The weekend was full of not-as-much-work as it should have been but yet way-more-errands-than-imagined. Blick.

The Professor is now free of her post-op stitches, has a new manicure, and got her first full bath yesterday. Amazinly, she liked the warm water being poured over her, but shrieked with pain at the in-between times and the soaping-down when she shivered miserably. It was almost too much for my little heart to take. I certainly couldn't let her dry her little shaking body without some intervention, so I gave the hair dryer on a low setting a go. Although, she was quite obviously afraid at first, she gave it a chance since it was, at least, better than the cruel 70 degree room temperature, and it was only a matter of time before she was rotating so I could get her other side and ultimately, holding up her back leg for me to expose her wet underside.

What a cutie!

I can't believe there are no pictures to accompany this post. HONESTLY, WOMAN.

Bailey let us give her a bath too...until month seven, at which point she howled as though I was plucking her whiskers out one by one. Enjoy it while it lasts!

As much as I wanted to take her picture during all this, I was afraid to leave because she might not let me start again. So there is no photographic evidence. Just a memory, locked in my mind.

I can totally relate. If you move, the moment is broken and they won't let you start up again.
