Sammie’s Tail Part 15
While waiting for the vet’s appointment, we put her in the bathroom. We tried to read up on this stuff and educate ourselves to the best of our ability. To put her in a small room would not overwhelm her.
Well, we put her in there and I opened the window for air.
Well, next thing we know, we had what we call today, “the great escape”. The screen was completely chewed out, a complete circle that would fit Sammie perfectly in her light 6.7 lbs she was.
There in her usual spot where she sat and stared at us when she was outside, looking at us for food in our window. I opened the door and as usual, she came in for the food, and we closed the door.
What was amazing, when we fed Sammie outside at the same time, she would sit in this sheltered spot and stare at us looking back at her and in our window. It was funny and neat to us. We figured she was smart. We continue to learn how smart cats are.
Done and phew!!! She is back home. Wow, Home. We have a responsibility for this life. I felt excited and I took my responsibility very seriously.
She had her teeth cleaned and the bullet removed. It was a pellet gun bullet and not a bb gun. Wow! I felt she had been abused on top of this.
I still have the bullet in a container. Why I kept it, I don’t know. I felt sooo bad.
She had her teeth cleaned and a couple removed. So now I not was only with a new cat, the first one I would ever have, the first pet too. I was now going to give pain relief medicine 2 times a day for her teeth that was pulled. We also gave her baby food as mild enough to eat.
So now this is the first pet I have ever had, responsible for this life, and now I have to be a medicine expert. Gee wiz.
I feel her first days with us were more traumatic and not so great. Also, try catching her to take her to the vet. She eventually hid under a little house we bought behind the couch. So we let her be where she wanted to be comfortable. But she was in pain.
To catch her was traumatic for us and her. I had a vet appointment. Eventually, only one time, the vet techs came to our house and got her for us. The first vet appointments were very stressful for all.
I hate to say this, but I think she chose us. People say that. I feel like she is my relative and some people can say I am crazy, but I really feel that way. She was not going anywhere and we were committed and responsible.
