I am just back from the vet with Audrey. Unfortunately, she took a re-action to the suitchers from her incision and she is on anti-biotics for 1 week and rest. Poor, poor Audrey. We thought all was going so well and then yesterday I saw some swelling and sure enough we had a problem. There was infection behind the incision. She is now in the spare room again for complete rest. She thinks of it, I'm sure, as her time-out room. I feel so bad for her. She acts fine, eats fine, uses her box fine, purrs when you pet her and seems all-around jolly but she has to be kept quiet. I will let her out in the evenings when I can keep a close eye on her and I have to keep track of the swelling. She is not to jump and she should stay off the stairs a few days. That would be impossible if she is not 'shut away'.
I was thinking back to all the cats we have had spayed. Not one ever had a problem with healing. Not one. And I think we had around 8 females spayed. If a cat will have some problems and I will have some worries it will of course be with Audrey.
I had to close the give-away at 5:30 tonight as I am heading out to celebrate my oldest daughter's birthday.So, the retired-guy helped with picking the winning name today for the give-away. All names were placed in his fishing hat and he did the honours.
The winning name ishttp://sweetpurrfections.blogspot.ca/ with Truffle & Brulee. Congratulations to 2 beautiful cats and mom, Paula. Please send me your address and postal code and your gift will be shipped off to you very soon. Enjoy your new teas in a pretty tea-cup, Paula. Hope you enjoy the treats, sweet kitties.
Well, I guess I'll be turning the spare room/time-out room into my reading room just so little Audrey doesn't get lonely. Wish us luck with her recovery. We need it.
