Batman 2

I just thought I'd share this. No, they're not really friends but Batman absolutely idolises Panucci and won't leave him alone.

Just after my last post Batman managed to "do something" to his front left paw. No-one saw it happen or is owning up to squashing him. He couldn't put any pressure on it and it was very swollen. This necessitated a trip to the vet. No. Of course he wasn't insured.

The vet wanted £300 to perform an X-Ray!! No way José. This in turn could have led to several thousands of pounds to repair a broken leg. I am coming back as a vet in my next life.

We went for the cheaper option, although how they justify £90 for antibiotics, paracetamol and ibuprofen will still remain one of life's mysteries to me.

Thank goodness it worked. She thinks he'd fractured the metatarsals (hope I've got that right).

Anyway now he is fine and, as you can see, can jump up onto the ironing board.


  1. Glad you posted this - I was wondering how Batman was doing, especially with you being away for a while. Not a bad photo either - we found an all-black cat really difficult to photograph well. Good to hear the paw is healing with minimal(!!) cost.

  2. Poor little Batman! Just wants to be friends! At least Panucci is tolerating him.

  3. He is doing very well indeed Sue. I was 95% sure he was going to lose that leg.

    Foodycat, tolerating is the right word.
