Sorry, that’s the brakes
My cat, Motor, has to put the brakes on for a while. He was outside a few days ago and when he came in, something was not quite right with one of his front legs. The vet x-rayed him and we were told he had a broken leg.
We don’t know how he did it, but he is not a happy cat right now. Dogs sometimes get to wear the “cone of shame” for a while but cats just have to learn to deal with it.
He keeps asking me if he can go out. No, Motor, not for a while. You get to wear that colorful splint for four to six weeks.
I have been a little distracted lately making sure he doesn’t fall off of things. Why does he have to jump to the highest spots?
Here he is during happier times on my lap with our other cat and not-so-tiny dog.
Motor celebrated his 16th birthday recently. I hope he recovers well and is able to celebrate a few more.

We hope that Motor recovers fast! 🙂
Our dog Gabby is 16 years old.
Thanks! Sixteen is old for a dog or a cat. Hope Gabby is in relatively good health. 🙂
I hope Motor has a quick recovery because I can imagine it is not easy keeping him from jumping. He definitely looks like he wants to be out exploring without his colorful bandage and I hope he’s ready for more quiet days with your other cat and adorable not-so-tiny dog.
Thanks! I hope your dog is recovering well. It’s hard for them to have weird objects on their legs!
Ouch, cats don’t do good with casts. Pippin had one and kept trying to run away.
Yes, you’re right about that!
A get well soon wish to your kitty!
Thanks! I’m at the vet for a re-check right now. 😺
Poor thing. Hope he will be better soon.
He’s all better now, thanks. 🙂 Sorry for the delayed response. Playing catch up…..
No problem! I never get a chance for quick replies either!!!
