Re: OT - kitten news + more cat news

Percy has adapted to his giant red splint. I'm an ace at dropping the antibiotic pills down his throat 2x daily, and he really, really likes the pain meds. I think I've given him too much because I know there is not enough to last four more days! I hope I haven't created an addict. :o) We see his regular vet, who is also the surgeon, on Tuesday. I'll give you all an update then. Thanks for all the kind words and positive thoughts.

Yes, what Auralie said, that kitty is very lucky to have you. Poor baby. I hope it recovers fast!

 What a shame, Zem. As you say, it's always something. How
fortunate Percy is to have you to care for him. Best wishes for
his recovery.

This was a very exciting day here. Otis woke me up just before five this
morning. When I turned on the light a cat began to scream. Seems Percy
Amadeus was on top of Otis's kennel apparently sharing dog treats with him
when he caught his back leg under the bars on top of the kennel. When I
found him he was hanging by his leg which was literally woven through the
bars! Needless to say I got dressed, called the emergency vet to see if
there was a chance of Percy's dying before 7 when my vet opened (there
wasn't) and drove to my vet's office where I left him. $566 later he is
home with a huge red splint on his let. He broke the little bone in his
lower leg and severely dislocated the big one at the ankle, so it's back to
the vet on Tuesday when the orthoapedist is back in town to see if Percy
will need surgery. He is sleeping now and seems pretty much all right
except that Dempsey decided to attack him right after we got home. It's
always something...
