Voi voi. This is not a good time. Poor Aila-sisko. Yes, I know I am being nice to a girl-cat, but she is a big part of perheni and even if she has stinky breath and looks at us, she does not deserve what has happened to her. Äiti took her to ystävämme eläinlääkäri and she has a big bite in the shape of Tuomo-veli's teeth (this is not nice and we are all very fed up with him for this), but the worst news..... she has TWO LUXATING PATELLAS. When Tuomo-veli was being mean Äiti saw her slip (soon after this Stran-veli joined the fight to try to stop Tuomo-veli: he is such a hero cat, Stran), but somehow the damage was done. Tuomo-veli needs to calm down. It is okay playing with a big strong kollikissa like me, but Aila-sisko is a little weaker.
Äiti is of course upset; I am upset because I know how nasty naughty kneecaps can be, and Aila-sisko has two of them. I will try to comfort her but it will not be easy as she is in a bad mood. She must be like Maggie May and all positive and playful! And Äiti is not too happy because Aila-sisko was so upset she had an 'accident' in the car so the passenger seat doesn't smell so good. And Äiti has had a hard week with lots of nasty test results herself and she has to start eating very carefully.
Voi ei. We need some good luck !

Sending you all lots and lots of luck. Also sending sweet Aila-sisko lots and lots of healing vibes for her double naughty patellas! Luxating patellas seem so rare in kitties, but to have two kitties with them in one house! Goodness! Will she require surgery or will they heal on their own? We sure hope she gets better very very soon!!! (((hugs)))

Thank you Maggie May! We are waiting for the bite to go down and then will see how she is walking. It is likely she will have surgery but our vet will do one leg at a time - not like you had!!!!
It is unbelievable to have two cats in the same house with the problem, as it is so rare. The vet couldn't believe it herself. The phrase 'bad luck' doesn't even come close.
Thank you for your hugs and good wishes - we are sending you many nose nuzzles from here.

Oh no! I think next it would be your turn to get some good luck for a change! I'm so sorry to hear that Aila's legs were injured THAT bad :( We all hope that Aila will get better soon and doesn't have to have that surgery!
