We made a trip to the emergency vet last night. Or should I say early this morning? Well, either way, I was awakened from a sound sleep with the words, "Mom, Jeffy the kitten got into my fishing tackle and has a hook caught in his mouth!"
After determining that there was no way for us to remove it, off the the emergency vet we went. It took them 45 minutes to sedate him and cost $274. He got home this morning and went right to the food bowl.
Oh, that we could all recover from it so fast.
