The Op

Princess, post-op.

I've had the op.  The one the RSPCA's Operation Wanted calls the "D-53X upgrade".

Mum calls it the "I don't have to find homes for endless litters of kittens" op.

I would tell you about it, but I had a really big sleep and when I woke up it was all over.

I'm a bit sad, though, because the vet said I can't play with my doggy sister until my stitches are better.  So I'm shut in the bathroom away from the other animals.  And I've got this thing on my head, which makes it really hard to do things, and which keeps getting dirty.

I can't groom myself, so Mum keeps giving me powder baths with nice smelly powder and the brush.  It feels nice and makes me purr, but I'd really like to be able to have a good lick.  Mum also has to keep cleaning this thing on my head.

When I want cuddles, I can't just go and find a human. I have to meow.  Fanta hears me and gets a human for me (she's a really good sister, and I want to go and play with her.)

Oh, and I noticed something really strange! Mirror Cat has one of these things on her head too!

No he doesn't. Mirror Cat's still his usual handsome self - Mr Bumpy.

Who's this Mirror Cat? Why don't I know them? - Fanta.

Mirror Cat definitely does have one.  And she's stuck in the bathroom too.

I'm glad my humans keep coming in to visit me, or I would be very lonely in here.

Mum says it's only a few more days and I can have my stitches out and go back to normal. I can't wait!

Princess Purrs.

  1. Poor Princess ! We're sorry you have to wear the Cone of Shame, what an awful crown for a princess ! We wish you a good recovery ! Purrs

  2. You'll be glad you had the operation, Princess.

  3. If you come across knots and mats, try to pick at them gradually with a small comb (with some longhaired breeds it may be necessary to perform this step first).discover here
