Boy oh boy, what a day today turned out to be! My poor little kitten (Lonzo, a silver tabby,) started limping whilst we were away, so as soon as we got back I made an appointment with the vets. Well, to cut a long story short, she has a broken leg, which is further complicated because the break is on the growth plate....I have been from the regular vet to see a specialist, who kept her in and is going to operate tomorrow. So far it's cost me £500, and the op estimate is for £2000 !! OMG, I am so pleased we took out pet insurance (although a large part of today's expenditure won't be covered.) All this tooing and froing with 3 littlies in-tow, (one of whom was my 4 year old son, Noah, who is Autistic, and finds anything out of routine/strange places difficult to handle, so that was no picnic in the park I can tell you!)
We have no idea how she did it, poor little love, but she's still been playful and not off her food.
So folks, my advice to all you pet-owners out there, is for goodness sake, TAKE OUT PET INSURANCE! You never know when you might need it!
Oh yes, once she is home I've got to keep her cage-rested (in a small dog-cage) for SIX WEEKS!!! Goodness knows how any of us will cope with that!
I'll let you know how she gets on. x
