Last night was a hard night for Kitty. For one thing, she’s a very clean puppy and doesn’t want to soil her bedding. Unfortunately, after being on fluids during her surgery she really had to pee a lot. She just couldn’t seem to get comfortable, and kept climbing off the wet spot to find some place dry. Of course moving hurt, so she would cry from the pain.
Then I dozed off for an hour and when I woke up, she was sitting next to the sofa looking up at me… I was shocked, but I knew exactly what she was trying to tell me. “I’m hungry!” So she took a tiny bit of food. Sadly, the position she has to be in is extremely painful with her body as sore as it is. I just try to reassure her and keep her calm. But I knew as soon as she started chewing on my necklace (a favorite past time), that she was getting back to herself, even in spite of the pain.
