prey drive intensifies
Good thoughts for Vanyel (cat) please
It seems like everything happens at once. My sisters and mother have Four Kitties, Gaudiur a ten year old siamese mix, and Parnell, Vanyel, and Merill, 5 year old littermates, all boys. All the cats are indoors, but Vanyel a fervent adventurer is always attempting to escape and run around outside. 3 years ago he got out and was attacked by a dog resulting in a huge gash on his should which required several stiches and drains.
Last week he got out agian and was gone for several days when they finally caught him saturday evening they noticed he was was not using his back left leg. He was brought into the vet today and after an x-ray the conclusion is that he has a pelvic fracture. Unfortunatly the next vet who can do surgery for this kind of injury is in another city and not easily accesable to them. However since the break is clean the vet thinks if he is closely confined and kept from all strenuos activities that it will heal fine on it's own. So the poor cat is stuck in a large dog crate for the next month or so. For the next couple weeks he'll be on painkillers but after that I'm thinking he's gonna get frustrated and restless. So please good thoughts for him that his leg will heal nicely, and that he will be able to cope with his confinenment, and perhaps that he won't escape agian to go on adventures.

I'm sorry to hear about Vanyel's misfortune. My cat, Jewel Kitty, is also 5 years old (I adopted her from the Humane Society when she was 6 months). I know that if she ever got out and got hurt I would be completely beside myself. I'll be sending good thoughts your way for a speedy recovery. Good luck.

Wendy, How do you keep your Basenji off of your cat?
I don't know about Wendy but my Kiora LOVE cats. She is aloof to dogs, and indifferent to people. But she gets so happy to see a kitty. She thinks she IS a kitty. Vanyel is doing great he seems to have made a full recovery. and is back to trying to do things he's not suppossed to.
I so hope he heals up soon.
