On Friday I accidently backed over our dear, sweet cat’s tail when we were leaving for school. It was fractured and bruised in the area that houses the nerves for his bladder. So right now, poor Frodo is at the vet’s, with a catheter and IV. We’re waiting to see if his inability to, well, go potty is caused by temporary swelling from the injury or if those nerves are permanently damaged. On Thursday, the vet will remove the catheter and, if Frodo can use his litter box, he gets to come home. If not, well… :(
We’re all hoping he heals up!
The vet bills are mounting at an alarming rate and my children have set up a Tupperware container labeled “Coins for Kitty”. They’ve pooled all of their birthday money and loose change. It’s really sweet. And my Favorite Sister and my mother have both called in with vows of emotional and financial support. This cat has really won the hearts of us all.
