Hi, Percy here. I’m very pleased to report that I’m still with you. Mummy has been giving me Metacam twice every day, and my lump has gone down enough for me to straighten my jaw and eat more or less properly.
I’m not surprised Mummy was really worried about me, though, I felt really poorly after that night I had with the twitches. It felt most peculiar and I was worn out and feeling very uncomfortable. But I’m over that now, and happy to be organising a birthday party for Wednesday! More of that next week.
Roscoe’s scar is nearly healed. It’s taken a bit longer because he had a funny bug in it that needed a different antibiotic. So he’s been on two types of antibiotic for over a week now, and seems to be getting better. Fingers crossed. He went for a check up last Thursday and Mummy took Neville with him. Neville had incredibly dirty ears. It was like black soot in them. Mummy said she wasn’t sure whether the dirt went all the way down, so she wanted Dr Sally to look at them.
Well, according to Roscoe, when Dr Sally put a thing in his ear to look down, Neville didn’t like that at all, and shot backwards out of Mummy’s hands and slipped down between the table and Mummy’s body. Mummy tried to catch him but all she could grab was a lot of hair! Eventually Neville got onto the floor, and Mummy could pick him up and check him over. He didn’t have any bones broken or hurt, but he did have a sore lip and his top incisors were wobbly. He and Roscoe both had a run around on Dr Sally’s floor just to check he was moving okay, too. Mummy is terribly worried that Auntie Layla will think she’s a bad Mummy, but she isn’t, she just wanted to check Neville’s hearing was okay, and Neville didn’t want it checked.
Anyway, Roscoe says Neville is eating fine even though his front teeth have now broken off at the gum. Mummy took a photo of Gummy, as we now call Neville, and we expect he’ll grow some new ones in a week or two. Meanwhile he’s getting some of his food cut up in strips like I have mine, but apparently he’s fine at picking up hay and munching bits of lettuce and stuff. He hasn’t lost any weight yet, anyway, and he’s a tubby boy, just like Dougall was.
Sometimes I wonder how Mummy keeps track of all the meds we have, but I noticed that she has a black board with white writing on it, and our names are there, with long words and some figures after them. I expect that’s our meds list, as none of the others are on it except Roscoe and me. Neville had some of my metacam for the first couple of days after he did his teeth, but he’s stopped now.
So, it’s been very busy here this week. The good news is we had special hay with carrots and herby bits in it. We also had a little grass from the garden. I like both of those. More please, Mummy!
