Wordless Wednesday: I’m Not Coming Out of Here

Not so “wordless” :

After a 20 hour work day yesterday, I was so excited to come home to Toby. But, what I wasn’t happy to see was that he was still limping and refused to come out of his crate. He was, however jumping around in his crate and pawing at me through it.

He seems better — he’s walking, putting pressure and laying on it — but I can tell he’s still not totally OK, or back to normal. My Dad said he was whining and hitting the crate really hard yesterday afternoon. He had already taken him out, so he asked if he wanted more water. Toby barked and pawed at the crate again. He opened it, and Toby headed toward the water, but then made a quick turn and tried to jump on the couch, which was covered in sun — Toby’s favorite thing.

While that’s a good sign, I realized this morning that I left his crate open last night. And, he didn’t once try to jump up on the couch and snuggle with me at all during the night — which is very unlike Toby. I think it might be time to take him to the vet very soon.

  1. If he's still not himself after a few days, I wouldn't hesitate to bring him to the vet. Always better to rule things out than to miss a diagnosis.

    Hope Toby's feeling up to snuff in no time, though.

  2. As Coco just passed her 3rd week post Patellar Luxation surgery…I am thankful every day (after watching her limp for 6 months)that 1)She was used to being 'crated' in a Siberian Husky size 'tent' when she had kittens…so to her (and every other cat in the house, hahameow) it is a safe, warm, quiet sanctuary and that has made having to crate her for a month, sooooo much easier on the both of us. We have our paws crossed for Toby!
