Well, we made it home to a very sad discovery - our kitten was ill. We took her in this morning, and they think she ate something bad (like a string) and are right now opening her to find it and make it go away. Very nerve wracking.

She made it through the surgery, which removed a gigantic hairball that had stopped up her esophagus. Or someplace. They are keeping her overnight, and hopefully she will be all better tomorrow and able to come home a much happier kitten!

I'm glad that it was "just" a hairball and not more serious. Hopefully she will come back healthy and eager to be at home with her humans.

If previous experience is any guide, she'll be happy to see us until we try to give her her medicine (she's going to be getting antibiotics and a painkiller at first). Then she'll turn into a roaring spitfire of doom until she has successfully warded off the vile medicine, then return to her mild-mannered ways. It should be an entertaining few days.
