Seven Years Ago Today

Seven years ago today, I was a feral kitty, and I got hit by a car. As you can see my leg was broken and my hip was dislocated. It hurt bad, and I couldn't move. I was terrified, stuck in the middle of the street with cars zooming past.

Bast must have been watching out for me, because somebody [Malcolm] picked me up and saved my life.

The rest is history. My leg got fixed and cat lovers around the world helped by sending green papers to pay for my bionic leg.

 Life is funny, and like Mom says, the world changes every day. That was a very bad day, and it became a very good day.

 I did not like being held. Some things never change.

It's always upsetting to see those x-rays Millie and to imagine how much pain you felt and how frightened you must have been. I'm so glad that your story turned out the way it did.

We love that you got through the leg thing Millie! TBT says a "cat who came before" had the same thing when she was (bizarrely) in the bottom of the refrig thing when it was being pulled out for replacement in the apartment. TBT was horrified and all guiltified. It took him months to pay the vet for the operation. He was dead broke at the time. This was WAY before the CB.

Man, I will never forget that! The Woman was all OOOOH PRETTY KITTY MUST BE SAVED and she thought Malcom was a huge fricking's just the kinda guy he is, I think. I'll always be grateful he stopped to get you. Most other people woulda just gone right by.

OH my goodness! What an ordeal! We're glad you got saved!
We've only been around a few years and do not know your story. We tried to find it, but no luck. Perhaps some day you can put it all down somewhere we can read it?

I was a ferral cat and hated to be held too. I am 6 years old and have given up...I love to be held now but it took a lot of pestering by my Mom. I still hiss at stranges though. I am not quitting that...It is my job!
