My bitty kitton is 6 months old today!
She is also healing wonderfully from the spay. I kept her in the Suitical through Sunday, as it kept her from mucking with her incision. She did figure out the snaps on it, so I had to keep fastening her back into it. At the point where I got tired of that, I just undressed her and let the skinny naked kitty run free.
And run she did. She is supposed to stay calm for 10-14 days after the spay, but there was no restraint on her part once that suit came off. Given that she is healing beautifully, I am letting her do her normal Kitton Missions (even though I truly don't understand the purpose of them, lol).
Happy Birthday little girl!!!
My bitty kitton is recovering well from her spay... well, she will continue to recover well if she will just stop climbing on things for a bit!
The first day she did great. I think it was in part that she was hopped up on pain medication, and so was a bit sleepy, but she merely alternated between sleeping on my lap and on her kitten bed. She is incredibly easy to pill and to give oral syringe meds too, unlike her predecessor. She is also very adorable in her little suitical recovery suit!
We bought this item from Amazon, but you can also get it at popular pet shopping sites like Chewey. Siada does NOT do well with a Collar of Shame (even a soft one), but wears her harness well so we opted to try this. So far, it is great. She did get the snaps undone yesterday, but I refastened them and so far it is fine. I plan to take it off of her tonight, but it definitely kept her from worrying at the incision, even if it makes her walk like John Wayne.
Day 3 Post-Op did not go as smoothly as the previous ones. She is now wanting to run, climb and play. I am hoping I can keep her somewhat calm for a few more days at least, but she is being exceptionally feisty.
Bitty kitton got spayed this morning! Surgery went fine and she is recovering for a bit at the vet's office before we go reclaim her. Now the real worry begins, because keeping this little girl calm for a few days might be the death of me.
Here is a video of Nimar just a few hours after he was fixed. NOthing seems to ever phase these cats!
After the years of Nimar's health issues, I am understandably nervous about Siada's spay this week. To alleviate that tension, I decided to keep busy by making her a little tote that will contain her suitical recovery suit, her cone of shame and food when she goes to the vet tomorrow.
It really is so adorable that I cannot stand it.
And here, of course, are obligatory cute kitton pics (she did not want me to finish my dinner last night)!
Last night I was sitting on the sofa and Siada was savaging what was left of a roll of paper towels next to me. She got up and moved to sit on her papa's belly, and I shifted position, only to feel a stabbing pain in my thigh. I started feeling around in a panic thinking one of my sewing pins had gotten embedded in the cushion, only to discover I had been stabbed by a dislodged baby tooth. Fortunately, that also gave me a clear explanation for the panic-inducing spot of blood I also found on the paper towels.
I noticed around August 4th that Siada had two sets of fangs on both the top and the bottom of her mouth. Her adult teeth were coming in and pushing up along side the baby teeth. By 8/11 she had lost both of the bottom baby-fangs. On 8/20 I checked the top teeth, and she still double fangs, when I looked again on 8/21 (her 5 month birthday) she had lost both of the small ones.
My little baby is growing up!
