Maple WoMER (see this post if you don’t know how she got that name) has spent the past couple of weeks really living up to her name. I don’t know why she would do that because it seems like the most horrible thing ever. Not only has Melly been complaining about how much Maple costs ($2500 and counting!), but Maple has suffered a lot. This week she had to go to the vet and have her eye taken out! As terrible as that sounds, I think Maple feels better without the eye than she did with it. I don’t want to get into details about why.
Maple doesn’t really have an eye patch or a peg leg (her leg is fine, in case you were worried). The place where she used to have the eye is too sore for her to wear a patch. But I think once it heals, she’ll be the coolest bunny around. I’m sure Melly will make her an awesome eye patch!
In the meantime, my co-pets and I decided to have a show of support by wearing our own virtual eye patches.
Flopsy was all, “Cats don’t need to wear an eye patch to be cool.” And I was all like, “Cats, if they’re so cool, why do they always have to tell you about it?”
Oakley and Maple are best friends and are always hanging out together. Only now Maple is locked up in the dinning room and no one is allowed to visit her except during special visiting hours. Melly won’t tell me when those are so I just have to watch her through the fireplace screen.
Firetail is a girl chicken, that’s why she lays eggs, so she wanted a fancy patch. The eye on her patch is an improvement over her real eye!
Naturally, Cheap had to have a fancy eye patch too. She really shouldn’t run with it on because she can’t see very well. I hope Maple will learn to run and hop just like normal even though she’s missing an eye.
The rest of us co-pets all put our eye patches on the same side as Maple WoMER’s missing eye (the right side) as a show of solidarity, but the horses decided to have their eye patch on the same side as their mane. They’re very fashion conscious. Or maybe Phoenix and Chesapeake just wanted to cause trouble.
We’d love to post photos of you and your pets wearing an eye patch! That would be a great way to let Maple WoMER know you care. Please send you photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll put it in this post!
If you’d like to help with Maple WoMER’s medical expenses, consider buying something from our store. Maple probably needs one more surgery to remove the lower teeth on her right side. She really is the World’s Most Expensive Rabbit! But after that she will hopefully, knock on a wooden leg, be fine.
