Why it seems like only last week that Emily was in heat.
Well, I guess it WAS only last week!
Julius rises above it all, and no, he's not supposed to be on the table. But then, the bee-jacket isn't supposed to be hanging over the back of the chair, either.
Even Sophie the dog took an interest in Emily's "come-hither" rump display.
Alas, no more "cat in heat" shenanigans. Today Emily got spayed...
...and being Emily, they had to put a Buster collar on her because she immediately had a go at her incision. I am going to try to get her one of those soft fabric collars as an alternative.
Baby had a hard day. She was shaking so I covered her up with a towel and my bathrobe, and she fell asleep. Glad that's over!
It was a sad scene when we arrived at the vets' office. There was a car pulled up near the door and one of the vets was treating a dog in the backseat. It looked like some kind of emergency situation. When we came back out, the owner was crying and the vet and vet techs were putting the dog's blanket-wrapped body on a stretcher to take inside. I don't know what happened, but the dog didn't make it. I'm glad all our pets are okay tonight.
I'm sure Emily will be back to normal very soon! The other cats are treating her like she's a space alien.
