Harvey’s most recent Ear Surgery update is here.
Hi guys Harvey here with a rather serious announcement about some ear surgery I need to have.
I was whisked to the vet today in, as pal Cathy Keisha would say, a PTU (Prisoner Transportation Unit) and the evil vet Dr Hughes, OK, actually he’s a pretty good and gentle guy….. pointed out I had an erupting squamous carcinoma on one ear and potentially on the other – so I have to lose my ears ends and two tiny dots under my nose.
The picture at the top of the post is an old one, but it shows the approximate location of the cells on my ear. The vet says if its done now the hair will grow back and I should, we believe, look just a bit different and my fur will come back. The alternative is not one the family will even contemplate – if left things will get much worse.
I will be wearing an Elizabethan (aka Buster) collar for 10/15 days (that worries Mum she has never had a cat have serious surgery and have to wear one of these for more than five minutes and that worries her).
I go in Thursday at 8.a.m. and Mum will report on how things go. We will try not to panic, and we will try not to be scared.
