Freya's tale

Our journey starts with a single step on three legs

Day 5 AA – Merry Xmas

Well, last night I left Freya on the lounge in her favourite position and she didn’t leave there all night.  While I felt a little lonely with no cat on the bed I think she was just content to be there. In fact she spent the majority of the day there, albeit sometimes imposed by me as I had people over for lunch and then I went to a friend’s place for Xmas dinner. I got a miaow when I got home, and she was standing at the door to come out of the lounge as she was anxious to get out and get fed some more.

The incision is still looking good and while she does lick over it a bit, she is not fixating on it so I’ve left the Cone of Shame off. The antibiotics are nearly over so we’ll see how it goes over the next few days. She is often sleeping or sitting on the incision side of her body so I am assuming her pain medication is working. I might keep it going for another day or two.

Freya is getting around OK although she hasn’t tried to get on the table again, but she has gone up the long way on the couch again (up the arm) and this time she did it really well!  She did have an issue when she did a solid elimination this morning but that was more to do with the fact that it was quite liquid (due to medications I believe) and it ran onto her foot.  Her crouching to eliminate seems fine and she seems steady.

Apart from that, not too much to report. We are on the couch again as I type and she  is curled up against me. Another good day. Hard to believe it is five days since the operation as she is so good.

Wow, Freya looks great! She doesn’t look like she’s been through a major surgery just 5 days ago! Amazing! Hope you and Freya have a wonderful holiday!

Freya, you are such a good kitty for not bothering your stitches! Most dogs can’t handle them and mess ’em up. You rock!
