Conehead

In case you've been losing sleep over the cat, let me assure you she came through her spay operation just fine. But she had to wear a cone for a week to keep her from messing with the surgical site, and you can imagine how much she liked that.

The cone made her walk like a cow, with her head down and swinging slightly from side to side. She also bumped into things a lot, so she had to put a lot of time and effort into pretending she bumped into them on purpose. It was all pretty tiring for her. Fortunately she could still do fun things like hide around corners and launch sneak attacks on us, knock the sofa cushions over, and chase flies.

We took the cone off Sunday night and I don't think she slept for about 36 hours; she was biting everything in sight to make up for lost time. We've had to triple our arsenal of squirt bottles just to keep some semblance of order in the house.

Ha! No, but it could be a long-lost cousin. I'd like to think Susu is too smart to spend that long trying to dig through a plastic container, but given how often she bangs her head into the glass surface of the coffee table, I can't make any assumptions.
