Anesthesia For Hysterical Cat Owners

So we were seeing a vet yesterday. Kajsa and Tessa needed to get their teeth done as both cats had a lot of plaque.

The bandaged paw we showed yesterday was due to anesthesia. I was a bit surprised that only Tessa had bandages, but turned out that Kajsa wasn’t too tired for working hard on our way home – I found her bandages in her carrier, hehe.

Tessa again was very tired. Kajsa ate a lot when we got home, but Tessa didn’t even care about her favorite treats.

I was of course hysterical and wanted to nurse her. She sure was very tired because she let me put a blanket on her!

Unfortunately, I didn’t stop there and made her a hot-water-bag as well. Sigh. Will I ever learn? Of course Tessa didn’t appreciate my efforts and decided that she had enough. So instead of laying in a den, she sat on the cold floor while Kajsa chose a high spot.

The cold floor and height didn’t really calm me down, but I tried very hard to ignore my patients. They obviously didn’t appreciate my non-existing nursing skills. Sigh. And of course everything went fine. Kajsa didn’t fall, and Tessa found a new spot to hang out. Both were behaving normal today and expected that the flow of treats will continue.

I think I’ll ask the vet next time if I can also get a shot to calm down.
