Weird Stuff Going On - Purrs Needed!

Wednesday should be Gingersday, but weird stuff has been going on here. Yesterday my humans both got up and went off to work as usual. My mum goes to work at her school, which is only about 15 mins from our house, and my dad gets the train to work in central London. I was doing my normal weekday routine of napping, snacking, bathing and looking out of the window to check for Evil Intruder Kitties, not expecting my mum to get back from work till about 5 p.m., but then weird stuff happened!

First my dad arrived home much too early at about 2.30 p.m., and he hardly stopped to talk to me before he got the car and went off again. Then about an hour later he came back in the car with my mum, but she had this weird white plaster cast all down her left leg, and was using these scary metal sticks to walk! I ran away from those clomping metal sticks straight away. Then when she wanted to go upstairs she had to crawl up on her bottom, which seemed to be a big effort. Then she went to bed and didn't get up again until this morning.

Apparently she was at school and her class had just gone off to the hall to have lunch. She decided to hang their artwork from the ceiling and - stupid mum! - she stood on one of the classroom tables to do it. When she went to step down from the table on to a chair, the chair tipped over and she fell down on the floor with her leg stuck in the chair legs. Then she found she couldn't get up again and she had to call one of her colleagues who was walking past the door. Twenty minutes later she was on her way to hospital in an ambulance! Silly mum broke her leg! Now she is fed up because she has to drag this heavy plaster cast round. She has to go back tomorrow to have a CAT scan (wonder what sort of kitty that is?) I have done some purring on her already, but I think this broken leg thingy could go on for some weeks, I may need extra help from my friends to maintain a 24-hour purring rota!

P.S. I suppose I should look on the bright side - dad gets to do all the cat feeding and the litter box cleaning, and mum will be off work for weeks so think of all that extra mum-time I will get, and all that extra lap time!

Oh your poor Mum!!! It must have been so scarey for you seeing her with those metal sticks and her leg covered in plaster. But looking on the bright side, she is yours 24/7 now!

Purrs to your Mum!
Aw, Eric, yur poor mum! And poor you! I mean, what dad knows how to propurrly feed da cat? I wish yur mum was home fur a better reason. Don't let her get dopted by that scannin CAT! We'll help you provide furr an purr therapy 24/7. We's hear anytime, dude!

Oh the horror! It just sounds horrible with the description of falling off the table with her leg stuck in a chair.
Of course you can count on us to take shifts for the healing purrs!
We hope when the cat scans her all goes well. Those hospital cats are smart ones!
Oh, no, Poor Eric and Mum!
We are purring and praying for her and you.
Mum says she nearly went nuts with the itching as her broken wrist healed 2 winters ago.
Tell Mum she needs to sit in the beautiful garden with you and drink many cups of tea!
Mom saw it on Facebook and told us all about it, Eric! We think you'll be getting some extra Mom time for sure. We are purring for a speedy recovery and a normal CT scan.
Oh Eric, we are so sorry that your mom has a hurty leg. We will purr and purr for her. We are glad you are getting extra mum time, but there had to be a better way to get it.

Tavi, Cody, Camie, Miss Jade and Gracie
Oh NO! Please know that we are purring for you Mom - that must be terrible!
Oh noes! What a terrible, scairty thing to happen. I hope your mom's leg is not too terribly hurty. I am sending her my very, very best purrs.
Oh, no! We are purring and tail wagging for your poor mom. She must be glad to have your company at a time such as this. Just be sure to stay off the steps when she's walking up the stairs backwards on her butt. She could sit on you.

Oh, and be nice to your dad too.
We posted some purrs on yesterday's post for your Mum as soon as we saw about her poor leg. So here we are sending some more. Oliver thinks it's not all bad because your Mum won't be able to move fast if you want to get in some hard core schlurping action.

Oh no! We're sorry to hear about your Mom's leg. When our Dad broke his leg almost 4 years ago, it took him a long time to recover.

You'd better rest up, Eric. You've got a lot of nursing duties ahead of you.
Oh goodness Eric! We are sending tons of purrs and tons of purrayers to you and your Mum! Give her lots of hugs from us, ok?

Luf, Us
Oh my gosh! I am SO sorry! That's the LAST time I climb up onto a classroom table. EVER!
Rest up Eric - you're in for lots of purrrrrrring! Get well soon Mom!
Poor Eric's mum! Sounds especially difficult getting upstairs. All three of us will send purrs to your mum so she will heal speedily.

Perhaps she should keep some cat food and treats up by her bedroom so incase while your dad is at work you should get hungry she could give you a bit.
Oh dear! Give your human lots of purrs and hope she gets better soon!
