So, we just spent about $700 on the cats. Iccarus was no big deal, just needed his annual exam and rabies shots. Chubby on the other hand, got a hematoma in his ear which cause it to swell up. The vet thinks this is related to his allergies. So he had surgery today to drain the ear. They also stitched it up so that the layers of skin and cartlidge will bond, which will (hopefully) prevent a repeat. Now he's on 3 different medications (ear drops, antibiotics and pain killers), and our Independence Day travel plans have been shelved. Oh well. Such are the joys of having pets.
