Sophie here: Uh-oh, I guess I have been a bad kitty. I can’t be Miss Crankypants with mom anymore. She just told me that in January 2015 she will go in for knee replacement
surgery on her right knee. Yikes. I’m glad it’s her and not me. But that means me and the woofie will be cared for by others for about 3 days while she is in the hospital, and then for WEEKS afterward, there will be helpers coming in to assist with the pet chores. I suppose as long as MY food bowl stays full, everything will be okay.
Mom says she’s known she was headed down this path since about the year 2000. She’s been hobbling around for too long now and it’s time to do something about it. If you ask me, I think the woofie was a big push for her. Taking him out for walks and stuff was hard on her knees, but then after the surgery, the doctor says taking the woofie for a walk will be the best thing for her. Mom told me all about it.
So, I guess my sweet, little feline heart will have to get used to MORE changes around here. Gosh, is there no end to the list of things I have to put up with every day? I guess one thing I can do for mom is not get upset with her when she calls me “sweetie” and “silly cat.” Oh, yeah, and not to jump up on her knees after the surgery. That, too.
Stay tuned. There will be LOTS more said about this development…
