Ok, we have a cone situation on our hands again. Or rather on Mini’s cute little head.
Where Bonus is our scaredy cat, Mini is our feisty one. Mini doesn’t shy away from potential danger but faces it head on. Pun not intended. This little tiny kitty takes on our neighborhood’s big cats and chases them off our property. If needed she’ll fight. Hard.
Last week she came home with a bite mark on her head which turned into a boil and on Wednesday we took her to the vet and it turned out that the wound was so deep that she had to have a drainage tube put in so it would heal properly. We took her back to the vet’s on Friday morning for the procedure. They sedated her and when we picked her up later in the afternoon she had a cute little bow on her head. Mini was NOT happy about her new look.
Luckily the tube and the stitches will come out later today (Wille's taking her) and until now we've been giving her meds and flushing the tube out twice a day. She’s totally ok with all the fussing but she’s so not happy about not being able to go outside. The first day was miserable as she sat by the cat flap meowing and not understanding why it didn’t open like normal. By now she’s settled down more but I can’t wait to let her out again. And us humans out again too. In this heat we’ve had to keep the doors closed so she can’t escape. Much like four years ago when Mini was hit by a car and broke her jaw. That time she wore a cone for months, now luckily it’s just been for a few days. Mischievous Miss Mini.
