My person went to the doctor yesterday and she doesn’t have to wear the sling in the house anymore. Just when she goes out. She’s really happy about that and so am I because now she can pet me with both hands. I would stand next to her, playing PET ME IF YOU CAN, and she couldn’t reach me with her arm in the sling. It didn’t hurt my feelings or anything. I mean she twisted around so she could try and reach me with her other hand, but now that game is over. She has a lot of exercises to do and she slept in her bed last night. She can’t sleep on her right side, of course, but she finally got a few hours of sleep. The exercises are not fun and they can hurt, so she has to ease into them. It’s nice that her daughter, my sister, is a therapist.
Now that she’s back in bed at night, the couch is empty, so I can’t wake her up or get pets in the middle of the night. I did sleep on the cushion by myself, but it wasn’t the same. Her bed is really high and I don’t want to jump up there, so… She knows I was on the couch because I left some fur for her to find. Just to keep it real, if you now what I mean.
My person is not very bright when it comes to things like this. She thinks she should be back to normal immediately. I mean she’s still healing and has to be careful, but she thinks she should just be the way she was before she fell, and doesn’t understand why having her arm in a sling for over a month, would make any difference. I gave up trying to explain things to her. She just doesn’t listen. She has to go back one more time, in about four weeks, and that should be it.
It’s fifteen below zero outside, with the wind chill so it’s a good day to stay inside. I’m glad I finally decided to move in with her. I mean, someone needs to keep an eye on her. We both hate cold weather and I forgot to tell you that she can drive agin. She’s REALLY happy about that, but needs to get her arm in a little better shape before she hits the road.
So, that’s it, I think and I finished this just in time, because I feel a nap coming on.

I am so happy you are improving! Sending healing hopes your way.
Thank you so much. I’m getting there. Just have to do the exercises and keep at it. 🙂 ❤
She’s so lucky to have you and tell her that I’m happy she’s getting better and hopefully you can make sure she takes it easy
I think she knows how lucky she is. She gives me treats. But it’s nice to hear it from someone else. When I’m awake, I check on her because she’s weird and needs me to look after her. Thank you and please say hi to Olive for me. Meow. ❤
You made it… soon back to normal. Hope you heal quickly. Best wishes for total recovery.
Thank you so very much. Have to do the exercises and should be back to normal soon. 🙂
Yeah, PT really helps alot!! Good luck!
It’s OT and yes it makes a huge difference. 🙂 Thank you
Sounds great, Em! Kiss Gi for me!
Congratulations! Sounds like things are moving in the right direction! I’m glad we have Emily to keep this journal so we know what’s happening with her and her person ❤️
She’s very good at relating my condition to others. I’m buying her special catnip toys as payment. 🙂 I’m doing so much better now that I don’t have to wear the sling in the house. So uncomfortable. Now I can sleep. Lots of exercises. Em is taking notes, so I can’t cheat. 🙂
It’s nice to have some sweet company to get you through this. She decided to come inside just in time.
That’s so true. In time for her surgery and my arm. It was meant to be. She is such a sweet cat. I’m so lucky to have her. ❤ 🙂
Yes, I’m glad you had already moved in when this accident happened! I’m sure that having you around the house was a great comfort!
Thank you. I’m a very nice cat and do whatever I can to make things easier for her, but she’s very stubborn, so I can only do so much. She refuses to nap all day, so I have to do it for her. She thanks me and tells me it helps her a lot. She said I am a great comfort. Thank you for writing to me. Meow.
