Our darling little velvet girl with her Princess ways went to meet Simon the Vet from MediVet yesterday. Momma found more lumpies in her groin and this time Momma just was not happy with them because they had gone hard and she was chewing her 8th niples raw. Of course, when Simon felt her, they had all but vanished... but his expert touch revealed that she has an inguinal Hernia which is what Momma could feel all the way up into her groin area. He says that there is necrosis there and eventually she will need a 'nip and tuck' to put it all right. She is always going on about her figure as you know and she kindly asked Simon the Vet if he could take off her 'kittening belly' whilst he was at it - the problem is, she wasn't flirty or loud enough and she muffled it from under Momma's coat! If she want's to have extra slimming surgery she is just going to have to pluck up the courage and ask properly, all this hiding and shaking will just not do at the Vets, you have to show them who is boss!!!
Personally, I don't think she needs a tummy job and feel that when all the 'escaped fat' is wrangled back into it's rightful place and she is all healed, she will have that bikini 'pre-kitten' belly again that she had a year ago!
Lillibet had missed Faith so much, that when she returned home she kissed Faith all over, rubbed her body the length of her Mum's (not that this is difficult, she is longer than Faith already) Our little LilliLongLegs was just so overwhelmed she followed Faith all over the house, chirruping and purring and jumping over her and trying to engage Faith in play - Faith was so vocal when she arrive home, telling ManSlave about her 'ordeal' - she is such a Drama Queen. Emphasising that Simon had carried her, weighed her (and no man should know a ladies weight) and felt around her body with out so much of a how to do! But, she said, his only saving grace was that he smiled at her after she did 'THE FROWN' and he didn't use the FURMOMETER!
In a few weeks the parentals will reluctantly take her in for surgery, Momma will be a mess of course, she hates being away from us babies, but knowing that Faith will be in expert paws, will be a weight of her mind... what will weigh heavy is the cost of their Summer Holiday in return for Faith's nip & tuck. ::shakes head:: will they ever get away this year - we want a party!!!
