I was able to bring Pal home yesterday. She ate out of my hand at the clinic demonstrating her "princess status" for everyone to see. She also exhibited her "drama queen" inclinations by whining, hooting and hollering when she saw me. I am supposed to keep her as quiet as possible since her incision is very long and there is always a risk of her tearing it open should she be too active. I have been successful up until an hour ago of keeping her off the couch and bed - but an hour ago she snuck into the bedroom and I discovered her happily sleeping curled up on the bed. Rather than make her get off, I will simply restrict access to the bedroom once she decides it's time to get up.
I am so happy to have my sweet girl back home.
