Last year, way back when we first joined Weekend Cat Blogging, we introduced everyone to Pumpkin and Muffin, two cats that were homeless. They've been the neighborhood cats for quite some time, and mom and some other people feed them. Mom worried about Pumpkin, because he has arthritis and can't run good. She tried to make him an indoor cat years ago, but he wouldn't have that. This week mom took him to the vet because his foot was injured, and he was having trouble walking. The foot was swollen and looked like someone had been hitting it with a hammer. But, mom and the vet think he climbed up in the hood of a car, to keep warm, and the fan belt injured him when the car turned on. This is a very dangerous thing for kitties, and happens a lot. Many are maimed or killed when that happens.
Once Pumpkin came back from the vet, mom put him in the Green Room (also known as the squirrel nursery). He's now an indoor cat, and he's very happy. He kneads the bed constantly, making biscuits. And he never stops purring. We're going to try and get Muffin to come live inside, but she is too scared right now.
This week, WCB is being host by Samantha and Tigger at Life From A Cat's Perspective. You gotta go to their blog and check out the singing cats! And don't forget Bad Kitty Cats Festival Of Chaos, The Carnival Of Cats, The Friday Ark.
