I noticed recently that Finney’s right front paw had collapsed, and it looks like he’s walking on … what seems like the equivalent of an elbow. I thought, ‘Jesus, am I the worse cat owner ever and I completely missed that he broke his leg or something??’ I googled it and it turns out this could be a symptom of diabetes, which Finney was diagnosed with last year. My vet confirmed this possibility, and if he doesn’t seem to be in pain and/or is limping it’s probably from the diabetes.
He doesn’t seem at all bothered by it, although his gait is a little lop-sided. PS: My floors needs sanding. And I love the bowl I got when Mobil moved to Virginia, with the Pegasus on it. I have two. I kick myself every once in a while for not grabbing more.
