My poor little devil Kitty sustained a mystery puncture in his foot sometime this week. It got infected and abscessed and required emergency surgery this morning. Ouch to Kitty, ouch to Mommies wallet..
Anyway.. the little stinker has his right rear leg up to his
in a cast. When he gets home from the vets, he is not allowed to go outside, jump, play or otherwise be.. a cat.
Hmnn.. this is a quandary.. I have 3 dogs and a doggie door. No way to keep the cat in, and I certainly don't want him clacking around in his plaster outside where he would be a target for any wildlife.
What do do?.. Walla! The cat has traveled with me in the Burro
many times and he is quite comfy in there. SO... He will go live in it for a week or more, safe from playing puppies and stairs and dirt and other obstacles and physical barriers that might otherwise re injure him. There isn't much for him to maneuver around with his cast on and he will have plenty of space to wander as he feels up to it.
I feel bad that he will stay in there alone, but it sure is nice to have that option vs. expensive vet hospital isolation.
I may sleep in there with him for the first nite or two. Don't know. But it will be clean and quiet and safe. He will recover nicely in there.
