A Bad Day...

Dear Readers,

Our dear Little Miss went in for surgery this morning to be spayed.  A few hours later, I got a call from the vet saying that they had accidentally cut into her intestines whilst they were opening her up.  Though they did their best to sew up the hole, there is a possibility of it opening back up again and allowing toxins to seep into her abdomen.  She will be spending the night there so they can monitor her and I'm hoping that all goes well and we can bring her home by the weekend.  My mind has been in a turmoil all afternoon and I just have to pray that she'll have no complications.



The pic above was taken this past weekend.  She loves to climb on our shoulders and is such a snuggle-bum!  Please excuse us, we're still in our PJ's and scruffy beard:)

I did manage to get an order finished today and am hoping to take a break from custom orders for a while.  I'm feeling a bit overdone and really haven't had a day off from sewing for months.


These little pixies and tag-alongs are off to France as a special gift for Christmas.  I love how the bunny turned out in blue!

Anyway, will keep you posted about our kitty,
hugs,
~Shelly

  1. Wow. I'm so shocked that something like that can happen at a Vets office. Both of my guardians are veterinarians and this is the most common procedure they do. They could even do it with their eyes closed...maybe. Reading this story makes me sad. I hope your kitty recovers!

  2. Me too Shayla! I was in shock when he told me, but he was very appologetic and felt terrible about the whole thing. I just have to think positive right now.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear such bad news,how sad and unusual at the same time.I had to take my Misty kitty in to be spayed last Week and I was worried about her being put under,as this is usually the only dangerous part of the surgery,not what your poor kitty went through.I will keep you and little kitty in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery xxxxhugsxxx

  10. My goodness, how awful. I have four cats and never worried when they went for their surgeries. It is such a routine thing. I pray she is okay and back with you soon.

  11. I always read your blog because I just think you're so talented and inspiring... Anyway, just wanted to leave you some positive thoughts for you. Our furry friends are more than just pets, they become cherished family members with their own amazing personalities and quirks. I hope your Miss Kitty pulls through and recovers quickly.

  12. Thank you Annie, Vicky, Mother Goose and Sakaki!

    I've received good news this morning! The vet has just phoned to say that she's purring away and trying to escape her kennel. Her temp is fine and the insicion looks good so far. They've got her on antibiotics and will continue to monitor her throughout the day.

    If all goes well today, we'll be able to pick her up this afternoon. She'll need to be kept very quiet and away from our other kitty for the next week and on wet food for the next few days.

    Thank you all so much for your positive thoughts and prayers!
    hugs,
    ~Shelly

  19. Thank you my dear friends! Missy Moo is home and has been resting and sleeping for most of today. We are keeping a very close eye on her incision and making sure that she's eating and staying comfortable. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated as she's still not out of this tough neck of the woods, got a few more days yet.
    Will keep you posted with her progress.
    hugs to you all!
