I called the vet to get some advice about pain medication. We were up all night. She is so sensitive and erratic that if I touch a blanket near her tail end, she has a fit. She is a good girl and doesn't bite, but it is alarming and stressful. I have feliway plugs just about everywhere, but she is in pain. She hasn't gotten the hang of moving around yet. She squirms. I tried making a path of food for her to follow, but she ends up in the wrong direction.

I guess I am having a hard time trying to figure out where to draw the line. Since it is only the second day after her surgery, I don't mind carrying her around right now, but then I have to figure out when to stop.

I think things will get better. We sure are purring for that to happen. Kitties are very resilient and we purr that Fiona and Chloe will make a full recovery.
