Mistys House

This is Mistys house for the next 3 weeks. She has a cat box, litter tray, food and water. When we first put her in, she went straight into the cat box and slept. I was able to hold food and water for her, and she didn't come out for over 24 hours.Its a different story this morning though. She has been climbing over her cat box as you can see in the picture. Although she has had a sleep on the bed this morning, what she really wants is to walk around and play! We have taken the cat box out as she is not supposed to be walking and climbing. She has her bed on the floor of the cage now. We have carried her around the house so she can she what s going on, but she wants to walk.

We have just put her back in her house and she is yelling to come out. She doesn't seem to be in pain anymore, but she is very unsteady on her legs - not surprising as she has a broken hip. We can't let her out on her own as she could damage the healing bones.

This is going to be a long 3 weeks.

It will be an interminable three weeks if she keeps miawing! Bless her, a bit of tough love that she doesn't understand. Chin up!

We took her out of her cage and I sat with her on our bed. She had a wash and then went to sleep. I sat next to her and knitted. I guess she just wants company. We are going out later today to a friends for a meal, so she will have to get used to being on her own for a while.

So good to see Misty on the mend... At least she came home to you, and was able to be treated - She is bound to go from strength to strength now, non?! What a sweetie she is x

Oh I hate this kind of thing. You feel you have to be cruel to be kind. Just have to *stick it out* Probably worse for you than for Misty, if you think about it.

You feel so cruel when you hear their pitiful miasma but it a case of cruel to be kind.

I'm so glad that she is so much better than before, it will be a long 3 weeks but keeping her restricted should mean better healing and less problems for her in the future. It's just a pity we can't tell them that.
