The vet nurses said that it does seem that Josie has a soft-tissue injury. I always knew she was soft!!
They said to keep her indoors to rest it. Josie looked at the rain which poured pretty much all day yesterday and agreed to that one. She really hates rain.
I don't mind it so much. When I'm in the thrill of the hunt I don't notice and then I go indoors and mum says, "Toby - you're drenched. I'm not stroking that soggy coat." So I have to give her the old big eyes treatment until she relents and dries me off.
The vet nurses also said if Josie is unhappy at all then to the vet she must go. Josie put on her brightest face and trotted happily across the kitchen. "See!" she said, "All good. No vet." It was a shame that she forgot that she had her paw lifted pathetically as she spoke - but the trot was a good, solid, all four paws one.
Mum thinks Josie is a little better today - she should be, she's been practising looking well. The only time a cat will agree that going to the vet is a good idea is when they are so unwell they have no idea what they are saying!

I've been thinking..... Why is Josie's paw sore? She could have hurt it jumping off the pouffee (sp?), since it's not her regular resting place. Actually it's not her place at all but it's your place.
Or her paw is not hurt at all and she's just pretending so that she can go back to the vet and talk to that dishy Dracula cat again.
Whatever it is, we are sending more
