You guys! I’m exhausted! Wanna know why? I had to spend the night in the hospital! I was having some pee issues and the medicines I was taking to help just weren’t doing the trick so the vet thought it would be best that I go to the hospital and get something called “IV fluids.”

Well, lemme tell you something. Being in the hospital is NO fun at all. Even though I stayed in the cat-only room, it was still noisy and bright. Someone came by and checked on me like every couple of hours. I hardly got any sleep. And the hospital food?? Yuck.

Not to mention…LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO MY LEG! It looks like I’m wearing one boot! I guess they have to steal your furs when you get IV fluids. But now I look ridiculous! Cod knows how long before my furs grow back.

All I can say…there’s no place like home.

  1. Ernie my pal I sure hope that uncomfortable night at the vet was worth it and those IV fluids helped you….sometimes the things they do to HELP us aren’t all that enjoyable BUT if they help….well….we can handle it right? Sending you some POTP – just in case you need it buddy. Rest up.

    Hugs, Teddy

  27. Oh, Ernie … we missed this, so sorry. We would have sent some sparkling red slippers to you, all you’d have to do would have been to click them together, make your wish and you’d have been homeward bound! We trust you are now safely there, and on the mend. Do you want some red and white stripey sox for that bare leg???
    Be well soon! JUNE and Ann

  28. We are glad you are back home and doing better, Ernie. Hey, you and Ava are housepanther twins! She had a dental yesterday, so she has a shaved leg, too. XO

  29. Oh Ernie, I’m so sorry you had this experience. Did they find why you didn’t pee? Was it because you were dehydrated? I hope it never happened again to you.
