WAFFLES: I'm sleeping, Ellie. That's my story.
ELLIE: But Mr. Waffles, don't you want to make a FUN story?
WAFFLES: Sleeping IS fun, Ellie. Yawning, sleeping. Sleeping, yawning. You should try it sometime.
ELLIE: But don't you ever get tired of sleeping, Mr. Waffles?
WAFFLES: Tired of sleeping? Seriously? That doesn't make any sense, Ellie. Katie would have called me an oxymoron for saying that.
ELLIE: Don't worry, Mr. Waffles. You're not a moron. Not even an oxy one.
Dental Surgery Update
Things are finally getting back to normal between Ellie and Waffles after their dental surgery saga. Both are eating like champs, enjoying treats, seeking out affection, and even playing. It took awhile for them to start napping and sleeping together, but all is well even on that front.
Sweet Ellie has had a mystery reaction to one of the drugs used during her oral surgery. That's what was making her feel icky last week. The reaction has presented itself dermatologically and she's got two fairly large rashes/wounds on each of her sides. She's under our very close watch, as well as our vets, and is doing super well as they begin to heal. The hardest part is putting salve on her patches three times a day. (we call her rashes patches.) She's been such a trooper and always seems to forgive us, even though it's not fun for her.
We'll keep you posted, as her patches will take few months to heal. But please know she is doing wonderfully and has returned to her sweet, energetic, and affectionate little self. We're checking in regularly with our vet as well. It's quite possible Ellie is their new favorite kitty patient. ...but don't tell Waffles!
