Offline For a Couple Days

Kitties, we are going to be taking a short break.  Someone locked the gate where the feral cats the mom has been taking care of live.  She walked around the fence and found a way back to the cats.  It involved a tricky embankment, brambles, vines and broken bottles.  Then she lost her footing, and fell on a rock.

This is the result.  (The sheets were washed and we were going to help the mom make the bed after she was back from visiting the ferals.  That didn't happen for obvious reasons.)

That big bump isn't her knee!

We are purring for our mom.  Maybe you have a couple purrs to spare?  And yes, she is still feeding the ferals.

Holy CRAP. Paula, are you OK? Ice that and keep it elevated...and go to Urgent Care if you have any numbness AT ALL. I'll get the cats revved up and on a purring roster for you!

Ouch! I'm sending lots of purrs to your human's leg... although it may need some medical attention in addition to the purrs if it doesn't improve soon!

That looks really painful! We're purring for your Mom to feel better soon, but if she doesn't, make her go to the doctor and get that looked at.

Pat Hatt said...

Ouch indeed, got a whole new leg there. Hopefully it heals quick.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Yikes! Ditto going to seek medical treatment. Do you need a tetanus or other shot/booster?

Lots and lots of healing purrs from the boys!

That looks so painful and your Mom's leg is very swollen too. We are sending our best purrs to her. If the skin is broken anywhere she ought to have a tetanus jab.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

OMC! We're sending lots of purrs that the bump goes away and that your mom feels better soon! We're very grateful for her doing what she can to feed those ferals but we don't want her to get hurt in the process!

Quinn and Angel brandi said...

Sorry, sorry! Hugs and purrs to your mommy. She is such an angel for feeding ferals she doesn't need owies.
Looks as bad as my mommies did when she tripped. Hers is still healing. Hope your mommy recovers faster!

Mariodacat said...

Oh noooo! So sorry for your mom. Here she was doing such a good deed by feeding the ferals and takes a fall instead. I'm purring for your mom to get well really quick. M says to put lots of ice on it - it will help take the swelling down, and hopefully she didn't do any permanent damage to it.
