A Trauma

With all the celebrations going on here, I haven't had much time to tell you about a very traumatic event that happened a little before my birthday party.  I was relieved to see most kitties at my party were feeling no pain and didn't notice what happened to my eye.  It was SO embarrassing!

I wouldn't let the mom photograph it
and she tried all different angles trying to get a good shot of my eye.
Thank Cod she doesn't work as a photographer, or we'd all starve!

I bopped myself in the eye.  That's all I'll say.
See how little my chin is?
I don't have any whisker humps either.
See yesterday's post.
I have an overbite too!
(Have I distracted you?)

So, it was into the PTU for me. 

Shoot!  I recognize this road. 

Uh oh, there's Yeager's Farm.
The cows must be in another pasture.
Maybe if I sing loud enough, the mom will forget where she's going.

 At this point I am protesting as loud as I can!

 Wasn't my eye bad enough?
I have to go through this too!

Please have mercy!

The Vet spilled the beans!  He said I had blunt force trauma to my cornea, but there is no scratch.  He thinks I ran into something when I was playing.  That makes me sound so clumsy!  I'm a cat!  And graceful, with lightening reflexes. 

 Then the mom starts in on HER theories!  She starts telling a story about how she was walking upstairs while I was walking on the upstairs banister when I fell off onto her head.  And she makes some smart *$$ comment about it raining cats.  Please, shoot me now!  So she thinks I could have fallen.  Just for telling that story, I won't tell her what happened.  Let it be another one of those "While I was at work" mysteries!

She is glad there wasn't any more damage than I had, and that I didn't pop my eye out of its socket.  Actually, I'm glad of that too!

I'll just hide for the time being...

Oh you poor darling! As if the injury was not suffering enough! She had to tell the vet--the VET--those humiliating and half-a$$ theories.

I'm surprised you haven't ripped her face off. Or have you? If you did, could you take a picture and post it tomorrow?

Kat and the Furrsonality gang said...

And Oui Oui - the EXACT same thing happened to Princeton! His was much bigger and more red, though. The vet said there was no scratch, but it looked like he bumped into something really hard.
We hope you heal right up, Oui Oui! We know trauma and vet stuff is not fun, not at all.

Katie and Glogirly said...

Well we're glad your eye is ok...
"Blunt Force Trauma???" What, has that Vet been watching too much CSI or Law & Order?

As for your human...NO excuse. Blabbing that nonsense story about falling to the Vet? Does she not realize this could destroy your reputation?

I think you better come up with a get even plan.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

After what you went through, Oui Oui, I don't blame you for not telling your human what really happened! I just hope it heals quickly!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Oh, you poor Baby! Thank goodness there was no scratch. We hope you come up with some nice *reward* for your Mom for saying what she said at the vet. ;)

Hannah and Lucy said...

Thank goodness your eye isn't scratched and we hope it will soon be better. Just give your Mom the back of disrespect for telling the vet all those lies about you.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Hannah and Lucy said...

Fancy your mom telling the vet you might have run into something - we cats are far too dainty and sure footed for that. We think your mom told the vet a load of porkie pies.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Hannah and Lucy said...

We can't believe this Mum typed us a comment and Google said it couldn't post it and gave some blurb - she did another comment and lo and behold the one that couldn't be printed was there!!
Bang, Bang, Bang - that's Mum hitting her head on the wall!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

Oh, we do hope your eye heals quickly--lots of purrs from us.

But...Ran into something? Or fell? That's absurd. Whatever happened, it was no doubt caused somehow by your mom, unawares!

The Island Cats said...

Oui Oui, we're sure you hurt your eye doing something great like chasing a bug or or killing a toy...not that lame story your mom came up with. Sheesh! We hope your eye gets better quickly

Cat said...

Sweet Oui Oui we are so sorry that you hurt your eye but very glad to hear your cornea is okay! We hope you will be all better soon :-)

Marg said...

We know what it is like to go to the vet. We sing all the way too. Glad your eye isn't too bad. It is worth the trip to make sure it was all right. Take care.

The Monkeys said...

Oh, we're sorry to hear about your traumatic experience, but we're so happy to hear it wasn't as bad as it looks!

Brian said...

I am just glad to know that you are okay!!!

~*Connie*~ said...

So that is why they scream.. hoping to distract me. Now that makes perfect sense!!

I'm so sorry about the BFT to your head and eye.. I hope it heals up right quick.

Layla ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Oh noes! Thankfully it wasn't worse. Sending healing purrs from our boys.

Kjelle Bus said...

Me too is very glad that your eye is OK !
I think your mom told the vet a load of porkie pies.
Typical humans !!

Tucker The Crestie said...

Oh, you poor thing! Eye trauma is no fun, and then the vet on top of that! That actually happened to Finn one time - one minute he was fine, and then the next minute his eye was all squinty. Despite its being Saturday she dragged him to the vet. He was not happy!

Ginger Jasper said...

Poor sweety to have a poorly eys. I hope it heals soon. Its an awful ordeal going to the vets and I bet you sang all the way. Get well soon. HUgs GJ xx

CCL Wendy said...

Poor Oui Oui! Maybe you did something crazy at your birthday party and you just can't remember! It seems that no real harm was done, though, so I'm awfully glad for that!

By the way, on Dante's blog I posted a whole bunch of gifs I did -- and it's all because of you! You've really started something!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

oui oui we are sure glad there is nothing serious wrong with your eye.

I am going to the vet tomorrow myself. My darned allergies are back. I Heard Mom talking to "Dr.Smiley" today planning their evil journey

ABBY said...

Oh dear me Oui Oui.
We could see how painful that must be. WE sure are glad that the Vet checked you out and said you were going to be fine.


Cory said...

It must have happened when someone was trying to break into your house while your mom was away and you bravely had to step in the path of danger and get rid of the evil introoders with one paw behind your back. Yeah that's it I'm sure.

Falling? Never.

meowmeowmans said...

Poor Oui Oui! We are so sorry that you hurted your eye, and that you had to go to the v-e-t to get it checked out. The nerve of your mom for telling the bannister story (hello? have you ever heard of TMI?! Humans ... hmmph).

Feel better soon, sweet and GRACEFUL girl. :)
