Gimp and Lovin' It

Every time we go out of town for any substantial length of time, Mona has this self-depricating behavior of compulsive cleaning. Sounds fake and insignificant, but last year, most of our Christmas money went to vet bills for Mona. This year, we came home to little bloody footprints all over our white bedspread and white desk. She has licked off part of her paw pad, poor little dear. A few days later, we took her to the vet where she got cast #1.

With the cast on, she is milking the attention and acts like her foot is broken and can't hold her weight. The cast / wrapping was switched a couple days later, but she had that one off in less than 24 hours. She works at "cleaning" it with such ferocity - if only she could put that OCD to good use and get the floors mopped!!

Cast #4 and dreading her next dose of antibiotic:

Here she is ashamed of the vet bills. Actually the vet has been really great this time and only charged us the once. Kudos to Rosewood Animal Clinic.

Aw! Poor kitty! Even if she's milking it, I say, "More power to her!" I'd do the same thing if I were a sweet itty bitty kitty. :)

But yeah.. the bloody paw prints. Not good. We have had lots of experience with that when Zeke was going crazy because of his allergies!

Poor kitty! Perhaps she needs to speak to a kitty psychiatrist about her separation anxiety....Laura
