Thank you so much, Sharon.
I feel so badly for her. She is resting comfortably at the moment...but I will have to wake her up in about 5 minutes to give her the medicine she prescribed. It is a combination of a pain medicine and vitamins that are supposed to speed the healing process, especially Iron to prevent anemia.
I feel so sorry for her. I almost wish she were her old self again...growling, hissing and biting me if I even think about coming near her.
She is very attached to her mommy, but hasn't taken to me, yet. And it doesn't help that everytime I touched her the past 24 hours, I was squirting something nasty in her mouth or checking out her incision. I don't blame her...I would hate me too.
I will keep everyone posted. If she takes a bad turn, I won't hesitate to make the drive to the pet ER...but if I can hold out until Monday, then I can take her to the vet I use and trust. I wish my daughter, Lyndsay, could have stayed in Arkansas until time to go in for her re-check, but she had to work on moving and finalize her college registration this week.
Thanks to all who have taken the time to read my post, offer advice and give their kind thoughts. She is a beautiful girl...quite the assertive one, as far as kitties go, but a darling little spirit in spite of her 'spite'.
