Cat Sitting Can Be Hazardous To Your Health & a Pet Selfie Contest

Meows from Mudpie!

I had to put my Nurse Mudpie hat on again this week. Last weekend Mommy did some cat sitting for our neighbor and on Sunday night she took a bad fall down their garage steps. She twisted her ankle so badly she was afraid to get up thinking it had to be broken. It wasn't, but it's very swollen and bruised. I told her she needs to pull out a pair of flip flops to show off her pretty purple foot!!! MOL

She says this face never fails to make her feel better, so we're entering it in the Sunday Selfies blog hop.


Speaking of selfies, our favorite store Tractor Supply Company is running a Pet Selfie Contest on their Facebook page. You can enter your sweetest, funniest or silliest selfie here for your chance to win a $50 gift card for yourself *and* your favorite animal shelter!!! But hurry...the contest ends at 11:59 PM eastern tonight!

That face would make anyone feel better. You are so precious, Mudpie. We are sorry your mommy fell and hurt herself. When our mom saw her doctor on Thursday, she told her that she is always just one step away from a accident. Sad but true. Take extra good care of Mom Melissa. Thanks for hopping and telling us about this contest. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Oh dear, Mudpie. So sorry to hear your mommy took a bad spill. Take good care of her, and I do love you in that hat!

Caren Gittleman said...

oh wow your poor Mom!! Tell her not to mess with that!!! I have sprained my ankle a few times and they say sprained ankles are worse than breaks are! If your Mom hasn't had X-rays, she may want to, especially if it is purple! Please tell your Mom to take care of herself! catchatwithcarenandcody

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! Did she go to the doctor? TW broke her ankle and walked on it all night but went to the ER the next morning. She iced and wrapped it so well, there was no swelling and the doctor didn’t think it was broken until he too xrays. MOL! She can be tough. Sending healing purrz.

Dash Kitten said...

Oh man - that sounds painful!! Get well soon!
