cat care

thanks for all the well wishes in my last post for poor little Stevie. We picked her up from the vet yesterday afternoon looking very sorry for herself and a bit drugged up. She usually cries in the car but we didn't hear a peep from her all the way home.
We're trying to give her lots of love and TLC without really moving her around too much. Here she is in her cage - her home for the next 4-6 weeks Most important job for us right now is making sure she eats and goes to the toilet. We have to give her water and drugs via a syringe straight into her mouth until she can manage to feed herself. She managed to drag herself into the cat litter, but it was such an effort for her she just slumped into it. It's heartbreaking to see her like this but she's really being quite a brave little thing. Fortunately Mr Monda is working at home so he has been on hand to care for her.

Cat care has meant my crafting excel spreadsheet has gone straight out of the window - I'm very behind now and have to try and play catch up for the rest of this week. Eek. Still I'm happy that Stevie is still with us, and she is well worth a few lost crafting days.

I'm still working on the wedding card commission I have. This is one of the feathers I have used in one of the mock designs - it's really lovely isn't it. The fabric wrapped around the end is the silk from the brides dress - a lovely blue/green petrol colour.

Glad to see she's home with you again, albeit sadly not herself. She will be though, soon enough. Hang in there.
