Little Willie got hit by a car 3 weeks ago. He broke his back leg, and TONS of scrapes and yucky stuff everywhere.
We had him trapped in one of the kids rooms all this time so he wouldn't walk too much.
Just yesterday we allowed him to come downstairs to see how he would do. He's so timid now, noises really make him nervous. But, he runs down stairs with the three good legs and then uses the fourth leg when walking.
The bad part is that Annabelle, our other cat, who used to BE the prey, is now the predator. And, she's really mean and doesn't want Willie around at all.
Cats will be cats! But not outside! Not anymore!
