Nursing duty is not easy
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
I told you that Mom L has
talking walking new-moan-yah, right?
Well that means I have become her Primary Caretaker of course, so I must spend most of my day and night with her in case she wants something. But I do have to call in the back-up nursing staff when I need a litter box break or a snack or just to stretch my legs.
But I gotta tell you, my back up nursing staff needs to get some refresher lessons on proper Mom L care taking. Why just look at how KK decided to pull her first shift!
I just could not believe my eyes when I came back to find her snoozing away in a sun puddle in the cat tower that overlooks our bed where Mom L is recovering. And believe you me KK was sound asleep!
Well I sorted her out straight away and next shift she pulled she did so properly.
She faced Mom L and was snuggled as tightly as she could get to her leg so KK would know the instant Mom L needed anything.
As for TKS, she has has many years under my paw for nurse training and she has been pulling her shifts in a pretty responsible manner.
Here she is snuggled tight against Mom L, but unfortunately she had her back to Mom L so’s no way would she wakey up if she couldn’t feel Mom L move. I almost dinged TKS for not facing Mom L like I trained her, but then I moved around to check out just how asleep TKS was. I was gonna give her a fright for not facing Mom L.
But I was caught by TKS who was in no way napping on her nurse shift! She was keeping a close watch for any movement from Mom L.
So as you can see, it isn’t easy being on round the clock nurse duty. I mostly pull the all nighter’s and stick with Mom L from dark until morning. But it sure does help having back up nursing staff. I just need to get KK back into some more training to make sure she stays consistent.
How do you handle your nursing duties when you are called upon?
