Poor Charlie

***UPDATE 11:40pm***
Charlie will spend the night at the vet. They gave him a bunch of shots, I assume antibiotics and stuff, they took x-rays and looks like he has a broken jaw. Not sure of all details, he asked Super S to call in tomorrow late afternoon. I am besides myself. Will try to sleep now, we'll see. I can just picture him, he must be so scared...


Hey guys.

Our little guy Charlie is not doing well. We woke up to a very scary sight this morning. We went outside to our terrace where he usually waits in his chair for us in the morning and he was on the floor with his mouth covered in blood.

The blood is dry so its very hard to clean, and hard to see his mouth, we have no idea what happened. But it looks like he cannot close his mouth. He can walk though so thats a good sign I think.

The vet is not available until 7pm, its just after 4:30pm now. He has been upstairs with us all day, i set up a blanket on the couch and he has been sleeping.

You know until you own a pet you can not imagine how heartbreaking it is to see them sick. They are so helpless and it just breaks my heart to see him like this. I could not control my emotions this morning and have felt so sad all day, we both have. A day of tears for sure man.

We love this little guy so much and he is the baby of the three kittens, meaning he loves to be held and cuddled and he is the one who spends the most time indoors with us.

So please keep Charlie in your thoughts and I'll update after Super S takes him to the doctor later. I will stay home as I cannot bear to see him like that and then to be at the doctor where I know he will be so scared... Super S is so good with him he will take good care of him.

Our baby Charlie a few months ago...

  13. Oh dear...I sooo understand you my friend, it could be that he was in a fight or was hit by a car (is that possible?)...it may be that his jaw is broken but can be fixed and cats heals so so fast. We have the Dude who's definitely ready to be neutered and at is becoming quite aggressive with Patches (doesn't mean it but his twice the size of patches!) and so patches is scratched and bitten in the neck so much that he has scabs and bold patches!!
    Thinking of you, keep us posted, Fran

  16. Feel better Charlie! Hopefully it's something pretty minor like a broken tooth -- my kitty has had a couple of those.

  25. Oh, I'm sorry to hear this. I pray that little Charlie will be comfortable at the vet's office tonight and will be feeling better soon. I know how it feels when one of your pets is sick. I pray you two will be able to rest tonight as well.

  26. Oh no!

    Sick pets are always so stressful! It isn't like they can tell you what's wrong or what happened. :(

    I hope you can get some rest and that Charlie can come home tomorrow and make a speedy recovery.
