Sophie Is Now All Grown Up


Do you remember this tiny little thing that we brought home at the end of May? My girl, Sophie, has grown up! Yesterday evening we took her to the vet to have her spayed. I can't believe that she is old enough for that already. In fact, she was way past time. I think she probably was a little slow becoming "mature" due to the fact that she was so little when she was born.

Steph and I got her this afternoon and she is doing just fine. About this time every evening Sophie turns into "The Terrorist" - running the house, trying to snatch people's legs as they walk by, and generally getting into everything she's not supposed to. Tonight, however, she is quietly laying on a blanket in the downstairs bathroom. She's still drugged up from the surgery! It's been pleasantly quiet. But we're so glad she's home because we missed her terribly.

The vet said to keep her confined in a small area for 7 to 10 days. Yeah right! That will probably last until tomorrow and then I'm sure she'll be wanting out. I'm just glad that this is over with, there will be no babies at our house, and maybe Sophie will mellow out a bit. Time will tell!

When we had our Sophia neutered there was no holing her up for any length of time! She was her old self soon after picking her up from the vet's. 7-10 days? Yikes! Maybe 7-10 hours. Or, 7-10 minutes!!!

don't you just love to watch them grow? especially when they are growing with your child.

oh, the joy of cats! When we had our "Kitty" she did that running around thing at night too. My daughter called it "Night Crazies"!! Must be a cat thing :)
Enjoy your weekend, Kay!

Hello~I've just strolled in for my first visit. I too am in WA state. by the Colombia River.
I've enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts. You've got so many wonderful treasures. Your blog is so beautifully inviting.
We share similar tastes for so many of the same design elements.

Oh miss Sophie is so beautiful. It doesn't take long for them to spring back into action. My kitty became much more affectionate. Before her surgery we'd make bets on how long shed' let you cuddle her before she'd want to flee. Like a scene from the cartoon Pepe Le Peu, lol.

I look forward to coming by your charming blog again.
Come by for a visit. Your company would be nice.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Such a sweet pic you have of her! Isn't it amazing how attached we get to our pets? I don't know what I'd do without my Sammy cat! Lisa :-)

Yep, keeping ours in for a few days proved tricky! And was the time they found they could literally climb the walls!!
