No, I don’t have I-net yet, I’m blogging quickly from work. Wanted to let you know about our little Jirachi. If you’ve followed his saga, he has had a continous sinus/upper respiratory problem since birth. Three rounds of antibiotics and a round of anti-virals and the little man was still snotting and sneezing and not growing. He’s 8 months old and weighs 4.9 lbs. That’s a little kitty!
This all came to a head right before the New Year when it appeared Jirachi was attempting to grow a horn from his forehead. Abscess city baby! Off to the vet we go and he had his little forehead shaved, his little abscess drained, and now he’s sporting a shaved head and a drain that appears to be an oversized twist-tie that I have to flush every morning and evening with an iodine solution.
Luckily, Jirachi is a spoiled little thing and takes his little pills without fuss and only gives me a bit of trouble over flushing the drain. The good thing is, he no longer sounds like Darth Vader and the vet sent a culture off to see if it may be a fungal problem given that Jirachi was born in a barn and exposed to all kinds of different fungi, bacterias, and viruses.
So, Happy New Year to you all. I had saved all kinds of money to get my I-net turned back on, but, I had to get Jirachi’s horn removed and that pretty well took care of that. I’ll post pictures whenever I can.
See ya soon!
