Kender's Tripawd Journey

Day 2

Today was a pretty good day!  Kender still isn’t moving around a whole lot, but I think that’s better for her so early on.  She’s getting lots of healing rest.  I might get rid of the crate tomorrow and just give her free reign of the room. Her pain seems to be controlled really well with the fentanyl patch.  The first night home the vet suggested giving her the Buprenex also to make sure she wasn’t in pain and then to watch for signs of pain after that.  She has seemed ok, but I’ve been giving her a dose before I go to bed at night to be sure she isn’t in pain during the night when there’s no one to notice.

She’s eating lots of dry food now and totally ignored the wet stuff I brought her today.  Drinking a good amount of water too.  She’s such a weird cat…never really been into cat treats and will very rarely eat any sort of people food that most cats would like (fish, chicken, etc.)  I guess that’s better for her at this point…I have to spoil her with pets instead of fattening treats 😉

She tracked litter all over her main blanket.  When I moved her to the other one to shake it out, she immediately got up to walk back to me for more pets haha  I got a quick video of part of it and uploaded it to my fb.  But I can’t figure out how to embed it in the post like I can with my pictures, but you can click here to view it.  She also tried climbing into my lap last night, but got confused when it came to getting her back foot up on me.

While I was in petting her tonight, I folded her cone down.  After about 10-15 mins she very sneakily reached around and started licking at her stitches!  I stopped her right away, which she was quite cranky about, and put her cone back up.  But she was determined and reached right back around and started trying to lick through her cone.  Silly kitty!  Then she tried to trick me into thinking she was trying to groom her tail.  Folded her cone back down a tiny bit so she could and she went straight back to the stitches…and gave me another grumpy growl when I stopped her.  Sorry Kender…it’s better than getting stitches redone at the emergency clinic tonight!  I hope she isn’t sneaky enough to get her cone folded down when I’m not around to notice.

Licking her cone, trying to get at her stitches!
