Lazarus?

We are considering renaming Mr Ratty Mr Lazarus.

This morning when Marius got up, Ratty's bed was empty:



we looked behind the curtains and under the bed, but then Marius spotted him:




Ratty is recovering from a serious 'cranial trauma'  (nasty bump on the head) and his hind paws are not back to normal.  Yesterday he could sit himself upright unaided:



but how did he get to the bears?   I watched him do it the second time.  (Sorry no photos).  He sits himself up and can manage to raise his backside off the floor long enough and high enough to take a few shuffling steps, then sits down again.  Repeat.  I am not quite sure why the teddies were so appealing ...



He must be getting better because now Mr Macc is very suspicious and has been heard to growl at the resurgent Ratty:



While Miss Beowulf has been talking to Ratty and keeps inviting him to play:




Marius says he's sure Ratty will be on his feet and walking normally by the week's end.  We've made an appointment to see the Vet on Saturday to discuss his progress and his 'snip' op.

Please don't uncross paws, whiskers, toes etc, yet.

Oh yes you must rename him - Ratty seems entirely inappropiate now!

Lazarus would be an excellent name for such a determined little cat. So pleased to hear his progress but still keeping everything crossed:-)

Has it ever occurred to you that Ratty might have magical healing powers? :) Glad to see he is doing so well!
