Harrowing on Halloween

It was a harrowing day on Halloween for EJ. 

While bathing Tanya yesterday, EJ felt something sharp on Tanya's right hock joint. Definitely a matter that needed immediate close inspection. A wet soapy cat is not exactly a happy cat and will never cooperate. EJ was surprised to see the cause.

After Tanya was fan-dried which took several hours, EJ phoned the vet to make an appointment for this morning.

On the examination table, Tanya's vet confirmed it is the metal wire that held the metal rod in place to help mend Tanya's broken leg sustained in 2004.

The red arrow shows where one end of the metal wire pierced through the skin.

A closer view.

Tanya is now scheduled to have this wire removed on Tuesday morning. This will be Tanya's fourth surgery on her broken leg and facial injury. EJ will post her three earlier surgeries soon.

Poor Tanya, and she didn't even complain. If you hadn't been bathing her, you might never have known, EJ. Well, I sure hope the surgery goes well and she recovers quickly. Hugs to both of you.
