Today is a normal post day but we are all recovering. In this house when someone is under the weather, we all are — four legs and two!
Gracie had yet another surgery this week. She had two teeth pulled. The roots were eroded and exposed. Ouch! The vet said they were located where our wisdom teeth would be. She’s very young for teeth issues but it may have been a result of poor nutrition during the stage when her teeth were developing.
I knew something was up. Although she didn’t act like she was in pain, her mouth was overly sensitive. She couldn’t be checked (the vet couldn’t take to look inside) unless she was under anesthesia.
The surgery was at the beginning of the week. She spent some time isolated and because she’s a tough cat (not inclined to listen to good advice) her recovery took a little longer.
Cats get pain meds and I am very grateful. So is Gracie although she doesn’t know it.
Now she is out and about and wondering what the fuss was about. All the rest of us are looking at her as she totally disrupted the week.
Normal programming will resume. Perhaps an extra mocha latte is in order.
