When I picked her up, 5 hours later, she was still so doped up, she just bobbed her head from side to side.. not making a noise... barely able to hold her fuzzy head up.. Still, feeling bad.
Got the darling home, and she crawled out of the kitty carrier. Her back legs? not working very well :(. She was so pitiful. She tried to get to Gary, but he went and scouped her, and snuggled her in his lap, after wrapping her up in her blanket. SHe took turns, sleeping on our laps all night. Then slept with us in our bed.
The next morning? It was almost like nothing happened. She seems a bit tender, duh! But is jumping and moving like nothing happened. I am supposed to take her back in 8 more days to get the stitches removed. I think we may attempt that project on our own..
There was no question to have her spayed though. She did come in heat once. It was bad. She spent hours talking to the walls, the ceiling, the kitty condo. She tried to make time with the other kitties, all whom are fixed. They would have none of her tomfoolery. They just swatted her , held her down, and cleaned her head. (that is their solution to any discipline issues regarding Mao) She has a very clean head.
If everyone would take the time, and spend the money (its so worth it) to have their pet spayed or neutered, there would not be such a huge amount of unwanted pets. I would adopt more, if we had the space.
I wish I was that resilient....
