Kender's Tripawd Journey

What do I know?

I was thinking it would be best for Kender to stay in the spare room until her stitches come out and her cone comes off.  But what do I know?  Throughout her recovery, she’s shown me how overprotective I am and have no idea what I’m doing haha

Over the last couple of days she’s tried (and sometimes succeeded) to escape the room.  Depending on conditions, I started letting her stay out for a while.  But need to make sure she can’t get injured by the other animals or the kids.  Also that she doesn’t let herself get stuck somewhere with her cone.

Happily sunbathing a few days ago

This morning she started meowing at the door shortly after she realized we were up.  She didn’t want my company…she just wanted out!  So I shut the bedroom doors (don’t want her under the beds or trying to jump onto them) and let her come out.  She seems to be very pleased about that!  She hasn’t even growled at Dalamar (our other cat) the whole time!  Even when he came over to sniff right in her face.  They have a love/hate sort of relationship 😉  He loves to antagonize her, and she hates it haha…they’ve agreed to coexist for their own sakes and occasionally (rarely) show affection for one another.

She spent most of her time in the dining room because she likes sunbathing there.  This afternoon I realized she wasn’t in there anymore and went looking for her.  Imagine my surprise when I found her on the couch!  She likely had help from the throw pillow on the floor and blanket hanging off the edge (thanks to the kids).  I guess a messy house can be useful at times 😛  Eventually, I had to move her back to the room so I could make dinner without worrying about the 1.5 year old hurting her…she’s still working on gentle hands.  Kender escaped afterwards though when the oldest checked on her and didn’t close the door well.  I discovered she was out by finding her back on the couch 😉  I’m a little bummed I missed her getting up there both times.

Comfy kitty!


She’s doing so great!  I’m sure she’s capable of way more than I realize at this point.  It’ll be so great to get her stitches out in 3 days and ditch the cone for good.  Then she can really start getting back to “normal” life…with a little help getting to a few places she wants to go.

    Aw how cute. Kender really likes her couch.

    life is much easier when the stitches come out for sure. I bet she’ll be relieved to be without her cone.

    I’m so glad she’s doing so well! Keep it up Kender!

    Steve wanted nothing to do with being confined. She even tried to climb a baby gate (which she eventually just plowed through)!

    It’s a great feeling, isn’t it!? Great job, Kender! You enjoy that couch!!
