PreciousPussGirl has decided she likes to be held while sitting on your knee. I am loving this turn of events.

Currently enjoying Sunday Snuggles smile

Yep, Sunday Snuggles here too.

She's not happy though as she has a fractured pelvis. So she is literally on 'bed rest'.

No catching bunnies or mice for a while and she's hating it sad

Poor baby! sad

Sunday afternoon snooze with a cuddlesome cat - there's very little to beat it. smile

Lord of the manor is in his favourite spot, we are all poorly today so cuddles are very welcome.

cozietoesie Sun 23-Oct-16 13:09:14

I just have to say 'Snooze' to my boys and they're heading up the stairs. (That's if they're not already in bed, waiting impatiently. grin)

Maudlinmaud Sun 23-Oct-16 13:12:39

Thats unreal cozie!
I like to think mine can understand me too, they definitley know the word dreamies.
I love cats smile

cozietoesie Sun 23-Oct-16 13:16:39

Siamese. Large vocabulary. wink

They don't necessarily watch you quite as intently as a dog (we have collies from working stock) because they're a bit too self-centred - but they do understand things. smile

Mine has taken rather a liking to eldest DS bed!

Maudlinmaud Sun 23-Oct-16 13:29:25

That boy of mine is almost 14 and comes on walks with me and the dog. This will out me but he waits outside the local shop for me when I go in. He is bloody brillant.

cozietoesie Sun 23-Oct-16 13:32:50

Hah! The Lodger used to come into local small shops when I was there. grin We used to sneak out of the house - but it never seemed to work.

Fatty asleep on MY favourite cushion and Snorgmaiden asleep and snoring in her new bed! Fatty is taking up 3/4 of the sofa!

Maudlinmaud Sun 23-Oct-16 19:59:24

Oooh I like your cat basket.

Fluffycloudland77 Sun 23-Oct-16 20:04:37

We had milk paddling on my chest this morning under the covers. It really hurt but he's not well so I took the pain.

No How did your poor girl fracture her pelvis?

Toddlerteaplease Sun 23-Oct-16 22:43:30

Maud, only got it yesterday from a cat show. Her sister has also taken a shine to it, which is unusual for her as she likes her/ my green cushion. She now has a custom made cushion on order. And I am now broke! It's from a company called Lazy Days pet beds.

NoIsAnAnswer Mon 24-Oct-16 09:06:26

We don't know fluffy. She goes in farmers fields with horses most of the time so we have no idea how she's done it. I'd have though a horse kick would be fatal for her but we just don't know what's happened.

She's still in the same position as 24 hours ago sadat the bottom of my bed!

cozietoesie Mon 24-Oct-16 09:40:08

Have you tried lifting her out and taking her to her tray/feeding station? She might be getting a wee bit desperate by now if she hasn't moved so far.

NoIsAnAnswer Mon 24-Oct-16 09:43:20

Yes I carry her to the litter tray and food / water bowl every few hours. Then I carry her back to bed where she stays thlsad .

Think she's just feeling very sorry for herself. She won't play with anything but will happily sit there and be brushed and cuddled. She's just a sad puss at the mo.

cozietoesie Mon 24-Oct-16 10:05:38

Poor lass.

Is she on pain meds for her fracture?

NoIsAnAnswer Mon 24-Oct-16 10:08:08

She is. But it's only a once a day dose so it doesn't seem a lot / enough to me. The fracture went through a joint so vet said said she'd get arthritis when she's older which is sad. But she's only 2 so I'm hoping she heals quickly and gets back out there.

cozietoesie Mon 24-Oct-16 10:19:22

Odds are that she'd develop arthritis anyway if she reached an appropriate age - a huge majority of cats do to one degree or the other. (My own boy has severe arthritis now but then he's most elderly.)

You could always give the vet a buzz and have a quick word about her meds. Maybe they're not happy to supplement them for a short period - but maybe they are. The only other thing I can suggest is to give her a good heat source to comfort her towards sleep.I'd switch on the electric blanket in the day - if you have one - or consider a snuggled up hottie. She's a young cat so recovery shouldn't be too long.

Toddlerteaplease Mon 24-Oct-16 10:52:16

We had a cat that had a fractured pelvis as a youngster and had it played she died aged 18 and never had arthritis. So fingers crossed.

NoIsAnAnswer Mon 24-Oct-16 12:13:18

Thank you toddler. We hope so too!

NoIsAnAnswer Mon 24-Oct-16 12:14:26

The vet said we could split the dose cozie so we'll give one in the morning and one at night. Thanks for the suggestion!
