A somewhat abbreviated Pansy update with some new photos (along with some Ari thrown in for good measure)...
Pansy was spayed a couple of weeks back. (And huge, huge thanks again to drinkingcocoa
for her assistance!) She was remarkably chill about the whole experience. Didn't make a peep in the carrier or car, and when I picked her up in the evening, she was just hanging out in her carrier among the many, many just-spayed-or-neutered cats in carriers. (One of said cats was very angry
and wanted everyone to know it, b'god. He was rattling his cage and taking swipes at anyone who came near. LOL)
The vet's instructions: Feed her half what she normally eats that night and restrict her to light activity for seven to ten days. My response: AHAHAHAHAHA, RIGHT!
The first thing Pansy did when we got home was eat all the food I gave her, then go eat most of the roommate's cat's food, then go eat some of Ari's. After that, she proceeded to spend the next two hours gleefully batting her mousie around the apartment. (Honestly, how
is one supposed to restrict a kitten's activity without the use of strong sedatives and/or duct tape?!)
I kept a close eye on her incision site, but she healed up jut fine. She clearly wasn't bothered by the experience at all
. She was so un
bothered, as a matter of fact, that she was voluntarily playing inside the cat carrier the day after her surgery. ::shakes head:: Either she shares some characteristics with simple dog
, or she figures she has loads of lives left.
Oh, and at the time of her spaying (at just under six months old), she was 6.4 pounds. :)
Anyway, the long-awaited new pics:
