On Thursday my sister and I went on our regular shopping excursions, but we had the boys with this time. Makes for exciting shopping with the boys! We got everything done quite early, and it was SO hot (my kinda weather babe!!) that we decided to come to our house with some Hunters Dry and enjoy the great weather. We chatted up a storm about all the goings on in our respective lives and time flew by fast. I wanted to show E how naughty my kitty had become since she found the joys of “Sheba” prawn and fish cat food, but she was a bit miz, very quiet and withdrawn. I thought the girl was just hot, she is after all a pitch black kitty.
So eventually I say goodbye to E and she goes home, about 5 mins later I pick Cassey up to see why she’s looking at me in such a strange way, and then I saw the biggest wound I’ve seen in my life!! I (obviously) panic and phone Elize to just come back please! So she rushes back here to find me in a flat panic (who would have thought I’m THIS bad in an emergency, I’m usually calm and collected and I think rationally, but not last Thursday!) Anyway, we rush her to the Vet and he said it loks like razor wire or palisade fencing. She cut herself open right across her abdomen, from one side to the other, her scar is longer that my Nephrectomy scar!! We went to look if she cut herself on our palisade fence, we have 50 meters of it at the back, and sure as nuts there it was, my poor little kitty impaled herself on our fence! The Vet said she’s the luckiest cat he’s ever seen. She didn’t puncture any organs and her muscle is in tact, the wound is just enormous!!
She’s home now, with drainage pipes, a bit yukky, but the pain is not as bad today as it has been when she came home. She could hardly walk, I felt so sorry for.Tomorrow the drainage pipes come out, then she will feel much better. We will have to have a look at how we can make our back fence much safer for her. Pete’s already come up with some ideas which he’ll implement next week.
Other than that we had a fantastic day with my sister yesterday, she came over for a braai coz my BIL is in Durban on a systems upgrade. We had such a fantastic time with her again! Today is one of those balmy summer days, it’s just gorgeous, the boys had a swim yesterday and will definitely swim again today. I love summer!!
“Here lives a very special cat indeed.”
