Callie's Chatter

Hi peoples! It's Tortie Tuesday so here I am in all my tortie goodness, hanging around on the teevee stand thingie.


The window perch is a great place to nap, as well as see what's going on outside when The Mommy won't let us out there to see it on our own.


It's been a little cooler the past couple of days, but we still can't go outside 'cuz Bugsy is still gettin' better from his surgery (and it's not fair if the rest of us go out if he can't).

Speaking of Bugsy, he had a bit of a setback over the weekend. Nothing too major, but The Mommy discovered on Saturday morning that he'd popped his stitches on his belly and she freaked a bit to see a hole in his belly (wouldn't you beans?). So after calling the V-E-T's office, who said to wrap his belly (are they kidding her? YOU beans try wrapping a kitty's belly!) and bring him in on Monday, she kept an eye on him over the weekend to make sure his guts didn't come falling out and back he went yesterday to get his belly stapled rather than stitched this time. Turns out he also has an inner set of stitches on the bladder where the surgery was done, and those are fine and healing well. So even though a hole in his belly isn't really a good thing, it wasn't as bad as The Mommy was imagining. He didn't have to stay overnight so is back home already and laying in The Mommy's lap as she types this for me.

That's all for me for today, Tortie Tuesday. Bye peoples!

Happy Tortie Tuesday, Callie! You're very pretty on your perch.

We're glad to hear that Bugsy is okay now. We can understand how stressful that must have been for the Mommy. Our Mommy panics! It's really embarrassing

Poor Bugsy, he's really been through it! We are glad he's better no and in his Mom's lap. (that's the bestest place to be for sure!)

The Creek Cats said...

Oh noes! Sorry to hear about the hole in Bugsy's tum tum! Our mom doesn't blame your mom for freaking out a little! Glad he's healing!

Maggie May had a spay and knee surgery at the same time when she was 4 months old. The vet put stitches in and she ripped all most off them out, knee and belly. Our mom freaked completely out! Had to lay down in the vets office and everything. ::whispers:: drama queen. The doc replaced them with staples and she never bothered those.

Bugsy has had quite a time of it, hasn't he? We are glad it was nothing serious, but staples sounds like No fun!

Happy Tortie Tuesday, Callie! You look beautiful today.

We are really glad Bugsy is OK. Our mom would have had a fit if she saw something like that!

P.S. Our mom really doesn't have either a favorite or disliked NFL Team anymore, but she's from D.C. so feels obligated to diss the Cowboys :). We watched a lot of their games last year - Franklin is a big fan of any kind of football.

Mom would have FREAKED out!
