I feel like a terrible cat mom again tonight. Tucker has a bad habit of being or sitting near doorways. I was going to the bathroom and, while shutting the door, he turned around and I shut his tail in the door! He ran away, his tail hanging at a funny angle. I immediately called the vet and rushed him there (crying all the way).
The bad news is that it's broken (about 1 1/2" from the end). The good news is that there is no skin or surface damage, so it will heal on its own. The vet wrapped his tail and sent us home with a few days of pain medication. Below is a photo of him and his wrapped tail-io.
He has already yanked off the bandage, which the vet said he might do. We will monitor him closely and give him pain medication for a few days. While I feel terribly about this, it could have been much worse (as in, partial tail amputation!).Needless to say, I won't be shutting any doors tightly for a while.

While Benny wants nothing to do with Lucy, he sure enjoys sitting in Jim or I's lap for a cuddle.
Happy Easter to all who celebrate it. I present this years eggs, dyed using mens' ties.
