I didn't really get to sleep until 4-7 this morning. After a couple hours of thrashing, growling, spinning and hissing, she walked around the dining table and went to the litter box. She was so tired, that I had to pull her out (by the scruff). I used an electric blanket for Chloe, and it seemed to keep her comfortable, so I used it for Fiona. She is comfortable on it, and I get the chance to clean her up a little. I use those earth wipes and then brush her. I have had cats before (for 19 years--since I was 8). I know that as long as you are slow, they can see your hands, you look them in the eye and tell them what you are doing they won't freak out (the tone calms them). She lets me touch her hind feet and tail when I clean her, but will scream like a banshee if I touch her feet with my finger. I don't know if she will even let me take her to the vet on Monday to take off the Fetinol patch. I am going to ask if I can do it myself, and wait until she can get her stitches off (2 weeks) before we make another vet trip.
She loves head rubs, and even played with me a little. Chloe was easier to take care of, but I am getting through it. I am so grateful the weekend is coming up. My mom will take "watch" for a couple hours so I can sleep.
