Nothing But Trouble

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, then you may have read my many posts about Trouble the fur baby going to the vet.  My genius cat decided that, once again, he wanted to live up to the challenge that is his name and get hurt.  He sliced his femoral artery open in his rear right leg and wouldn't put weight on his front right leg after jumping out of a broken window. If he had done this nearly any other day of the week, he would have bled to death since I would've been home alone with no vehicle. However, we were desperately lucky that my mother-in-law was off work that day and was able to drive us to the vet.  Six stitches, an x-ray, and a week at the vet later and Trouble is home sweet home.

Yes, my pajama pants do have coffee
cups all over them.

The lucky bastard even gets to stay inside and sleep in our bed with us! Luckily there is no sign of infection and no broken bones!  This wasn't the first and most likely won't be the last time Trouble has gotten himself hurt.  I just hope that we keep getting lucky like this last time.


  1. Aww. Glad he is better. They can do the craziest things. Mine cut his ear on door stopper and had to get 2 stitches.

    1. They really can! My mom has a dog that has had to get stitches on TWO separate occasions because she kept running into sticks!

  2. Ouch. Too bad we can't teach them to watch out lol
