    I am so glad she is recovering. I recall all the times I sat around waiting for news about some my cats who had become ill, or been badly injured in a fight with the Devil Cat next door. Thank goodness for our skilled vets !

    Dear Aby, your human mum has told us so eloquently about your injury. I wish you a speedy recovery and no more playing lamp posts with Max! You’re so lucky to have Dr Puiffe looking after you. I hope you can be patient like the rest of us for the end of your lockdown. Tell Max to behave himself and the cats not to be such scaredy cats! Love to you and Max, of course!

    Poor Aby and poor you – it would be hard at the best of times. Really hope she recovers fully.

    Oh Aby what a brave girl you are! I can’t imagine how Max would have coped in the same circumstances! When I clap for the brilliant front line workers next Thursday evening I’ll be thinking of your wonderful vet 🤗wishing you a speedy and successful recovery, hang in there mum she’s on the mend 😘

    Double lockdown for Aby. Oh, Beth my heart sunk when I read the intro to your blog. You've managed to keep your sense of humor! The biggest bandage in France! Aby's leg as a lamp post! Kitties inflate with hairy horror! You know how to take the sting out when ripping off a band aid. Poor you and Aby. That's a lot to deal with, but with a good outcome on the horizon. That embarrassed look from her in the photo made me want to cuddle her myself while assuring her that her bin bag uno legging is tre chic. Her brother and kitty siblings are just jealous that she has new clothes and they don't. Sending love, many hugs, and healing thoughts from the other side of this new world. Xxoo Patti W.

    Oh, DEAR! The shock of it all, poor dear, and for Aby, too, of course… The pups are so fortunate to have your domain and the loving care of you and Jack, and your lovely vets, as well. Hugs to each.

    Beth, I think Aby will recover wonderfully! My dog had the same thing that came on suddenly one day, had to have emergency surgery, recovered fine and then months later, got the same thing in her other back leg! Although, I have to say, Aby's bandage was way more impressive than our dogs bandage! It sounds like you have a fantastic vet available there. Be well!!

    Oh poor Aby! I wonder what in earth happened to cause that injury! Your vets sound just wonderful, and I’m so pleased she is on the mend. It must have been a very stressful time for you all, but trust Max to put things in perspective…Aby, the new pee post 😀

    Gosh, poor you, I understand the Devil Cat situation only too well. Thank you so much for your kind words about Aby. It's early days, but I'm confident that our wonderful vet will have done all he can to stabilise the joint.

    You are kind, Colin, thank you for these supportive words to Aby I shall relay them all. The cats are beginning to cope, but Max? Well, I'll have a go at telling him to behave, but you know what he's like!

    Thanks so much, it's been such a tough time for Aby. We'll know more about the prognosis next week when the stitches come out. We'll do everything we can to help her regain full mobility.

    Aby really is brave, Lally, not even a whimper when she came back dragging that leg. Max? H'm he would probably have screamed blue murder! :/ Aww, thanks for giving our vet a clap, he deserves it, they all do. And thanks for your kind words, they're much appreciated. xxxx

    Bless you, Patti, thanks so much for reading it. There has to be a bright side in these situations even if it did take Max and his lamppost shenanigans to dig it out! We are so grateful for all your love and kindness from the other side of the pond. I shall try to convince Aby that her bandage is chic, not sure she'll believe me, though! xxxx

    I know, who would have thought Aby would ever injure herself. 🙁 Thank you so much, Nancy, you know we'll do all we can to help her regain full mobility. Hugs will be dispensed with pleasure!

    Gosh, thank you so much for these heartening comments. The internal soft tissue damage was so great I have feared she might never regain full mobility. Your poor dog! How awful to have a second traumatic injury like that. It's fabulous that she fully recovered. Hah! I'll try to convince Aby about her bandage, I'm not sure she'll believe me, though. And thank you, yes, we are incredibly lucky with our vet.

    I know, Val, I keep wondering what happened. For the blow to have ruptured the ligaments at the back of the knee as well as tear her patella tendon at the front (which dislocated the kneecap), it must have been catastrophic. As you say, I'm so grateful she had the surgery quickly and is now mending. Trust Max-the-mutt, what a way to put things into perspective! 😀
