Well it does not seem that I will do much walking.
This morning I noticed my foot and ankle was bruised and found out the arch of my left foot has fallen which means that in truth it is broken.
I have been having always had problems with my feet turning over or turning out, even when I was a toddler learning to walk.
Just a few months ago I had turn my foot over and hurt my ankle, cracked it really but the doctors had said that the crack was close to a break that had healed wrong meaning before I had broken my foot and did not know of it and walked on it and the bones healed wrong.
Any way my doctor has said to limit my walking until my arch is healing right, he is afraid I will make my foot problems worse.
Any way I hope my dear companion does not mind the limited walks.
Well really he walks like any dog would. My companion Simon is a true joy, he loves belly rubs as well as playing fetch with his treats. He can sit on command, beg for food he’s not suppose to have and even I can not hear the phone ring he will point at it or paw at it until he has my attention.
In truth I have a harness I walk him on as I don’t wish for him getting out in the road, he has only one eye so I don’t wish for him to wonder out into the street and get hurt.
Simon is a smart cat, every time I take him in for a check up the vet and staff are amazed that a cat can be walked on a leash, they said they have seen many people ‘drag in’ cats on leashes but not a cat pull the owner into the office as though the cat is in control.
Simon is really a dog in training, he acts much like a dog only he doesn’t bark.
Simon is a rescue who my uncle had brought to me as a kitten, he had been badly beaten and in truth is only ‘half minded’,
When I first started taking care of him he had no teeth and would walk right into walls because at that time he was so beat up that he didn’t know a single thing. I guess I became his mama.
Anyway that was a few years ago, now he is as big as can be.
Simon is nearly fifteen pounds and is a fixed male cat. He is pampered though!
Lazy really, takes me a few minutes to get him into the mood for playing but I have to in order to keep him fit!
Well, I’ve cared for cats who loved going outside on a leash (back before I built an outdoor enclosure for them) but I’ve never seen a cat go for a ‘walk’ like dogs do. They always just venture around randomly, smelling things, looking at birds, trying to eat grass, etc. They would be very irritated if I were to try to ‘walk’ them (lead them in a specific direction).
