Disco lookin' pretty Disco in his (or Coco's) new Doggy Style hoodie!
You might have noticed that we skipped our weekly 'Disco's Diet' post on Monday, the 21st.
That was cuz Mr D unscrewed the lid of TomTom's food hopper and gorged on a medley of 'junk food' while Teri was off day hunting...
(Ps: It really was Teri's fault about the lid not being screwed on tight...after all, we don't have thumbs!)
All it took was that 'A moment on the lips, forever on the hips' scenario...you get the picture!
Well, it took Disco 2 weeks to lose the 5 ounces his trip through the smorgasbord packed on,
so this week, Disco's weighin' in at 14 pounds, 6 ounces, so that's up 2 ounces from May 14th.
You might have noticed that pix of Disco in the new hoodie looks suspiciously like he might just be at the vets! Yep...for only the 2nd time in Teri's whole lifetime of cats, she has a kitty with an abscess!
And yep, it's Disco! Last Thursday she noticed a bite mark on Disco's side--probably from Brighton, as they get into tussles sometime. It looked minor at the time and she didn't start him on antibiotics.
But by Saturday, it was puffy and infected, so she ran into work and got a long acting antibiotic injection and although it looked worse for a day, now the lump is firm and smaller and Dr E saw him today and said he doesn't need to undergo anesthesia and flushing as it's not fluid filled but a granuloma now.
We hope Dr E is right...Disco has love handles, he doesn't need an extra lump! Fortunately, his fashionable hoodie covered up the bitey mark...doesn't look like much, does it?
But without antibiotics, it would have turned into a full-fledged abscess (don't click on this link if you are squeamish, hahameow).
And just for Prancer Pie and Stella (oh and Carole, too!)...here's a shot of Disco sunning himself yesterday!
