Cautiously optimistic is how the vet described how he was feeling about Daisy’s recovery when we saw him this morning. And funnily enough, that’s exactly how I’m feeling too. All the signs are really good, she didn’t have a temperature, her lungs sounded perfect, she’s eating a little and not vomiting up her food. She did vomit a little last night, but it was all fluid which is pretty normal after such a surgery. She did that one wonderful poop and she did another very small poop today. I would barely even count it as a poop, but I still congratulated her on it. And most importantly, she’s acting like Daisy.
Our other two cats’ reactions to Daisy’s return have been really interesting. Maisie is clearly the top cat in the house, I think she might even be above me in the hierarchy, and she didn’t even look twice at Daisy. Daisy was really happy to see her, but Maisie was much more interested in what Daisy was having for dinner. Maisie didn’t get a taste though, because of her diabetes she only gets special food. Zelda, however, acted like she’d seen a ghost. She circled poor Daisy and cautiously sniffed her, and today she even hissed at her a couple of times. I imagine it will settle down pretty quickly, but it was very interesting to observe. Like my very own nature documentary.
I finally feel like sewing again. I have been totally avoiding my sewing room because it made me feel a little sick to see that spool of thread. But now that we’re “cautiously optimistic” I think I can get back in the saddle, so to speak. I also need to get some more pouches ready to go, because my Etsy store is looking very bare! Remember, you can get 30% off with coupon code DAISY. I packed up all the orders today and will post them out tomorrow. It’s lucky I love wrapping presents so much.
Not the most flattering photo, but I like it. Very Daisy.
