Can you say b-o-r-e-d?

Stephanie's been made to "take it easy" this past week, doctor's orders. She nearly managed to reopen her spay incision, so it's been no toys, no jumping, and not too much rough-housing for our little girl...

and she's driving us all crazy! <-- me, this past week

She meows constantly, her "I'm bored!" cry, and I've heard quite enough of it the past few days. While Mom and Miko are content to sleep, Stephanie wants to see action, and her frustration is becoming palpable.

On top of that, she's been getting herself into all kinds of trouble Getting onto the counters, stealing food, trying to get into the garbage, eating rubberbands...And if I have to endure another night of her crying and jumping on and off the bed I just might cry...

*sigh*

never dull with cats around, is it?

She isn't happy with just being loved on? Nice quiet time spent in your lap being pet? What am I thinking... she's a kitten!!

How long ago was she spayed? I remember its been a few days since I read about them, so she should be on her way to healing... I'm sure you can find some sort of peaceful yet active thing for her to do... you can always try hiding treats inside things and see if she can get them out... that should keep her busy a while

It's been a week. She has some of her beloved feathered/rattely mice to bat around, but interactive focused play, like with Da Bird, is a no-no (at least for now). If she didn't try to leap four feet in the air, then do a flip-twist-somersault, then it might be a possibility

Miko has been taking it easy, Miko's incision is nearly healed. But Steph's incision is still a rather large scab, and it's been hard enough watching when they roughhouse to see that Scully and Miko don't kick too hard with their backfeet. They managed to nick the edge of the scab the other day.

I had Eclaire spayed about two weeks ago. She spent the first night and most of the next day in isolation, then she came out and got right back into the mix. She and Belle and Smooth were rough-housing and she split her incision wide open. She must've kept playing for another 30 or 40 minutes with her intestines hangin' out....blood everywhere. But then she just got on one the cat beds, and proceeded to tuck it all back in and clean the wound up. She's fine now



Sorry, just kidding . I just couldn't resist the mental picture that cats could care less about getting healed up properly. None of ours have stopped playing more than a day and a half after surgery. Hope nobody stroked out
