I asked a question earlier this week about three-legged animals.
In a couple hours, my fiance and I are going to meet the cat we're hoping to adopt. He was brought to the shelter with a shattered leg, and they had to amputate it (I am guessing he was hit by a car or something, but someone just found him like that so they're not sure). We haven't told my 5 year old yet, just because we didn't want to get him looking forward to a new cat if something falls through and we can't take him home. If the cat likes us, we can pick him up Sunday morning. My fiance will be picking my son up from kindergarten this afternoon, and he's going to tell him about the cat.
My son has always been around cats (his dad and I had two cats when he was born, and he now has one and so do we), and he knows how to treat an animal and how not to treat an animal. He's very good with them. The cat we have now is very...non-chalant about everything - she plays, but mostly (like a lot of cats) she just likes to sleep. She ignores my son, for the most part. I'm not sure how the new cat will be though. From what the shelter has told us, he's very calm as well, but we'll see!
So I'm just curious how you ladies would explain your pet's downfall? Of course we'll explain that he probably got hit by a car, but what I'm not sure about is how to convey that my son will have to be careful with the new cat (at least at first) but he is not made of glass and he's just as "able" as any normal cat.
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: My fiance got to head over there first, because he is off work at 11 on Fridays. He texted me a picture and I guess we get to take him home tonight!!! Originally it was Sunday. I'm so excited!!! :)
