Wet, but happy to be home

Zoe's home now! =)

I haven't read any of her discharge papers yet, as Chris picked her up, but she has several liquid medications to take. And for the next couple of days, she's going to get a gourmet cooked diet of boiled chicken and white rice, administered by the tablespoon.

As to the post title, she apparently had an accident while in the car, due to having been hooked up to an IV for the last two days, and came home smelling of cat pee. We whisked her up to the shower, Chris bathed her, and now she is happily grooming herself while looking like a wet rat.

Albeit a wet rat with certain patches of fur missing, due to the IV and having her tummy shaved for an ultrasound.

I'm very happy that she's home. =)

you must be REALLY talented if you can get your cat into the shower.

Glad the kitty's home. Have fun administering the medications.

It's actually how we always bathe her. She would climb out of the bathtub, and ours didn't hold water for a long time, so we just got her used to taking showers when she was a baby kitten. =)

I'm impressed with the shower thing! I give the cats a bath once a year. Boy, is it an ordeal! The wet rat look just cracks me up.

I'm so glad she's home! Our guy came home with two shaved "elbows" on his front legs. Looked a bit like a poodle, LOL ...

I hope we get a picture soon? What was wrong with her?

glad that the sweetie's home - just be sure to keep her warm and medicated!

fwiw, there are waterless shampoos - not the greatest, but in a pinch it'll do the job if you don't have access to water or your fuzzaloid doesn't like that.

now love her to death!!!

I'm so glad she's home!!! Did they ever figure out what's wrong? Poor little thing. And poor you and Chris. I know how worrying it can be.
