How We Met

When Brainy was little, a mountain lion started picking off his whole family one by one. Brainy was caught one day and his mommy went to his rescue! The mountain lion killed his mommy but Brainy got away. However, he was near death, limping with two holes on his head; the result of the mountain lion's fangs through his skull! His right eye was severely damaged and several of his teeth were missing or broken. He was hardly moving but he managed to drag himself to me, as if knowing that I would take care of him. I took him home and brought him to the vet who told me that his chances of living were not good. His brains were leaking out of the top hole in his head and the vet told me that if he did survive, he would have problems, mentally. My friends who saw him all thought that he would die in about 3 days. It was touch and go but I kept the faith and he slowly recovered. A few months later, after he was fully recovered, his tail got almost severed. He limped back to me although I did not know it till 3 days later. I was trying to move him, wondering why he was sleeping so soundly when I lifted him and to my shock, there was blood all over my hands! I rushed him to the vet and after much deliberation; they finally had to amputate his tail. Poor Brainy had already been through so much that I could feel his pain just looking at him. Now he is fully recovered and playful as a kitten although he still has one bad eye and looks a little lopsided but I think that's what makes him special! I am so glad that I took him home and I never regretted the decision! It pains me to think of his mommy but at least I saved the only one in the litter left. I did go back the next day and chased the mountain lion off. I didn't hurt the mountain lion but he's never returned.

Miss my brother
I miss my brother! I miss how he always is there eating up all the food! Actually he has his own bowl but he finishes it all and I can't have any after I finish my food! But I would even give him my food if he will come back! He was a very good big brother and he always protected me! I wish I could have protected him then!

Come visit me, Brainy & Buster.

My brother left us!
My brother left us for the Rainbow Bridge yesterday, October 8, at 7pm! He ran across the road and was hit by a vehicle! My daddy was holding him and crying the whole night through! He is very sad and I hope that he will be ok soon! Buster was a very good brother and he never took a swat at me when I want him to play! I love him very much and will miss him dearly! May he be in the hands of God and wait there for me when it is my turn to go!

Doing well!
I am well enough to write the blog now! I am busy hunting for mice and moles and voles and salamanders and anything that moves! My teeth feels all right now but I still have to take my medicine!
Have to go now and look for that mouse! Bye!

Brainy's doing well
Brainy's still a little quiet today after being sedated yesterday at the vet! The vet extracted 2 teeth yesterday and he is now on antibiotics! They didn't give me any pain medication to take home with me and I did ask but they don't think it is necessary. He also got all his teeth cleaned and hopefully I can delay any more dental work by keeping his teeth cleaned from now on! It's going to be a fight but I hope to be able to do that!
All in all, Brainy is doing well, no vomiting or any sign of illness except that he is subdued! I am very relieved!

Come visit me, Brainy & Buster.

Brainy at the vet today.
Brainy is at the vet right now going through a dental checkup! The poor boy had to fast all through the night and he was kept locked up in a room, which made him think that he was not loved anymore! My heart breaks for him but at least eh is going through his teeth exam and cleaning and the vet is supposed to call me if they think they have to extract a tooth! I hope not!
I also hop[e that all goes well with him and that he will be ok! I am very nervous now and can't wait to bring him home and feed him!
Buster and Princess is all quiet today too and I wonder if they know that their brother is at the vet?
I will be picking him up around 4 this afternoon and I am waiting anxiously for them to call me to pick him up!

Come visit me, Brainy & Buster.

Brainy's coming vet visit
I am starting to get nervous about Brainy's vet visit this coming Friday! I know it is just a dental surgery but he does need to be under sedation! I hear that any time they have to go under general anesthesia it is dangerous! But there is no other way!

Come visit me, Brainy & Buster.

Brainy ate a whole bag of treats today! He's such a treat monster! Poor guy still has a bad tooth but is scheduled to go to the vet on the 10th although I am trying to change it to an earlier appointment!
He's so sweet though, sat on me for quite a while but when he was younger, he used to sit on me till I had to get him to move! I didn't want to but I was getting all cramped up with him on me! Haha!

