Boogie Blogging Friday - Limited Mobility Edition

Friday, October 29, 2010



Poor Boogie. He injured one of his pads on Wednesday morning, so we've been trying to limit his mobility to keep the wound from opening up every time he walks on it. We've had limited success, as it apparently doesn't hurt. So he's been padding all over the house, leaving dots of blood over every available surface. Today we got smart and I wrapped the foot in a pad with some Neosporin and then put one of his ice booties on. Hopefully it'll heal up soon so he can return to his normally scheduled activities.

Mrs. Bitch, Boogie has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to the snackies. It's amazing he still has his girlish figure.

Is he being uber sucky?
With Shayla she sucks right up and won't leave my side when she's hurt or sick.

Janiece said...

Not at all. It doesn't hurt, so he really doesn't understand what all the fuss is about. In Boogie-World, blood on the carpet really isn't something to get excited about.

Aw well that's good!

When we went on our little trip to BC in a rental RV. The very last night I was dreaming I was dry heaving only to wake up with Shayla at the foot of the bed (It was too high for her to jump off) gagging and then GACKT..right by my feet.
I put her outside but nope, she had already emptied the contents out on the bed.

When we went back to bed she was cuddled right in into my chest like a sick kid looking for cuddles and reassurance. lol

Aww.

When my kitty had a broken leg, the vet splinted it (pretty much a popsicle stick and electrical tape) and told me to "restrict her movement."

Yeah, right. As soon as the cat realized she could put weight on the leg without it hurting, she was scampering (in a cute limpy sort of way) all over the place. I was concerned that this might be bad for healing, so called the vet. Vet diagnosed the cat as being "feisty," and told me not to worry about it.

Aww... glad he's feeling better. It's terrible when pets or kids are sick.
