Well, touch wood Smartie does seem to be on the mend - i know he has also forgiven me for taking him to that terrible place -as this morning he jumped on me and sat on my neck and cuddled into it - he usually does this every morning and this is the first time since he came back from the vets he has done this !!
He also has not touched his stitches since i put the coat on him and he took it off ! He obviously has realised if he touches them , he will have to have the "strait jacket " on again !!
He didn''t have it on last night and i got up loads of times throughout the night to check his stitches were still ok and it doesn''t look like he has bothered with them.
Where they clipped him , one bit looked red and thats where he was washing - i guess they had the clippers on the wrong setting at first and it was a bit sore -it certainly looked it
poor boy .
So , fingers and paws crossed he keeps progressing now.
Anyway -the bill was £268 in the end - op, dental, blood test, x-ray, fortekor and last weeks consultation and pack of advantage .which i think was pretty good -although as i hadn''t expected the x-ray had only got £200 - so put a few things on ebay (including a lovely cat hammock ! -i have 3 left i bought last year to sell and kept one for my own cats -can use it outside with canopy or inside for bed settee) to get the extra £68 .
