So, I've technically failed the #BEDN challenge, as I didn't post yesterday, but I have a seriously valid reason;
On Saturday night, around 8:30pm, my beautiful little Bengal came into the house with a chewed up tail, wet to the bone from the rain and a bloody mouth. It was one of, if not thee, worst experiences of my life. I wrapped him up in a towel and we rushed him to the emergency vets where he was operated on. He had to have his tail (bar 2 inches) amputated and wire stitches in his mouth to hold the bottom of his jaw together. We still have no idea what happened, but to me, it looks like he's had a run in with a dog. There is an Akita a few doors down from us that has already attacked one cat, so whether that is what has happened, we're never going to know.
He came home yesterday about 1pm and he is a completely different cat. He jumps at every noise, he is silent, he stares into space and picking him up is like picking up a rag doll. It's like he's in a trance. I'm really hoping that over the next few days I can coax him out of this shell he's put himself in and bring back the naughty kitten I had before.
So as you can imagine, yesterday I had no time to blog whatsoever. I have some time today whilst at University, so hopefully I can schedule a few over the next couple of days. But seeing as I go to Edinburgh on Thursday until Sunday, I want to spend every possible second with my boy.
I know some of you will think, 'oh he's just a cat' but he is my world and I love him with all my heart.
