The Rissa Report:: Post-Surgery Update

First off, I'm doing quite well, thankyoufurrymuch! The v-e-t removed the cyst on my side on Friday. I ended up staying the night at the v-e-t's office since I was so groggy from the anesthesia. I did get to come home early Caturday morning. The first thing I did when I was home was drink a lot of water! I was so thirsty!

I spent most of the weekend resting up. I was very tired on Saturday and I slept most of the day and night. I was a little more active on Sunday, but I still couldn't jump up and down from the bed or the cat tree because my side was sore. I napped in sun puddles on the floor and I did get up in mom's lap for a bit. I just had a hard time getting comfortable.

Yesterday I slept in the little cat bed that is beneath mom's desk. It's small and cozy and I was able to hide from my siblings. I just don't want to be bothered. Mom was afraid I might be getting a cold because I was sneezing. However, I was out and about this morning and I ate breakfast with mom.

I have a large bare patch on my side where the v-e-t shaved off my furs! And I have an incision with stitches that is about as long as mom's pinky finger. The stitches are starting to itch, but I'm trying to ignore them. I don't want to wear the "cone of shame". I'll go back to the v-e-t early next week to have my stitches removed. I'll sure be glad when that is done.

Mom is still waiting on the lab report to find out just what that cyst is. We're all hoping it's just a lump of fat!

Purrs and Headbonks,


Serendipity's eye is looking much better too. The eye oinkment is doing the trick!


  1. We're glad you're home and recovering well, Clarissa. Continued purrs for you and crossed paws that it WAS just a fatty lump.

    It's also great that Serendipity's eye is better. Yay!

  2. Glad to hear that all went well with the surgery Clarissa, fingers crossed for a good lab report!!!

  3. Paws crossed that all is well...and leave those stitches alone!

  4. I am sure glad you are doing good and we are all purring for fat too!

  5. Paws crossed that the lump they took out was nothing - keep us posted!

  6. Paws crossed and purrs for you !
