More Treats Please

2nd UPDATE:  Praline needs surgery.  The vet thinks it is just a cyst and not cancerous.  However, the cyst will get bigger and because of the location, it could effect her breathing, the vet wants to remove it while it is small and it won't involve major surgery.  Her surgery is scheduled for Tuesday morning and will cost over $400 because of the delicate location.  Keep those purrs coming.

UPDATE:  Taking Praline to the vet this morning.  That little white dot beside her nose is a bump, which is something new.  I'll update you when I get back.


Mom works at her home computer a lot when she gets home at night.  She trained (tricked) me into coming back here with her at night by keeping a bag of treats on the computer table.  Now, at night, when she gets home, I rush back to the home office before she can get there because I know I can get some treats!


So, in the words of Oliver Twist - "More Treats, Please!"

That was smart of your Mom. I work on the computer after work, too. Sometimes Herman joins me, most times not. I think you should get lots of treats, Praline.

Poor Praline! Little does she know what's coming. I sure hope everything goes smoothly, and that's it's just a minor bump in the road (as well as on her nose).

I'm sure these things are fairly common as kitties get older.

In the meantime, feed her treats, treats and more treats.

We'll be purring for her, 'cause we all loves Sweet Praline, here.

We hope all goes smoothly at the nasty place next week Praline - you will be back with your mom before you know it - anyway you can keep giving the "look at me I'm poorly" look and get extra treats from her.

Kea said...

Oh, we're sending purrs that all goes well next week. You have my sympathies re. the vet costs--I still haven't been able to pay off Nicki's dental last November and Annie's dental last month!

Good luck, sweet Praline. You'll be okay, sweetie!

Lorianna said...

Oh no Mommy Paula and Praline! I will hold you in my thoughts for sure! I'm sure the VET will get that bump off nice and easy. Please don't be scared Praline honey. You will get lots of treats when you get home. Your little nose will be good as new!
Mommy Paula, I hope you are okay. I know how worried you must be. VET bills are stressful, I know. $300.00 for Cody's hairball blockage and $178.00 for Cricket's blockage. Yikes! I'm sure we can help if you need it, okay?
Lots of Hugs,
Lorianna
