Cut Me Mick

Well, I haven't gotten much knitting or crocheting done this weekend. Our little kitten Darby (3 months old) somehow knocked herself in the eye with something Thursday afternoon. Her eye was swollen shut and huge. After an emergency run to the vet and a sigh of relief that there was nothing too major, then it came down to just caring for her. She was in one of those cone collars. Which are funny on a nice big dog, but just sad on a little tiny kitten, who is underweight to begin with. She could not walk, eat or drink with the thing on, because she could not hold her head up, she just dragged it around. So there was mama, staying up with her all night Thursday and Friday taking off her collar everytime she moved so that she could get something to eat, or drink or go potty. It was worse than having a newborn. I slept a lot on Saturday. She's getting around a lot better now, able to take care of her own needs. She goes back to the vet on Tursday for both her well check (that was supposed to occur on Friday) and a check on her eye. Here's hoping I get back to my 2 blankets I'm working on...

What a cute kitten! A hope your other cat doesn't get jealous that Darby's the only one whose picture is on the web! B
