Minor Crisis

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.

Oh Poor Latte, and on your big day! Now you and Chey will have something to talk about years from now (like, Rememeber how I got too drunk at my bachelor's party, and was hung over the next day and somehow almost broke my tail and almost missed our wedding...).

Oh, Latte, my man, what a terrible thing to happen on your wedding day. But what a good thing it wasn't broken! But you'd still look dashing in a tux even with your tail in a cast!

This puts me in mind of the movie, "Sixteen Candles." Sam's sister was drugged up for her wedding and it was hysterical. Sorry, your situation is NOT funny! I feel awful that you're hurt, I really do. I know Chase and Kaze were beside themselves with worry! But I have to wonder if you'll do or say anything that you'll wonder about tomorrow? (LOL!) I'm sorry, maybe that was in poor taste. Please feel better soon my friend!

How do we join in on the wedding? I may be able to attend and would really love the opportunity to join my fellow kitties in celebration!

Cheysuli said...

Oh no Latte! I hope your tail starts feeling better. I hope you can still enjoy some nip after your meds though!

I am so sorry that you hurt your tail on your wedding day, Latte. Cheers to Chase for alerting the humans and getting you taken care of right away. At least your tail will get lots of rest on your honeymoon and should be all better by the time you get back.

Latte, congratulations on your wedding and best wishes to you and your lovely bride Chey.

We were so sorry to hear about your tail. Our mom just ADORES your tail. We're sure glad that it isn't broken, nor is it an abscess. We hope you feel much better soon!

Latte you did your bride proud by working through your tail problem. You need to take it easy for a few days, you and Chey can just chill. Get that tail back to normal.
