Miranda's journey to Health

Bad Fall

What happened was what mom warned me would happen. But it was too much fun to stop. It be fun to knock the ceiling tiles down. Mom was not home when it happened; she was out paintballing. She likes to shoot people-Sean mostly. Anyway, back to the issue.

She came home to find a ceiling tile out in the basement. That has happened before. But - it wasn't on the floor, it was twisted sidewards in the gridwork. And, on the floor shattered was an old cabbagepatch lamp that had been on the bookshelf (so long to Mom's ebay listing!). Pretty obvious that I had fallen through the ceiling tile, hit the bookshelf and me and the lamp hit the floor. Mom and dad started looking for me. I finally came out from behind the shelves in the workshop (where I go when I am upset). Limping a little on my front left leg (the weak one). No outside injury, but some swelling and I am licking it a lot. Nothing to do but try to keep me quiet for awhile. Both Dad and Steph are off work tomorrow and can keep an eye on me. Pretty sure I will be okay and mom hopes I learned something.

I once took a big big jump that was about 12 feet and landed a few feet away. I was limping for a bit and sore. Now I don't decide I'm Supercat that way . I hope you'll feel better. Remember to go to the vet if you're still hurting...esdpeically since you had a hurt leg.

Oh Miranda, we are purring for you. Maybe it would be a good idea to stay out of the ceiling from now on.

I am feeling better today. Walking fine, but staying out of the ceiling (for now!). Licking my leg a lot, so Mom knows it bothers me a little. May go see vet tomorrow. Thanks for the purrs, pretty sure I am okay.

Everything as good as can be. Because my bones be in pieces that sit against each other, when I fell they kinda bumped and made my leg hurt. The ligaments and muscles held them all in place because those are strong. Vet say I just be sore a few days. He told me not to do that again - then gave me a treat!
