Well, the good and bad news with Amber... we were up til 2 last night with frank at the vets with her and then getting her settled back in the house... they think she either got hit by a car or got her foot stuck in a tree or something... no scratches to indicate a cat fight or attack by an animal. She seems to have neurological damage to one leg and her paw just flops around. We have to keep an eye on it... and see what happens... if it doesn't improve, she may need to have that leg amputated. The good news... well... I'm not seeing much besides the obvious: yes, we don't have to keep wondering where she is and if she's ok... and she safe back hiding in my guest room... that's good. But she's not happy inside with us, she just hunkers down and hides...and gets really fat. it's no way to live. She's afraid of the dogs, Tyger doesn't want to share us with her, so he's being a stinker, he won't even let me pet him now. So I don't know what is going to happen, if she doesn't get better, she can't go back out. And if she has to stay in... well I don't know what to do to make it work this time, we tried for a year already and she never got used to the dogs and Tyger. She needs a quiet old lady to adore her or something, not my noisy family. Sigh.
So that's the scoop. I am just hoping against hope that they don't have to amputate. Such a downer, sorry.
