Poor Luna is shiny and has put on weight and is a glorious sight to behold, right up until she rolls over.  Her belly, where they shaved her for her spay, is bald as a boiled egg.  This probably why she spends as much time as possible with her belly pressed up against me.

I'm going to break down and put a cat door out to the garage.  For her, the garage is as outdoors as she's gonna get (there is another door that leads to the outside, and a side yard that is gated, but that is next to a dog who would do nothing but bark if I let her out there.  She will also have use of the dog room on nice days-so she has plenty of access to the sun and to her Pal Oliver who goes otu there on sunny days too.

We may have to get sunscreen for her belly though.  This is me trying to work while lying down with a cat on my chest.  Then I tried to take a picture of that, but she kept looking at me not the computer.

Word of explanation this is me working flat on my back-no makeup, glasses. Right now I'm just grateful to be able to do a little work-it's been a tough time.

NORMALLY-the cat is sprawled out over my chest and I type over her. She only moved because I wanted to take her picture. Now she's in the window very pleased with herself for creating such mayhem.

I am glad you both are perking along. HAW.

So glad you're recovering, Debra. And I'm sure it gives Luna comfort to press her belly against might be itchy and your warmth would ease it.

Keep hanging in!

I love that picture! And I love seeing you again. It's been too long ;)

Belly kisses for Luna. Been there myself. Oweeeee!

I know Luna is not as traumatized about her belly as I seem to be-but really she's such a NICE cat, I can't imagine tossing her away and it makes me wince to see her little belly.

Based on the size of the incision, she was probably pregnant-we are talking 6 or more stitches, and that makes me sad too.

Luna is not sad. Luna has shelves to sit on, she has full access to under the house (but can't get into the yard), and the garage is at her command. She also has numerous fully dedicated to the cat perches, toys and an unlimited supply of cat food. When I am busy, the bird will sit and talk to her endlessly. So she is not sad at all.
