Hello everyone, thanks for coming by to see me today. I know you all know what a lousy week we had here with Brian departing for the Rainbow Bridge. Could things get worse? Well, almost. Fortunately for me, a Catastrophe was avoided with the help of who we are now calling Macy’s Heroes. What went wrong? Here’s the culprit…
Can you tell what that thing is? It’s the under-part of a recliner that makes the thing go up and down. There was a recliner in the big bedroom that wasn’t used by the peeps, only by us cats. It was a Simon hidey place under it and Seal used to nap on the seat part.
Wednesday afternoon the quiet was disrupted when I got my right front paw and claw caught in that contraption. I was screaming bloody murder, pulling trying to get my paw and claw free. The Dad said it was like one of the horrible things on the TV where a wild animal gets caught is a paw trap.
There was no getting me loose. The Dad was holding me trying to keep me still. I bit and scratched him (yes, he went and got meds for that). The Mom called 911 and the fire department came. We had four firemen and the fire chief here to help me. They worked as quickly as they could. They methodically took the recliner apart and freed my paw. They will forever be known here as Macy’s heroes.
The Dad took me to the Vet as soon as the firemen left. I had x-rays and fortunately nothing was broken, just some soft tissue damage. My right front paw is swollen. I got an anti-inflammatory shot, Gabapentin for pain, and an anti-inflammatory pill pack. All in all I’m feeling pretty lucky.
The recliner is no more.
I need a rest. Have a fun Sister Saturday everyone. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
