Here is Aila-sisko when she came home yesterday. Before she even got out of the Box of Doom she had pulled her bandage down, and then Äiti held her for a very long time as she was crying away. It sounded awful and Äiti tried to keep her leg comfortable. We were locked out of the bedroom (not funny but I tried to be patient because it was for a good reason), and Aila slept right by Äiti and did stop crying at about 3am. She has been licking the wound but not pulling stitches so hopefully she will not need a horrible cone over her head. Everything will be inspected by ystävämme eläinlääkäri later today. Aila is staying in the big bedroom and has been eating and using the litter tray. She is already walking much better because her naughty kneecap is in the correct place, but she should rest to give it all a chance to heal up. This is not easy and I remember I was wanting to race around as soon as I could (only my bndage stayed on!).
In the meantime, our visitor has gone and we are busy making sure we reclaim everything in the house. I was given a lovely orange woollen mouse to play with, so have been quite satisfied with things. And of course Äiti is letting me blog on the computer - in between naps.

Bless sweet Aila's heart! Maggie May feels her pain. She did a lot of crying too. Glad to hear she is already walking much better. Hope she gets a great report from the vet today and heals up very quickly. Sending her lots and lots of healing vibes.

Poor Aila :( We hope she will feel soon better and the leg doesn't ache so much!

I of course did not cry when I had my naughty patella fixed! Maybe it is a girl cat thing. But seriously, she was in a very sorry way and it is good that today she is resting. She has the whole bed to herself!
