Devoted pet owner?

Loki likes to snuggle with his head on my shoulder just under my jaw. When he was itty bitty, this was no problem. He has gotten longer and heavier, and holding him up like that gets the biceps complaining after 20 minutes. Did I mention how much he likes to snuggle?

Since keeping his activity level as low as possible is one of the key things to let the leg finish healing and stopping the seroma from building up (it’s due to irritation of the tissues because of the scarring. It should stop… sooner or later) I had to come up with a way to keep him content and still.

So, I rummaged through my trunk of fabric, found a rectangle of panne velvet, and made a ‘kitten sling’ to wear. He comes up for his snuggle, I pull one of the sides of the sling up and over him, and he rests there for 20 mins to an hour, leaving my hands free, and able to get things done.

Snuggle

Purrrrrrr
