Hey everybuddy.  I don’t feel much like taking selfies today.  Y’see…the other day, I had a little “situation” which required me to be dragged to the emergency vet.  I had a…*whispering*…anal gland abscess.  That evil ER vet…the mom said she looked like she just graduted from high school…knocked me out and shaved my nether regions and did all sorts of nasty things to me.  And she shaved one of my front legs, too…so now it looks like I’m wearing a boot on one foot…a really big boot.  

The worst of it?  I gotta wear this lampshade on my head.  I wouldn’t mind wearing it if I felt like partying…but I don’t.  Wally keeps hissing at me and muttering something about an alien in the house.  

Hey, I wonder if I’ll get better Bird TV reception with this thing on??

    I hope you feels better soon.

    Big smooch from me and an obese one from Obeshiva MOL XXXX

  26. Ah, Ernie my boy, how well I know the horrors of this particular misery. She-devils in lab coats, Buddy, is what they are at the Stabby Place–and the very worst ones are the cutest and perkiest of all. As Hamlet reminds us, “The devil hath power t’assume a pleasing shape”!

    And that cone? Well, that’s just the cherry on the Sundae of Despair, Ernie. Tell you what, settle in for a nice long nappy (as far away from Wally and the Yellow-Haired Lady as you can get) and snooze away the day. Dream of stalking birdies and eating them up. Ahhhhhhhh, isn’t that better now?

  27. Oh, Ernie, you poor boy. You look miserable, sweetie. Lots and lots of healing purrs from Nicki and Derry. Nicki in particular can sympathize, since he goes every 3 months to have his anal glands expressed and has for years now. 🙁

    We all sure hope you feel much, much better soon!

  28. Poor Ernie. We ‘re purring and praying you’re all better real soon.

  29. Awww , poor you Ernie 🙁
    Me hope that you at least get better Bird TV reception with thing on your head !!


  30. Awww Ernie we are so sorry we hope you can soon come out of that cone!

  31. Ernie, I’m sorry you had a problem that needed the vet’s attention. Hopefully it wasn’t too bad and you’ll be feeling better in a day or two. I know that cone can’t come off soon enough, and I bet Wally will stop being hissy by the end of the day. Healing purrs to you.

  32. We hope you get better soon, and that space collar is in the garbage!

  33. Hoping you feel better soon Ernie!!! As for the ER Vet looking like she just graduated from High School? It’s all OUR frame of reference because WE are OLD 😉
    Remember…she is the VET, we aren’t………. 🙂

  34. You poor thing. I have only had abscesses on my neck and they are no fun there. The male person comes and gives me shots. I hate shots! (But I kick him so I get MY revenge – bwamaaaahahahaha)
    I hope you feel better soon.

  35. Geez, Ernie, that is no fun! My human and I read about your ordeal on Facebook – I hope that cone is about ready to be taken off by now!

  36. Aw Ernie you poor guy! So glad it wasn’t something more serious though…. those anal gland things are such a bother sometimes. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  37. We hope you feel better soon, Ernie!

  38. Poor Ernie! I am sorry to hear about your problem and hope it is soon all behind you!
    I have to have my blood stolen tomorrow and instead of shaving my leg, they shave my throat. Mum says I will need a scarf.

  39. I hope you’re feelin’ better. You are at least startin’ to feel better, aren’t you? Paws crossed that you are but I’ll express post you some healin’ purrs, just to be sure.

  42. oh Ernie, we feels SO BADLY for you! You look like one hot miserable mess…we sure hope you are starting to feel better, and eating again, too.

    Mommy gives Felix a pinch of miralax on deli ham or in tuna a couple times a week to grease his rails…it’s tasteless an he doesn’t suspect a thing!

    There was ER vet we saw once before and he looked like he just graduated from high school. I was quite worried but he was very knowledgeable, thankfully.
