mauled kitten update & Labor Day festivities

My poor baby is recovering from his surgery yesterday, when his seroma was drained and the surgical drain inserted. Since he came home, he has been very low energy and petulant, but thankfully he has had an appetite. This afternoon he started to perk up a tiny bit and came out of his bed to be with his littermates. He's still on three medications (one antibiotic, one eye medication, one anti-inflammatory/painkiller).

We (meaning Iris Uber Alles and I) are vacillating over naming him Alameda or Oscar. Lately everyone calls him "the poor bald baby." The children worry that it hurts to be bald, but I, who once sported a shaved head, tell them that it's painless.

And you can still reach out and help this poor bald baby! The Drunken Housewife Labor Day Internetethon goes on. We have received $50 to defray our vet bills so far, and we're hoping to raise $350 more. If we go over the vet bills, any remaining funds will be donated to the kitten rescue (a registered 501(c)(3)).

Help pay the poor bald baby's bills! Get a fabulous Sponsor's Package in return! Keep the Drunken Housewife married and in the kitten rescue business!

... and for the tagline, you could say...

"Take a defurring, and keeps on purring."
