Owie Ow!


I just got my first look post-surgery. It sure looks worse from the surgery than it did from the cat bite. At least there's no infection in there anymore. I guess the doctor did a type of running stitch, that's what the 4 indentations are on the bottom. They come out next Monday.
The cat got away from me but at least I was able to observe her for 6 days and she seemed just fine, I was told she'd be drooling by now if she had rabies. Never underestimate the determination of a cat. She squeezed herself out of a slot less than 3" high when I took the tray out of the crate to hose it down. I had newspaper in there but she was just shredding it in her attempts to escape.
Zoey (yes, I've named the kitten) is beginning to act more kitten-like. She's purring regularly, hissing less and starting to play. Hubby still says no to keeping her but I'm still working at it : (

Well This is something that will have to be played out Josie... I understand why you want to keep her and I understand why hubby does not....

Oh there's more to come...

OUCH that finger looks like it hurts!

ooooo...That looks painful! Truly fitting for a dark artist to put on her website. I am cheering for the cute kitten to get to stay...but I think the rest will have to go. Poor kitties.

It looks bad, I suppose it will inspire you?...stitches and torn tissue! Heal quick and don't let little kitty pull at the stitch.
