My Poor Tail

Mine Mom broked my tail yesterday.
I asked her politely, "Mom, may I please go out on the upstairs deck and see what I can see?" Now, of course, I didn't just run fast out there, I had to take my time and 'spect everything and make sure I didn't step on anything unworldly. Well, I guess she was so wrapped up in her computer she didn't see I was 'vestigating and just slammed this huge, heavy, big, solid, metal door.....right on mine little calico tail. I screamed! I cried! I yowled! She opened the door real fast and I came running in, tail bent over, broked. She was all, "oh no, Patches, I am so sorry," and ran fast after me. I ran faster, down the stairs, tail all broked, it had a big bend in it.

Yes, Mom, I am ignoring you!

    OMG, how awful!!! I don't think I've ever had any tail mishaps but this looks absolutely horrible!!

    Are you better now?

    Revenge is a dish best served tuna, I'd imagine.

    May I suggest sharpening your claws on her shins? Moms are very prone to "accidents" and "making mistakes."

    Ugh! If only we didn't need them to open doors!

    Every now and then I get under Chloe's feet and she has stepped on my tail. It hurts so much! I hope your tail gets better!

    Poor Patches!!! I cannot imagine such a thing happening to my own glorious tail! I'm with Kukka-Maria: revenge is called for...

    Oy! That is WRONG! Did the vet get to take a look at it?

    Oh poor Patches! I bet your mommy must feel really bad. My momma told me that long ago they had a persian kitty and she was outside most of the time and some mean person stuck a clothespin on her tail and the little kitty hid from her family for a couple days and when she came back they discovered the clothes pin and the end of her tail died. Thankfully she was ok and wasn't traumatized for life but she had a funky looking tail. =) I don't have much of a tail my momma says mine musta been docked when I was a baby.

    Oh no :( Poor Patches! I hope it heals up fast so it don't hurt. Poor Patches's mommy to cuz I bet she feels real bad. Aw, I'm gonna cry. Poor Patches.

    Oh Patches, that is horrible! Your poor tail, has the v-e-t had a look at it? Does it still hurt? Make sure you make the most of being an invalid and lie around looking pathetic while your humans feed you delicious treats. Get well soon.
  • Blogger PrincessMia posted at 10:18 AM  
    Oh Patches!! Your poor tail!!! oh that's terrible. It is still hurtin? Is it really broke? are you gonna have to put it in a cast. Oh the felinity!
  • Blogger The Meezers posted at 11:29 AM  
    OMG! Did you have to go to the V-E-T? Does it still hurt? We are soo sorry!
  • Blogger Finnegan & Buddy posted at 11:45 AM  
    Miss Patches! Miss Patches! Your pore pore tale!!! I never herd of anything so awful. YOu be sure and look extra pathetic around yore mom bean and especially when she is walking around, act like you are verry scared of her.

    We hope your tail is better soon!

    PS from mom bean - Patches, I'm sure your mom didn't mean to do that and is very sorry.
  • Blogger George, Tipper, Max & Misty posted at 12:22 PM  
    How very, very awful. You must definitely become a pathetic invalid to be waited on hand & foot. Milk this for all you can. Make sure she feels extra sorry for what she's done and keep glancing down at your poor tail while giving pitiful, kittenlike mews.

    Keep us informed on the tail straightening/healing status.
  • Blogger Bonnie Underfoot posted at 12:26 PM  
    How awful! I don't know what I'd do, besides bite, scratch, and run away. I might hide under the bed and growl. I'd certainly keep my tail to myself for awhile.
  • Anonymous Athena posted at 1:12 PM  
    That's so terrible! I am sorry that happened to you. I hope it heals quickly and doesn't hurt too bad. Maybe some good nip would numb the pain.

    My mama read that over my shoulder and went white as a sheet. She said I bet Patches' mama feels real bad! I thought, time for some strategic upchucking.

    Poor, poor baby Patches!!! That's okay. Your mom will be your constant servant for many, many days. Let's see ... tuna, salmon, stinky goodness (at all hours, day and night). Get well quick.
  • Blogger Knightly, Lizzie, & Firenze posted at 2:02 PM  
    Patches, we hope that your tail heals quickly. The Crew is right and you should milk it for all it's worth. There should be lots of treats, stinky goodness, and head rubs.

    Mom closed a window on my tail once and I bit her. She tried to get me off of the window sill but I kept jumping back up and when she closed the window, my tail was there. She still has the scars.

    Patches, that's terrible! I hope it only hurt for a little while, and that your human is trying to make it up to you with lots of treets and stinky goodness galore.

    Whoa, good thing I have a little fluffy tail. AND we're so sorry we missed the nap-a-thon. DKM is such a dork and took the laptop away with her again.
  • Blogger Boni posted at 7:39 PM  
    Eeek! Poor Patches and poor tail and poor Mom. I'll say purrayers for your tail to heal up fast. I hope it doesn't hurt too much. Can I help out somehow? (I don't know how to remove big doors, sorry.)
  • Anonymous Beau posted at 8:04 PM  
    Ooooh...we're so sorry. I hope you let someone bandage it so it will heal properly. We're sorry we missed your nap-a-thon. We didn't know about it until it was over. Hope your tail gets better soon! We'll say a prayer for you.
  • Blogger Max posted at 8:24 PM  
    OW OW OW OW!!!

    Ok, the Woman heard e yell OW and came to see,,,she says her Mom had a kitty once that she slammed a car door on its tail! And for the rest of that kitty's life everytime her Mom made the kitty mad, she would put her tail up looking like a question mark. And her Mom felt guily every single time. So do that! Forever and ever, remind her! I bet you get lots of treats out of it!

    AAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH. Mum gotted home very late tonight. So I am doing a quick blog check.

    Take care, milk this for all you can, tuna, treats etc. I am just glad this happened after the nap-a-thon. Your poor tail migghted not have survived all the chasing last weekend.

    Mum has lightly stepped on mine but never slammed the door on it. But then I don't get to go outside.

    Hugs and kisses.
