Well, I am back- I think! Mike is home and it is a learning curve for sure dealing with his limitations at this time. The cats are no longer fleeing in terror when they hear the chair coming- and Mike was a bit miffed that Taylor hid from him for a few days and didn’t want any part of him. I told him it was because he smells funny- new smells the cats aren’t used to- the therapy center, the medicine and other odd smells. Taylor finally decided last night she would sleep with him again.
There are day care nurses coming in to take some of the load off of me. They are wrapping his leg and doing his vitals and just keeping him monitored. He does have a new growth near where they cut the old one off- so we go back to the doctor’s soon to find out why.
I got really sick while tending to all my sick kitties and am just now rebounding back a bit. I only have four active sick kitties now and Ashford and I had a long talk about the feline herpesvirus load he brought into the house!
The two girls in the bedroom- they are such a trip. Secret, the kitten- she wants me to pet her oh so bad. I can see it in her eyes and so I took the plunge and as long as I only pet her back and sides, we are buds. Touch her head- and she hisses at me and ducks underneath the bed again. But she loves to be stroked on her back, and I have to be careful because Mom is on the watch. When I pet Secret- Smuggles paw comes out from under the bed (fully armed) SWAT! She nails me! LOL i think she believes i am trying to hurt her kitten. But I did sneak in a pet on her this morning and boy was she surprised!
So life right now is a learning curve for all of us here and we are just taking it a day at a time. Anything beyond that is to overwhelming to consider.
