Today The Floof Goes Poof!

Hi kitties, Parker here on behalf of the Rudester. This morning Rudy gets stuffed into the PTU and goes to see Tiffany the very nice groomer. We all had our food and water taken away before we went to bed last night just in case they have to sedate Rudy. Tiffany works out of Diamond's VET hospital  - Dr. Babbit will monitor him if it comes to that.
Since Rudy is going to be 11 years old next month he is considered a geriatric kitty and sedation is always a concern. The good news is that Rudy is very healthy and should be fine if he has to be sedated. But we still worry. As much as I don't care for his orange menace pesky ways, I still want him to be OK and come back smelling all sweet and having his mats gone. Mommy won't relax until she hears he's ready to come home.
Please think good thoughts for our big orange creamsicle - life in O Hi O is always exciting with him in the picture!

Sending good thoughts to your orange boy! Is 11 really geriatric? How 'bout 10? That would mean I'm geriatric, and I feel like a spring chicken!

I hope things go ok for Rudy. (and rudy pal... The furminator really isn't that bad in comparison with being sedated...)

Kea said...

Good luck to Rudy! We're sure all will be well and we can't wait to see pics of his "makeover." :-)

We know Rudy will be just fine. He'll come back all prettified... but maybe not in the best mood. :)

Poor Rudy - no food, nothing to drink, going in the PTU and getting furrs stolen - - he could be scarred for life!! We hope he will have a treat and a cuddle when he gets home.

Don't worry, Rudy. I get mats all the time and getting them shaved off isn't that bad. I always feel much better when it's done. Just be a good boy and you won't need the sedation.
