Singlet for Kenggy

When Kenggy's bleeding lump dried-up, EJ was happy and thought that things would go well. 

Kenggy started bleeding again...from the same lump. This made EJ think hard on what best to do and thought that perhaps pet clothes may help. EJ remembered that 10 years ago, mom sewn two small singlets out of EJ's old cotton T-shirt for the late Tommy.

It kicked off a frenzied search and found it.

Washed and sun-dried, EJ put it on Kenggy who protested a bit.

She looks like a piglet here.

Kenggy giving her unapproving annoyed look.

Noticing that it was a tad tight around Kenggy's fat belly perhaps making her uncomfortable, EJ folded the bottom of the singlet higher up to Kenggy's chest.

It did the trick. Kenggy seemed happier and slept. Can you see the wound fluid stain on the singlet?

EJ will wait a few more days to see whether it is helping. After wearing the singlet, Kenggy joins her roommates during the day and back to her personal suite at night.

Kenggy, I think you look rather stylish in your vest, but I do understand that you may prefer not to wear it. I hope your lump stops bleeding very soon.

Sending you lots of purrs and love little girl

I love these photos, EJ.
Dear Kenggy did seem to accept being clothed after things were rearranged to her satisfaction, and I'm glad she is joining the others during the day.
Much love to all of you,
Kay and Lindy
