Well, I'm updating for Avail because she's not feeling so well. She had 2 nodules removed near her mammary, the actual mammary gland and then a section of the tissue surrounding it in hopes that she will have clean margins. We really have our paws crossed over here for our sweet baby girl.
Right now she's all wrapped up in a bandage to help compress the area so she doesn't have fluid build up that could cause her not to heal properly or quickly. She's refusing her pain medication, but I've been giving her all the snacks she wants for being such a good girl. She's having so much trouble getting around and I know that's so depressing to her because she's a very active little ball of fuzz.
I know she would want me to thank everyone out there for all of the love and support and I know she misses everyone so much! I know she would like me to tell you that she's thinking of all of you out there and hopes she gets to come back on here soon.
Thank you everyone for all of the well wishes, MommyCat appreciates it all so much too.

Wishing the very best for you Avail and that your surgery was successful and they got all of it. Paws are crossed over here too. We hope you recover from your surgery with out too much discomfort.
Hugs to you and MommyCat too,
Zack and Zoey
Sending her lots of POTP!
I remember those days and you can just make her comfy, give her lots of love and keep her from moving around too much. The first few days are the hardest for you both.
I know my angel Tallulah is with her and watching over her.sending our love hugs and special angel healing dust from QT
I was in a large cage for a week as the vet didn't want me to pull out stitches. I was given buphnonpex...probably spelled wrong liquid in little does in syringes to put in my mouth. Mommy would just shoot it in my mouth. I never stopped eating with the pain meds...
I would suggest:
1) She may do better in a cage if you can borrow one, with a nice bed inside and a small litter box. It can bring a sense of comfort, especially if you partially cover it with a sheet over the top (it creates a den effect and can make a cat feel more secure when they aren't feeling well-it's why they hide).
2) Request liquid pain meds in a syringe. Easier to put in her mouth and squeeze in.
3) Love and pet her and let her rest. They are amazing, and unlike us, know to rest and heal.
4) Take it easy on yourself...and know you aren't alone. WE are all purring for you.
