Can't wait until Monday

Maddy cat had a lump removed last Thursday and she has been stitched up ever since. We had to put an Elizabethan collar on her the day after her surgery to stop her pulling her stitches out so we have a whiny cat locked in the study who is desperate to get out and be free but can't be until she gets the stitches out on this coming Monday. Until then either she is locked in the study or we are locked in the house. Personally I hate being locked in the house so I don't blame her, but with three small boys in and out of the back door constantly she can't be out of the study or she'd be off like a rocket! We let her free in the evenings after the boys are in bed so she gets a chance to stretch but she is soooooo hanging out to get outside. The other side of this is of course that our other cat Sammy knows she is unwell and hisses apallingly at her whenever she sees her, and is herself either allowed free access to the house or is locked outside! It's a fine balance and thankfully the stitches are removed on Monday because today is the last day of term so the school kid and the kinder kid will be home non-stop for the next two weeks and having a housebound cat on top of that was not going to be a good thing at all.

Poor Maddy! Poor Leonie!

Hope everything goes well on Monday. You're probably the only ones in the country who are hoping for a quick weekend!! LOL

Maddy, those collars require a lot of patience on everyone's part!!
