The vet appointment went great, the staples are removed.....yay! Dr.W said things are moving great. He recommended we keep Maggie confined for another week, but we can let her out for short periods of time and only if supervised.
He admits he's a mechanic, not a carpenter.... Maggie and I think he did a purrfect job!
Maggie comes out for about 15 minutes every 3-4 hours to stretch her legs and exercise in the bedroom only. The bed was a major concern because it is so high off the ground and we didn't want her jumping on and off.
The solution is a homemade staircase of sorts, built by Jr, for about $30.00 for the wood and other supplies. The carpet was leftover from a car project, so that was pretty much free.....I love that word! They might not be purrty in pink, but they serve their purpose quite well and they are very sturdy (I may have to do some decorating on them when I have some time.) Maggie is learning to use them, although, she wasn't too sure at first!
