On the mend...

Someone is feeling more like their little turkey self!

After a biopsy of his ear (x3 areas), blood draws, and a tooth extraction, Turks is almost good as new. The vet believes his ear and nose were affected because of either a food allergy, mosquito allergy or an autoimmune disease. Since nothing else appeared out of ordinary with the tests, and we did change food twice in the two weeks that lead up to the problem, it was most likely a food allergy. He's off his antiobiotics and very much back to his tricks. Like small box, big kitty syndrome.

I sure don't miss the poor guy wearing a cone for 72 hours straight, and being so lethargic. But, one teensy upside was our daily snugglefests.



Kitty hugs kinda rule. Said the crazy cat lady.

  4. So glad he's doing better and up to his old tricks! My kitties have absolutely hated wearing a cone the few times they've had too, and I'm sure your little Turkey is so glad to have it off.

  6. @Kim Thank you Kim! I'll take all the cuddles I can get. He was quite spoiled with extra treats it's a bit hard to break that habit! But cuddles I can do!
