Ayla Home

THE BIG THING:  Well, I brought Ayla back to the vet again this morning.  Its OK!  It was for observation and removing the pressure bandage.  She came home early afternoon, and slept most of the rest of the day.  So did I.

Marley and Iza were concerned by her new absence.  They stayed quiet most of the day just watching and waiting.
Marley watched the inside of the house...
Iza watched outside.
When Ayla got home, I went searching for the inflatable collar to replace the plastic Elizabethan Cone.  I looked everywhere, but couldn't find it, so I went out and bought a new one.   Here is a front view.
And a side view.  It seems FAR more comfortable than the cone.  In fact, the couple of times I glanced in the door while she was sleeping, it seemed to make a rather good pillow!
Iza and Marley came right over to greet her.  Marley has actually been quite friendly while she was in the MewsRoom the past few days.  He stayed near the door many hours and talked to her under it.  Just constant little quiet "merfs" to let her know he was there...  I heard her near the door talking to him on a few occasions, too.
He even gave her some head kissies and friendly sniffs.
Ayla is much more alert and active than yesterday.  Last night she just sat in a corner looking miserable.  Tonight, she was pacing around and happy to get out of the room.

I think I will be able to post about the positive aspects of the various visits tomorrow.  For now though, we are both going to make an early night of it...
