Glad she’s on the mend!Some of you may recall that one of our cats had a back leg amputated a couple of years back after being attacked by a dog.
She's the sweetest thing, and still surprisingly nimble and active for a tripod.
A couple of days ago, after being out for a few hours, she turned up home basically dragging her a$$ across the ground.
We freaked out a bit, because if she significantly/permanently damages any of her remaining legs then it's game over for her. I often joke about getting creative with a roller-skate and a bungy cord, but...
Anyway, a quick trip to the vets later, it turns out she has an infected toe/claw on her back foot, pretty nasty and she was running a temperature but after pain-relief and antibiotic injections, now she's getting back to normal.
The relief for all of us is huge. I saw her sitting up on top of our 6-foot high wooden fence today, so it's obviously healing nicely. She's also very fond of the couch:

She's spent so much time at the vets over the years that she knows the place well, and always gives me a look that I'm convinced means "...you've brought me to that place where they shove things up my a$$ again, haven't you?..."
Smooshy, indeed - our foster cat Bogart fits the bill.This is the coolest thread I've read in a long time.
I have a soft spot for cats; we have three.
The video in the OP made me laugh at first, but all those cats look distressed to the point of mistreatment. The lady on the couch hit the cat several times, which is plain wrong. You don't treat an animal like that. Our three have never once attacked anyone in our home, they're just smooshy teddy bears.
