Kitty Update

It's been 4 days since the surgery, and Morgana is doing much better - as are Mr. Batty and I. The first evening and morning we had to give her meds, she struggled something awful. She's such a small kitty, you'd never think she had the ability to turn into a little squirming whirlwind of teeth and claws. I was worried people at work were going to see the scratches on my arms and think I'd tried to end it all with a fork...

Her brother kept hissing at her. Usually, it's just a day or so until the vet smell comes out of her fur. This time, it lasted longer. He'd come up to her, get a whiff of bloody tooth extraction mouth, and hiss/smack her. It was sad. But now, they're almost back to normal, and Morgana must have figured out the grab-and-squirt helps with the pain, because Mr. Batty can medicate her without my help. Only 3 more squirts and she's done!

Oh, the "grab and squirt" routine is so hard! Hope she's better soon.

Grab and squirt? Ha ha! That sounds like what I do on my lunch hour so Moochie has something to eat the next day ;-)

Glad she's feeling better and her bro is warming up to her again.

Ow. Poor girl!

I'm glad Merlin has chased the imposter away. (Oy, cats!) Now his sister is back again, eh?

I think one of the hardest thing I've done is giving a kitt medicine. I'm glad she's healing well!
