Sigh..sigh..big sigh. This morning somehow I stepped on my cat. It all happened so quickly that I don't even know where I stepped on her! She seemed OK..sort limping around a bit, but OK. I apologized profusely but she kept her distance. I, feeling like a very bad pet owner, went to work. When I got home she was barely walking. Feeling like a horrible pet owner; I scooped her up and went to the nearest animal hospital fearing her leg was broken or her hip was dislocated. I told the Dr what happened. She told me not to worry, that everyone steps on their pet at least once. Then, after a careful and thorough examination it was determined there was nothing broken or out of place. She had only sustained some "soft tissue damage". The Vet gave me a mild pain reliever...she called it a "kitty narcotic". I get to squirt it in Marmalade's mouth twice a day for 3 days. She should recover in about a week. I hope she doesn't become addicted to it...I don't want to have to start taking her to Cat-anon meetings!

    It can happen so quickly. We have a new kitten at our house and he is always underfoot. Thankfully he hasn't been stepped on - yet! Hope Marmalade is better soon!
