It seems that I seem to start a lot of posts with "poor Kiki" and this one is no exception! Just when she seems to be getting over her attack and subsequent surgery, she has another open wound about a cm away from the other 3 inch scar! She had just started enjoying life outside again, particularly happy basking in the sunny weather at the weekend. She was busy running around, jumping over walls and fences, playing with her cat friends and generally loving her freedom.
We even uncovered a secret of hers in the past few days ... she had a secret stash of stuff! Apparently she had been hoarding things under the fridge freezer. Is this normal for small cats or is she just a naughty little thing? We found 3 toy mice, 5 rolled up balls of tin foil, a clothes peg and a pile of wood kindling (worryingly they were shaped like mini vampire stakes)!! It's just a shame she hadn't taken to hiding valuable things under there or we could have made a fortune!
She was most certainly was almost back to normal, albeit with a 3 inch scar, until we saw a flash of blood red on her bottom again. My heart dropped and we rushed her to the vet. We were worried she had been attacked again and that the damage might be more serious. Thankfully it turns out that the skin around the old wound had just burst and she only had to stay in kitty hospital for one night this time. So, she's home. All stiched up, with her old friend the buster collar again. She is supposed to be resting but has been zooming around the front room like she has swallowed a rocket and I've just seen Rhid developing a game of throwing things into her collar! The closest thing to quiet she has been was when she sat on my huge pile of marking, it's just a pity that she didn't get my red pen out and give me a hand!
