on thursday my partner came home from work and pepe ran up to him squawking his head off. he was limping too. we tried to have a look at his leg but he wouldnt let us. we suspect he might of fallen off the roof or a very slim chance the neighbours might have hurt him somehow. so off to the vet we go. we thought he probably just sprained himself. the vet had a look at him and thought it would probably be a dislocation at first. the kept him overnight and did x rays. well, turned out that he had actually broken his leg! he had snapped the ball off of his thighbone. they told us the operation would cost $1200. basically they remove the ball that has fractured and just leave it. the muscle ends up taking over and you cant even tell if part of their bone is missing unless they end up with a small limp. they said there was a very high chance he would have the same quality of life before and that he would be able to be let outside again. so we agreed to go ahead with the operation. pepe is home now and is walking about, although confined to a room. he is a bit upset that pheobe is rejecting him after his vet visit but she will get over it. i cant believe i have spent that much money on a cat i dont like :lol: i couldnt bear to put him down for no good reason though. but yes, that was my/pepe's weekend! he better not do anything silly again. he needs to realise hes not as agile and graceful as he thinks he is, hes just a big goof.
