My so-called glamourous life

Bunyip is home, but she hasn't eaten yet. If she doesn't eat, she has to go back in. She is hurting and confused and untrusting. She is wearing one of those elizabethan collars, to stop her from damaging her wound, but which also prevents her from cleaning herself. Last night was punctuated by not only moping up puddles of cat pee (because she is terrified of her litter tray), but cleaning afore mentioned cat pee from a cat who is often scared of me now. She is snoozing on the couch now, having spent all night snoozing on the bed. How do I know this? Because I woke up every hour, frightened for her.

There is nothing I can do to make it any better for her. But she is warm and comfortable and safe, and no longer confined in a strange cage. I'll be making a brief trip to the supermarket sometime today, to get her some tasty, tempting food. I'm not going to uni today, but I have to go to wrok this evening.

I just wish there was more that I could do.

There really isn't much more that you can do. I think that cats appreciate patience, though - if you just keep on doing what you can, she'll eventually get more comfortable around people again.

I know I'd be a little skittish around people if I'd last encountered them waving hypodermic needles and scalpels at me...

we always wish there was more we could do to alleviate the suffering of a loved one. we feel helpless, hoping there was something we could do to make it all go away so they feel better. more often than not the attention and the caring is appreciated and they know your intentions are good.

Well, I don't know if you know this, but while it's ideally done from a distance of about fifteen centimetres from the subject, reiki can in fact be done from any distance. Any distance at all.

So I'm reiki-ing Bunyip right now. Calm, soothing, healing waves of reiki energy are beaming their way across the ether, unneringly aimed towards an unsuspecting Bunyip.

Also, I'm sending hungry-vibes, because god knows I've got enough of them to spare.

Do what you can, its often all you can do and just as often enough. *hugs*

Just keep showing her love. Cats are pretty intuitive that way. :)

Good to hear that the ordeal is over for Bunyip. Now she just have to recover again.

Try to look at it this way, she is hurting now, but how would it have been if she had not gotten the surgery?

Keep showing her care and love and she will be almost as good as new again. Cats are fortunately fairly simple creatures in that way.

My best wishes for both you and your loved ones, feline and otherwise.
