So on Monday my best bud Charlie had his hip surgery, and luckily everything went well! I was really confused when he was gone all day and got super excited when he got home! But I wasn't allowed to interact with him much, he has to stay in a large crate though he can come out (and is encourage to so he can stretch out his legs)for short times when someone is watching him. Well when they first put him that crate I want in there! I jumped all over it and stuck my paw in wherever I could! Char was not really amused but I just wanted to be with him!
The peeps decided to keep Tommy the work cat here all week (he usually just stays here on the weekends) so I would have a full time cuddle & play buddy, but my attention was still on Charlie. Whenever he got out of his cage I made sure to be sweet with him and give lots of headbonks. And when it was open I would sneak into his cage and take a nap on his bed! I have also been enjoying digging in his litterbox and creating big messes, the peeps don't really enjoy it much. I try to keep on eye on Charlie as best I can. When he was at the vets, he is very hard to handle so after his surgery they put him in large carrier so he had enough room to wake up and move around but he could be sent home in it without being messed with much. Well the big carrier is sitting right next to Char's "recovery space" and it has become my new favorite spot. Tommy likes sleeping inside of it but I love perching ontop of it! The peeps put a towel ontop of it and now I am always there, right next Charlie. And if a peep comes downstairs while I am laying in this spot I will rush over to them, meowing like crazy, and then run to Charlie's cage to tell them to check on him. I am a good nurse Dora.

You are a great nurse! Wanting to protect your brother is an amazing quality. You should be so proud of yourself.
You guys have a work kitty, how cool. I wish I was a work kitty but Diamond has that job instead. We are opposite tough, Di gets to go to the shop with Mom and with Mom having a full time job somewhere else, Di is only there at night and on the weekends. Maybe, I could talk Mom into letting me greet customers one Saturday.
Nice that you let your work kitty come to be with you...he might feel the desire to stay??
Purrs to you fur being a good kitty nurse!
Charlie is furry lucky to have such a good nurse and furriend.
you are a good nursie Miss Dora.
Keep up the good work Dora! That is an excellent big-girl trait:) Purrs!
I know this is a little late but thanks pals!! I think I did a pretty great job as his nurse. Though now that he is feeling a lot better and things are starting to get a bit back to normal I have decided to just return to being his bff instead. Which means picking on him. Hehe. Sometimes when I am feeling extra playful and frisky I will go up to him and smack his leg (on the side the surgery was done) just to make him mad!
And work kitty Tommy is the best! He stays with us every weekend & holidays & has before I came along. They used to have 2 work cats: Dennis who was a feral outside of the building & was caught by the peeps about 2years ago & with lots of time and love they helped me become a sweet friendly boy. The summer of 2011 Tommy was found as a stray sickly kitten & because D love him they decided to keep him so they could be buds. Sadly in November 2011 Dennis died very suddenly over night & Tommy was left on his own for the 1st time. They just could not let him stay there during the weekends by himslef. So he started coming over here! The peeps say that at some point here will be a full time kitty here but will continue to bring him to work right now because he still likes it so much.
