. . . the kittens are at the vet's, being spayed. I had to fill in a form before their op and the wording is scary - dreading the phone ringing in case something has gone wrong in the ops. Lulu has an umbilical hernia, so she is definitely going to feel rough for a couple of days. Plus they are being microchipped and have to have cones on to stop them pulling at stitches, but I bought a 2nd soft doughnut one so hopefully they will be more comfortable in those.
I managed to keep it together when I was at the vet's, and was SO relieved to see it was BOTH the vets I trust and know to be kind and gentle with cats. Pippi didn't mind going into her travelling box but Lulu obviously has a longer memory and had to be bundled in - yet SHE wasn't the one to have such a painful jab last time - it was Pippi.
I collect them at 4 p.m. Will do an update later.
I've been doing some decorating to take my mind off it, but couldn't have Audible on in case I missed the phone. I will keep them up in the yellow bedroom for a few days as if they try and get in their kitten hammocks under the sofa with collars on, they may get stuck.
Well, I have them home but they have already both shed their doughnuts. I put Lulu's back on 3 times, only to have her do a backflip to get rid of it again, and I thought that might damage her internal stitches, so have left it off. Turned my back, and Pippi's shed hers too . . . They are both SO PLEASED to be home. They have to go in on Monday for a checkup.
Just for a special outing on Sunday, Keith has to go to Hereford for an MRI scan of his middle back . . . Glad it's not a 9 a.m. appt. this time!
