I Have Become the Proud Parent of a…


After nights of cat fights in the garden, one of our "garden" cats got bitten on the foot  several times. The poor thing's foot got swollen and it was limping. I kept it overnight indoors to see if it improved, but it didn't. I decided to take it to the vet and was told it got bitten 4 times, foot was swollen with pus and he had to be sedated for the cleaning procedure.

All went well and it needs to recover for some time indoors. My parents and myself have become even more fond of him (I was the only true cat lover in the household) that he just might end up staying in (still very traumatized, can't even see other cats at the door!). We have been calling him "filhinho" ("little son" in Portuguese).
