BillCat's Surgery is Tomorrow - Please Pray!

BillCat is out of surgery!! The surgery went well and the surgeon decided to only do one knee. Bill will be recovering at home with 6 weeks of crate confinement. Let's all wish him a speedy recovery!!!

Just wanted to remind everyone that Maggie May's new friend, BillCat, will be undergoing surgery tomorrow to repair his luxating patella. They won't know if they will be doing just one or both knees until the actual surgery. Please, please, please let us all pray for BillCat and his mom tomorrow. I know they could both use the prayers and positive thoughts during this stressful time.

You got this, BillCat!!!

Purrs for BillCat

Maggie May is asking that all her friends purr for her new friend, BillCat. BillCat is just three years old and has been diagnosed with..... you guessed it - luxating patellas!! Darn those naughty knee caps! Bill has already been through a lot. At 2-3 months old, he and his litter mates underwent a surgical procedure to correct their eyes. They were born with eyelid agnesis -  they were missing the skin under the eyelids. So the surgeon took skin grafts from their months and constructed lower eyelids. Wow!  

Well, now it looks as though BillCat will need to undergo yet another surgery, this time to fix his knees. At the moment they are looking at just one, but by the surgery date on December 19, they may do both! The next two weeks will tell whether a double knee surgery is necessary. So Mags is asking you all to please purr and send good vibes to both BillCat and his mom. She is very worried, anxious, etc.

We ♥ you, BillCat! You will be in our thoughts and purrayers!

Thanks everyone!
