Rex is a Happy Cat

For some reason tonight Rex is the happiest cat in the world. Lying next to me, purring, grabbing my hand and demanding to lick it, to lick my nose, to be petted, flopping down beside me (on the keyboard), purring, purring purring, playing with Patches (new kitten), making odd happy (I’m guessing) mewing noises….

We took him to the vet for his two week checkup and he got a mostly good bill of health. His eye is very good and his one ear is fine. The other ear still will need drops and washing out though. We’ll probably have to wash it every 7-10 days for the rest of his life to keep the mean nasty bumpy things in his hear canal from getting worse. I can deal with that, it’s a heck of a lot better than earcanal removal surgery. I’m sure he was pretty happy to hear that as well, means no more eye goo and no more antibiotics.

I’m very happy about his newly restored good nature and happiness. He was downright miserable right after his surgery (though I’m sure pain from it had something to do with it as well 🙂 and seeing him restored like this is awsome.
