I had thought I'd noticed a small bump on Star's spine but it wasn't always there and he never reacted to touching it so I wasn't that worried. Until last night. My husband and I both noticed not only a large bump (yes, large 2" x 2") on his spine about 2" down from his shoulders. Then he moved while we were petting him (still no reaction to be petted or poked) and we saw another small bump. I called our vet (they are open on Saturday until 1... go Brogli!!) They are the only vet I use when I've lived in Smurfreesboro. Part of this has to do with the fact that besides that fact that they rock, but when a friend of mine called her vet when her Queen was in trouble and delivering he told her the cat had just gotten into some beer. Riiiiiight. I told her to call my vet. He told her to met him at the office and proceeded to stay up all night trying to save momma & the litter. Mom had kidney failure but the kittens made it. He was so apologetic.
::sigh:: The vet was booked city today. Not unusual because even though they stay open until 7 there are still a lot of people who work during the week and need Saturday appointments. OTH I know that he starts feeling punk or otherwise gets worse before his appointment and someone will help. The hard part is that the kids' dad still hasn't been able to find a job yet. ::sigh:: I'm praying that a) he isn't too sick b) it won't take too many green papers (we're already on plastic for the month) and c) my ex will find a job soon.
Please send purrs and prayers for StarWalker BitCat the ComputerKitty and if you happen to have a green paper or two to spare, we have a PayPal button on the left. Thank-you SO much!!
