05:21 pm - Cat pics
Thanks for all the kind well wishes for poor old Milo. Here are three pics of him showing off his poorly leg.

My sister pointed out he was probably bitten some way from home which means he got himself over our garden fence which is more than six feet high, and through the cat flap with half his leg bitten away, so I'm impressed with him.

Some people say cats crawl off to be alone when they are hurt - glad that didn't happen

He looks like he's coping really well - what a trooper! Catch me looking that chilled if I'd had half my leg bitten off...

They just forget it I suppose, he's sleeping like a baby now

I see a bandage around his right front leg as well. Is that to distract him so he won't gnaw at the bandage on his hind leg or did he get hurt there as well?

It does distract him; he keeps shaking his paw as if he's trying to get a wristwatch to start. It's where they put in the drip. I don't know whether I'm allowed to take it off, but he's going back to the vet tomorrow so I'll just leave it.

I'd leave it too, if that happened to one of my cats. When it comes to this sort of thing I'm quite firmly in the "better safe than sorry" camp.

Poor Milo! But he looks quite pleased with himself in the last picture. Perhaps he's congratulating himself on doing so well in such difficult circumstances. Good luck for tomorrow.

Polyphant and I are both REALLY glad he's OK. The photos are shamefully cute.

I'm glad to see that he seems to have plenty of appetite - both for food and for going out. Those are good things, I think.

I'm hoping for the best from tomorrow's visit to the vet.

Again, our little cat Pixie must also have dragged herself over a five-foot fence and in through the cat flap with two legs broken in several places. It's amazing what a determined cat can do, and wonderful that their instinct is to head for home -- and help!

Hope Milo is okay.

It's his back leg; that's much harder to jump fences with than a poorly front one! He looks as if he's doing very well though. He's eating, and he looks very strong and healthy (and pleased to be home), so I'm sure he'll be fine. [sends virtual cuddles and warm lap] Cats are tough little creatures, leaping onto beds after stomach ops.

Is he Milo Minderbinder? ;-)

He was called Milo when we got him with his sister about three years ago. I've heard Milo is the most common pet name (?)

- just googled it an apparently there was a film called 'Milo and Otis'?

Ahhhh yes, there was! I've never heard it as a pet name here though, so I immediately thought of Milo from Catch-22.
