Miss Mousie's surgery went well! We picked her up on Saturday morning. She's going back this morning to have the drain tubes removed from her ears.
Although she is tired, she is happy to be home. She is eating, using her litter box and wanting as much attention as she can get. Yes, she's her same self which is such a relief.
The kids are a little scared of the way Miss Mousie looks. She looks very different with her head shaved, sutures in her ears and tubes sticking out dripping blood. Oh, and she has the dreaded collar on aka the cone of shame. She'll need to wear this until her stitches are removed. But no matter what she looks like, she's still our sweet girl!
If you've been keeping up with the updates on her Facebook page, we've decided not to post pictures of her right now. Cat lovers understand the effects of an invasive surgery like TECA, but we would hate for any pictures to be turned into memes. Miss Mousie deserves better. We are taking pictures to chronicle her journey, just not posting them at this time. We hope you understand.
Also, author Sue-Ellen Welfonder, who has been a key person in helping Miss Mousie, is running a contest in honor of Miss Mousie's surgery. Check it out on the Tartan Ink blog. Click here!
Thanks again for all your support and prayers! They mean so much to Miss Mousie and all of us!
