    All of my cats over the years have been excellent nurses after my various surgeries, although that sometimes requires covering the affected body area with a pillow!

    Sendingvpurrs and prayers that Smudge will return home soon. Maybe he is nearby, nursing some hurt feelings.

    I thought about asking for a shot of local anesthetic, but with the attitude I was halfway afraid he’d kick me out without removing the stitches. He’s lucky I skipped breakfast that morning or things could have been much worse.

    I had no problem having the bandage removed after my ganglion cyst removal. The problem was that the surgeon apparently underestimated my healing power. The flesh had started to grow over the stitches (what I got for obeying orders to keep the bandage on until the appointed removal time). I turned green (I could see my reflection in a paper towel dispenser on the wall) and sweaty and almost fainted when they started picking at the stitches and trying to pull them up so they could get the little scissors under them, which was very painful and made a disgusting sound. They ended up having to use a scalpel to cut the stitches. And the Dr had the nerve to call me a baby for turning green! The scar is hidden. In the bend of the wrist, but is visible when extended—both the incision, and the Frankenstein-like stitches.

    Their needle-like claws can climb stucco and brick. Many years ago I lived in the upstairs apartment of an old two-story brick house, and it was quite common for the neighborhood squirrels to climb up and perch outside my windows to observe my day-to-day activities. They especially liked to watch me put makeup on in the a.m.

    My boys weren’t interested in people food when they were younger. Now, as senior old men, they pester me to death for anything—cheese, crackers, chips, any kind of meat.

    I’ve 14 cats over the years and not one of them would touch that stuff. Most of them havent cared much for milk, period. But lucky for those that do, I have a bit of a lactose problem myself and tend to buy lactose-free milk. The exception was Shadow, who was 18-1/2 years old when I adopted her. I gave her small treats of whole milk because her first mama had done so all her life, and it caused her no problems whatsoever. In face, Shadow would stand before the fridge and very loudly demand her milk. She also recognized the red and white container if I had it out while cooking and sang the song of her people until I served up her snack.
