*VERY relaxed and happy!*Feb 11, 2019:
I know she liked this tree. But I don’t think I realized until looking over these photos just how much she enjoyed this tree.

Yeah. That's a big reason why cats abscess so easily. But they need to heal very quickly in the wild.Feb 12, 2019:
She went in to the vet today because her feeding tube was once again coming loose.
The final picture I have of her with the tube.

I get a call from the vet. Apparently, the vet had removed the remaining suture and was ready to re-do the sutures. She had the tube in one hand and her needle in the other. I’m not sure who had a hand on Krista. But she got uppity and yanked herself free, leaving the Dr with the tube liberated from the cat. Since I was only using the tube for meds and insurance (better to leave the tube in too long than to put her through another intubation), we decided, she decided that we were done with the tube.

It is amazing how quickly the hole closes up. She wasn’t even sent home with a bandage.

This was an open wound, held open for a month, that closed before I brought her home and required no home care.Yeah. That's a big reason why cats abscess so easily. But they need to heal very quickly in the wild.
Oh, yeah, right. I understand. But the fact that their outer dermal layers close so quickly makes them very vulnerable to abscess because anything that's underneath can cause infection.This was an open wound, held open for a month, that closed before I brought her home and required no home care.
What an adorable series! Was she talking to you? *Dad! Thanks for not bringing that stupid plastic thing back! Now where's dinner?*Feb 12, 2019:
I have more pictures from that day. I’m guessing she was happy to be free of the tube. This is a belly ride.

I'm sure she was just purring away taking her scritches. I miss those belly rides so much. Such a treasure!What an adorable series! Was she talking to you? *Dad! Thanks for not bringing that stupid plastic thing back! Now where's dinner?*

*Why would I want to leave this comfy, chic tree that accents my coloring so PURRfectly? (Well, making exceptions for counter-cruising, snorking, and th inevitable, uh, outcome of same...*February 14, 2019:
Starting to wonder if she ever left this tree.

You're right, of course. But *OMC*Oh my cat! I am being followed on Instagram by a rescue in SF. I briefly followed back until I saw this beauty up for adoption right now:

Too much temptation. I have to unfollow them for the same reason I haven’t browsed the shelter website yet. I’m still not ready and I don’t want temptation like this.

Besides. I don’t think it would be fair to Krista or Sassy (above) to adopt solely because I still want my Krista back and Sassy looks like her.
