Dorothy had her stitches removed on Tuesday, and her energy level has since reached an all-time high. I think the stitches sort of pulled at her skin a bit, and kept her from being too much of a daredevil.
Despite our constant vigilance in applying the bad-tasting cream to her wound, Dorothy still managed to pull at her stitches. She gave herself a small sore, but it seems to be healing nicely, so nothing to be too concerned about. The kitten is definitely happy to be able to wash herself properly again, and her coat has regained its phenomenal softness.
So, the kitten’s all recovered, and the spaying is behind us. What’s next? Well, some of our houseplants have managed to survive Dorothy so far, and she is having none of that!
