Bella is back home!
Bella is recovering from her surgery and is back home. She has a new stump area, sutures and a head cone. Bella has to stay in a thickly padded pen for 2 weeks. Her sutures will come out next Saturday. She doesn't like the cone but will get more use to it as the days go by. The problem area (ischiatic) has also been shaved down and made more smooth, so hopefully this won't cause such a pressure point from inside her stump. Time will tell how things heal. Thank you all for your wonderful support and caring messages about Bella. I've given her lots of hugs from you all! Thanks to Dawn S. for the great box last night. Lots of things! Dried salmon cube treats, bonito sprinkles, lots of toys, pill pockets, garden greens, catnip bubbles, Thanks Dawn. The new dark gray kitten is here in the rescue center, but in Dodger's Pen. Her name is CJ, after our web cam friend. She's very thin but eating good. A very sweet girl. Hope Nuki had a happy birthday this week! We are expecting Speedy and Apollo (web cam friends) to visit us today. Tomorrow, Friday at noon, DCTV will film here again at the rescue center. Tasco is such a beautiful cat. He loves watching the birds from the cat shelves, even will share "his space" with the other cats. Kurt Williams neck continues to be just fine. I'm not ready yet to remove his collar though. That Cobbis is one ornery fella. Then if Hudson gets involved with Cobbis--watch out! They are an ornery twosome. Cinnabon and Hettie are another twosome that sure can run and play hard together.
