Hoping too that the neuter will have Haboob settling down a little & that Stormy will start to like him more. Hope you heal quickly too ! I fell on the deck steps years ago & cracked & bruised my rib cage , it took forever to stop hurting ! Don't forget to do breathing exercises , its common to take shallow breaths because of the soreness .

Oh gosh, Haboob really is adorables.   Kiss  In that first photo, he looks a little like a spider monkey.   Cheesy

How sweet that Stormy sometimes grooms him!  What does Haboob think of that?

Hopefully now that he's neutered he'll calm down a tiny bit and Smoggy will get along with him.  Fingers crossed!

And as for you - holy smokes, running and you fell on your ribs?  That doesn't sound like an easy thing to do, ouch!!  You have particular stretches so as to prevent scar tissue?!  Oh geez!  That really must have hurt! 

Hope you (and you, too, Alek0) are back to regular as soon as possible!

He is so cute and you can see on his face that he is a naughty little terror  Grin Hopefully things will calm down soon.

take care, hope that you feel better soon. I have injured my wrist in aerial yoga and it takes forever for it to heal since somehow I keep re-injuring it, even by simple things like opening a can of cat food. Grrrrr. This time around I', doing wrist physio exercises and slowly stretching it so hopefully it will heal OK and not too stiff.

Our new naughty boy:

Ignorance is bliss....

He has no idea....

OMG what did you do to me?!

A new toy doesn't really make up for that but I'll take what I can get.

Smoggy has now decided he doesn't like Haboob at all. Lots of hissing, growling and swatting. To be fair, Haboob is quite the little monster. He just doesn't take no for an answer. I'm hoping he'll settle down and they will be the best of friends soon. Haboob is not a pushover like Cosmo was. Stormy tolerates Haboob and sometimes grooms him. She will discipline him when necessary. I think things will be in a bit of an uproar for a while until Smoggy accepts him.

It's been a bit difficult for me to take care of the kitties as I fell while running on Sunday and landed hard on my ribcage. Luckily I didn't hurt anything else but man am I sore. Just turning over in bed is an adventure. But I'm slowly getting better and things are getting easier to do (except for the stretches I have to do to prevent scar tissue from building up between my ribs - owie). Life is an adventure for sure!

Tonight I've decided to let everyone have free run of the house and all litter boxes will have Yesterday's News. That way they can all sleep in my bedroom. We'll see how that goes.  Roll Eyes

Haboob a very powerful dust storm!  That is so cute!  I was wondering about the "theme."  That's such a great choice for name!  And the photo is so adorable - I love how you can see his eyes looking up trying to see what next mischief he can get into.   Cheesy

LOL that of all the things he had to go and do, he got his open incisions comfy on the litter.   Tongue Cheesy

I'm wondering about the separating the kitties thing - maybe it's a thing of the past by the time you read this, but if it's not, I kind of wonder if, if there is another room where you could keep Haboob with his own litter box during the night, and let Stormy and Smoggy continue to use your bedroom?  It might not work to everyone's favor to give any false implication to any of the cats that the hierarchy is changing.   Huh

GKit, he is definitely one of those hyperactive on drugs kitties! I just left him to his own devices and hoped for the best.

His incisions looked pretty irritated yesterday. I told the vet about it but I didn't think it was quite bad enough to bring him in. They look better today so I think using the Yesterday's News was a good idea. I'll keep using that for the next few days until the wounds are healed. He is eating, pooping and peeing normally, and is his usual hyper annoying self - running, climbing, knocking things over and generally carrying on crazy like the kitten he is! I look forward to him settling down for a nap so we all can have a few moments of peace and quiet.

I've had to separate the kitties at night so he can use his own litter box and they use theirs. Stormy and Smoggy are upset about this as they both are used to sleeping with me and don't like being locked out of my bedroom. Hopefully they won't be too upset as it's only for a couple more days. Smoggy is especially upset as he is a sensitive cat. He has made his displeasure known by giving me a hard gnaw-bite a couple of times. I hope he'll forgive me when things settle down!

And this instruction to keep him calm and quiet - yeah that's not working. He is running and playing with Smoggy and not being calm at all. I tried putting him in his kennel and he got very upset and was desperately trying to claw his way out. This is more stressful than I had anticipated.

Try not to feel bad about this! About 90% of the time when we get Gypsy home after anesthesia she is bouncing off the walls. (She should be nice and quiet, they say. Yeah. Nope.) I think it’s just how some of them react to the drugs. Sounds like he’s recovering well.

Thanks leslie, I'll pick some of that up today. Last night after this happened I went and got some yesterday's news and set up a litter tray for him in my bedroom. I locked the other kitties out so it was just me and him and as far as I know he slept most of the night.

They look ok this morning, just a little red and slight ooze on them. He hasn't been licking so I don't think they are bothering him. He is on a little Buprenex for pain. He is acting his normal frisky self. I'll try and post a picture later if I can get one!

gently spray it with sterile saline Ocean or even store brand . Don't use peroxide . And think about a disposable foil pan of paper litter or shredded paper for him for a few days so he doesn't keep doing it Roll Eyes
