The accident

my name is Misu. That’s short for tiramisu. I’m a black and orange tortie and have only been pouncing and purring for 8 months. I’m only a kitten and last Wednesday my life was side swiped by a horrible accident. I was romping and playing with my new kitty sister Gypsie…. She’s a three year old gray tortie.

Anyways, we found our way into the box spring while our humans were asleep and we started wrestling. Suddenly my foot got stuck and I was falling…. Something snapped and I started screaming. Gypsie tried to help but I screamed at her to stay away, that something had me and if she got too close it would get her too. The pain was excruciating and the more I tried to get free, the more it hurt. My humans were up fast and shouting and then I saw concerned eyes looking at me. I screamed and hissed to warn her. She tossed a blanket over me and tried to lift me free but I still couldn’t get loose. I heard some strange noises and a crash and suddenly there was a little less tension on my leg. I heard some ripping noises and suddenly I saw one of my humans looking at me from the top of the box spring and I saw that no creature had me, but my foot was wrapped over a spring…. Oh god I couldn’t look. She looked wild-eyed frantic and was crying…. I thought that it was hopeless.

She disappeared and returned quickly with a saw and started working on sawing through the springs. One went pretty quickly but the other was taking forever but I felt it getting looser. I couldn’t wait any longer…. I bit down on an empty ice cream container that had gotten lost under the bed and I pulled with all my might. God it hurt so bad I almost fainted but I was free, I was free! I bolted to the side of the room carrying the container with me…. I was afraid the box spring would reach out and grab me back…. Irrational I know, but I was in a state of ┬ápanic. She came to me with the carrier and said, “you’ll be safe in here”. I dropped the ice cream container and went inside dragging my leg behind me. It was over, but it was only just the beginning.
