I don't have much for you today as I have been playing caregiver. Callie had to have surgery on her bum last week. Due to frequent impaction and infections they had to remove her anal glands. Yikes.
I understand it is quite a painful recovery, kind of like hemorrhoid surgery in humans. My job is to make sure she doesn't lick or bite at her stitches-- something we humans seldom do:)) Even with the Elizabethan collar, she can still reach her butt. The advantage of a long nose.
It is a pretty constant job. Just now I had to yell at her to "stop it" and I hate having to do that. She looks so hurt at my stern warnings.
Mostly she is liquored up on pain killers and a sedative to keep her quiet. I give her almost nonstop petting for distraction but she still manages a quick lick when I leave her to attend to regular chores. Oh well, hopefully for her sake, this will pass soon.
Only other thing I have is to report on is this visitor to my Hummingbird feeder.
