We ended up deciding to transfer our cat over to our regular vet for some extra care, so she didn’t come home until today.
She’s eating well, but with the broken front leg and the cone around her head, I’ve been helping with holding the food up so she can reach it more easily (I can’t figure out how to get the cone off for her to eat, and I’m scared to handle her at this point).
The kids are being really well behaved about all this. I’ve told them that they can keep her company sitting by the kennel, but they have to stay quiet and not touch her, and so far they’ve been perfectly obedient about it. Of course, she’s a pretty pathetic sight at the moment, and they’re probably just as scared of accidentally hurting her as I am.
At this point, all that’s left to do is to keep an eye on our cat and keep up with her medications.
Probably time to catch up on some sleep.
