Holly got her stitches out today... and got her horrible cone removed!
We originally took her to the spay/neuter clinic- against my better judgement but hubby insisted because it was 1/3 the cost- to have it done. A week later I'm hearing all kinds of HORROR stories about them cutting up their babies!!! ACCKKK!
So, I took her to Mika's vet to have the stitches removed & make sure it looked A-OK. He only charged $20
A worthwhile investment even if the spay/neuter clinic would've done it for free. I wouldn't have cared if he charged 10X that, I wanted someone I trusted to look it over.
Oh, how she squirmed & screamed! His poor assistant got the brunt of her scratches (she's not comfortable with us enough yet to let me clip her nails). When we went to pay I was shaking I was so upset... and for a few seconds I saw stars like I was about to pass out!
But, I thought ya'll would like to know he said her incision looked fine, she's gained weight since her surgery, and she's already back to fighting Mika for the top perch of the cat tree
They did notice what I thought, that Holly is particularly "petite"... her paws are soooooooo small. Mika looks like a lion in comparison!
So yay! It's ALL OVER... THANK GOD!!!
