Hello friends! I want to thank each of you for all your purrs, prayers, POTP and well wishes. I think I’m on the mend but I have a ways to go yet. I’m still sequestered in the Master Bathroom so I won’t have any undue risk of hurting myself again while I’m trying to heal.
Of course I know what happened, but I’ve not actually shared that with the peeps, so they’ve been guessing. Their current thought is that I hurt myself while jumping. Even though I’m likely the oldest kitty here, I’m still somewhat of a jumper. Do you remember the photo of Brian from Thankful Thursday, the one where he was way up in the cat tree? Well, I get way up there too. It’s not uncommon for me to leap from up there to the arm of the couch. I do that lots and it always scares the Mom if she is sitting there watching the TV.
Well, the Dad came home one day and I could hardly walk. The Mom took me to the Emergency Vet that night and I was fairly okay and the nice Vet, Dr. Elliott, didn’t find anything seriously wrong so he thought I injured myself. He sent me home with pain meds. All didn’t seem that bad since I was somewhat mobile. Then, the next day I crawled under the bed and that likely aggravated whatever was hurt. Then I almost couldn’t walk at all. Off I went to our wonderful Vet, Dr. Anderson, for another look-see. Guess what? When I got to her place I was not bad and walked around the office like semi-normal. Dr. Anderson thought I had a bad sprain or similar injury based on her examination. She felt that time to heal and rest is what I need the most. The next day I couldn’t walk at all and I’ve been totally immobile for a couple of weeks now.
So, I’m still taking my pain meds and prednisolone too. How am I doing? Well, I’m walking some, not very far and not very fast, but I am able to walk. Thursday evening I walked a bit for my Mom and even rubbed on her legs. Yesterday, while the gate was propped open for just a minute I walked out into the big bedroom and back. So, purrhaps the rest and confinement is doing me good. I really am lonely and miss my other kitty pals, although they do come in and look at me through the gate. Dad told me it’s one step at a time so that I will do.
That’s it for me today, see you soon! I love you all. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
I’m glad you are resting up, Kit! Even the most athletic kitties sometimes have accidents (which is why my human didn’t like me standing on the shower glass). I’m sending lots of healing purrs your way so you can get back to leaping around… only maybe a bit more carefully in the future!
Kit I’m glad you are such a tropper and you take your meds and you rest till the pains go away… I hope so much that you feel better soon… hugs to you and a really good caturday…
Sister Kit, we’re glad you’re doing a bit better, even though it’s forced confinement. Tons of healing purrs and purrayers to you!
Oh Sister Kit, we are so glad you are a tiny bit better but you just stay in that bedroom and get all healed up. No more flying through the air and your big jumps. Some of us do that too. Sending you lots more purrs and good thoughts.
Glad your doing better. Sending more purrs and hugs.
Sister Kit I do hope that whatever you did to hurt/injure yourself it is truly on the mend. If it’s “on again and off again” maybe it was just a little sprain that’s taking its’ time to heal up? If your vet has seen you twice and feels it’s nothing serious then that’s a GOOD THING! I’m sending POTP – never hurts to have some of that from friends right?
Healing does take a while. But one just has to take it easy and soon enough you’ll be running around with the others.
Sister Kit, please rest so you can heal properly…best wishes from all of us!
Sister Kit, We are very happy to hear you are doing a little better. And you know what? I never tell the Human much of anything either. I mean, c’mon! They’re so proud of their big brains and all–let ’em figure it out! XOXOXO
Kit, we sure are glad to hear you’re getting better. Keep up that good resting, okay? We’ll keep purring and praying for a full recovery, too. Hugs to you and your family!
Hi sweet Kit. It’s wonderful to hear from you. We are really hoping you continue to mend and quickly. Soon, you’ll be free of your confinement, but until then, take good care, sweetie!
Sweetie, I am so sorry you got hurt somehow. I scare M sometimes too with how high I can jump if I have a mind to do it (not often). I’m purring and purraying for you Sister Kit. We hope you get all better soon.
Just rest up Sister Kit, enjoy your solitude because it sounds like it won’t be long before you’ll be back with everyone again. We are glad you are beginning to feel better.
Sister Kit, we are so glad to hear that you are doing better and we continue to send you our biggest purrs, prayers and good thoughts for a quick and complete recovery. We know you must miss being with all your family. Keep up the good work and healing!
It’s great to hear from you, Sister Kit. Glad you are doing better. I’m sure Brian and your sisters miss you lots. How nice they come see you through the gate. I hope you get better soon xoxo
Slow and steady healing, Kit. Sending purrs that all will be well. xx

Look after yer fuzzy thighs! You want to be match-fit fur when there is a ‘nip toy around. YOu need them back legs for the bunny kicks.
Sweet girl, we is sorry you is hurting. Please be careful not to aggravate the situation and heal up. Like Mousie says, you need those legs for bunnie kickin.
We are so glad to hear you are feeling a little better!
Have a wonderful weekend, we will be purring for you…

We know it’s tough, Kit, but you need to take it easy so you keep getting better! We once had a cat who was hurt so bad he had to spend time confined to a large crate. So, see, it could be worse! We are just glad to hear that you are showing some improvement.
Kit, we hope you heal quickly. I know about not being able to walk. I’ve got a bad back and I’ve had a couple of incidents where it hurt when I walked. But if you take it easy…and take your medicines…you should feel better. I sure hope so. ~Ernie
Glad to hear you are a little better, Sister Kit. Just keep laying low and in time you will be back on top of that cat tree!
Sweet Sister Kit, sometimes an injury takes time to heal – we hope you have better days each and every day so you can rejoin the rest of your family soon.

I am glad you are starting to walk a little. I am praying for you. Did your folks set you up with a heating pad ? I bet that would feel good on low. XO
Glad you are walking again – so sorry you have been injured.
Sorry, too, that you are feeling lonely. I’m sure your peeps are doing all they can to help you remember you are loved!

Sister Kit, I am so glad you’re up and about a little bit. I was beginning to think the worst and that another trip to the stabby place and x-rays were in order. Sending you more healing purrz.
Praying that with each passing day you are better and better!!!!!
Puuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrr hope you feel better soon!!
Kit, we’re glad you seem to be on the mend! Please keep resting so you heal up completely! Maybe your pals can visit you in your confinement? We have our purrs going for you still!
As a dog to a cat, I’m going to suggest a round of heavy sleeping pills for a week. Kitties need to sleep a lot, and maybe if you are asleep a lot, you can’t keep hurting yourself? Please take care of yourself.
Hope you are all better real soon.
Sister Kit we are so glad that you are on the mend even if it is slowly! We have been sending you POTP and prayers every night!

Glad you are a week bit better
OK LADY DON’T YOU EVER DO THAT AGAIN OK????? Boy oh boy we come back from being worried to find ourselves fit to worry again!!! Take it easy and rest and get better!
Kit, is does sound as if you are on the mend, and you know you don’t want to reinjure yourself. Sometimes it takes a while to heal. At least your fursibs are visiting with you. We’ll continue our purrs and prayers. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
