Not so sad.

Chloe is recovering well. The incision is healing, so that means it's very itchy.

The vet sent her home with a plastic e-collar and she really didn't like it. She would run into things when wearing it, and I think it scared her. She would just end up standing there, in one place, even when bribed with treats.

So, seeing as I am a working gal, and I can't stay home to keep my eye on her, I needed an anti scratching solution.

a friend suggested an inflatable collar so I ran out to get one. She's still not a fan, but at least she will walk around, drink water, and take a nap.

We've got about a week and a half to go before the stitches come out! Let's hope it goes by quickly.

When my munchkin, Violet, got spayed, she did that same thing when wearing the plastic collar - she stayed in one place and wouldn't move, even when we called her and offered treats. She was very young then, of course, and still stayed in a little playpen when I was working, but the dog walker assured me that when he came to walk her, she wasn't in the same position as before. So I am convinced that some of her not-moving was her being extra dramatic for me, and when I was gone she wasn't thrilled but managed. So, hopefully Chloe will be the same way!! And if/when you have to leave her for little bits, she'll be like, ok what's next now I can do my thing!

thanks for the reassurance Melanie! I worry so much when I'm not here... you're right though, she does realize she can do her thing, and she does.
