Jack Update

Magical Drama Queen Roxy!
We just got him back!

Summation: His teeth were for shit. He did not have a broken jaw! It's just that the abscess was so awful that it shifted one of his fangs to the point where he couldn't close his mouth because it wouldn't line up.

So he needed teeth pulled, poor kitty. But that is all he needed. They ran a bunch of tests, so we have fingers crossed that there's no underlying horrible thing.

But the cost was actually, miraculously, only ~$500. So we have this covered with the donations we already have. No auction necessary, and I'm taking down the PayPal button. I'll write WTD with the prompts I currently have, but won't be taking more for now. We actually have $546 in PayPal, but we can put the excess toward his followup appointment.

Knock wood that he doesn't have anything horribly wrong besides that. But they seem to think this could be all. I won't really relax until we have the test results, of course! But there is reason for cautious optimism.

Thank you all so much for helping out in all the ways you helped out. More updatery when we get test results back.

EDIT: He is sitting in my closet - his Safe Place - all whoa, I am so stoned right now.

That is such great news. Congratulations.

OH HUZZAH!

This is the second cat I've heard of in the past couple of weeks that's needed emergency dental work, and it was just bad teeth.

Apparently, tooth removal has gotten cheaper/easier in the last 10 years *stares at the little grey cat who has no teeth at all behind her canines, and not all her incisors either*

Wouldn't it be nice if they communicated that they were in pain before, y'know, needing the ER and tricking vets into thinking that they have a broken jaw? Cats, I tell you.

Poor Kitty.

Our Siamese ended up looking positively vampiric after his tooth removal.

So glad to hear that!! Here's hoping the test results don't show anything else funky and that Jack is feeling back to his normal self ASAP!

Awww, poor brave stoner kitty. I'm glad he's okay. :)

That's great news! I'm glad he's alright.

Yay! Hurray for things being way better than they could have been.

I am glad Jack is feeling better and that this did not take a bigger chunk of the family wallet. I remember having a cat who needed teeth out. He was not a happy cat...

Good news! I hope he's all better soon.

I know, right? Max was worse off than they'd thought, and that seems to be the way of things. I was actually momentarily speechless.

Yay, yay, yay for Jack being home and A-OK.
20th-Apr-2011 02:19 am (UTC)
Aww, poor fuzzle. Glad to hear he is home & fingers crossed for everything else.
20th-Apr-2011 02:23 am (UTC) - Yay!
Very glad to hear that the Jack is home and ok.

Sending good thoughts for his ongoing recovery.
