fat pony like thunder

(no subject)

Thank you all so much for your kind words about the ailing Ju Ju, who was left at the vet this morning (with many tears from me and lots of purring from her). I just talked to the vet and - thank God - the operation went well. They had to remove both her ears so she will be a strange little mutant, but hopefully she will soon be her usual bold and rumbustious self. She will have to wear a collar for ten days but after that she should be fine. I can't wait to see her and I do hope she won't be too distressed by the loss of her ears. As Patsington pointed out, she will look more like Bucky than ever...

Ju Ju is currently snuggled in Patsington's lap, having spent the last hour and a half on my lap. She is purring so loudly I can hear her from the kitchen. She is still a bit woozy after her operation, but seems generally fine, if a little cranky. She does NOT like her plastic ruff, and keeps trying to shake it off; she also keeps trying to scratch her ears. Speaking of which, they don't look as bad as I thought they would; I think she will look very cute and bear-like when the stitches come out. The worst thing is that she finds it hard to eat and drink while wearing the ruff, although that could be exacerbated by her doziness. Poor Ju Ju. But they removed the cancerous bit, and I pray that she'll be okay. Her admirers will perhaps be relieved to hear that her mixture of snuggliness and cross surliness is intact, even if her ears aren't...
