Portia’s surgery went without a problem. She needed only one tooth removed, though she also received a good cleaning.
Since she has come home, she has been somewhat restless, though this has diminished with the evening. She was hungry, so that may have been part of it. I didn’t want to feed her too much, as she might bring it up again; I think that danger is past now, though, and I will give her a bit more to keep her stomach from growling through the night.
Her restiveness may also be due to the high temperatures we are experiencing. The cats are especially lethargic – it’s hard to tell sometimes in comparison with their usual behaviour – and Portia is spending more than a normal amount of time on the cooler linoleum floors of the dining area and kitchen, instead of on the carpets. Even so, a stretch on the library couch undoubtedly feels good.
I hope it also feels good to be rid of a troublesome tooth, and to have her gums and other teeth cleansed. Once she recovers from the direct effects of her surgery, I think Portia will be a happier cat.
Glad that is all done and over with. Hope it cools down a bit to more bearable temps for all of you.ReplyDelete
Sleep well, Portia, soon you'll feel lots better!
Well, she's certainly enjoying thatReplyDelete

I didn't get chance to do much commenting yesterday and have only just read your previous post. I am glad that everything went well for Portia and am sure she will soon be feeling much better.ReplyDelete
Hi John, I was on tiktok and saw a guy whose cat has diabetes and thought of you. Stewiebeefio is his name if you search for it.ReplyDelete
Well that was no fun for Portia but of course totally necessary. Hopefully she will get back to giving you purrs and some pets. Sorry about the Heat I give you some of our cooler air and all the rain that were having if I could.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy to hear that Portia's dental procedure went well. I'm sure she will be back to her "old self" in no time. Way to go, Portia!ReplyDelete
We're glad all went well and that's she recovering nicely. By the looks of things in the photo, she seems just fine, with a comfy chair and plenty of toys to keep her amused. :-)ReplyDelete
Happy to hear all went well!ReplyDelete
Sorry about your high temps out there. We just had two awful weeks of that. Yesterday it finally cooled off so I could open windows but then had to close them an hour later. A chemical plant 30 minutes north of us exploded! The north winds brought the black cloud and fumes directly at us. So, another day of staying indoors.
Glad to hear Portia's dental went well. The heat is here too and when the cats come in on their volition from the sun room I know it's even too warm for them.ReplyDelete
She looks pretty happy in that photo. :)ReplyDelete
It's going to go up to 107 here today, and my cats are already flat on the floor, with their noses up against the screen door.
That's good news, one tooth isn't too bad and we're sure she'll feel lots better.ReplyDelete
