This picture illustrates exactly why I don’t dress up Sumi for the holidays. I’m certain she would kill me in my sleep as punishment.

Sunday morning, Sumi-e was chased around the courtyard by the neighbor’s dog. She tried to climb a brick wall to escape to a window sill only to fall into a bush. She finally ran under a parked car and up into the engine area. After many minutes she came out and was limping badly and all of her claws were torn or missing.

We took her to the emergency animal hospital and the attending vet said that no bones were broken but she probably sprained the knee joint or, at worst, torn the ligament. We were given pain meds for 5 days and told to watch her for 3 days and if there was no improvement to take her to her usual doctor for a further exam.

Today, she’s markedly better and we think it’s just a sprain – whew!

She been avoiding us for the most part but yesterday she did come out to lay in a strong sunbeam. Weird thing is that she’s lying on the injured leg. Perhaps to protect it?

So what kind of blog will this be? Fun and chatty or sad and complaining. I will try to let this one develop organically and see where it takes me.

And the golden green eyes of Sumi-e will watch over me.
