Recovering

As you can see, I am back to my normal behavior (mostly!). Once the anaesthesia wore off and I stopped walking sideways or backwards and wobbling, and my humans had offered me enough assistance and attention, I was ready to PLAY! We played fetch, and here I'm battling a new foe:


Nonetheless, I continue to receive a lot of sympathy and extra patting. At first, I did not want to go anywhere by myself, because I was really having some difficulty figuring out how to move with this claw-forsaken collar.

Ms. C carried me to my food and water, and I had a little bit of both. Later, she carried me to and placed me in my big litter box, where I did both kinds of business. I made sure she stayed with me for this. She poured a scoopful of litter over each spot for me, I was really grateful! I even gave her finger a rub afterwards (something I rarely deign to do), and for the first time since my surgery, my tail went straight up in the air and I walked beside her.


Tomorrow will be the requested belly picture. I am really feeling better, and thanks to all of you who have been wishing me well!

Yay, Abby! I'm so glad you feel better today. Your mom has been very helpful. Is there any funk in that shoe?

I'm glad you're recovering so quickly. Mrs. C takes very good care of you. If you ask me, that shoe had it coming!

Hey, Zoey had her belly shaved too! She looked real funny. But that fur does grow back....
