Sending positive thoughts for your little Max. It is easier to be sick or hurting yourself than to see your little four-legged kids going through pain.

Poor little kitty! I hope he heals up soon. I'm sorry your vet was so insensitive. Vets are not usually like that, in my experience with many pet and vets. Maybe he was having a bad day.

Hugs to you and I hope it's not cancer!

Ditto that peeing in the carrier was due to the anesthetic wearing off slowly in cats, so forget about it.

And the vet WAS an idiot...forget him too.

I'm sure Max will be uncomfortable for a couple-three days, and likely will not like the antibiotics. But give him lots of love while giving the meds--my cat doesn't like baths, but the last 2 times I washed him I kept rubbing all the right places and crooning to him and was careful not to splash and he actually was pretty good. And remember that after those tough ten days, he will be well on the road to recovery because of the surgery and antibiotics. Animals don't dwell on things tha way people do--remember them, yes, but not dwell on them. As the discomfort fades he'll be back to his old self in no time at all.

Thanks everyone! Max seems to be a little better this morning. DH even gave him his pill with no problems, so that's good. He's eating and up and walking around - brief walks I should say. DH brought him to bed with me before he left for work and he laid on my lap for a half hour!! It was wonderful. He was purring and licking me and it never felt so good to feel that sandpaper tongue on my hand. Then he went to his cat bed. One of many. I bought him a new one to. Heck, I'd buy him a tuna factory if I could afford it.

As for the peeing in his carrier, I wasn't upset about it, just surprised. I actually felt bad for him, because I know he didn't want to do it in there. I washed it out and it's drying in this horrible heat we're having today.

As for our vet, yes, he was a jerk (with me, not Max) through this whole process and I'm still quite surprised by his attitude. We've been going to him for about 5 years now and he's been great every time, so I guess I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but it's a little hard at the moment. I know people have bad days and what not, but sometimes (IMO) you have to push it aside and be there for your clients. I mean it's not like I spent 20 minutes with the guy, maybe 2-3 minutes. That's it. I think he could have sucked it up for my benefit. Oh well, I guess if it happens again then we'll have to look for another vet.

And I welcome any and all advice that you all have for me. Even if I've heard it before, sometimes we forget when we're in the middle of a crisis and being reminded - gently - is a good thing to help us stop and think a little more clearly.
