Callie the Cone Cat

Poor Callie finally had her dental extraction to remove her chipped canine tooth. It turned out to be quite an ordeal for her; first, her sutures ripped and had to be restitched a week after surgery, and then she was given an uncomfortable cone to recover in.

 Cats don't do as well as dogs with cones. I suspect it's because cats take themselves too seriously to be able to endure awkwardly bumping into everything. The poor dear wasn't allowed any playtime for a week after getting stitches and she ended up developing some bad bathroom habits out of the frustration (unfortunately, her favorite new location was my bed!).

After a week, she was finally allowed to play and release all her tension and energy. I decided to capture the fun on video.
