Rexton Is Spayed

Oh what a whirl wind I've been on in the past few weeks & now past the middle of January already!
Bill & I had a fun week in Clearwater Florida where the elevator code meets were held, I slipped on as 'added luggage' & was so glad I took the time to be with him. I forgot my camera bag at his apartment & so there's just one of me & my new Romanian girlfriend Gratziana. With our guys in elevator code meetings, she & I sunned by the pool & shopped together.
She's going to the code meetings the fall in Hawaii...not me because I'll be right where I want to be on the east coast. I was nice to be in The Sunshine State for a week though!

I called the vet yesterday at 9:30am,  to make rexton an appointment to have her spayed and was asked if I could bring her in at 10am!
As Bill stated to me, ( he was in the middle of putting the first coat of paint on the laundry room walls) it would be best sooner than later because I worry so much about having pets operated on. Back in the early 80's my Sparky the Dalmatian had kidney stones & was operated on,  there were complications & I lost him. :(
So with crate in hand I took her in for the procedure. The office called at 3pm to say all is well & to pick her up at 5:30pm.

 At 5:30 last night I picked her up & a hefty vet bill too...turns out she was still in heat!! That will cost another $42.00 on top of the total! It's all done now & she's going to be an inside cat so I'm hoping that was her last vet bill.
I was also told that she is to wear her head cone for 2 weeks! AND she's not to jump!!
Well this cat lives to jump, she loves heights & can get there with ease.
I put her cat tower sideways for the two weeks, it now takes up 1/2 the lounge floor. lol
Oh the concessions we make for our beloved pets!

                                         Here is Rexton wearing her fashionable head cone! lol

                          I kept her in the crate till the drugs wore of, she was so wobbly.

 Then Boris went crazy to go outside, he saw a bunny rabbit that he wanted! I enlarged the picture...see it in the next yard by the black urn? Nothing wrong with his eyes!

 I gasped when I saw this colour all over her & they reassured me it's just iodine from the surgery.

 Such a small incision for such a large bill, I wish we had a vet in the family!

                                                        Boris is real careful around her.
She feels better having him around too. Last night I slept with Rexton in the crate, on the bed & Boris slept next to the crate. Rexton & Boris both slept through the night, I was thankful as I had my worries of an interrupted sleep. All is well. Now to get through the next 2 weeks!

I want to go into my KYROTIME...
Playing with blocks! These blocks have fallen so many times that I was going to fix this with wood glue!
                                                            This looked too twisty...

                                                         This looked too leaning towerish...

This look was 'just right'. So all these blocks are now one & I'm going to place them over my studio bookcase out east. Everything these days is about 'out east', I think I'm homesick but the weather there would be nasty. I watch the weather & the temp there is 7C, the temp here is -4C, who has the good weather now?

This week will be a busy one making drapes for Mitch's livingroom & bedroom. I also want to do a John Deere baby quilt for baby Konred, to keep him warm,  he's due to arrive next month. Congratulations to Jess & Kelsey on their first born!

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you too have a great productive week.
Let us sew, let us sew, let us sew! LOL

As Winston Churchill once said "Failing to plan is planning to fail."


  1. I'm glad that Rexton is finally fixed but I wonder the same thing about the pricy vet bills.

    I had all my cats neutered and it was expensive then but now it's outrageous. Eye doctors and dentist too. I have an eye appointment tomorrow. $$$

    We're having a yoyo kind of weather with up and down temperatures here. I find myself longing for Spring with longer daylight but it won't be long now.

    On February 7, I'm flying to Ottawa for a 10 day vacation at my daughter. She bought my two ways plane ticket.

    Happy sewing.

  2. Ah a fellow quilter I love quilting and I can only imagine how excited they'll be to receive such a wonderful gift. I took my Miniature Schnauzer to the vet to have his teeth cleaned and the form I had to fill out made me so nervous, I felt I was signing his life away. I almost decided against it. Luckily all went well and he came out with clean teeth and sweet breath.

    I'm a follower of Julia's blog and thought I'd stop in and say Hi

  3. Hello my friend,
    I hope to be back to my self when you get back down east... I can't seem to get back into quilting or hooking, just knitting socks, got home yesterday after another operation, so curled up on the couch behaving myself... Nurses are coming ever other day to do dressings..
    Alphonese is going down hill , she may not be here when you come home,
    A blizzard today, stay safe & warm

  4. I agree; it’s never easy to see our pets being operated upon, even if it's for their own good. You must’ve been very nervous while Kyrotime was under operation. Thankfully, your vet did great, and she’s now on her way to recovery. I hope it will continue to be that way. How is she now, btw?
