An injury

Lizzies little kitten has been unwell while I was away. He had torn ligaments in his knee which required him wearing a cast for a week. He didn’t like it and stopped eating and started losing weight and the vet thought he might have had a virus that wasn’t showing up in blood tests and in general he just caused a whole lot of worry and upset for Lizzie. She was leaving him at the vets during the day while she was at work so they could basically force feed him and keep an eye on him.

He seems to have really picked up since Wednesday though. He had the cast taken off and the knee seems ok and he’s been eating well so maybe he just wasn’t happy about the cast weighing him down.

Look at the poor little bubba, he’s so sweet even with that huge leg.

  1. Espressa stops eating after trauma. But she can’t resist bonito fish flakes, so I load up on those. If she eats them then I know it’s just the trauma, not true illness.

    • Yes, our vet told us years ago that if the cats stopped eating just buy a BBQ chook and put some in a bowl and you’d see if they were really sick or not.
