It's been a difficult day today as Socks has been in for dental surgery. He was anaesthetised (I mean, who'd want to get that near to a cat's teeth when they're awake?!) after some blood tests, and had all his teeth descaled, with one extracted. This is to try to help with the virus that he was diagnosed with a few weeks ago. He looks a bit like a punk rocker cat now with his various bald patches and bloody mouth, but he's already eating a bit. (Socks is like his mum; neither of us is good at being nil by mouth!) We're back at the vet's on Saturday for a post-op check and then again in a month to have some more blood tests as there were a few anomalies, but that might just be a result of his recent illness.
Here's a photo of my brave Socks with his trendy new knee patches:
I'll be back with a card tomorrow but I'm so sleepy that I'm just going to veg in front of the telly tonight - not like me at all!
