Ear, ear



Our Alfie goes into the vets tomorrow to have his Aural Haematoma deflated. In laymans terms he is going to have a large blood clot drained (icky). Pardon me if you are eating. Apparently, a blood vessel ruptures. Pardon me again if you are eating.

He's thoroughly fed up now. His ear is heavy and is sticking out at a right angle, rather than upright. It kind of looks like I've been using a bicycle pump on it. In the first photo, he just looks perplexed, but his left ear, as you look at it, should look like the one on the right. It's much lower down now than the photo shows. He even hates me breathing near it. I shall do a lot of staring out of windows tomorrow (Friday), waiting for his return when his daddy (oops, sorry, Robert) brings him home.

Lots of extra love and treats I see on the cards..............

awwww poor old Alfie, I know what a worry it is when our cats are feeling poorly. One of my cat's had an ear infection and it was so sad to see him holding his ear to the side. I hope that Alfie is all safely home and recovering well with lots of pampering xx Catherine

Thanks Catherine. He's home and feeling a bit sorry of himself! He has a drain in his ear and stitches, so I won't post pictures, its not for the squeamish!

Yes, he's getting lots of pampering! Back to the vets tomorrow, then again in ten days.

Hugs, Sarah x

Oh poor, poor baby! Give him a kiss from me, coz I would if I could ;O)

Babs I will most definitely give him a kiss from you! He's been so much more quiet of late. His ear gave a big 'deflate' today and we came home to a slightly red and white cat (icky!). Good sign though.

Hugs, Sarah x
