Its amazing how pets melt our hearts.
What amazes me most is how I can’t picture my life or my home without them.
When Lia had her surgery last week, I have to admit I really missed her. The house seemed empty without her running about. She loves to drag her toys around to anyone who will play with her. Such a little joy! I know Pinty missed her too.
Imagine my surprise and concern when she, five days after surgery, was still not her usual self. She lingered in my room all day. Slept and got up very few times.
I encouraged her to eat her wet food and I would place her in the box which I call the “potty” so she could do her business. I felt so sad for her!
Then Thursday came and finally! she ate and wanted more. She went onto the potty on her own and, like a mom, I cheered! What a little trooper! So very proud of her!
She’s been eating fine since then and back to playing and hopping everywhere.
Unfortunately… two things:
- The vet still has to close her umbilical hernia, so I am dreading her undergoing yet another surgery, albeit much less intrusive. That happens this weekend.
- And oh boy, my boy Pinty has been acting up since then. I can’t quite pinpoint what it is, but he stopped eating his food as he used to, and has very stinky potty times even after changing his food.
I’m monitoring him for now and dreading this weekend when Lia goes back under the knife. My poor sweet little lady. And my awesome little man!
We will all try to keep our fingers/paws crossed that all will be ok. I am so thankful to have these little furballs as pets. They are such love and bring everyone so much joy (including my mom).
I get concerned for them, they are my world!
How do you deal with your cats’ illnesses or surgeries if any?