Come visit me, Brainy & Buster.

Brainy's bad tooth
Yesterday, I extracted my bad tooth and it was in the same place as Brainy's bad tooth! Now I am waiting to see if his tooth will get better! It's weird that we both have a bad tooth right in the same position and I am thinking perhaps that his was due to mine being bad! Anyway, I still will be bringing him to the vet on the 2nd of next month!
Also, I got a new toothbrush for them today and now am trying to psyche myself to get around to brushing their teeth! Bet they won't like it!

Come visit me, Brainy & Buster.

Finally I settled on ASPCA insurance! They seem to be the only ones who cover dental but poor Brainy has to wait till Sept 1st for his surgery! I hope that he will not be in too much pain till then! The insurance is expensive and I hope that they will not try and nickel and dime me out of any claims, if I do file a claim!
Now I feel slightly better but I won't be relaxed till Brainy is ok again!

Brainy still has to go to surgery!
Aaargh! I just can't make head or tails of these insurance quotes and they can't give me a direct answer if they cover dental! Meanwhile Brainy still has to have his tooth extracted and is probably in pain! I know it is my fault delaying everything but when you have a very limited budget and have to make the best decision based on hardly enough money, it gets really tough! I need somebody to talk to, to think clearly! I feel the pain Brainy is bearing every moment of the day and it is driving me crazy!

Lost a tooth
Brainy lost a tooth last week! It was one of his front bottom teeth that he had left! Now the poor baby has no front teeth at the bottom and to top it off, it is not the one he has to have extracted! He still has to go to surgery for that but the vets have been really confusing about their prices and the insurance companies have been worse!
He seems all right now but I am afraid that he is hiding his pain well, as all cats are apt to do! it is so stressful to me that I am freezing up and not being able to think clearly about what to do!
If anyone out there reads this, please help me decide! I'm going out of my mind!

Bad teeth!
I brought Brainy to the vet yesterday to find out why he was losing so much weight and she found out that he had a bad tooth! On a quick examination she could find nothing else wrong but the tooth extraction would cost a lot so I have to save up for it! Poor
Brainy, another problem! He is very wonderful though! Snuggles with me a lot and is so cuddly! :)

Hi again
Glad everyone's feeling better! Thought I'd drop by. Abby is doing well, we went on a vacation for a while and she really missed us, poor kitty! She is sitting next to me right now, I'm sure she'd send her hellos.

Just saying "Hi!" to everybody!
Hello everybody!
My brother is all ok now and he is allowed to go outside but I can't go! Waaah! I want to play outside too but my Mom and Dad are too worried about me (I guess that I do forget to come back because everything is so interesting outside but I always come back!). When Buster comes back in the house, I want to pounce on him and play with him but everytime I do it, somebody shouts at me not to! I need friends! Please stop by and say hi to me so that I have somebody to talk to at least!

Come visit me, Brainy & Buster.

My brother is sick!
Hi all! Thanks for the nice messages! Unfortunately my brother is sick right now, he has just returned from surgery and is not himself so I can't spend much time on the computer. I don't really do anything for him except make him feel better - at least I think so when I go wake him up to see if he is ok! I'll get back on the computer when he is feeling better. I know what it is like to have to go through surgery! Bye all!

Come visit me, Brainy & Buster.

Hi! My name is Slippers. I hope you are having a good weekend! There's nothing special about mine, but I might as well say it's purr-fect! The dog's asleep, the sun is shining, and best of all, there are plenty of sofas 'round the room for me to take a nice catnap on. But I can't get too comfortable. I hate waking up to the bright flash of a digital camera.

Well, I'm so glad my mom taught me to type! Otherwise I'd be here for hours! Speaking of which, I'd better get to sleep. *yawns*

Meows and purrs,

P.S. Left a vote! Stop by my profile and leave me a vote too if you can.

Come visit me, Lilly~Our temporary kitty! (Read her story!), ––––•(-• Slippers •-)•–––– & Bambi ~ In very loving memory!.
