Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright

Great report from the vet this morning!  Tiger is doing very well.  She is healing very fast and so this morning they were able to take out the drain on her stomach wound.  They are lowering her dose of morphine based pain-killer and starting her on non-steroid anti-inflammatory medicine so that she will be more alert and also to help reduce swelling.

And I get to go visit her this afternoon!  It's kind of funny that I'm going to be driving over an hour to go visit my cat for 15 minutes.  But I'm just so thankful that I get to see her.  I don't want her to think I've abandoned her.

The vet is hoping that while I'm there, we can get her to start trying to stand up.  I'm bringing my camera, so I will try to get a picture of her so you can all see what she looks like - I suspect she will look pretty bizarre!  But she's my little Tiger regardless of how strange she will look with tubes sticking out of her, hair shaved off and bandages all over.  I can't wait to see the little feline!

Thank you so much for all of your prayers, purrs, and positive thoughts.  I know it has encouraged me tremendously to know so many people are caring for her.  And I do happen to believe in the power of prayer.  In fact I really think God helped me find the little tyke when she was stuck up the tree and had no strength left to meow.  I'm praying that she will get stronger every day and come home soon.


  1. This is WONDERFUL news. We will continue to pray for you both. Take care.

  2. Oh my goodness, how did I miss this? I am so sorry to hear about Tiger, and so glad that everything is on the upswing!! I love cats, too! We have two momma cats and four very cute, funny, adorable kittens with one and one lone survivor with our other 'crazy' momma! One day I'll post pics. I know Tiger will be so glad to see you! Your visit will probably just help her speed-up her recovery, so don't worry about how far you are driving to do this...when we love our animals, we'll do just about anything! I'll keep a better watch for your posts! Have a great day! :)

  3. See me over here? I'm the one with the great big smile!!!

  4. Best of luck with your kitty.

  5. I saw your blog on the Friday blog hop. It hurts me to see any animal suffer. We're so responsible for our pets welfare. Good luck.
