Good Thoughts, Please.

DSC_0160

I just got back from dropping Bean off at the vet. She's went in for a teeth cleaning, so she'll be spending the day there.   Because anesthesia is involved in the procedure, this meant no midnight snacks or breakfast, so she was not a happy Bean today.  She kept yelling and yelling and I just kept apologizing, hoping she would understand and relax.

She's in very good hands and with people she's very comfortable around, so there's no need to worry, but that doesn't stop me from worrying, of course. I'm a worrier.

It's really weird not having her in the house right now. You can tell Wylla is a bit confused by the absence of her sister and the disrupted morning routine.   She's sitting in the window like she normal does after breakfast, but she's on Bean's side of the window, and she's not looking outside, she's looking around the living room and at me with a face that needs answers. It's kind of breaking my heart that I can't offer an explanation she can comprehend.  It's going to be a long day.

If you wouldn't mind, please think good thoughts for our dear girl.

Thank you!

  1. Sending lots of love and calm your way. Always hard when our little ones are out of our hands. Peace.

  2. Aw, I'm sorry. Our two kitties went through this a couple of weeks ago. They ended up having to have a few extractions (hopefully Bean won't) but they had to stay overnight and we were up all night worrying. Good thoughts and prayers for your little family coming your way!

  3. We are thinking good thoughts right now, Laurie. Please let us know when the Queen Bean returns home with her pearly whites polished. (Because we are worriers too.) Wylla will give her a good sniffing when she returns!

  4. Ramona needs dental work probably in September and it will be difficult because she is so terrified to be anywhere but home with me. She needs at least one extraction and there is no way I can leave her overnight. Best wishes for you and Bean.

    Happy thought to Bean! Love Buddy, Tiger, Mr. Mistofelees and Debra.

    PS. Buddy understands. He went to the dentist a few years ago. No midnight snacks and breakfast is just too UNFAIR! Hope you get a really yummy super.

  8. All best to the Bean and her family today: I hope she's first on the list and will be home as early as possible! Here's to our VIP getting the Very Important Pussycat treatment.

  9. Sending hugs and positive thoughts. I worry the same way - I actually cry when I drop our cats off at the vet. Anesthesia makes me nervous.

  10. Dear Charlene,
    I had my teeth cleaned for the first time at 11yrs young and 1 tooth pulled. It was scary but I am fine now. Tell Mom & Wylla not to worry too much as they will be laughing at you when you come home. It can take a day or two to stop looking and feeling loopy while staring off into space and walking like a drunken sailor. Remember that revenge is best served between 3am and 5am, hair ball style!
    Love Reilly in CT

    1. This is so true! My 2 both acted really strange for a few days afterwards. Cocoa didn't even purr for us until a full week later. She must have been feeling pretty bad but with 6 teeth pulled one would I guess!

  11. Good thoughts for all of you! It's hard to be the patient, the worried parent, OR the confused sister...

  12. Sending good thoughts to all of you. Hope the procedure goes well and Bean is soon back where she belongs.

    Your cats get midnight snacks???

    1. I hope my cat doesn't hear of that 'purrk'.
      He is pushy enough when supper time approaches!

  14. I, too, am a worrier. Sending good thoughts your way from Virginia. At such worrisome times I often tell myself, "by this time tomorrow, this will all be over." Hope that all goes well and things settle into a "normal" routine soon.

  15. My cats went to the vet today. For the most part they're in good health. Sadly the one who is overweight is even more so and the one who is underweight is even more so. They're running the semi-annual blood tests on my underweight girl to see if her kidney disease is worse before they can clean her teeth and administer her vaccinations. I'm not sure how to encourage one to eat more while encouraging the other one to eat less.

    1. Bad news. Lena's (seen in 2:26 of Charlene's birthday video on the left) kidney disease has been advanced to stage three. I'm taking her in Monday to learn how to keep her hydrated and get some pills to encourage her to eat more. But at this point it doesn't look good. The vet said she has maybe a year left. She's not that much older than Charlene. I'm hoping for the best. At least Lena knows how much she is loved.

    2. We hope for the best for you all.

  16. p.s. She really is a gorgeous kitty.

  17. Aww... it's so rough, even when it's a "routine" visit, isn't it? (My 5-year old gray girl gets so nervous at the vet that she trembles and her paw pads sweat, poor thing.)

    Sending happy thoughts for Charlene and all you guys!!

  19. Feel better fast Bean! Hope your mom and dad give you extra in your food bowl tonight. You deserve it after being *starved* for so long :D

  20. I can't get over how SPARKLY her eyes are. That 2nd pic from the bottom!!

  21. Wylla- Zoubi sends her best to YOU because she is also confused and worried and sits at the front door and won't leave it for hours waiting for her sister cat. So Zoubi totally understands you and hopes you see your Bean soon- even if she smells funny! The rest of us send our best hugs for Bean and her humans. :-)

  22. Sending All my positivity to Queen Bean...♥♥♥

  23. Love and peaceful thoughts for Queen Bean and her family. Disruption of any routine is difficult, but the absence of one little furry being is quite disruptive, no matter how temporary.

  24. I hope everything goes well with the exam/cleaning! Guessing she's with Sue and Sarah? If so, she's in the best of hands :)

  25. It's times like this that I always wish I spoke Cat. Much sympathy to all of you, but especially to Bean (I hate the dentist [wry g]).

    ReplyDelete
  26. Aw, I'm sorry you had a day of worrying. I know how that is, since I'm a worrier, too. I hope Bean is home now, and getting lots of cuddles from her mom, dad, and sister.

  27. Please tell us everything went okay!

    1. That's great. I bet she's glad to get home. Did Wylla greet her or was suspicious about how her big sister smelled?

    2. I'll be telling the full story next week.
