Roxie, the Japanese bobtail, is back from the vet’s. She had an extended stay and some surgery there because of a recurring urinary tract problem. CCL and I were allowed to visit her during her convalescence but now she’s back at my house, being well, Roxie. Jean Claude, the black Bombay, who had been very needy while Roxie was away appeared happy when I brought Roxie home. He greeted her at the door in fact. Roxie, however, was initially not so excited to see JC. While in her small carrier and then when I let her out she hissed loudly at him. Much later, after she got settled and spent some time cuddling with me, did she again resume her affection for her pal.
