View Full Version : Just a little LOVE!

Well Isabelle is 5 and a half. Stimpy the cat is 18 (going on 5, he is great!). But the two of them don't really have much of a relationship. They acknowledge each other and occasionally show a bit of interest in each other, but by no means would I call them "buddies".

Isabelle came back from her knee surgery and seemed to have a bruised chest. Probably from being hoisted up and around by a careless vet tech. Everytime I went to pick her up after the surgery she would screach if she were picked up under the chest. So I had to be very careful about the way I moved her around.

I made a nice soft nest for her on the couch, using the blanket she is normlly not allowed to lay on. I left her to sleep off the effects of the trauma, meds, and surgery.

Stimpy was very curious and quite attentive to Isabelle and actually seemed concerned. Especially if I picked her up under her chest and she howled. Each day things got more interesting...




I am AMAZED at Stimpy. He has never wanted to be touched by Isabelle. And the same for Belli. But they both seem to acknowledge that this week is different, and are sharing a bit of love!

That's lovely. Clearly a truce while Isabelle recouperates.

That is so nice. Animals seem to put all rivalries aside when one of their own is hurting-perfect example of love.:luv:

Aww that is so lovely!! I think Stimpy knows Bella is under the weather, it's amazing how animals pick up on each others feelings I think! Wonderful pics, hope Bella heals up nicely for you!! :luv: :luv:

Wow, that is soooo totally sweet! :luv::luv: Give Isabelle an extra hug - how is she doing? Did you ask the vet about her chest?
I would have never guessed that Stimpy is 18! He looks great!:)
