In the meanwhile I've filled my small ceramic bed with tissue and made a nest there. It's smaller, but the ceramic feels fresh.
Now that I don't have the stitches anymore Papa brought my home back. He left some tissue paper nearby after cleaning my cage, and I took it and made a new nest inside.
I'm very happy to have my comfy home back.
But no. He didn't give me anything or put things on me. Instead, he removed MY stitches. Papa held me facing up while Dr. Ozawa cut the wires carefully with a pair of scissors. I didn't feel anything when he cut and removed the first two, but he had some trouble removing the third and it hurt me a bit. I got a bit nervous and wanted to leave, but Papa was holding me to make sure that I wouldn't move. In a few minutes he had removed all of them. Dr. Ozawa took me and played with me for a few moments. He checked my belly again and said that I was fine.
What I don't understand is why he removed MY stitches. I already got used to them. The first days after he opened my belly they hurt a lot, but lately they didn't hurt at all. I think they looked cool, like the one that Papa has on his tongue.
Now I have a very big scar in my belly. Soon it will be difficult to see because my fur is growing back. Perhaps I should ask Papa to shave me sometimes so I could show it to everybody...
Papa saw me sleeping like this yesterday. Since then, when he goes to work he leaves the cold-weather-making machine switched on. It's not so hot anymore and I can sleep again on my nest.
