50 shades of *OUCH!*

Happy Valentine's Day!  Doing anything special?  Go see a movie maybe?

Well, our 50 shades of grey cat isn't feeling too adventurous these days.  He's pulled up lame, not sure why. But we noticed him gimping around all day yesterday.  Front right paw.

He was having at it with one of his Fight Club buddies on Thursday afternoon, so I'm thinking that has something to do with it.  This particular bruiser is huge.  Big old brown and black striped cat.  I refer to him as "Beast Mode".  

"“No, Anastasia, no Xbox, no Playstation..."

Still, it seems kind of weird to have a gimpy paw from fighting.  Typical battle scars are in the form of nasty scratches or puncture wounds.

But he's not talking.

Maybe he's been getting too  much into the spirit of things?



  1. Poor kitty. Give him some extra love and he'll be back in fighting form in no time. I think I invented paperclips, or maybe it was zippers? See I've invented so many things that I've forgotten them all since other people got the credit and $. Maybe I should practice lying better too? Interesting idea to think about on a snowy day :)

    1. Paperclips and zippers! Two of your many gifts to the world.
      I think the cat will come around. Strange to see him so wimpy, though, since he's usually such a wild man.

  2. A true fighter. Give it a couple of days of laying around the house and I am sure he will be back in fighting shape. He remembers the first rule of Fight Club. You do NOT talk about Fight Club.

    1. And the second rule: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club!
      His pride probably hurts more than the foot.

  3. Just make sure it doesn't swell up. There's a possibility of puncture wounds to the paws in some scuffles. And cat saliva is basically poison, so it could abscess easily.

  4. Hope he is OK now! I am laughing at your reference...your cat is much more interesting to me than 50 shades of puke.

  5. Our special Valentine's activity was a trip to Florida. I''m reading your blog from the sunshine state right now!

    Hope your kitty feels better soon!
