It's been a bad week for him and I have been a neko nurse.
A week ago he had a big fight with a stray cat and got a bite on his back leg. But we couldn't see the injury under his fur.
He seemed ok.
Then three days later he got quieter and quieter, and stopped eating and sometimes cried with pain if we touched his leg.
We took him to the vet and heard that the tiny bite would had become infectious inside and an abcess formed....it was all very bad.
On Thursday Popo-chan had an operation and now he is wearing a big bandage and looks like a sumo wrestler.
He is slowly moving around the house. He sleeps a lot. He eats a little....
Today I took him outside for a slow, gentle walk and he sat in the garden chair and looked at the wind blowing....
From now on I have to be very careful about letting him out at night, because that is when he may meet the big stray cats of Minami Hiragishi....from now on daytime outside playing only.
Good luck Popo-chan. Get Well Soon!
