As of today, Ziggy is doing much better and seems to be on the mend! Our cat-vet Dr. Bill was able to make it first thing on Monday to give a good exam to, and assistance for, poor Zig.
We had to be dug out with a backhoe/skip loader on Saturday and Sunday with one of the big things being to make room for our vehicles at our parking area. So, there was room for Bill's mobile hospital for Ziggy's appointment on Monday.
Ziggy not only had something burst in his ear/sinus area, but somewhere had some internal bleeding. Bill suspected either bleeding from the sinus area or a possible ulcer in the stomach. Ziggy's bloodwork did show some anemia. Now, with supportive meds, we're making slow progress to a recovery. At least we're very hopeful at this point. Zig's much more comfortable and each day sees some advance.
I have to admit that dealing with this was scary. I hate to see any animal in pain. I knew poor Zig wasn't feeling well, but during the snows all that could be done was supportive care like subcutaneous fluids, warmth, small meals of soft foods...even a vaporizer going to make his breathing a bit easier in this uber-dry air we have here.
And thank you all for your support, good thoughts and purrayers for Mr. Zig. You not only supported him, but me as well.
