No stitchy pics today...

Midge is feeling a little poorly today and hates his mum!

When he came to me for a cuddle this morning, i picked him up as normal and he became very vocal, not like him at all, he's a loud purrer but not agressive and then tried to bite me. After DH and i had a close inspection to see where the problem was we had an emergency visit to the vets. It seems he has sat down somewhere on something very sharp, broken glass? barbed wire? There's an open wound about 3.5cm long. Major problem is due to where it is located (such close proximity to his boy bits!) there is not a lot to stitch together, so the poor little puss has to wear this 'hooded collar' until they see him again next Wednesday. They hope it will have healed a little and will decide if he needs to be operated on and stitched, if not what the next option is. He's doped up with antibiotics and painkillers to keep him calm and rested. The new bed DD bought him seems to be doing the trick and keeping him nice and cosy. There was some mention of cat haters putting things down to stop cats going in gardens, it better not have been that, if i find out it is and where they live, they will be handing over the cash to pay the vets bills.

I've received 2 awards this week for my blog, so a big thank you to :-

Marian for the spreader of love award

Sally for the fabulous blog award

I have great trouble choosing just a few blogs from my long bloglist to pass on these awards to. You all deserve it for the different ways in which offer support and advice to me and for the wondeful work i see on your own blogs. Feel free to take this and add it to your own blog and nominate other bloggers you feel deserve it.

Have a great weekend

I hope Midge is better soon - I hope he didn't get injured by a booby trap set by a cat-hater. Lottie says miaow!! (which I interpret as get well soon)

Poor Midge! Lucky he has painkillers. Carter, the golden retriever at the assisted living faciliy I visit, has one of those collars. He had surgery on his eye. Midge could fit in the middle of the thing and take a nap. Carter is HUGE.

awwww i hope Midge is starting to get better and that the person/people who are doing this mean act are caught and fine under the cruelty to animals act. and the fine is just as high so they think twice and yes also throw the vets bill at them.
