My son came up to me today and said that Sam wanted to be held and jumped right into his arms for love. I thought that was odd because Sam isn't like that but I chalked it up to a 7 year old story and let it go. When I called to feed the cats just a bit ago, Sam comes limping into the kitchen. I think his back leg is dislocated and have an appointment at the vet for this afternoon. I asked my boys if they had any idea of what happened, because Sam likes to get up in the rafters of the basement, I thought he had fallen. After a few minutes of questioning, my son confesses that he TACKLED him. My God, I am so angry at him for his lack of consideration, the outright ignorance of this whole thing and the fact that Sam is hurt, I cannot see straight. I sent my son to his room for the rest of his life right now and I have taken this time to vent to you all because Im afraid right now I will say plenty to my son that I will regret later. I am just furious that this even happened. He KNOWS BETTER than to do anything rough with these cats and he KNOWS he is to always be easy with them. I don't know what the heck he was thinking when he did this or even why. WHY would he do such a thing??? I have plenty I would like to say to him right now, but I know once I get started I won't stop for quite some time. I feel right now the best thing to do would be to find my cats new homes because its not fair to them to have to live with such a mean little person and get hurt. This is totally unacceptable.
