Boots' Captivity- Day 10

Boots' Captivity- Day 10

It's been 10 days since Boots' fracture required us to begin keeping him confined. At first it was hard. He cried almost constantly, but eventually he learned to accept the situation and just make himself comfortable. For a while. Fortunately, the rest he is getting does seem to be helping. He now is able to walk normally, and seems comfortable moving around. This is proving to be a problem. He now feels more like running and jumping and less like sitting in his cage. Just this morning, as I opened the door to place a fresh bowl of water there for him, he sprang over my hand, which had been holding him back, onto the sofa and off the other side within the space of about a second. I seriously hope he did not re-injure his back. I don't know how much longer any of us can take this.
