” anything. I am sure there will be a recovery period where he’ll be on his antibiotics, and possibly later, his new spondylosis meds.
I cannot think of a better birthday present for Dr Tweety and the rest of us.
May all of you know that we were in your capable paws. Does purring work??? You better believe it does!!! And you all have done your work. Some of you even got up from your own post-surgery and sick beds to wish Maxi well.
Don’t worry about auctions for us just yet. We’re taking this one step at a time. But I tell you what, we can certainly give back to the CB community the kind of energy you have shown us.
I will be donating, in Maxi’s name, some vintage jewelry items to help in future raffles. I’ll coordinate this with ML & KC. So maybe we can all have a little cushion when it comes to helping our fellow feline friends. Hopefully, none of us will need it..
After all, we couldn’t have done it without you.
Madeline, Tom, Dr Tweety, Iris, Delilah, Auntie Stinkie, and of course, Maximillian the Bad Mad Burr-man!
