|Oh, if only I had thought of this myself!|
Thursday night was horrendous. Pandora accepted her Cone of Shame with resignation but Willow went into Resistance Fighter mode. She hid under the bed, pulled her Cone off, and gnawed at her stitches; I shooed her out and re-Coned her. She ran and hid under the other side of the bed, pulled her Cone off, and gnawed at her stitches; I shooed her out and re-Coned her. And repeat. Ad infinitum. By 2am, I was ready to join her under the bed if it meant that I could get some sleep. One last try at Grab the Cat, which has left me with arms that look like a piranha has had a go, and some enforced snuggling on my lap, and we all drifted off to sleep. We were woken by a hungry Maia scratching and whining piteously at the door at 6am. I'm not sure how Bassman slept through it all, but he did.
I was SO TIRED but I did manage to get myself to the gym later that day for an uneventful upper body workout and the usual cardio things. I can't actually remember the rest of the day, aside from having a couple of glasses of red wine while watching telly...nope, it's a complete blank, and that is NOT due to the wine.
Friday night in the Kittenry was a lot better. The girls had more or less adjusted to their helmets and happily snuggled in with me at bedtime. We all fell asleep at a reasonable hour. I was awakened by Pandora using the litter tray at 6.30am and took the opportunity to see what Willow was up to. Quelle surprise, the Kitty Escape Artist quietly had gotten out of her helmet sometime during the night and was having a thorough wash. Her spay wound looked to be okay, so she must have left the stitches alone. I de-helmeted Pandora and spent the next hour watching them wash themselves and each other, until Maia's demands for breakfast became too noisy to ignore.
|Pandora, Maia, & Willow: not to scale|
So, for Day 19 of Janathon, I went for a 1.6 mile walk with my husband. But even though I may not be logging the wrangling of kittens as official Janathon activity, believe me, it counts.
