Guilt

It's all my fault that Hope had to go to the Vet Hospital and that they had to shave her back leg and fix the abscess that happened because we were playing one day and I accidentally batted her on her thigh. I'm so sorry Hope! Mom said the nice lady vet at the VCA gave Hope pain medicine and some for mom to bring home along with antibiotics and instructions for doing warm compresses so the abscess would continue to drain. Mom stayed up all night with her in the study. Hope had to wear this cone around her neck that made her very unhappy. Today mom stayed home because she didn't feel so good herself (I'm guessing exhaustion) and to continue caring for Hope.

I feel so guilty! I really like my new sister and would never hurt her on purpose.

Hope is much better today and got to take the icky collar off and run around the study and the living room and she got Tuna Juice and all the soft canned Salmon Kitty Food she wanted. Mom took a long nap and feels better too. I feel better because I talked to Hope through the door to the study and told her how sorry I was for making her hurt and she said she understood and knew I didn't mean to hurt her. She also said I shouldn't give mom a hard time when she wants to trim my nails. I'll try not to...really I will.

Ah, do not feel guilty! Accidents happen, and Hope knows you did not mean to hurt her. Just give her a little kiss to make up.

Awwww, I know Hope forgives you. Sometimes stuff happens and we don't mean it.

Tommy, Russell poked Caroline once and she got a great big old fat lip that she had to go to the cat fix-it place for (and get medicine and warm compresses, too, which she also hated--oh, the screeching and squirming!). Stuff happens sometimes. I bet Hope knows you didn't mean her harm. And she'll be good as new in no time!

Don't let anyone lay a guilt trip on you, Tommy. What happened was a complete accident and not your fault.
