Her unilateral mastectomy to remove the lump, her left first and second mammary glands was on Tuesday.
She had to stay that night at the clinic so that her vet could check and monitor her on a regular basis. She was on drips and her abdomen was tightly bound.
When EJ came to collect Kenggy the next day, Wednesday, her blood results arrived. The results were good. Her lungs in the x-ray were clear.
At home, in order for Kenggy to recuperate, she was placed in a large cage. Kenggy hated it and constantly hollered. EJ decided to dig out the old pet pen stashed hidden and carefully away. It was night by the time it was set up and things cleared from the lowest shelf of the 'all things for kitty' rack beside the MeowRoom door.
Kenggy's mini unit is complete with bed and toilet as well as enable the cats to see, smell, touch each other but at the same time Kenggy is protected. Their food bowls are purposedly placed on either side of their room door to enable them to eat side by side but separated.
Winnie came to visit and dined.
Later both Tanya and Pebble visited. Captain Jack visited too but a photo was not taken. EJ was too busy chasing after Tanya to pill antibiotics for her sore gums.
Soon Kenggy settled in and rested.
It was tough trying to snap a photo of the incision. It was very well done considering the length of the incision and less than 24 hours after the operation.
The stitches held when Kenggy stood up. It did not budge even when scrunched.
Look at her round belly! A double! Doesn't she look like a cute mini monster with fangs, furless limbs, belly and glowing eyes?
She even sharpened her invisible claws conveniently here.
We are still waiting for the results of the biopsy.
