She is on metacam for comfort for the next few days.
It's good that I can stay around and watch her; plans have been put on hold just for this week.
The mouse-house is so tiny that to put her in one room and remove all things that she could jump up on would be impossible. There is no room to use. My vet knows that Audrey would not do well in a crate while she heals. Can you imagine? My life (after) would never be the same. So...I be the nurse & watch-dog. lol
She wanted in the sunshine so that's where I put her. Her tail is still limp but her vet expects no change there for a few days.
The sun is lifting everyone's spirit today. Could spring finally be arriving at the mouse-house? I have veggies to plant in starter pots and then soon they will go out to my portable green-house that is near where the garden will be. That will be in May. I dream of a real potting shed that I can decorate and play with but that will come after the house is built. I have some friendly chickadees that sat in the brush beside me while I took a break from cat-patrol and added shelves to the green-house. They were fascinated in all that I was doing and made for pretty cute company.
They are the sweetest little birds.
One lone downy woodpecker stayed around to watch me work, too.
He was showing off his spot of red.
By mid-week we are in for some warmer weather and by the weekend it will be beautiful (+20C) . I can't wait to start cleaning up the out-doors and preparing for flower gardens.
I'm watching the five bird-houses for prospective tenants but so far have just seen birds fly in and fly out. No nesting materials have been brought in as far as I can see.
There is lots of courting going on mostly amongst the mourning doves. If they nest here it will be in the shrubs or lower branches of the trees. That would be nice to see. :)
Thank you for your kind comments wishing Audrey a quick recovery. I can see that the pain-killer is really keeping her comfy and she is lovin' all the extra attention and freeze-dried chicken that magically appears for her enjoyment. She's even tolerating the extra hugs and kisses. haha! God, I love her. ♥
Back to cat patrol. =^..^=
