Tough Week

I haven't been particularly busy, but I also haven't had time to do much. How did that happen? Well, Sadie had to go to the V-E-T this past Tuesday to be spayed. Most of my free time since then has been devoted to nursing the poor girl. At her first vet visit, the vet warned me that beagles tend to be "drama queens" when it comes to things like surgery. She wasn't kidding!

As far as I can tell, Sadie's surgery and recovery has been perfectly normal, but she has demanded a LOT of attention. The first day or so was absolutely miserable, for her and for me. She was on pain meds, but was still clearly uncomfortable. It has improved quite a bit since then, although she continues to be rather clingy and needy. She also can't go on any car rides until the stitches come out (in another 8 or 10 days). She doesn't like this one bit, as car rides are one of her very favorite things.

I've gotten some stitching done this week, but don't have any photos to show for it. Tradewinds got a little attention... not enough to photograph, though. The only real progress I made this week was on a Christmas ornament. I completed the stitching on Friday, but can't show a picture of it, because it is for an exchange. I still need to put it together, along with a bunch of other projects in the FUFO pile.

Since there are no stitching pictures to share, here's a gratuitous kitty photo. The box had been used to move a few things from my condo to the house, and little Zoe took possession of it before we had a chance to get it out of the room. She likes it so much that we've just left it where it is. Maybe she'll tire of it eventually, but for now, we have a new "cat box" in the den. LOL

And of course, I can't resist posting a photo of Sadie with her favorite toy. She doesn't know that it's meant for the cats. LOL

Cats just love other way around it!

Glad to hear Sadie is recovering well from her surgery, poor girl!

Hi Juanita,
Your cat is beautiful! He looks like a Maine he as chatty as one? My Maggie (who passed last year) loved boxes. I used to leave one out too once she commandeered it. Too funny.

Poor you and poor Sadie! Hopefully she will back to rights soon.

Oh, poor Sadie and poor you!!! I understand about doggie drama, LOL! But for REAL drama, you should be there when my horse has an *owie*. He believes he is dying!

Love your kitty box, at least this one doesn't need cleaning! Beautiful kitty too!

Poor Sadie! I hope that she's feeling better already and not being quite so dramatic. ;)
