Default Miette

My baby girl made a trip to the vet yesterday. It was the final trip for her kitten package. She's had all her shots and got spayed yesterday. I also had her microchipped.

She won over the staff at the vet's office. They all went on about how sweet she is. She would reach out through the bars of her cage trying to snag people as they walked by. She did the same with me on the ride to the office. I had to drive one handed so I could scratch her through the grate of her carrier.

Surgery meant she was supposed to come home and be quiet for a few days. She didn't read that part of the instructions. I had her in a dog crate in the living room so she could be in the middle of things, but not wrestle with the others. She climbed the sides of the crate, hung from the bars on top, reached out and "wrestled" with Ollie through the bars. I finally let her out. I was afraid she'd hurt herself. She calmed down and went to sleep piled up with the others. She is fine tonight.

I love all my fur babies, but some times one comes along that is special. She is one of the special ones. We have a really strong bond.

I've always said I never had kids out of fear I'd give birth to myself. I was not a bad kid, but I was on the go ALL the time. I was curious and got into things. I was a tomboy. A friend recently pointed out she is a feline version of me. She's right. My little girl is me. Guess I didn't have to give birth to have a "child" just like me.

I do love my little girl.

How sweet! Glad she's such a special kitty. Scratch under her chin for me, please.

Unaluna, I'm slow on the uptake tonight. I thought you were referring to the translation of her name (sweet little thing). Then I realized Me-ett would be like a mini-me. Yep, you're right.

As soon as you mentioned the word crate I already pictured her climbing the bars. She did it because she could. Hope Miette is well on the road to recovery.

She's healing nicely. Vet said to keep her quiet for a few days. She was back to wrestling with Ollie and Mikey the next days. They are good big brothers though and let her go if she howls. Keeping her quiet is impossible (just like keeping me still as a kid was impossible.)

Unaluna, I once knew someone who was bilingual who said she would switch between the two languages in her dreams.
