Those of you who are regular readers will know of Oscar our very lovely ginger cat. I have always known that Oscar and I have a connection, he loves me loads and we have deep meaningful conversations. In fact if you asked all of the Madams they would say I love him more than I love them. This is true, after all he is cute, fluffy (they are neither) but most of all does not answer back!
However it was not until yesterday that I realised quite how deep a connection we have. It seems Oscar had been in a fight with one of the local bullies, he returned home minus his collar, a cut on his ear and a distinctive limp! We spent the day doing synchronised limping around the house. I contemplated a visit to the physio for him, but in the end decided he would not like the heat treatment as would play havoc with his fur, so opted for the Vets instead. Oscar did his usual ‘make like a star fish’ when I tried to get him in the cat carrier, but with some gentle persuasion he was in and we were in the car, with the feline on the back seat. All was going well until we hit the first Devon corner, he took being rolled around in the box quite well really! He was a good boy at the vets, no hissing or savaging of helping healing hands. Antibiotics were administered in his collarless neck and we were sent on our way.
Poor little soldier is walking like a three legged cat, contemplating re naming him Robin (as in Reliant!)
I hoping the antibiotics kick in soon, maybe I should have asked for some also!
