The day we worried about happened

Monet in the badly 
designed onesie

How long does it take to fall in love?  My husband and I say it was 
immediate. And how long does it take to fall in love with a pet?
We've had Monet for 16 weeks, and I don't know when love swept in, 
but it certainly is here now, at a high level, and today our little cat
got spade. 

So now the hard part begins -- keeping a very active, wildly energetic,
superbly intelligent animal safe during the two weeks of recovery, and away
from the older cat, and the dog, who of course are horribly curious about
what's going on.  The onesie solution is better than the six inch hard collar,
but not much. Fingers crossed that all goes well.

We are both exhausted -- that's love -- we didn't sleep just because we
knew this was happening.

Have a loving your pets day.

Hi Evelyn,

I'm sure I did too. OMG she was such a darling little kitten -- about 4 ounces in
weight. But now -- oh my -- she is family, and she will get better soon.
