On Wednesday in the evening we noticed that Princess was limping.
As Rowan has often had a limp from jumping off of the wardrobes we were not concerned. Rowan is usually fine in a couple of days.
Yesterday, she was still limping and when we touched her foot she cried.
I rang the vets but they could only fit us in this morning.
No food after 10 o'clock last night in case she needed an anesthetic.
So we took her along at 9.30 this morning and after the vet gently feeling her foot he thought she may have broken something.
We left her there for an x ray and we were told later in the day that she had broken one of the bones in her back foot.
How on earth did that happen?
It was odd on Wednesday when Tom went into the bathroom this linen basket was laying on the floor on its side.
As you can see this is next to the sink and Rupert likes to sit on this for a tickle and then goes into the basin for a drink.
We can only think that he jumped off and tipped it over and it fell on Princess's foot.
What other explanation can there be?
The vet showed me the x ray and it was clear to see the break in the long bone.
Luckily it was a clean break that didn't need any pins etc.
So, we have one miserable little moggy with a bonky foot. She's not happy poor thing.
She is managing to get around but with difficulty, I'm sure as time goes on she will master it but for now there's nothing we can do.
Cats are so wonderful, as soon as she got home she bonked her way into the bathroom and managed to get into the litter tray., she could easily have done this in the carrier but she waited until she got home.
We have to take her back in two weeks time for another x ray to see if its mending okay.
Apparently its unusual for cats to break bones unless they are in a road accident.
