Hi everyone, this is Latte' Meowmy here. I know you're all excited about the wedding and so is Latte. Unfortunately Latte had a little accident this morning. As you all know he loves to curl his adorable tail and as he was sitting in the window sill I noticed it was just hanging. Then I noticed there was a lump at the base. Both Chase and Kaze were sniffing his tail oddly and when I touched the base there was a lump and Latte cried out in pain. Of course I called the vet right away and knowing Latte they brought him right in.
The good news is it is NOT broken. I was sure it was. There is a large hard swelling at the base but the bones structure is normal and fine. All other vitals are good too. So the verdict is soft tissue damage and he is on his old favorite Metacam for pain and inflamation for 5 days. That medicine has lasted us through 4 Latte crisises now!
Everyone at the vet was very worried about them because they love him very very much and tried to keep me calm. Lattemust have hurt it playing with Kaze and hit it on a table or chair or something. The strangest thing is that Chase alerted us by crying at our door and he never does that. He was VERY vocal and told us something was wrong.
So Latte is now resting on his pain meds and resting up for the wedding later. Hopefully in a few days it will feel better. He is already curling it at the tip more.
