Well mum has been around most of the day. I have gotten my fair share of scritches, treats and play time. So I guess I will let yesterday go as a one-off occurence. But don't let it happen again. You take me to the VET, you better stay home and be there for me.
Victor Tabbycat and I have come across some new bloggers from North Carolina. So drop by Finnegan & Buddy at 2Carolina Cats. Let's give them a big welcome.
I did get to work on my fur tan since we hadded a wonderful sunny day.
Mum putted one of my pictures in a frame she got for Christmas. Purrrty.
Plus when I wanted to nap she left me alone, so I curled up on her bed and hadded a loooong nap this afternoon. I even did some new exploring once I was rested.
Mum was in the dungeon and I joined her. I jumped from the floor to the laundry table, to the top of some shelves, then to the top of the furnace air duct, to sit on top of the steel beam that runs the length of the house. Mum doesn't clean up there. So I gots lots of spidey webs in my face whiskers. Mum was helpful once I got down and cleaned me up. No photo evidence. I didn't stay there long.
Derby's Mum: Still not sure about his paw. Wednesday evening he was in the kitchen and all I heard was noise and him flying through the window between the kitchen and dining room. I know he came through that window quickly as I have a small wind chime there and it was jingling pretty good. I didn't see any of this only heard the noise. All I could think of was that he had stepped on the ceramic stove top which was still warm. But he didn't appear hurt or act any differently than normal. At least not on Wednesday evening.
However, Thursday evening every time he stopped, he would lift his left front paw off the floor. EVERY TIME. He was not limping when he walked, and he would run and jump like normal. If he had done this once or twice, I would have thought it cute. But the paw lifting went on all Thursday night and again Friday morning. Like he had to get his weight off that paw. So I managed to get him to hold still long enough to get a look at that paw and noticed a small abrasion/scabby area on one of the smaller pad areas. So I erred on being cautious, being a newer cat mum, and took him in. Vet gave him a shot of anti-inflammatory stuff and antibiotics pills for me to give him for the next week. Today he is walking as normal, but is still occasionally lifting the paw.
Vet thinks he could have strained something, but hard to say. Has anyone every had this happen with their cats? Many thanks for any feedback.
