back home! mew!

Sprocket-Sheng is back home, minus one leg. The surgery went great. Everyone at the clinic loves him because he is such a purry sweetheart. He is active and bouncy despite the major surgery he just had. The pain meds have given his eyes a sleepy look, but he hasn’t taken a nap yet even though we’ve been home for a while. He has a huge appetite but I’m not supposed to give him too much food today. He is wearing the obligatory Elizabethan collar because he was already starting to lick his sutures. They should come out in 10-14 days.

The doctor says that the injury to his leg must have taken place weeks ago. At least two weeks, probably more. There was some bruising in the muscle but no external bruising and his tail tip was already healing. Also, based on how well he moves around with three legs, the doctor thinks he has already had some time to adjust.

Mew! Thank you for all your good wishes!

    Aw, I’m glad to hear the little guy is doing well.

  3. Oh good! I bet he’s going to be a little mischief-maker before too long πŸ˜‰

  4. Yay! Before you know it, you’ll be complaining about having to kitten-proof the house. He sounds like an adorable little sprite!

    He definitely has the Mischievious Gene! He’ll give Chun a run for his money!

      oh yes, it will be really fun to watch them! i know lotus already can’t wait to play with sheng, but chun needs to get over his initial shyness and confusion.

      i want to spend the entire night with sheng, but i think i’ll have to split it between chun and sheng because chun is so insecure, poor thing. i think it has to do with the fact that his first family couldn’t care for him after their baby came and he’s afraid it will happen again.

    The boys want their apprentice to get started, they have lots of good stuff to teach him.
    (And give Chun an extra snuggle from me – what is it with these pretty boys who are so shy?)
