Orestes is back at the hospital. Pneumonia at the very least. Perhaps a leaking/ruptured intestine and sepsis.  This is a very rough night.  I am on phone vigil duty.
And how is that working out for you?

OH, no....thinking of you all.

Scritches, sweet kitty...get well soon.

Poor Orestes! I'm so sorry to hear the news. The OMY crew sends healing thoughts, comfort purrs, and soft scritches to Ortestes and his humans; we hope he is well very soon.

Oh, the poor love! I'm so sorry.
I know it's a genus.

Thanks all.  Current report is pneumonia but no apparent sepsis.  We’ll here more at noon.
And how is that working out for you?

Good news that there is no sepsis! Still it would be scary to have him in the hospital with pneumonia.  Sending continued healing thoughts to the FishProf family. Hope you get more good news at noon.

Best wishes for your little ones, FishProf. Hope Orestes recovers well and gets back to paling around with Smolt soon.

Poor little Orestes kitty!  Let's hope he makes a quick recovery and is back to happy romping soon.

Elder Evil cat has not worn the cone-of-shame in about a week. He has decided to make up for lost time and lick the bejezzus out of himself. He coughed up two hairballs today. I have been brushing him to remove loose hair and I gave him some 'hairball helper', but damn!- this cat is something else! What? I don't know.

We also carefully removed his stitches (very carefully), since our vet has closed due to an outbreak. That was fun. All seems fine. *fingers crossed*

How's Orestes-the-kitten doing?

Any updates?

Still wishing him and the FP family well.

Orestes is still in the Hospital.  However,  the cardiac consult and the surgical intervention consults were both negative.  He's out of his oxygen tent and loving the attention.  I expect he will be home today.
And how is that working out for you?
