Sadly I didn't get to talk to the vet, but that's OK. Whomever she saw took an xray and everything looked fine, so they think that it is the soft tissue damage on her back that is throwing off her gait some how. Not really sure that is the only thing going on with her, but since her xray looked clean, I'm going with this is an issue she's just going to have to deal with, and hopefully in time as she gets used to the way her body works now (with said soft tissue damage) things will be much better.
Doesn't really explain what happened on Friday, but some of that might have been my being over protective.. (who me?? really??) I think it is best if she is adopted by someone who has carpet through out their house - which I do not.
So now I just need to connect up with this Shelley person I've been told is smitten with her and see if it is a love match..
While I was at the shelter a woman came in with a mother cat and kittens. The Spay/Neuter Clinic has a deal going on if you surrender a mother's kittens you get the mother cat spayed for free. They brought in a gaggle of little orange kittens... oh be still my heart. Sadly (for me) they were all of size to be neutered and go up for adoption, so they won't be stopping by at Casa de Gato to hang out with Happy Bear.. but I'm sure there will be someone in that room soon enough.. Although currently Charlotte is still there and lovin it.
