Caught Sleeping

Every blog needs some fuzzy cuteness every now and then.

Nothing More Peaceful

Warm and Fuzzy

Two weeks ago, I accidentally shut the sliding glass door on Louie's tail. I shut it hard and didn't realized what had happened until I looked down and saw a big clump of cat hair on the ground, and one super freaked out cat who proceeded to run away each time I approached. Yes, there was blood and cat hair everywhere. We couldn't find the cat until the following day, and I brought him into the vet. We thought the tail was broken, which meant the possibility of a tail amputation. I felt so bad!

Everything worked out in the end - the tail is not broken, and the two inch gash has healed nicely. I gave Louie his antibiotics via portions of tuna fish, which he loved. He has resumed sleeping with me at night, so I think he forgives me. I take my time closing that door now - I never want to go through something like that again.

After the 2nd visit to the vet - he's feeling better enough to roam out of the cat carrier.

Oh, what a horrible thing to happen to both you and Louie, I am sure that he knows it was an accident though. I am glad that he is on the mend and I hope that you are too! xx

Oh, Poor sweet Louie! And I bet you felt like a real schmuck... I know I would have. Glad the tail is still intact and healing... xox

Ouch! We had a few close calls too. Our kids dog, Wilbur, had a tail issue too, it just hung limp. The vet called it a sprained tail, or the phrase he liked better, a broken wag. (o;
