January doesn't seem the luckiest month for gardening bloggers with various people falling off see-saws or impinging their shoulders. James A-S has been a brave little soldier and kindly shared a picture of his war wound with us.
The Sock has been unable to get a photograph that does full justice to her skin-tag but does have a picture of pussbaby Luka's poorly paw.
Luka ran out gleefully into the smattering of snow the other morning appearing a short time later with a tiny bit of a limp. Inspection of his paw revealed that one of his pads had been cut into quite deeply so it was off to the vets. £66 later Luka had had an anti-biotic injection and his entire leg was wrapped up in a huge bandage with a blue sock over it. He looked ridiculous. The minute we got home and he was let out of the cat basket he ran madly around in crazed circles shaking the bandaged paw in the air with all the vehemence of someone trying to flick a particularly sticky bogey off their finger. The blue sock and bandage flew off in one piece much to Luka's satisfaction and the Sock's horror. Visit number two to the vets produced the verdict that he probably wasn't going to keep a bandage on and that as it had only been there to keep the wound clean we might as well leave it to heal on its own. Had this fairly obvious idea been thought of earlier it might have saved the Sock a deal of money. Luckily my little darling is worth it.
Have you got an injury you would like to share? Blog it and you will almost certainly get some sympathy.
