An Update on Stoney

Until today, Stoney (our broken legged orange and white wonder boy) has been at the vets.  Dr. S decided to try "one more thing" before putting the pins and plates in Stoney's foot.  He sedated Stoney, set his broken bones, and put a cast on his leg.  In one week, he'll take an x-ray.  If the foot remains stable, Stoney won't need surgery.  If the bones move, it's "game on" for surgery.

I'm not holding my breath about the chances of non-surgery.  I'm just not that fortunate.  Regardless of the outcome, Stoney doesn't know he's my Million Dollar Man and seems quite content in my washroom until his foster Mom can take over this evening:


As I'm typing this blog post my son just called down to me: "MOM!!!!  Stoney is rolling around in his litterbox and is COVERED in poop and pee."  Honestly?  I'm afraid to go upstairs and look.  I can't deliver the guy to his foster Mom covered in poop and pee, but I'm sitting here hoping the "Poop and Pee Fairy" will come along and clean him up. 

Please don't tell me there's no such thing as the "Poop and Pee Fairy".... I think he's related to the "Barf Fairy" and somebody barfed up a big hairball in the basement and I'm hoping the Fairies will make it a 2 for 1 bargain.

Abracadabra!!!....

well, the 'Barf fairy' *must* be at yours, because he certainly isn't at mine...went in to clean the litter box and surounding area (Malley treats litter it as if it is confetti...I'm sure he stands in the litter box - when I'm not looking - shouting 'Ticker-tape Parade'!! and hurls it around the room gleefully) and I stepped in a hairball...eeeuuuuwww...

Stoney is *so* adorable! Fingers crossed your good deed (i.e rescuing a cat that definitely needed vet work) will be rewarded by the fact that the cast trick will work... I do hope you'll get your cats to sign Stoney's cast before he goes to his foster mom though :-)

Well if the fairy stops by your place could you send it over to our place to clean up after us once it is finished there.

Lots of purrs and healing Light to Stoney. He's just the sweetest, most heart-melting boy ever. Except for the rolling around in the poop and pee thing. :-D

Hope you do get that fairy!

Our barf fairy here is called The Dog. If the Poop and Pee fairy doesn't make it to your home, just remember that you are getting a WHOLE bunch of extra good karma points for rescuing Stoney from certain death!

Fairies how wonderful, I wish you would share. I'm always in need of a fairy with Blair around. Stoney is loving being out of the shelter for sure, and moving along great on his leg. Good luck with him.

ps. look either on my blog or facebook, supepr cute cat video that you will love.

Hope the cast works and surgery isn't needed. If the poop/pee/barf fairies are related to the kitchen fairies that are suppose to clean our kitchen don't expect them any time soon.
