...is recovering. She was staaaarving last night then thundered around the house until 2am with Tijg until I shut Tijg out and her into my room. Then she tromped around on the bed. Cute but annoying.
This morning we went for a long drive. I adopted her from a shelter about 50km away and they have an arrangement with a local vet that the desex surgery is included in the adoption fee, so I had to take her all the way there. Despite freezing fog the drive wasn't too bad. They'd told me it could be until 2pm until I could get her back, and I sat around reading for a bit and then went to the shelter to return the big cage. Spent some time petting shelter kitties when the vet practice they called that Spook was done and I could come get her - barely 90 mins after I'd handed her over. Nice! They started on her because I was waiting and the other animals would be collected after owner's work.
She was very very woozy, which I always find a heartbreaking sight. I dropped by a shop to buy a smaller wire cage for her, since the letting her loose at night thing isn't something I intend to repeat. She was in there for a while, seemed to be less desoriented and got to walk around for a bit, snoozed on the bed for a while.. Tijg wanted to wash her but she told him to bog off. Then she started looking for places to hide and I put her back into the cage, which has a nest of towels and I've built a cover around one side to make it feel less open. She says her tongue feels weird (I think they put a clamp on it to keep her from swallowing it) and she looks all scruffy and sad, but I think she'll be okay soon enough.
