Toby's Diary

Purrs requested for a cautionary tail

My mum came home yesterday and asked Josie and me to purr for a cat called Ricky. Poor Ricky had an accident at the weekend.

Like us they had all their doors and windows open for the sunny day and were enjoying the breeze that got up later on. Unlike us they don't have something by every door to stop it slamming. You'll see where this is going.

Poor Ricky has lost the last two inches of his tail as the wind grabbed the door just as he was going through and slammed on him. He went straight to the emergency vet who kept him in and operated and he came home yesterday. It was a very clean break and he is expected to be fine but your purrs would be appreciated.

And remind your mums and dads that even inside doors can get shut suddenly by the wind when you don't expect it. My mum says Ricky will be all better long before his mum gets over feeling guilty about it.

We are all fine except I am grumpy with my mum. A Cat so honoured to be a Diary Pick of the Day should be allowed to eat from all household dishes but she saw me about to jump on Josies's and pushed me away. Lucky for me Josie saw sense and left the rest of her food for when mum wasn't looking. I have her well-trained.

Awwww poor Ricky. We are purring that he'll feel all better very quickly. That is a good reminder about putting something in the doors to prevent them to shut on us little guys.

Congrats on being a diary pick mate. Sounds like your mate Ricky has been in the wars sending purrs his way that his tail fully heals. I've had near misses with doors getting my tail but never anything like Ricky has had.

Ohhhhhhhh, poor Ricky! He has been through quite an ordeal. I am purraying for him to heal quickly. I am so sorry that he has lost a full two inches of his tail. We kitties think of our tails as magnificent, so this must be quite a shock fur him to see it shortened. Get well soon Ricky!
