    She is such a good girl. She let us take care of her foot, without any fuss at all. Now she is sleeping in a cat carrier. Going to keep her separate for a few days.

    Such a sweetie!
    I love it when they get comfy like that.
    I know they tend to just pass out when you flip them over, my rooster purposely puts himself that way in my lap and he just stares at me calmly while enjoying a belly scratch.
    What was wrong with her foot?

    She got a string twisted around it, and it was swelling and had a cut. So, we put some neosporin and a bandaid on it.

    [​IMG] She acts like it doesn't bother her. I just didn't want it to get infected or anything.

    How is your sweet girl doing? She seemed to enjoy her "treatment". Nice photos.

    She is doing great! The swelling went down, and it looks to be healing. I let my silkie in the "confinement hutch" with her this evening bc she seemed to be lonely. They snuggled right up together and went to sleep. [​IMG]
