Walter Crash Update!

I wanted to give everyone an update on Walter (the BBC shop cat) after his crash with the bicycle on Saturday morning. He is resting comfortably at our house in Homewood and appears to be on the mend. He ended up with two sutures just above his left eye and bunch of bruises. The awesome vet at Oxmore Animal Clinic said that the wound on his head was quite deep and he is lucky he didn’t lose his eye. She had to sedate Walter while stitching him up and gave him a through physical examination for broken bones etc…and it looks like he lucked out and is just all bruised up. He is noticeably tender but he is not limping. The area around his eye was quite swollen and painful looking yesterday (Sunday) but the swelling has gone down overnight and looks a little better. Overall he is a tough and extra luck cat that probably used up one of his nine lives.
I want to say thanks to all the folks that helped out and took care of him after his crash. It was your quick action that keep him from getting hurt worse. I plan to bring Walter back to the shop after he gets his stitches out and gets clean bill of health from the vet.

He tangled with the bike on Saturday the 6th in the morning as a group was getting prepped to head out...a freak accident really!

Poor little guy. I'll have to stop by and let him cuddle in my lap again.
