Dumplin’ the Kitten

Little Miss Dumplin’ was rough-housing with the kittens in the kitten room today, and fell. She landed funny, and I had to take her to the emergency vet.

She has a fractured rear right leg, right where the growth plate is. She got a shot of morphine which should provide pain relief for three days. We’re supposed to keep her on the down-low for a month and see what happens. It’s possible the other growth plate could compensate. Maybe she’ll have one really short leg. We won’t know until she grows up.

She’s such a brave, happy little kitten. Just look at that spotted belly!

Here’s a bonus shot from my garden this morning:
