Almost a year ago Sid'ious somehow managed to break his back leg and after five casts in three weeks and another three weeks of restriction, he recovered. Tuesday morning I found him outside under the tree in the backyard(after he did not come when called for breakfast) curled up as if taking a nap. But after picking him up and his growling at me I knew something was wrong. I thought he had broken his tail as he would not lift it and growled when it was touched. So yesterday morning as I was putting him in his "new" rolling carrier he managed to escape and went out the cat door. (I had just opened it for Exeter) Several hours later he reappeared and had a bite to eat then just lay in one of his spots. This morning I got him into the carrier and off we went to the Dr. Good news; his tail is not broken. Bad news; he has an abcess. I am waiting to pick him up after his little surgery. I've already told the Wizard that Sid'ious is grounded from June thru September. Teenage Sith Lords are demons.
