No card today, but instead a progress report on Merlot - yup that gorgeous kitten I showed you the other week beside the mouse.

Unfortunately he was badly injured on Wednesday and had to be rushed to the vet.  Still don't know if he was hit by a vehicle or attacked by an animal, but his injuries were extensive - to horrid to share.

Anyway he was in the vets till Fri and as he was managing to eat they let him home.  He has to go back this coming week to be assessed.

He has nasty facial injuries, a horrendous eye and a squint jaw.  He now goes about dribbling and with his tongue out so goodness knows what's wrong.  Hopefully as the swelling goes down some of the above will correct, just have to wait and see.  Our main concern however is his left eye, it is considerably calmer, but unfortunately he hasn't seen through it since the accident and it's not looking as it should.  Fingers crossed my little kitten makes a full recovery.  Rest is a great healer and he's getting plenty of that along with much love.

Oh dreadful!! Poor little mite, so sorry to hear this terrible news. I wish him a really speedy recovery and hope that (as you say) things will correct as the swelling reduces. Keep us posted xx

Oh my, so sorry to hear this. Your kitty looks so much like my Kiwi. I hope Merlot will be okay - the injuries sound terrible - this is very upsetting to me. I love cats so much. Sending prayers your way and hoping Merlot makes a full recovery.

Janice, I have tears pouring down here, poor wee mite, but if love is what Merlot needs to find the strength to recover then he couldn't be in a better place. Sending hugs and prayers to you both xx
