Our little Mousey has had an operation. The catbeast managed to rip a big hole at her waist (or whatever that general area is called in mice) while trying to get at the catnip inside. I discovered the patient after finding said catbeast attempting to lick a clump of stuffing. Which was quite a sight in and of itself. She desperately wanted to taste it but the stuffing evidently was very unpleasant on her tongue. Which did seem to confuse her and left her tongue hanging in limbo while she tried to figure out her next move. Sorry I didn’t manage to grab a photo of that.
The operation went well, although the stitches were not sewn with beauty in mind. And our catnippy little household rodent will carry a scar.
Catbeast was quite anxious throughout the surgery, sitting facing me and not taking her eyes off of Mousey for even one second. She was quite happy to immediately take over supervising Mousey’s post-op recovery.
Let us hope that Mousey will not suffer any further injuries.
