I kept Grant in his carrier all night on the sofa next to me so I could hear him if he needed out. Luckily he didn’t mind, and slept most of the time, and didn’t worry his woulds at all. I was awake and asleep on an off all night.
In the early morning I gave him his pain medicine, then after he had time for that to take effect I let him out for breakfast and using the sandbox. I decided then that a vet visit wasn’t warranted and let him alone. He was fine all day and has showed no sign of a recurrence of his bothering the wound.
Sherman got his pain medicine too, and has not been having any issues after the surgery.
I mentioned that Rhea was unhappy when the boys were gone – I’m sure she likes them fine, but a lot of the issue with that she likes things to be just so and changes in the routine make her uncomfortable. Davout is more nervous, but doesn’t have the same need to organize things to his liking.
Davout and the boys are a little mad that I haven’t let them out into the yard or the garage. I want to be able to see how the boys are reacting to medication and the wounds.
The pain meds are making them a little more sleepy, but they still got up and played with each other and with Rhea on and off during the day. Grant even went into the carrier I enclosed him in last night a time or two to nap in.
Everything is back to Rhea’s liking.
