I’m out of surgery and doing well. The surgeons found no internal bleeding, and a drain is now in place to help prevent infection in my wound.

I’ve been under anesthesia for a while, but I’ve had some water — I’ve even been purring!

The vet is going to try to get me to eat some food in a little while and see how I do with that. I can’t deny that I had quite the appetite earlier, so I’m rather looking forward to this little experiment.

I’m on antibiotics to help fight infection, and I can’t wait to get home. Word on the street is I’ll no longer be sleeping on an old towel in a Crate & Barrel box.

Visions of cushions and catnip mice are dancing in my head tonight…

Thanks for your hopes, prayers and donations. I’m one lucky kitty.

    Awesome news. Thanks for the update. Will I be seeing you at work, little one?

    Hang in there, Fiver! The one thing better than catnip is a good painkiller.

    I think Fiver will definitely have to make an appearance at Mother Nature Network once he’s moving around a little better.
