Another Trip to the Vet!!

Mama had to take my sisters back to the veterinarian first thing this morning. Last night, Dad saw Bandit licking her incision, and when he checked it, it was starting to open. So Mama checked Smoky's and it was opening too, so they called the vet, who told them to just put my sisters in tee shirts to keep them from licking, which they hadn't been doing before. Mama and Dad were really mad! So Mama left me and Avi with Dad first thing, and loaded my sisters into the car with bandages wrapped around their bellies to keep them from licking.

She didn't even have to yell at them. Boy, were they sucking up, to hear her tell it! They were really pleasant about the whole thing. They took Smoky and Bandit in the back, put staples in their bellies (ouch!), finally put cones on their heads, gave Mama a prescription for both of them at no charge, and even gave her some of the toys they were selling--took them right off the shelf and pulled off the tags for her to take them home!

Since the girls got home this time, they've been really funny! They can't see very well with the cones on, so they've been beating up on Mama and Dad. Mama says she's going to be in the hospital soon, with circular stab wounds that will make the doctors wonder, because Smoky doesn't navigate very well with the cone on, but she has learned to use the cone to herd Mama in the direction she wants her to go! Bandit navigates better, but Mama and Dad have to keep getting them unstuck from different places.

I'm not allowed to play with them right now either, because Mama says I play too rough, and she doesn't want to take any chances. So I'm really, really bored, because I can't roughhouse with Avi either, because she's too small. But Mama makes special time to go out and roughhouse with me in the run, so that's okay.

Woos till next time,
