And so...

The girls were spayed and declawed last Saturday. By Monday, both seemed to be on speaking terms with me. By today, Penny was really acting chipper, even a little playful again.


But Bella? Bella has cleaned and picked at her wounds for hours, as she dealt with the emotional after-effects of impotent paws and a sore tummy.

She would. not. stop.

And this morning, she actually ripped her outer set of stitches out. Then she started to feel a little woozy, a little lightheaded. And needy. And like she didn't want anyone to touch her. Nice combination. Of course we took her in to the vet right away. The antibiotics are already working. But there's no breaking her bad habits.

And so...








She wears the Cone of Shame.

Bwahahaha!

I'm sorry. I know it's not funny. I really do feel bad for her (especially since I am totally a cat person) but...C'mon...Look at her! ;)

Hope she's feeling better soon!

She looks the way our dog did when he had to wear the "cone of shame." He hated every minute of it! Hope she is feeling better soon:)
