Target is Hurt
This was going to be all about our book Katz Tales but we've had a disaster.
Target was out all day on Sunday. I called for him at lunch, at teatime and then, really worried, went out at night and walked the streets, looking for him. Tam, Snow and the other cats came with me, also worried that I was worried.
Target heard me and came home limping. When Tom picked him up in his arms, Target heaved a sigh of relief. His front paw was horribly twisted. We feared a break but it wasn't swollen. Also, he didn't mind us touching it.
There are now 24 vets anywhere near us. But thanks to Cathy, we got a phone call through to a vet. He thinks Target fell and hurt his shoulder, damaging his nerves. A visit to the clinic this morning showed he has a dislocated paw that needs surgery. Vet who can do the job lives 280km away so planning trip in the morning.
Target is asleep under the bed now. He is not in pain thank goodness but we're all nervous wrecks.
Purr for us?
PS I don't want to bother him with the flashy thing so this pic was taken Friday, before the accident.
