WAFFLES: Looks like you're feeling better, Boss. You sure do smell better. For a while, I wasn't even sure it was you.
KATIE: No kidding, Waffles. It's about time you stop hissing at me. Sheesh, I spend one day at the vet and it takes you almost a week to get over yourself. You and your non-recognition aggression.
WAFFLES: My non-recog-what???
KATIE: Every time either of us go to the vet, you'll hiss and moan at me for a day or two. And this last time, you were hissing and moaning for a WEEK.
WAFFLES: Well maybe we shouldn't go to the vet so much.
KATIE: Waffles, that might just be the smartest thing you've said all year.
WAFFLES: But it's still January, Boss. That's not much of a year. Does that mean I'm only one month worth of smart?
KATIE: One month is one month, Waffles. If I were you I'd take it.
Now pardon me, but I've got some pole dancing to catch up on.

Katie's Dental Surgery Update
Katie is feeling much more like her frisky self. She's even been spending some time at her favorite scratching pole. Katie went in for her 10-day post surgery check up today. She's got just a teensy little infection just inside her lower lip. Nothing to be overly concerned about, but she's on antibiotics now for about 5 days and will go in for one last check up next week.
It will take her awhile to get used to her new normal. Losing 4 teeth, especially so many of her fangs, means she's getting used to a whole new mouth. But she's eating her food like a champ, drinking from our fountain and is kicking it high in the litter box with the same fervor she's always had.
Waffles is finally back to normal. As normal as Waffles can be! It took him about a week to get over his non-recognition aggression towards Katie. There was never any danger of anyone getting hurt, just a lot of hissing and growling. It's all about smell and with Katie unable to groom while her mouth was healing, she continued to smell like 'vet.' That's why it took so long for Waffles to get over it this time.
So it's back to peace and harmony here in the mountains. And spirited Patty Cake matches at mealtime.
