But I won’t let her get used to it.
The reason I’m letting her sleep in, is because yesterday her sister had a medical crisis and went to the hospital, and I hardly saw her at all until later in the day. She was busy comforting and taking care of her sister from the time she woke up- (it had started the night before)- until late last night.
I’m letting her sleep in to keep her here for a while. Then when I’ve had my snuggles, grooming, playtime, breakfast and treats, I may wake her up and let her do her thing.
Bottom line is, the Can Opener owes me extra cuddles and treats and a boatload of whipped cream. I might demand a can of tuna too. That was not cool. Both Sushi and I were not happy. We don’t mind her helping her sister, but we had to be stuck with the dry cereal in our dish for hours until things got stabilized, and then when she came home she was busy cleaning.
She was also very upset, because her sister had been severely dehydrated and was in distress, and the emt’s said she needed to go to the hospital. Once they took her to the ER- (no one was allowed to stay with her)- they just left her in the lobby and she was cold, crying, in pain and scared. There were only two other people in the E.R., but somehow she had to wait from 11:00 -3 pm before she was even taken to a room. That’s a long time for a person in crisis to have to sit alone waiting for someone to even come and take them to a room to be evaluated.
But 4 hours later she was taken to a room and evaluated, and today is doing better. Tons of fluids, and stabilized, she’s back home and starting to look more like herself.
It’ll be a week or more before her sister is really okay- but Sushi and I won’t be letting the Can Opener out of our sight again for a while.
And if she thinks we’re going to let her sleep in again in the morning, she has another think coming.
