    Thank you everyone so much for keeping him in your thoughts! He isn’t 100% yet but he can only improve from here. He’ll be eating nothing but wet food for at least the next month and I am considering keeping him on wet food permanently. He also has to take valium (diazepam) for a week to keep his muscles from getting all tight around his urethra and keeping him from peeing. He’s been lecturing me adorably ever since I got home, so my fears that he wouldn’t trust me anymore were unfounded. He really appreciated the new catnip toy that I got him and he is currently spying on the neighbourhood. Hopefully soon I’ll see him take a nap. <3 His big brother Copernicus is being a bit of a buttface right now but hopefully once the Eau de Vet Clinic odour has worn off they’ll be BFFs again. I am so happy to have Casper home! 😀

    Thank you again all so much! Here's Casper, back where he belongs (watching over the neighbourhood from his cat tree in his favourite window!)

    What a beautiful cat. I’m so glad he’s okay.

    Keeping an eye out for fantasy gryphons and test paint dragons.

    Yay! He’s back home! That’s wonderful. I’m sure he’ll just get better from here. Very happy for you and him. There’s been a lot of unhappy pet news later, so it’s nice to hear some good news.

    Thanks guys! <3 Unfortunately I have some bad news – Casper has to go back to the vet and he's probably going to be getting his man bit shortened. 🙁 ($700 later…) The vet said when we talked about it before that Casper should recover right away and no longer have any problems with crystals, so I hope he's right because I'm seeing no other option. I dearly wish that this hadn't happened – just over a week ago he was romping around being a happy three year old. My only consolation is that I may have scored a job at a bakery – my second day working there is later today but it's more hectic than I am used to, so holding it may be a challenge. I really wish my parents were here to help me, at least with driving me to the vet so that I don't have to take a taxi, but they're not. Hopefully, hopefully, Casper pulls through. I'm praying like crazy. 🙁

    Oh no – poor little guy back in pain (and poor you, too). Probably once everything heals up Casper will just be glad that the pain went away.

    I hope the new job works out for you. 🙂

    So Casper is home (again) and hopefully for good! He got home yesterday after a successful surgery the day before and he’s already acting much more normal, though he’s sleeping a lot. His big brother Copernicus is being nicer to him too! (Still hissing at him but politely keeping his distance.) Last night Casper slept snuggled up against my side, Copernicus on the other side of the bed and it occurred to me that the poor dude probably could have used a heating pad, so I hope my body heat sufficed. He has also been PURRING which I haven’t heard him do since before he got sick! The little guy has lost weight but so far he’s eating just fine so hopefully he’ll put that weight back on nice and quickly. (He was by no means overweight. He was perfect!) He isn’t galloping around yet but he’s being snuggly and he’s really appreciating the sunbeams coming from our front windows. Later, when it heats up a bit more outside I’ll open them up so that he can enjoy the sunshine even more. 🙂

    Also – he’s in a cone! He looks so sad and ridiculous haha, but he has to wear it to keep him from touching his butt where his sutures are. His entire rear end and groin has been shaved.

    Thank you guys for keeping him in your thoughts! I’m not really going to take a breath until his stitches are out but for now things already seem much better for him. Soon hopefully he’ll be galloping up and down the hallway. For now his province shall be sunbeams and twice the usual amount of pets until he feels better. (Plus some metacam.) All totaled, his expenses were over $1,500 but I’ll be happy so long as he is alive. Also I’m loving my new job so far – my coworkers are great and I get free baked goodies – what more is there to love? And it’s full time which I haven’t had in years which means that soon once my finances have recovered from Casper’s issue and after I have fixed my computer I might be able to think about moving out as well as getting driving lessons so that I can get my Novice license. My trip to visit my buddy in Texas is also looking more likely and I plan to reward myself with a small, cheap, non-PYO Windstone once Casper’s vet bills are paid off. I managed all of these issues that Casper went through almost completely alone. I also managed to not touch my long term savings account which I am really proud of and happy about. I didn’t have to sacrifice any of that money which is meant for my future.

    I will either be looking into pet insurance in the future or simply setting up a ‘vet expenses’ account for my boys to save up funds for when they need it.
