Misty Grey

She has things to do, like occupying sunbeams, drinking out of the bathroom sink, and being beautiful – on four legs, or three!

03-29-14 – Day 3 After Surgery

Filed under: Uncategorized — ddmckenna at 5:54 am on Saturday, March 29, 2014

This photo was in the morning when she was due for more meds. I felt a little bad  about the idea of waking her up, she was sleeping so cutely.  

She woke up a couple minutes later, I didn’t have to rouse her. Turns out she has been up once or twice in the night too, judging from the state of the litterboxes and her food dishes. I can’t believe she lies right on the scar already. I’d think that would hurt?? My friend who used to be a vet tech said that is a sign that they did well with her pain management.  The vet’s office all seemed almost amazed she was doing so well. I’m glad, I want her to be as happy and comfortable as possible. i’ve heard that it can go badly, than some animals really freak out.  I thought long and hard about how she would handle it before I made the decision. I was pretty sure she would just want to get back to doing all the things she likes to do, whatever it takes. And that is exactly what she’s doing, with lots of rest in between.


She can still wash her front left leg even without the right one to stand on. She’s kinda leaning against the wall a bit, she tried without it a couple times first, and couldn’t stay up long enough to get a good lick. She came home smelling like vet + litter box because she slept in the litter box there. I washed her with Waterless Bath where I could but I am glad she is cleaning up – she needed to do the finishing touches herself.


And she washed me too. <3

Awww, its wonderful that she’s comfortable sleeping on her “bad” side! I don’t think Fang did that until he got his staples out, but let me tell you, the second we got him home he was rolling all OVER that side. I think they itched and he was incredibly pleased to have them out. So glad that Misty’s obviously very comfortable and happy! Oh, Fang did the use-the-wall-for-support thing too. Its a great way for them to rebalance themselves and build up some muscle. She’ll stop needing to rely on it in no time!
